"While on an unremarkable first date, the guy asked if I minded if he smoked and I said no. We were walking in a quiet park after dinner. He sits down on a bench and busts out meth, asking me if I want some. After realizing he intend to smoke meth, not cigarettes or weed, I said it was time for me to go home. He seemed surprised and then said, “it’s because of the meth, isn’t it?"
