Perhaps I'm just that kinda person but one may have chosen to say that he though she really needs to get off and that it won't mean that much to him either, so sure, they can do it ;-).
You see, there is a certain amount of pain threshold that a person can bear. Once you overflow it, it overlaps and you just don't feel it any more.
There's not much to lose (except for pain), really, when taking an offer like this, once you look at it that way.
And there's enough to win - she might really like it and therefore finally "find some emotion" for you ;-).
But speaking of my today - it was not a very good day since I blew 2 tires in a row and hitch-hiked to get a second spare from a garage. Not much fun.
