Buckle up, cause we’re gonna dive into some wild stories today. This avalanche of weird began when used sybaritic_footstool took to r/AskReddit and asked:
To the surprise of nobody, there were a huge pool of responses. So many, in fact, that even the highlight (lowlight) list is quite long.
Here are just some of the stories, with suggested titles should they ever get optioned for books or movies (call me, Hollywood. And Reddit.)
1. The Story of M
I was at a friend’s birthday party for her dog (probably was just an excuse to have people over and get drunk) and another friend, let’s call her M, is also there. I had known M for a couple of years, but I only really ever see her a couple of times a year. She is very drunk, and also very married. Her husband was also at the same party.
At one point in the night, she asks me if I have a girlfriend (I did not), if I am looking for a girlfriend, where i’d been looking for a girlfriend, etc. Then she says that I had been looking in all the wrong places and that, if I wanted a good girl, I should “let her know”.
During this conversation, she also kept trying to grab my hand, and so at one point i made sure to always be holding a handful of mini-pretzels in both of my hands as a sort of excuse to not be able to hold hands. I can’t hold hands if I am holding pretzels. Logic.
Then finally she says “I like you, iseldomwipe. I really like you”. I’m like “ok”. This repeats for a while until she says “stop saying ‘ok’. It makes me feel like You think I’m bullsh**ting”
Then she keeps following me around the room and keeps trying to make me dance with her until I leave.
Her husband was pretty much always in the same room as us no more than a few feet away while this was all happening. Thought I was crazy and imagining it all until another friend asked me on the same night as we were leaving: “Was M trying to hit on you?”
2. Getting a Head
Girl in my dorm. She had a crush on my roommate. My roommate clearly didn’t like and told her several times. Things got out of hand and there were times where my roommate would come running back to the room yelling “lock the door, lock the door” and moments later the girl and her friend would try to come barge in without permission.
What’s creepy is this next part.
Apparently one night we accidentally left our room unlocked and she decided to sneak in and play/rub our heads. We didn’t wake up but her roommate told us what she did a couple days later. I haven’t seen her in about a year and I’m quite glad.
3. Kicked to the Curb
This younger girl who I never even spoke to once in high school had a crush on me. I got a note from her in my locker asking if I wanted to go out with her. I had no idea of how to get it back to her, so I just wrote “no” and taped it to my locker. Then she started following me everywhere. I would try to talk to her, but she would just keep walking away, pretending I wasn’t talking to her.
This goes on for like two years. Then I was hanging out by myself one day around the neighborhood, and she comes walking up with three guys who wanted to kick my a** for some dumb unrelated stuff. She somehow found out about it and brought them to me. After an embarrassing scene with me diffusing the situation with these angry gentlemen, they leave, and she finally sits down on the curb right next to me and starts flirting.
All I could do was just stare at her enormous bangs with a WTF expression until she got embarrassed and left.
4. Knife to Meet You
During my last year of high school I would tutor students after school. One day about halfway through the year a new girl came in and sat next to me.
The first thing she said was something along the lines of “Do you wanna see my birth control?” She had an implant in her arm and showed me where it was. She then felt my arm and told me I was hairy.
For the rest of the time she kept prying for personal info like who my friends were and where I lived. I didn’t see her in tutoring after that, but one day during lunch she came up to my table where I was just chatting with my friends and inserted herself into the conversation before leaving randomly.
I heard a few days later that she was suspended for either having drugs or a knife in her backpack.
I was 22 and asked a girl I’d met out. She seemed nice at first. Met her in a little cafe while I was waiting to meet some friends and we got talking about Pokemon and some other stuff for 20 or 30 minutes before adding each other on facebook. Only weird thing was that in that time she told me she’d been r**ed by her ex.
I thought maybe she was just being open about it as a way of dealing with the trauma so I let it slide and messaged her a bit later to see if she’d be interested in a date. She told me that she already had a boyfriend but that she’d love to hang out as friends which was fair enough so I agreed to that and we met up a few days later.
She’d brought her boyfriend with her which I expected. I got the sense he wasn’t too comfortable with me which I can understand but what threw me was she also brought her ex. I can’t 100% say it was the same ex she’d mentioned but he really gave off that vibe with the way he talked and behaved around her.
She kept on talking about dead babies and abortions obsessively as well. You couldn’t change the subject at all. Creeped me the h**l out so I just sat there with a smile and acted civil while internally going “please don’t kill me!” and I haven’t spoken to her since.
Not so much as the girl herself but her mom. I dated this girl back in high school and I went over to her house a few times just to hang out and such. But her mom made me incredibly uncomfortable by asking a billion different questions about my past relationships, my intentions with her daughter, even when i last looked at p**n. Etc. Etc.
She had to be in the same room as us at all times. She also had complete control over my girlfriends phone as well so she monitored every single message her and i sent back and forth.
Obviously due to this, that relationship didn’t last long.
7. Poker Night
Took her out on a date. We got drunk. Breaks down saying how she used fentanyl with her ex and ended up in hospital. Now she has to use a catheter and bag for the rest of her life as it f**ked up her urinary system. She was screaming “I have a drug induced bladder disorder”!!!! She is 23. Cried, tried to get me to finger her beside the catheter. Wasn’t feeling it..
Then decided I was the enemy and called cops saying I am assaulting her. I recorded her as she went apes**t calling me names. Cops show up. She is having some sort of mental breakdown. She ends up transported to a psych observation unit at 1 am. Ended up playing poker.
Couple of days later she texts me and asks, “wanna hang out?”
8. The Big It
A random guy at the bar called her friend a slut and ran off. I guess I looked enough like him, so I got three haymakers to the face. I managed to avoid boxing a female in a public bar, which was my goal, and things seemed to subside.
She later cornered me in the sh**ter, it was a single person s**tter, I guess I forgot to lock the door. I was informed that I should leave with her and got back to her place or I would be accused of some pretty heinous s**t. The bartender, saw her on the prowl and sent the bouncer after. He told her to f**k off and not come back.
On her way out, things got racial. Big words were flying. I was an n-word lover. There were sand-n-words everywhere. All of us were remanded to the countries of our origin.
She was waiting on the street when I left and tried to follow me, but I just jogged away and she tripped and started crying. It was tragic, yet also funny.
9. Baby Crazy
The one and only time I used tinder, I hooked up with this girl in Arkansas. The s** only lasted until she begged me to come inside her, which is a hot thing to hear I guess, but not from someone you just met. I told her “I’m not gonna do that” and she pushes me off and starts crying, saying things like “I just want baby so someone will love me”. I felt kinda bad for her so I talked her down, bought her some food, and she thanked me and went home.
Nothing too weird about that, I just figured she was going through a rough time, it happens. Until about a week later I come home from work and my front door is open.
It looked like someone tried to yank it off the hinges. Then I noticed her car parked across the street. This little psycho had gotten s**t face drunk, drove to my house, BROKE IN, and was sleeping naked in my bed.
Cops were called and she panicked and left. Don’t know what happened to her after that, but I sure as f**k never used Tinder again.
10. Liar, Liar 2
dated a girl who was close with her cousin. i slowly learned everyone hated her cousin and they were afraid to tell me to avoid the girl/cousin combo, because it was no good. kept dating the girl, and cousin started be around more…it was fine at first and then the lying started. never in my life had i met a compulsive liar before, so i couldn’t believe that no one was saying anything when this girl blatantly lied. crazy lies. insane lies that made no sense. non-stop, constant, really weird lies. “i once fell out of an airplane” level lies.
it got worse. i told girl i don’t want to be around cousin anymore. girl understands. cousin gets my number and then calls/texts me saying she just drove by my friends house and girl was there. she’s cheating on me, cousin says. cousin lives 45 minutes away and would never be driving near my friend’s house. i tell her never communicate with me again. she says “but i thought we were friends”
block number. dump girl. run away.
11. Dopplegang Her
Once, an acquaintance added me on fb.
When I clicked on her profile, it said she was in a relationship with someone.
That someone was a fake account of me with my picture.
12. A Shot in the Dark
I started going to a new doctor, the receptionist was cute, so I flirted a bit.
In a waiting room, with other patients around. It was pretty innocent, she reciprocated, I figured it was all in good fun. She escalated a bit, stuff like scheduling me for days she was there, calling me directly with reminders, etc.
Then she went into the records, got my cell number, and started texting me. Telling me she wants to meet up, she’s not happy with her husband, they never have sex any more, etc.
I noped out as fast as I could.
13. Son Down
I was in new orleans watching some street performers go crazy and a mom came up behind me and fully grabbed both of my a** cheeks.
I was 18 and standing next to both of my parents and she said “hey you remind me of my son” which is probably one of the weirdest things to say in that moment
14. Slumber Partly
she befriended my younger sister just to get her to ask her to a sleepover.
I woke up in the middle of the night with her laying in bed with me.
I was 17 y/o
she was 13.

15. A Girl’s Best Friend
Not a guy myself, but one I dated had a couple fun stories.
One was a girl he got set up with by friends on a blind date. As they went out to dinner, they passed a jewelry store, and she insisted on going in so they could “pick out rings for when they get engaged.”
He paid for dinner and noped right out.
16. In the Shadows
When I was 22, I was hanging out with a couple friends just grilling and drinking when one of them was suddenly like “do you guys wanna go to a costume party?”
The entire night, there’s this one girl who’s sitting next to me on the couch but she hasn’t said a single word. Not one. I don’t think much of it, some people are shy, it’s whatever.
But then, during a lull in the party, out of nowhere, she gets closer to me, looks me dead in the eye, and whispers “I like blooooood.” Then shifts back to her spot like nothing happened.
I turned to my friend and was just like “we have to leave.”
I still think about that night sometimes.
17. Three’s Company
I was nice to a freshman girl when I was a senior.
She told me that her two boyfriends did not satisfy her sexually, and implied that perhaps I could.
It was a little creepy.
18. Dangerous Games
I was living in New Orleans and this older woman grabbed my nuts from behind. I naturally freaked out, and she laughed and went “oh it’s this game we’re playing” – wtf kind of game is that?
I was so shocked I kinda just walked away.
19. Mood Swing
We were kids, early teens. I thought she was mad cute. She was telling me how once she pushed a boy she liked off the swings and he broke his arm.
She was bragging about it. And she liked me now..
“Cool”, I thought. “I will now proceed to never see you again”.
I had a friend who went absolutely crazy after her boyfriend broke up with her. Cutting, trying to force him to get back together, getting him kicked out of the group to isolate him only for it to back fire and throw a fit. Etc.
And that was only freshman year.
When he started dating another girl from our group senior year she pretended to be cool…only to lie to the girl and try and convince her to break up with him because he was “definitely” texting her last night! Oh and also ge told her he hated her, and that she was ugly, and that he actually loved her (crazy girl) and was only with the new girl to make her jealous.
21. The Litter Lover
At my buddies cottage in muskoka one summer, he knew this girl that had a cottage there as well. We all were around the ages of 14-17.
This one girl was talking about how she liked to pee in cat litter and then form the cat litter into dildo shape and freeze it.
Was at a bar with a large group of friends when this girl who was not affiliated with our group came up to me and started unbuttoning my shirt.
After a few buttons, she just slid her hands around my torso. I backed off and the girls in our friend group blocked her from coming into contact with me again.
23. The Pig
Girl was hitting on me at a bar. I was pretty dismissive and finally she said “oh I’ll let you buy me a drink”.
I responded saying I was married and please leave me alone. She called me a pig and stormed off and later in the night we caught her following us to another club.
Threatened to call the police on her and she stopped.
24. The Pits
I went out with some friends to watch a game at a bar. Once leaving to head back home as we are all walking out this group of girls clearly hammered at like 11 in the morning walks in and beelines towards our group.
One runs out and says you should come with me and jams her fingers straight up and into my armpit. It was pretty warm out so I was sweaty, and this girl takes her hand out after I move her arm away from me and then sniffs her fingers and winks at me.
According to my friends, I have never had a more puzzled look on my face.
25. The Aristocats
I knew a girl who seemed kind of off but was into one of my buddies so I was willing to give her the benefit of the doubt.
Then for some reason I went and visited her apartment and was chatting with my buddy as I listened to her in the other room for ten minutes meow like a cat at her computer screen.
That… Changed me some.
26. The Fire Starter
I was bored once at a small, local festival and didn’t want to be there so I just got a drink and started walking around aimlessly when I noticed a fire-breather.
The display was interesting and she was pretty hot, when she was on break she went to get a drink and we started talking.
She seemed nice, we had a laughed but her break was up and she resumed her display so I left her to it and continued to wander around.
5 mins later security was called to her display…
Turns out some crazy girl whom I had never met before was following me around the festival and assaulted the fire breather, she had claimed that we (me & crazy) were together and firebreather was trying to break us up.
27. I Knew Where You Lived Last Summer
Met a girl online, we chat and setup a date. Date goes fine she’s a little weird, a little sheltered but seems nice. Not much chemistry but I think that can take some time so we give it another go have a second date. Confirm I have no interest in a relationship with this girl on the second date so we talk it out no hard feelings let’s be friends.
Fast forward 1.5 years I’m in my kitchen with some friends getting ready to go out for my birthday dinner when we hear a knock on the door.
I go check and no one is there but there is a box with my name on it. There is a card and some gifts which would be nice if this girl had ever been to my house before. I had moved since our two dates and still have no idea how she found me.
28. There Goes the Neighborhood
I was accused of this. My husband and I moved and we happened to buy in a neighborhood that adjoined the one my ex and his new wife bought. Weird.
Many years and many children later we moved further away. Guess who lives across the street? It was mildly weird until his wife and I met at the mailboxes one day and talked. Now our kids are friends and ride bikes and play basketball and such.
29. It Follows
In elementary school there was a new Spanish girl who had a crush on me and would literally be nonstop staring at me and following me.
Me and my friends tested it. In class they would look and see she’d be staring at me. In recess we went to the very far corner of the field and she followed, so I went back to the school wall and she followed, so I told the teachers and they finally got her to stop following me.
She disappeared a few days later. Nobody knew where she went.
30. The Camper
This girl followed me home after a date and stayed outside my house and when I came out the next morning and acted like it was Sooooooooo funny we bumped into each other……
I told her I well call the cops and she ran.
31. A Way Through
There was this girl who was a freshman when I was a senior. I had heard of her through friends and I met her once or twice. I guess she developed a crush on me. A mutual friend told me that she thought I liked her and I said it was a misunderstanding and that I was only interested in being friends. Next thing I know this girl is showing up at my work multiple times a shift and when I go to sit out at my car on break she would come up and try to talk to me if I had my windows down.
She was transferred to a school for people with problems and there she would take peoples phones and try to call me, text me, or message me on social media. Eventually they stopped giving her access to technology and the texts stopped. With the recent coronavirus and the closing of every school in my state.
This girl was sent back to live with her dad and I saw her in my store the other day, i don’t think she saw me and I hope she has moved on.
32. Bases Loaded
In fifth grade she lived like a few houses away and could see me in my backyard from her window.
While I played baseball out back she videoed me and even hired her friend to record and talk to me a bunch shudder
33. Power Tripping
My first legitimate relationship was with a super clingy girl that knew way too much about my house after only being there like 3 times. Parents were out of town and we were sitting in the hot tub when the power died. She said “oh you probably need to just reset the breaker, it’s in the laundry room on the left wall labeled ‘hot tub’.”
I’m like “how the f**k do you know that?”
She got nervous and was like “uhhh I dunno.”
I broke up with her after she started telling her family that we’re spending the rest of our lives together and saying stuff like
“When we get a house…” “When we have kids…” “When we get a dog….”
I met her on a dating app and only knew her for 3 months, but started showing all the creepy symptoms after 1. 1 month
34. The Visit
About ten weird girls I didn’t know started sending me really creepy snapchats, – “we’re coming to visittttt” that kind of stuff, then they turned up outside my house and I didn’t know how, but they stayed there for a couple hours before getting bored when I didn’t come out.
They also sent me weird photos of my family they took.
Turns out they used snap maps off a friend to get my address and stalked my dad on his way to work.
35. Drive Bye
I was once someone’s “creepy girl” story.
Basically I used to drive by my boyfriend at the time (and even when he was my ex)’s house and sometimes drop in unexpectedly to say hi for a few minutes and then leave. At least once he saw me go by and not stop. I just waved.
He legitimately thought (and asked if) I might have been stalking him. I was too embarrassed to let him know that the only other route to my girl friend’s house had a roundabout and one-ways that I didn’t know how to navigate.
36. Running In
Around February I started talking to a girl. She came across as really nice, and we hung out a couple of times. After about a week she seemed to need way more attention. She’d double, triple text if I wasn’t responding in an hour.
I worked at a department store, which is how we met. She started showing up to talk when I was working. At first it was just once a week, so it didn’t bother me. After a little while she’d begin showing up nearly everyday and hanging around for hours. The weird thing is, I hadn’t told her my work schedule.
I finally figured it out when she “ran into me” at a restaurant with my family. After that, I was creeped out. Never spoke to her again.
As it turns out, she was stalking me on the Snapchat map to figure out where I was when I wasn’t texting her back.
37. The Insatiable
Dated a gal for a while in my early 20s. She was my first regular sexual partner. Turns out she was a bit of a nympho, I was young and really rose to the occasion, there was no way I was going to disappoint my first. I gave so much that I let myself get overly tired, got mono and spent a week in the hospital.
I broke up with her after that. She got drunk at parties and told people about how amazing the s** had been (I’m not bragging, it was stupid…all the d**ned time) and how she’ll never find anyone else that can do that for her.
She also stalked me for about a year. She would show up when I left work, when I turned and aisle in the grocery store, when I ate at a local restaurant, when going in or out of my apartment. Left me notes, phone messages, etc.
she finally gave up…but it was about a year before she quit trying to get back with me.
Was in high school, saw a really quiet girl who kept to herself. I felt bad because I had been that shy at one time. Struck up a conversation and she seemed odd but decent. Slowly over time she got weirder and weirder until she showed me her “art book” that was full of pictures of me, my name written all over the place, and pictures of my friends with their faces X’d out. She ended up stalking me relentlessly, calling my phone nonstop for weeks, she left tons of voicemails when I stopped answering that varied from apologizing to hating me for not answering. That was in 2001.
I ran into her again accidentally, at her work, in 2011. She immediately rushed over and started interrogating me. It was a fast food place, I left my food and never went back. Figured surely that was the end of it.
Nope, 2017 I signed up for jujitsu classes. After a few weeks I added some people from the class that I enjoyed to my facebook. Apparently one of them was her uncle, which caused her to almost immediately (within 10 minutes of him accepting the friend request) start messaging and cyberstalking me. Guess who suddenly became VERY interested in jujitsu? She did. I dropped out of the class. It’s been 3 years since I’ve seen her, I’m pretty sure I’m due for another run in sometime in the next 2-4 years.
Reading through all of those stories has made me want to go buy some extra locks for my doors.
While I’m doing that, what are your “creepy girl” stories?
