A lot of times men do things that they think are completely innocent, which come off "creepy" to women.

And now people on the internet are letting them know what these things are through a Reddit thread.

Things all started when Reddit user u/coinkeeper8 asked: "What’s something men do that comes across as creepy?"

People didn't hold back, as a lot of women (and men in fact) came forward with their responses.

You may just find you're guilty of a few of them.

1. "They stand an inch away from you when you're in a line."

You may want to move back fellas…

2. "They sit next to you when you're the only two people in a place with many, many seats."

One person added: "I'm a guy, and this annoys me. Hell, it annoys me when there are plenty of parking spaces and someone parks next to me."

3. "Hey, where do you work? Oh, which one? Yeah, there's like six of them. Which one do you work at? No, I won't show up at your work. Lol. Hahaha. Hey… Hey… Hey… Did you block me? What did I do wrong?"

We can see why he was blocked to be honest!

4. "I’m a guy but a semi-frequent bar patron. Whenever guys ask bartenders what time they get off that they’ve had little to no interaction with is incredibly creepy. It gives off 'I’ll be waiting for you in the parking lot' vibes."

Another personal agreed: "It is not even just in bars. I did a summer job in a library and a guy kept asking about my shifts. My male manager had to ask him to leave me alone."

5. "Speaking as a 5'2" (1.57) woman, guys you barely know or even total strangers lifting you up off the ground to hug you."

Another added: "Or when they constantly make comments about how light you look/small/short you are. 'I can toss you around I bet.' Ewww."

6. "Touch my waist to move by me. I'll drop-kick you. There is no reason for it, and it makes me irate every single time."

Someone else agreed: "They always defend it as being non-sexual too. I'll accept that justification when they ever start doing it to men."

7. "Not backing off when a woman indicates in any way whatsoever verbally or physically she isn’t interested, yet they continue or think they can continue to harass you or change your mind."

Chiming in on this one, someone else said: "I genuinely have zero ideas how there are guys out there with this much confidence. If I make anything that could even be considered as a move, and I get rejected, then I am getting as far away from that situation as I possibly can immediately and cringing about it in the shower/morning commute for years to come."

8. "Ask you out while you are at work or in a situation in which you cannot leave."

Agreeing, someone said: "Or if you are a bartender or waitress and they will only tip you if you talk to them or give out your number. Like no, you can keep your tip. I am working – I'm not here to keep you company. You can go find an escort if you want a paid company.

9. "Me: 'I'm married.' Shows ring. Random guy: 'I don't believe you. They all say that.' Then it just gets creepy because no matter what you say, they just don't believe anything and keep pressing you to leave with them. That hyper-aggressiveness is creepy."

Another agreed: "I had a guy respond to 'I'm married' with 'Oh, yeah? Where's your husband then?' As if married women are chaperoned by their husbands on every errand."

10. "Telling you to smile."

Sharing an example, someone else wrote: "When I worked a third shift at a gas station, I used to pull my best Aubrey Plaza deadpan face when men asked me to smile and say some variation of 'I would, but I went through a windshield and my face is paralysed' and sometimes give my best asymmetrical creepy one eye squinting one eye wide open and twitching ‘attempt’ at a smile. This usually seemed to be a turn-off."

11. "Unsolicited d*ck pics. Like y’all be AirDropping them. I had a guy tell me that women appreciate it because they want to know what they’re working with. Nobody is going to work that sh*t if that’s your opening."

Maybe ask before sending them, lads.

12. "Talk to me (a male) about how much they disrespect women like I'm 'in on it,' especially if I've never met the guy."

Not all fellas are the same.

13. "When men ask: "Where's my hug?'"

Not cool guys, not cool.

14. "Asking if I live alone. I just find this question so creepy and intrusive. I can’t imagine they'd asked another male this question."

Creep level 100.

15. "Call women they don’t know by terms of endearment."

Eek, maybe tone it down a notch if you're doing any of these, guys!
