Group Therapy: How to Get Out of Dipping Your Pen in Company Ink

So, I know you're not supposed to "dip your pen in company ink" . . . however, I have been going out on various dates with a co-worker who works in a different department. But I do see him several times a day.

He's a little younger than me, I'm 26 and he is 23. He's very negative . . . if the conversation gets awkward he tells me that I'm a bad date and that he hates me. On one of our dates, we went to the mall and I missed a step on the stairs and so he tried to catch me, but tried to get a cheap feel on my breast while doing so. He compares me to other women he has been with, tells me I'm so "good for him" and keeps asking me if I'm a stalker . . . about five times a day, which includes texts and phone calls. We have only kissed, no make-out sessions and no sex, but he keeps suggesting dates and for us to pull over the car. He says that he has been with so many whores, so it's refreshing to hold out, but then again he is very touchy when we do kiss, and I'm beginning to feel super awkward about his physical advances.

What was the icing on the cake was last night, towards dinner when we were making fun of the terrible things we used to do when we were younger. So I told him that I went through a piercing phase and pierced my lip, eyebrow, and nose when I was 19 and that I used to go to all these clubs and dance in cages. I'm obviously older now, work in a professional place, and yes I go out with the girls, but I don't carry the same appearance (I'm a bit conservative now). He goes on to tell me that he wished we met back then because I was his type . . . and now I'm not.

There's been too many turn offs, and he was serious when he said and did all of the above. How do I end things without making it awkward at the office?
