Movies are my weed.

I can get in big legal trouble if I burn one.

Speakng of burning films, a few years back there was a REALLY terrible film I can't remember the name of that got a limited release in theaters, and once they stopped sohwing the film, the owners realized that it was actually cheaper to burn the film prints rather then sending them back.

Thanks for the advice. I won't smoke weed if I'm mad, maybe if I'm a bit tweeked.

Another reason for this emotional low point for me is that a girl (named Leah) that I was trying to befriend wanted me the stay away from her and her roommates. What happened was that I stopped by their apartment door just a couple of times and wanted to know if they wanted to go to a movie or just hang out. On Facebook, Leah's friend (Taylor) told me to stop by and that they didn't want to hang out with me. This bothered me because a woman was accusing me of not being safe around; this crushed me both inside and outside.

I'm still on Facebook. It sucks that either one of them could tell me that to my face and tell me why they didn't feel safe around me.
I hate this bullshit.

Rob. You know how to say the right words at the right moment.
I feel that they don't hate me, but just tell me as a young adult.
This shit isn't in middle school, we're in college!!!!

They didn't feel "safe" around you? :? I'm a little confused here, are they afraid of you or something?

I only went to their apartment door a couple of times to ask them if they wanted to go hang out, go see a film, etc. On Facebook, Taylor told me to stay away from them and that they didn't feel safe with them. That's funny, because I volenteered to walk both Leah and Taylor home this past Holloween. So much for being "not safe" with me.

Sounds like you got casted into the dreaded "creepy guy" category.

Similarly to the "friend zone," being cast as a "creepy guy" effectively neuters your chances with whichever particular woman you have in mind. However, unlike being in the friend zone, you don't get to enjoy their company.

For reasons of their own (reasons that eclipse things like logic), woman will always find certain dudes creepy. Be it based on appearance, their moods at the time, who they're around, and what have you. It happens to every guy at some point during his life, most often occurring during adolescence and young adulthood.

Moreover, there's nothing you can really do to prevent it, unless you want to change yourself, which isn't the answer. If they're going to make presumptions about you before they even get to know you, then they probably aren't worth the effort of pursuing romantically. Just be yourself, the right woman is out there for you. A few others are available too, hahahaha.

If all else fails, do what I do. Put on a fake Irish accent and pretend to be on vacation in the United States. Guaranteed you'll have at least 3 woman swooning over you at any given time. You have to do it well though; if you sound Scottish, your not going to get any tail....

will presumably get shit for this but the way you come across on here makes me think that there might be some truth in what these girls think and that yr not entirely telling the whole story, but whatever. everyone is human, makes mistakes, appears clingy and needy sometimes and so on.

I always try to present myself as the way I am; I've told them that I'm sorry for bothering them and intruding, but they're not listening.
Now, they're planning to "report" me if I even just look at them again.
Such bullshit.

Yeah I don't get it either, maybe somebody spread some "creepy" rumors about you and they believed them or something like that.

My advice would be to just leave them alone. They clearly don't to have anything to do with you, and your attempts to change their minds aren't being heard. While your attempts to make them understand you aren't a harmful person are genuine, they already see you through their own biased lenses. It's unlikely they're going to see anything you do as anything other than what they're claiming it is now. Put another way - if you're bothering them, telling them you're sorry for bothering them is only going to be seen by them as continuing to bother them.

Question - How did you meet these girls? Did you become friendly with them at some point or did you just see them and randomly ask them to hang out? OtherBen brings up a good point, and you may be coming off as "creepy" without even realizing it.

Yeah, maybe they've had bad experiences with guys, so they're extremely wary about who they hang out with. Whatever the case may be, it's not your fault they're creeped out by you. The best thing is to just forget about them and find somebody else to hang out with.

Hi Corpen 11

I would second that you leave them alone - they have no interest in you and they are behaving rather foolishly.

Have a chat about the incidents with the person you are "talking" to. It will help you distance your self from them and realize that this is NOT your fault.

One of the things i do when i'm feeling down is to give myself a fun project. Like train my dog to do something, or watch 5 movies by a specific director, or do a piece of work round the house that I've been putting off. I always feel better after! It's all part of regaining my self esteem.

Lastly, I am impressed by your courage in talking so openly on here. I am not sure i could manage that. Hats off to you!

Rob

I second this. I wouldn't be able to do it either. Good for you, Corey.
