27 Text Messages That Went From 0 To Creepy In An Instant

Every once in awhile I'm alerted to a new "thing" I wish I could un-discover. In this case, it's the subreddit /r/creepyasterisks, which is where people share the most cringe-inducing messages from people trying to force them into role-play. It's denoted by asterisks that bracket the action:

My friend got some weird texts from a guy she knows and decided to fight fire with fire from r/creepyasterisks

Now, plenty of people do this for fun, and that's totally cool! Two people consenting to have text-sex via a detailed messaging system is what phones were invented for. But if you're just popping into someone's DMs so you can write about grabbing their breasts, you are a big creeper and should feel deeply ashamed. 

Especially because sometimes people know who you are in real life, and they want nothing to do with you:

Unless they didn't mean it, of course!

Some people don't even know they know role-players until it's too late.

Though some people try to help role-players escape their own traps.
