Picked Up by Friend

A few years ago, a coworker asked me out to a movie on the weekend. I was busy and said no. Later he asked me out to dinner but I was busy then too. He frequently left little presents for me; on more than one occasion, he left a rubber glove blown up like a balloon and clamped with a face drawn on it. I never knew he was trying to pick me up, I was so dumb. I ran into him today and he said he had always wanted to have sex with me. I told him I had had no clue then, but today I went back to his place with him. I had never had sex with a man, but it was great. Before I left, he took my phone and put a calendar appointment in it for next week. I guess I'm his now.
