I just want to start this post by saying that I am writing this post without permission of any parties involved...but it is too good to wait to get permission and i'm not making money on this blog and it is not of enough importance AND legally not a viable case for slander...so here I go.
My friend named Peter (not his name, but it plays into the story) met this girl in class. Cute. Always sat on his left side (an important tidbit). He thought nothing of it.
He asked this girl out. They went out. It was winter. She wore a coat. All things to this point seem normal.
Now here we go.
On the date at his apartment, they sat (again, her at his left) at his computer watching some youtube stuff to have a reason to sit close, touch knees and kill some time (ya know the routine...). As they sat, he couldn't help but notice that she was incredibly proficient at typing with one hand while the other stayed in her coat pocket.
Then, as they were making sandwiches she still only used her right hand. He started to laugh.
"Why do you only use one hand??" he blurted with a chuckle.
...awkward silence. The chuckle stopped.
"Because," she replied, "it's the only one I have."
ONE ARMED! FOILED!
Now there is nothing awkward about having one arm, but being friends with a girl for a few weeks and not noticing until 1/2 way through the date...now that can be awkward.
Needless to say, they did not go out again(...but did remain friends).
This just goes to show you though, that there is at least ONE situation where getting a side hug at the end of a date doesn't necessarily mean you're out of luck...unless you are Peter.
