First dates can and often are awkward. I asked this girl out, she was fat and of low self esteem so I knew she'd say yes. Watching her devour course after course while telling me how little confidence she has was strangely a turn on. Then she tells me she hadn't been on a date for two years because the last date she'd had, led to her being a victim of date rape. Worse still when it went to court the judge let him off because he felt the date rapist had really just been doing a public service. Needless to say I didn't let her order pudding and I made her walk home.
