Thanks! The moment I cancelled the date, I felt a huge wave of relief. Definitely the right thing to do. I told him how saying those things made me feel like he was picking out a piece of cake to consume, rather than planning mutually enjoyable time together, but he never acknowledged that he’d done anything untoward. He just said, “If you no longer feel comfortable, I guess there’s nothing I can do about that.” Uh, yeah…. you can treat the other person like a sex partner, and not like a piece of cake or a porn prop! How ‘bout that?
