The Date that Wouldn't Leave
I met this guy that I thought was really nice and decided to go out on a date with him. We went to dinner, and then went back to my place to talk a while. Throughout the whole conversation, he decided that he was my soul mate and that we should be together for the rest of our lives. I told him that we needed to take it slow so that we could really get to know one another and see whether we really were soul mates. He couldn't accept that; he wanted an answer now. So, as time went on, which was about 3:30 in the morning, I told him it was time for him to go. He first made an ugly face about having to leave, and then asked if he could just lie down for about hour then he would leave. I told him I didn't think that would be a good idea. He begged for about half an hour, and then started taking his shoes off. I freaked out, and then went totally off. When I got him to the door, he said that he did not know I was serious. I asked him if this would help and closed the door.
