Beware--the Lazy Dater...

I met the lazy dater six months ago at a friend's party. I distinctly got a vibe that he was interested, but I also got a vibe that his interest was for all the wrong reasons. Nevertheless, fast forward six months after some playful Facebook banter, he somehow invited himself over to my house with a couple of six packs to give me some vacation tips.
