Man on date prolonging goodbye in the hope of a snog

A MAN was hoping he might get a kiss if he prolonged parting company after a date, although the moment had definitely passed.

Office worker Tom Logan had failed to kiss Nikki Hollis after a drink in the pub, and hoped the chance might somehow come back if he took ages saying goodbye.

Logan said: “I’m sure there was a possibility of a kiss earlier but I missed it, I think. So I walked her to the station in the hope of rekindling the possibility of romance.

“To be honest I could feel my chances slipping away because in my panic I kept saying boring stuff like ‘What time d’you have to get up for work?’ and asking what the trains were like in this area.

“Finally she said ‘Sorry, I’ve got to go or I’ll miss my train’. Maybe next time I’ll just say ‘D’you want a snog?’. I’m sure that’s got to be better than telling her about my parents’ dead cat.”

Hollis said: “I’d considered kissing Tom but I’m not sure I want to go out with someone with such an obsessive interest in office hours and regional train services.”
