Sweet: A handwritten letter telling you he has a crush on you.
Creepy: A handwritten letter on your doorstep from the guy who followed you home from the grocery store. (See above.)

Sweet: Flowers at work.
Creepy: Flowers at work when you haven’t told him where you work.

Sweet: Surprise dinner reservations.
Creepy: Surprise dinner reservations where he introduces you to his entire family.

Sweet: A mix CD of songs he thought you’d like.
Creepy: A mix CD of 20 songs he wrote about you.
