Voice Change

I knew Michelle for about ten years before I dated her. We lived in the same neighborhood and saw each other often. She always seemed nice and outgoing. When we finally went out on a date, she began to talk in a baby-like voice. I asked her why she was doing that and she told me it was sexy. I told her I didn't agree and I would prefer to just have her speak like she had always done. She kept up the baby voice despite my asking her to stop several times. I told her it wasn't sexy, it was just odd. I never asked her out again because I just didn't want to deal with the voice change.
