There is a man who asked out a friend of mine.  I really do not know this guy at all but he knows the other friends in our group better.  We were all at a July 4th party and he seemed nice enough--he didn't drink too much or act obnoxious.  He's middle aged and has kids.  So the woman who was asked out asked the other friends of his what is he like--they both said oh you should date him, he is a very nice guy.  But then one of them said--you have to be careful because he has visited prostitutes in the past.  Now i know that everyone should be careful about STDs and anyone could have one, even a nice person.  Any guy could have slept around with a lot of people.  So it's not even so much the fear of STDs that could get to me, it's just kind of the gross factor, although in one way I don't really blame the guy.  Everybody gets lonely and this guy is not that attractive so maybe it's hard for him to get dates and he was just lonely or needing sex.  Oh and of course the woman he asks out is the most beautiful woman who looks like a model--very out of his league.
