When is it hot vs creepy?

A woman I work with said something both insightful and funny.

To paraphrase her, she said something to the effect, “if the person is attractive, it’s not creepy.”

Her example was getting flowers at work.

The image crystallized in our minds. We laughed.

This could be misconstrued as a jab at people who are not attractive, but there was an underlying truth to the point.

If a stranger, or someone you don’t know well, makes an advance into your world, you size it up.

Perhaps unfairly, attractive people can get away with things that other people can’t without inducing a sense of creepiness.
