This week’s story comes from a female reader whose experience shows that you don’t even have to go to a speed-dating event to meet a weird, sleazy dude. He could be right down the street.
She was sitting in a park reading a book when a guy sat down on the bench next to her.
She looked over and noticed that he was reading a journal in which was written (and underlined several times), “Ever wonder what it’s like to have sex with a stranger, no strings attached?” He kept the page open toward her for quite some time, until finally she asked him, “Does that ever work?”
He played innocent and claimed it was a total accident: he was just working on song lyrics. Then he asked if she thought it might work.
