Websites try to make internet dating less creepy
But the flip-side of this particular coin is that being socially well-calibrated helps you be creepy… So let’s look at some specific examples of creepers and how they could’ve done things differently.
In Daytona, Florida, a 73-year old man was banned from all beaches in Volusia County for 6 months. He was approaching young women in hopes of getting a sugar-baby – that is, a relationship predicated on a pre-arranged financial arrangement.
He approached a 16-year old Oviedo girl and her two 18-year old friends.
Upon hearing the girls’ ages, he held up the bra pad and said that he was looking for someone to fill it.
On the other side was a picture of a young woman with an older man, an email address and the words “Ask Me About Your Allowance”.
Principle Rooney’s pursuit of Ferris from takes on a very different tone when you realize that the actor playing him was a pedophile.
All that it takes to be creepy is to make someone feel unsafe.
Among his other attention-getting accoutrements, he would wear a shirt saying “Accepting Applications 4a Sugar Baby”.
Women apparently found the shirt amusing and would ask to pose for photos with him – photos that would be incredibly popular on Facebook.
