If you are being bothered by someone, regardless of how creepy, there are a number of ways you can deal with it. If a guy you find creepy is pestering you, dealing with it quickly will end the problem before it becomes too serious. A guy who seems mildly creepy can soon become far worse, and you will have a much more troubling problem on your hands. Getting rid of the guy will keep you safe.

Tell the guy to his face that you don't want to see him again. Be polite and respectful, but firm. Telling him to his face will avoid mixed messages. Do not tell him that you will think about it, or that maybe at a later date you can get together.
Speak to someone else. If a guy is bothering you, there is power in numbers. Make your point clear by joining a conversation with a large group, or just talking to someone else. Don't do it to make him jealous, but to make it clear you don't want to speak to him. Don't make eye contact with the creepy guy.
Tell someone if he is starting to become a problem. Telling your friends, family and colleagues will help you to get advice and perspective on the problem. If it is someone at work, speak to your boss or human resources, who may be able to deal with the problem.
Do not respond to any messages. If a creepy guy is becoming a stalker, he will enjoy the power to alter your emotions. Responding to any messages will validate this, and will spur him on. A creepy guy may lose interest after a while.
Speak to the police. The police will be able to advise you on the best course of action in your specific case. Avoid being alone at night, and keep your family and friends updated with your location. If you live alone, ask a friend to stay with you at night.
