    well I fail to see where a man has done something wrong just because he ask a woman if she would like to come home with him, now if she says no and he keeps on then he has crossed the line, but just buying flowers or taking one out to a meal and popping the question has been going on since the beginning of time, no harm, no foul. somewhere in any relationship one or the other has met this definition.

      Nice try at defending the man but a complete failure.
      He solicited for sex – “paid for” sex guest. Which is illegal as hell.
      He’ll get a slap on the wrist

        Vog is just upset that no matter how he goes about it he can’t succeed.
