15 Signs You're Addicted To Creeping

You say creeping, I say doing extensive research

Posted on

1. You clear your browser every time someone asks to use your computer

The last thing you want is your friend to see you were creeping on your crush’s sister’s friend’s cousin.

2. You can find someone’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter account in 5 minutes or less

Give me their first and last name and in turn I’ll give you every social media site they’ve ever been on

3. You have to think before you speak

“What does the tattoo on your back stand for?” “It stands for…wait, how’d you know I have a tattoo there?” “Did I say tattoo? I meant igloo, there’s an igloo on your back” *laughs awkwardly*

4. You’ve created anonymous accounts just to follow certain people

Because friend requesting your boyfriend’s ex through your personal account would be weird.

5. Google is your best friend

Alright, let me just paste your picture in the search bar and see how many profiles are associated with that pic.

6. You’ve “accidentally” bumped into your crush

According to Foursquare you’re having coffee at Starbucks. Well would you look at that, I’m suddenly craving a Pumpkin Spice Latte.

7. You’ve creeped using your friend’s profile

Friends are there to help you, make you laugh, and let you use their Facebook to creep on your crush who they just so happen to be friends with.

8. Family and friends refuse to tell you their crush’s name

“I’m not going to tell you their name because then you’re going to stalk them” is something you’ve been told often.

9. You live in fear of the Like button

What’s the quickest way to have an anxiety attack? Accidentally liking a picture your ex posted five years ago.

10. You don’t mind snooping through hundreds of old pictures

200 pictures? Don’t mind if I do. Oh look, he was a banana for Halloween. Bananas are my favorite fruit. So much in common already.

11. Sometimes you lose track of who you were originally creeping on

Alright, I’m going to creep on my boyfriend. Oh look, his sister’s profile is public…wait, here is a mutual friend of theirs…huh, who’s that man with the weird mustache in the background…how did I end up on YouTube?

12. You’ve bailed on dates because of something you saw online

Sorry, I can’t go out with you tonight or ever because according to a picture you posted two years ago you hate macaroni and cheese. That’s a deal breaker.

13. You don’t need a specific reason to creep on someone

You creep when you’re bored, you creep on the bus, you creep on your butcher, you creep because it’s a way of life.

14. Private accounts infuriate you

You will not rest until you find a way to look at their account. It might take hours, days, months but you’ll eventually get it.
