First of the four-part Learning to Serial.
I consider myself a smart, independent woman. I have a job I love and a roommate who gets me. I don't need much else in life. And what I do need takes batteries.
I was tricked into a blind date with my co-worker's nephew. Sure, Cooper was cute. I possibly would've said yes had he asked me out under different circumstances, but he didn't ask me out; his aunt did. I don't date my friend's family. Well, I didn't before tonight.
I know I should take more chances in life, but this wasn't supposed to be one of them. This was a favor. This wasn't a date. And sex never should've been an option.
