Creepers are creatures - specifically human beings, but could possibly be other species of animals (to a much lesser degree) - that are notorious for creeping. What does “creeping” entail, and how do you spot a creeper? Creepers display a bizarre, and sometimes compulsive, attraction towards a person. Creeping is the verb that describes what a creeper undertakes.
1. Persistence to get involved in your life somehow: Even if all you say to them is “Hi,” this brings satisfaction to them. But no, creepers want more. They will try their darndest to strike up a conversation with you, even if it is severely lacking in interest on your behalf. They will follow you every which way you go. They will talk about you with your friends, asking them questions about you and trying to reap information about you, even if they were people that they usually wouldn’t even think of conversing with because they were just so creepy. They will take the most miniscule joke that you make, latch onto it, and deem it as something “special” between the two of you. They will find your Facebook, Myspace, or other social networking profile that you may have and creep you on that. The worst, though, is when they find out your phone number or screen name, and they excessively instant message you, text you, or call you. Creepers, as we call them, also give a name to their “creepee,” and will constantly refer to them as that.
2. The “Sorry, I’m not interested” Shpeel: Again, creepers are beings of a very persistent nature. Once you get annoyed of their characteristics that you once found as friendly gestures, they need to be told that they need to leave you alone. You tell them “Sorry, I don’t like you” once and they won’t listen. They’ll continue with their addiction to you. The second time, it becomes “In all seriousness, I do not like you.” You would think that they would actually listen to you at this point, but no. Creepers might be stung by an explanation such as “I do not like you. I never did like you. I never will like you.” Such a phrase may, just may get through to them. But…
3. The Aftermath: After telling the creeper that you don’t like them, they will do either one of two things. They will either heed that innuendo, leave you alone, and find someone else to creep. Or they will lessen the creeping towards you, but still have same dignity left in them after you have shamed them to sneak a “Hello” into your day.
Albeit the creeper may appear to be leaving you alone, or for some reason, they continue to try and converse with you, DO NOT GIVE INTO THEIR PLOY TO “REMAIN FRIENDS.” You want to break off all contact with the creeper as soon as possible. Think of it as a bandage: you don’t want the adhesive to hurt when you’re taking it off, so just rip it off as fast as you can. It may hurt the creeper’s feelings, but it’s better than having a creeper creep around you to begin with.

This definition is only directed towards young men, it is not meant to be offensive to girls: "creeper" is a term typically used by young women, usually young women who like to party, which means "I am afraid of you because you are by yourself", or, "I am afraid of you because you are not socializing." I've noticed that women tend to label men creepers if they have dark features, such as thick eyebrows or a distinctively superior look. Something else I've noticed is that older, more mature, and usually brunette women are actually ATTRACTED to these types of men. Think about it, young men who have dark features, are independent, and mysterious, seriously, I guarantee you will win the love of a beautiful women, and dont even worry about being labeled a creeper, you will learn later that it's a compliment.
Being a creeper may be when you're at a party where you feel like you don't fit in with the girls there, and not wanting to talk to them so you just chill by yourself or with your guy friends.

A guy who is usually somewhat introverted who watches and listens to the world around him more than he talks. (In some cultures, these traits are considered admirable.) When mean-spirited girls (or douchebag dudes) treat him as if NOT being an aggressive loud-mouthed idiot is somehow bad and there is something wrong with him, he typically shuts down more. If, however, he makes an attempt to mimic their behavior in order to fit in and to get the heat off of him, they still withhold their acceptance and give him shit. He can't win. North Americans get real cunty towards guys with any level of intelligence or sensitivity. This dude would rather be writing a book or playing music or some other creative pursuit in arts or science than puffing up his chest and talking shit, therefore he will have great difficulty in all social activities, especially hooking up with girls. He's into girls but his fear of rejection is high from repeated abuse by them. He gets spell-bound by their beauty but finds it absolutely impossible to small-talk. If he could, he would, but he just can't do it. He doesn't know what to say or how to say it since he has be ridiculed too many times in the past. If he is the one in a million who gets some real level of fame for his creativity, these same people will kiss his ass in person and then continue to talk shit on him behind his back. As a result he tends to be a loner or keeps a very small group of friends that he can trust.
"That guy is looking at you."
What a creeper."

Something that everyone is at some point.

The state of being someone acting (often unintentionally) creepy, perverse, or weird, in a manner that is quite hysterical.
Amanda: So I was walking by Steven's room last night and he must not have realized how loud his music was. I could hear "Circus" coming through the door.

Connie: Oh, Amanda, you can be such a creeper.

Luke: Dude, what the hell? Why are there so many pics of me on facebook. I can't even see myself in most of them.

Dan: Nah, dude, there you are, being a creeper.

Luke: Shit, I look like that? Damn, why didn't Miranda just take a pic somewhere else? I'm in like 50 of these.

Dan: At least there'll be a good media photo for when you get arrested for stalking.

Luke: Ass.

Edward Cullen
Edward Cullen likes to stare at Bella sleep before and after they were in a relationship, thus he is a creeper.

Edward Cullen has a serious creeper problem because he had a threatening suicide issue and that is a mental condition.

Edward Cullen broke Bella's car and having his sister kidnap her is a complete creeper status.

Being emotionally abusive, a stalker, and a criminal is "romantic" and completely not creepy *rolls eyes*

A grossly misused term assigned to any one male who pays too much attention to a specific female. Every girl you meet will tell you she has a creeper (why? Usually for a feeling of self-importance; if a girl doesn't have a 'creeper' who's completely obsessed with her then she might be seen by her fellow humans as a lesser being with no sexual appeal). The term is generally misused. You can be sure that the majority of creepers you hear about from your female friends are simply normal guys who may try to flirt with said female while she finds him unattractive or repulsive. The minority of creepers that you hear about may actually be desired by the female while she is simply too immature or afraid to admit her feelings for him thus dismissing him in such a fashion. Sometimes you literally need only comment on one of her photos on facebook for her to label you as a creeper for eternity.
"Oh em gee, Jared totally made eye-contact with me yesterday at that party. He's such a creeper!"

"Ugh, don't you just hate it when creepers are nice to you? Like the only reason they ask how your day has been is 'cause they want to have sex with you."

"Gill, I have like... Seven creepers right now, no joke. I guess I'm just super irresistible and hawt."

A horrible label thrown around on a whim usually by teenaged or young adult females used to describe every quiet guy with whom they have any sort general or social interaction.
*Guy holds open a door for Jessica and Ashley to go into Chipotle*

Jessica: Thanks

Ahsley: Thank you

Guy: You're welcome (gives a slight smile and nods)

*Seconds later*

Ashley: (whispers) Wow what a creeper..
