I can say with confidence everyone is guilty to a certain level of creeping on someone. It is hard not to do with todays social media and technology. It makes it pretty easy for someone to find out about another person. However, some people take it to a whole other level. They go above and beyond the little innocent creeping to almost stalking in a sense. ::queue Michael Jackson:: “I always feel like somebody’s watching me..”
I have creeped on people via social media. It is like window browsing. You can look, but do not touch. Amateurs are bad at it. Some people do not know that LinkedIn shows you who looked at your profile or it tells you one of these people in a group looked at your profile. You can always guess who it was that looked at your profile. I have had numerous ex-boyfriends wives or girlfriends, old friends, or ex-boyfriends themselves show up on your LinkedIn. Rookies. There are the rookie mistakes of creeping on someone on Facebook and you end up requesting them as a friend. That is my all time favorite. I typically call those broads out for shits and giggles. They are nine times out of ten friends with my guy friend’s new girlfriend. This is all the innocent creeping.
One of the levels I have not graduated to is the drive by someone’s house. I know quite a few females who have driven by the guy’s house. Some have taken pictures as evidence to what cars they saw at the house. Some have made me be the driver, so the guy would not recognize my car. It is almost like stalking a person. What drives a person to do this? Trust? Insecurity? Paranoia? I know a handful of broads that had decoy Facebook accounts. They used them to creep. The problem was they took it to a different level. They would tell people it was a cousin. They had a whole back story for this pretend person. I had a girlfriend get mad at me once because I told someone it was really her. Who has that kind of spare time to invest in making someone up? If you have that little of trust in someone, you should probably not be dating them or interested in them. Another level would be messaging other people who you think are interested in your someone. I know a few ladies who have indulged in that guilty pleasure. They try to mark their territory. The problem with that is no one really cares. If a wedding ring cannot deter someone from going after another person that is married, your message on social media will fall on deaf ears. Those types of messages will be laughed at and looked at as crazy desperation.
Some of my girlfriends are almost private investigator status. They can find anything out. My one best friend saw a picture of her man at a fancy bar and she felt like something was off that evening. She looked up his ex girlfriend’s instagram account. That broad had the exact same picture up. They may not have been in each other’s pictures, but they were most definitely at the same bar. I would say the only way to possibly get away with cheating is by not having any social media. There is always a cookie crumb trail left behind.
The problem with all of the creeping and stalking antics it kind of makes you look crazy. It is not the type of crazy that majority of people want others to see in the daylight. Most people like to hide that crazy in a locked trunk. These gestures also do not help you keep your love interest or significant other in the long run. Who wants to be with someone that you have to keep tabs on at all times? You can stay ten steps ahead all the time, but you may be the one left behind in the end.
