Creepy or Romantic? I have seen many movies, from the early 2000's and 90's where a guy would take pictures of the girl he is in love with, secretely. Nowadays thats "creepy" but back then it seemed so romantic! Have you ever secretely taken photos of your crush or love? At 1:43 in the video you can see what i mean... here is an example of what i am talking about
It depends whether your romantic affection is mutual or not.
If your crush has not reciprocated your affection - then yes, this is very very creepy and she probably would not be impressed with you taking secret photos of her. She could interpret that as an invasion of her privacy, or literal stalking.
If your romantic affections have been reciprocated, then there isn't too much problem as long as you show her at least some of the photos to show her what you are trying to capture. (She might think you are trying to catch something pervy on camera).
Ultimately, you need to address the reason that you feel it important to capture these photos secretly. Perhaps it gives you a feeling of possessiveness over her, or maybe you feel that you gain a closer connection in some way...
Dude, if you like the girl, you should just approach her and talk to her and get her number, take her on a few dates and become her boyfriend. Going down the route you are taking is not the path to a) feeling like a man, b) getting good romantic experience or c) getting the girl.
I wouldn't classify it as creepy, though I would not be able to give my personal opinion without it happening to me. I believe the reasoning behind most women's "creepy" remarks would probably be on the simple fact that people these days have so much technology that it is almost guaranteed for that "secret photo" to wind up on the internet somewhere. I know that if my photos ended up on the internet then I would be slightly pissed off.
Lol, I did it before. I don't really care. As long as it's a flattering picture of me that they are taking then it's aight with me. What's creepy is making a collage of photos of that persons face from photos you've taken or making them your wallpaper on your phone (which with the latter I have done before - not my proudest moment). That stuffs creepy, but taking a photo to admire their beauty or handsomeness is fine to me. It's like when girls have celebrity crushes and they have posters of that person all over their wall. So many girls have done this and many young girls continue to do this to this day. Yet, it's not considered creepy just because they are a celebrity. I think it's not creepy and I feel the same should apply to a crush. If you take it just so you can have a reminder of what their face looks like once in a while it's not a problem. People need to find a better definition of what 'creepy' really is.
It's creepy ! I did it before and I'm not proud. I burst laughing whenever I remember myself trying to take photos or sending ones from a mutual friend's phone or laptop... *sigh* I was very young xD but I regret nothing !
One of the things that always cracks me up about romantic movies, particularly romantic comedies, is that a lot of times the guy wins over some out-of-his-league girl with things that would probably prompt a real life girl to get a restraining order. Real life girls don't like persistence from a guy they already turned down once, I don't think. 1.bp.blogspot.com/.../sayanything.jpg
I've done it once? There was this extremely attractive girl who I saw at this party and my friends, who weren't at the party but was texting me via group messaging, told me to take a picture of her and send it to them, so I did. I mean it is a little creepy, but awhile back this girl took a picture of me secretely but I found out, and I felt flattered more so than creeped out by it.
