Via a birthday party for a male friend, you meet a guy who seems absolutely great — he’s friendly and flirty, too! To top things off, he ends up giving you both his email and phone number before the night is over with the hope that you’ll call him soon.
When a group happy hour comes up soon thereafter, you decide to take the initiative and send him an email. You’re thrilled when he actually attends and seems just as into you as he was before. But within minutes of arriving, a girl shows up asking for him. It doesn’t take a genius to read their body language — it’s obvious they have something going on. Your intentions were clear, so how do you handle this?
