Emile: Rocky Was Definitely Not for Me

Emile Kotze dishes on his date with Rocky Dakota and explains why he has trouble closing the deal.

By Emile Kotze
Emile and Rocky's Painfully Awkward Date Were you relieved that Don quit?

EK: I was a bit nervous going on a date with Rocky, since she seems to be a loose cannon, but I wanted to see if she had any real depth and if she was worth any effort. I started to sense that Rocky was not a very sincere girl and hoped I was wrong, because I saw a lot of good qualities in her as well. That's why I wanted to get to know her personally off the boat where I thought she would not just be putting on a show for other people. How do you think the date went?

I'm not the best with closing because, when I get to know the girl for who she is, it just feels wrong...
