- "Weird someone out"
“If someone walked up to me smelling like me, it might weird me out.”
Definition: make someone feel uncomfortable
The singer Carrie Underwood must have a low tolerance for weirdness. She says that she wouldn’t want to have her own perfume because it would weird her out. She wouldn’t want other people smelling like her. That’s a pretty unusual thing to feel weirded out by. But maybe Carrie Underwood has a particularly special smell!
Someone looking at you in an odd way, strange noises, or a comment that you don’t know how to interpret, are all examples of things that might weird you out. Something that weirds you out doesn’t have to be scary or upsetting. It just makes you feel a little uncomfortable. It’s something that seems weird, or bizarre, to you.
Weird someone out is like freak someone out, but not as strong. If something really weirds you out, you might also say it freaks you out. But people who are weirded out by lots of little things are a little weird themselves. Don’t be a weirdo!
What kinds of things weird you out?

“I don’t want to weird you out, but I think I just saw a ghost.”
