You've chosen one of those free sites that's just a bare half-step up from the Craigslist
Two days later he invites you over to his place "for dinner" you show up, he asks you if you'd like water. You say sure, and he hands you a full glass he has been keeping, fully prepared, in the fridge before your arrival.
Am I the only one who heard a loud record scratch at the idea of drinking an open, pre-made drink proffered from a guy you don't really know on the first visit to his house?
Because while my friend was like "I really thought it was sweet that he had a drink prepared for me and everything" I was all "HELLO ROHYPNOL. YOU IN DANGER, GIRL!"

It was ages ago at a women-only benefit for Out Youth, and I thought "Hey, I can let my guard down. Untainted drinks and sisterhood for everyone!"
Thirty minutes and half a martini later I knew something was up and I spent the next four hours locked in a bathroom stall reciting the first 36 elements of the periodic table in an effort to stay alert (Krypton, atomic number 36, was as far as I got before my chicken pox cleared up.)
I don't know, gang. Am I being the lady who x-rays Halloween candy for razors and HIV needles? Because I'm not going to lie: I err on the side of overprotective with this friend. And yet I don't think "hey, maybe accepting pre-made beverages from dudes you don't know is a terrible idea" is going too far.
Would you take the drink? What advice would you give a late blooming dater trying to find her place in the wild world of internet dating?
