Is starting to set in now. Ahhhh.
Last night, New Boy went out on our dateeeee in the city (which was awesome, except for him being sick. Which wasn't awesome. But everything else was!). So anyway, we took the train back to Brooklyn and since I live in hell (or for those of you in South Brooklyn, I live in New Mill Basin) I also had to take a bus from the F train down Avenue U. Then I have about a 15 minute walk through my dark, quiet neighborhood from the bus to my house.
I've done this walk a million times and rarely if ever have any issues on it. I'm usually texting someone the whole time anyway and/or singing along to music through my headphones. *Shrug
Last night, however, I walk about 5 minutes down the first dark, quiet block. I have my headphones in so I don't hear this dude come up behind me, and out of the corner of my eye I see him walk right next to me. So I jump back and expect him to keep walking (figured he also lived in my neighborhood and I was just walking too slow for his liking, so he walked past me) but no. He just stops and turns to me.
Now, it's 2 in the fucking morning. I'm cold. I have to poop. I don't have the patience for this stupidity at this time of night. I take one ear bud out and ask "can I help you?" The rest of the conversation was as follows:
Creep: I saw you on the bus and you look very pretty tonight.
Creep: So I wanted to say hi cuz you're very beautiful.
Creep: Would you like to hang out sometime?
Creep: Come on, let me buy you a drink (WHERE. WHERE IN FUCKING MILL BASIN ARE YOU BUYING ME A DRINK AT 2AM YOU WEIRD. FUCK.)
Me: No. I'm going home.
Creep: It doesn't have to be now. Maybe later. Please? You're just so attractive
Me: Home. I'm going home. I have a boyfriend. No.
Creep: [super defeated at this point] Ok, goodnight [walks back in the direction we both came from]
I was so just confused and put off by this that I didn't even process how UNBELIEVABLY FUCKING CREEPY AND FRIGHTENING IT WAS. After the Creep left I called New Boy who stayed on the phone with me til I got home, and I was like "yeah that was kind of weird." And now I'm sitting here thinking about it and HOLY SHIT. What. The. FUCK.
