You may recall that last week my hair was dealt a crushing blow when the girl cutting it decided to ask me out for a drink, therefore ensuring I could never see her again due to the inevitable awkwardness.

It's natural to be attracted to these manly, heroic figures with their long hoses and vigorous pumping technique. However, they have a job to do. If you interrupt a fireman while he's working, someone's house could burn down and a cat may perish.
It's said that these cart-driving dairy providers are prolific lovers, and maybe that's true, but it can't be a good idea to get involved with one.

Several of the world's kindest and most handsome guys already have wives, which means you should not ask them out even if you think they're awesome. The main reason is that they will probably say no.

It is tempting to ask out Cliff Richard because he seems nice and he's not officially in a relationship with anyone at the moment. But you shouldn't do it. For one, he's too old for you. Two, you might not be his type. And three, Sue Barker would stab you with a fork.
You should not ask out the man driving the coach, however hunky he is, because it will divert his attention from the road and he could crash, leaving many dead. The same applies for bus drivers, pilots and men on bicycles.
