10 Most Creepy Things To Say To A Guy
Women have an inherent creep alert in their minds when it comes to men. Whether it is knowing what type of guys to avoid on Tinder or when not to say yes to a second date, there is a tiny voice in their head – call it intuition or sixth sense – that tells them “he is a creep, stay away”.
Yet, so many women fall prey to the creepiest things to say to men without even realizing that they may be raising a red flag. To make sure you’re not one of them, take a look at this rundown on the 10 most creepy things to say to a guy that you must steer clear of at all costs:
1. I think you look like my father (to the boyfriend)
Girl you just stumbled upon your Electra complex. You definitely do not want to date your father’s doppelgänger. Most certainly, no guy would be interested in a girl who displays such obvious daddy issues. It’s definitely one of the 10 creepy things to say to a guy you’re interested in. Stop doing this and soon you will have somebody who looks like himself and loves you.

2. I love to look at you when you sleep
This isn’t just creepy but also one of the scary things to say to someone. Yes, even if that someone is your significant other.
You are not being a hopeless romantic, but an insomniac. Please check with a doctor. Sleep is more important than your romantic night view. Imagine waking up to a pair of eyes in the darkness staring right at you.
3. Let’s get matching t-shirts!
Now, you have taken the lovey-dovey game too far. You are stripping a person not only of his clothes from time to time but also his choice of garments. And you definitely do not want people to awkwardly gawk at your twinning sport.
These are some creepy words to say that are best not vocalized. Imagine the cringe it will cause your partner, and just kill the idea before it turns into a full-blown shopping plan.
4. I need to check something. What is your Facebook password?
No, you do not! Privacy rights are already compromised in a relationship and now you want to be a consenting stalker as well? Some things should be left unheard, and well, this one, unsaid. Demanding to know his social media passwords is hands-down one of the most creepy things to say to a guy, irrespective of whether you’re seeing him casually or have been married to him for a decade.
Understand the importance of space in a relationship, and take a step back.
5. “This is forever” after the very first date
No, woman, it was just a date! One of the things men notice on the first date is how easy-going you are. So, don’t get your priorities all mixed up and take things forward one step at a time. That person might not even turn up for a second date, so don’t sit there planning or alluding to what sharing a life with him would feel like.

6. I think I was your mother in my last birth
This one ranks right at the top of creepy things to say to a guy if you want to scare him away. Ergo, something you shouldn’t say to a guy you’re interested in.
If you’re dating or getting there, he wants a girlfriend and not a parent. Remember he already has two. He might not also approve of your crash course on babysitting. So good luck with that.
7. I love you so much that I want to eat you
You might be way too much into Alt J and hum all day. “Please don’t go, I love you so, I will eat you whole” but better try not to be cannibalistic. He is a human, not a burger. This may come across as cute in certain situations, but by and large, this is one of the creepy things to say to anyone even if it’s said with a lot of love.
8. Funny nicknames
Babe, baby, boo, honey, sweetheart are fine, but giving your guy funny nicknames isn’t as endearing IRL as it appears in your head. Even more so if you’ve just started dating and are still getting to know each other.
He already has a name given to him when he was born. And naming is not gaming at all, especially with weird endearment terms like pumpkin, pie, honeybun. Too much into cliché, huh? Get a pet. Or a teddy bear.

9. Let’s celebrate our 24-hour kissing anniversary
Well, we all love birthdays and anniversaries, but what happens when you take it too far? Your anniversaries are backlogging your entire system. Did you forget your first anniversary of the day when he touched your hand?
Count this as one of the 10 creepy things you should never, ever say to a guy you want to keep in your life.
10. Let’s not use the condom tonight!
No, it doesn’t sound romantic at all. On the contrary, it is one of the scary things to say to someone unless you’re in a committed relationship and are actively trying to have a baby. With risks of unwanted pregnancy and STIs staring you in the face, this is just downright foolhardy and stupid. Avoid it at all costs, not just because you don’t want to come across as a creepy or clingy girlfriend but also for your own sake.
So next time you even think of saying any of these, put a restraining order on yourself. You do not want to be creepy like the girl next door.
