I met Keith one Thursday afternoon, while fundraising on a busy street corner for a fairly well-known children's relief organization. He seemed like a genuinely cool person, a first impression which was probably influenced by the fact that he was performing as a juggler. We chatted on and off throughout the day, and I mentioned my boyfriend quite a few times. At the end of the day, we exchanged numbers, and I thought I had made an awesome new friend.
Fast-forward to that Saturday. My boyfriend had broken up with me the morning before, and I was looking for something entertaining to do. Keith called and asked me what I was doing that evening, and I told him what had happened. He was sympathetic, and offered to come meet me downtown to hang out and grab a beer.
After the bar, I told him it was getting late and I should probably head out, as I was staying with some friends and didn't want to keep them up too late. He offered to walk me to my car, and I told him I had to stop by my office to grab some things. I let us into the building, and showed him around, pointing out the political posters we have up, and entertaining him with work stories.
Well, hindsight is 20:20. Having had no intentions of dating any time soon, I had apparently missed all the signs that this guy was interested in more than a casual evening. All of a sudden, he pushed me up against the wall and tried to suck my face off. I went with it for a moment, but the second he tried to take my shirt off, I pushed him away.
“Can I take off your bra?” he asked.
I replied. “No. It's getting late, I should head home.”
As I ushered him out of the building, he kept trying to convince me that I could stay with him if I was worried about waking up my friends, that it would be fun to keep hanging out. Then he asked me what I was doing the next day. I told him that I would probably be busy.
When I arrived at my friends' house, I had a text message from him. “Good night sexxy bitch (affectionately)." I don't think I'll be calling him again any time soon.
