Date Cleanser

I recently had a well-meaning neighbor hook me up with a guy. Unlike the past 5 hook ups people attempted, this dude actually made contact. Kudos dude, kudos. But our brief conversation quickly revealed an ulterior motive by the well-meaning neighbor.

I try to live as decently as I can, but like the poorly conceived medieval sin eaters, goodliness is not transferable nor is it highly contagious. So I found myself feeling very ill used as a purge-by-proximity for a guy who wanted no such thing. And he was well aware of my standards so it just got awkward because we both knew we had been paired for no other reason than to “save his soul”. Word of advice, don’t use blind dates to try and save wayward people. It is demeaning for both parties.
