  1. Oh I'm in LOVE with iviebaby's shop!! If we have a boy I'm so buying nursery items from there. I'd want to for a girl but I already have one for a girl planned out and I don't want to change my mind anymore lol.


  2. Many moons ago, I was in love with a band. On a few occasions, I purchased/won tickets that allowed me VIP access to meet the band and (most importantly) secured my spot closest to the stage. Their bodyguard had a very important rule: Don't be creepy. Considering that 99.9% of the people at meet and greets were women, it's important to understand that women can totally be creepy.

    I hate the thought that people just think that being creepy has everything to do with being "unattractive." Maybe to some people, that's what it means but for me, it does have to do with a vibe and with certain behaviours. Sometimes guys come off as slightly creepy when they're really just nervous or shy. I believe that the nervousness/shyness will overwhelm any creepy factors though. While some may revel in hearing the honks from a person driving by and "appreciating the view," I do not. I consider that creepy. Touching, inappropriate jokes, stalking...creepy. I think we all have a level of creepy, but there are people who take it way too far. Is it kind of creepy that I used to check my boyfriend's (then crush) Facebook page to see if there were any chickies writing to him? Probably. But it's not the level of creepy that will probably lead someone to genuine fear or danger.

    What a lot of these men don't realize is that there is a constant potential threat for women in the world. I'm not always aware of it, but I definitely feel it when I'm walking by myself at night. I sometimes put myself on high alert because I need to. I have to be cautious and I have to look out for myself, be aware of my body and my surroundings. That's life for me and for most men (especially those who don't have close relationships with females), it's not even a passing thought.

    In conclusion: It is subjective, but that's just the reality of the situation. It's totally okay to call dudes creepy.
