"I dated this guy on and off, but we never got serious because he lived in a different city. About a year ago he got a girlfriend but we remained 'friends.' However, he'll still make advances or flirt on occasion over email.
When I put my foot down and told him to cut it out because he has a girlfriend, he responded with 'I have an open relationship with my my girl.' I told him 'No thanks,' but I'm about to see him this weekend at a mutual friend's birthday. It's going to be awkward because I haven't bumped into him since he told me about his alleged relationship status. And to top it off, he asked if he could 'crash' at my place! I denied his request."
