I went to the mall with my friends today and we all got this awful feeling that a really scary person was by us. We felt extremely warm, the back of our necks tingled, the hair on our body stood up, we started looking around nervously, we felt sick to our stomach...etc. we sat down in starbucks and this REALLY scary creepy looking guy was STARING AT US for honestly 2 minutes like he wanted to rape/kill us. He was in his 60s and honestly looked like be could be a pedophile/rapist. We immediately left and the feeling went away. It then returned and less than half a minute later another creepy looking older Guy was leering at us like we were pieces of meat and checking us out. I'm not saying we have super human powers or anything but do you think people can sense when there's a bad person by them?
Girls can you sense if someone dangerous/ a sexual predator is near you?
Would you date someone younger/older/married?

If female intuition was useful, they'd make up the majority of investment bankers.1
IMHO you're frightening yourself with urban legends and myths, old wives tales

The problem with philapenn answer and this 'female intuition" that I agree females see to have, its wrong 100x for every 1x its right.
Girls are meant to be overally cautious because they lack the physical, mental, and emotional strength to defend themselves effectively and they know it. It's a defense mechanism put in place to compensate for their inherent weakness. By the way, I mean no disrespect with what I just said. Just stating a fact.
Same reason women are generally not allowed in combat roles in the military. They don't have the physical and emotional strength to handle combat, hence they're very skiddish.0

Yes, I've gotten bad vibes from girls and guys before.
Guys generally in a bad mood. Dealt with it before by trying to be nice. Which mostly doesn't work because it pisses them off further since I'm trying to be cool with them and they only fume up more like I'm a butt-kisser to them.
So my new soltuion is this: I tell the guy to shut the f*ck up and go away. They don't listen and they get worse. So I repeat myself until they do it, and it works.
Girls giving me bad vibes - usually happens when I'm with a girl friend. We're having a good convo when 2-3 girls come around us. Go figure - they always do this crap. So I either start whispering to the girl friend or I pause the convo and wait for the stalkers to leave. If I don't invite them into the convo, they're just not part of it. Too bad.
Anyway, about you - yes. Your senses are spot on. My friend Sabrina and I were at a bar chatting once when she brought up 2 creepy guys checking her out. She was right, because they did some stupid approach on her a few minutes later to which I told her how to act when they come around. One of them said more stupid sh*t to her, so I dismissed him and he left. Ugly older guy in his 40s with shaggy hair.
So yeah, girls got it bad. If you have the looks, you'll be checked out anytime you're out in public. But that gives her no reason to be worried because the ugly male ducklings should know better.1
