Do this exercise with me- Imagine an everyday situation. Place yourself at the gym, grocery store, at work, or anywhere normal. A man starts chatting you up, and even though he doesn’t look weird somehow the communication feels a little, um, offish.
*The implied lesson there is that bad guys don’t really have a “look” until afterward when we look back and say, ‘yeah, he looks a little creepy’.
So next time you’re in an unsettling situation, rather than eyeballing it, use this checklist .
If he exhibiting any of these known pre-attack behaviors, you just might have another reason to scram. Go ahead and be rude about it too…
