Awkward! A Married Man Asked Me Out on a Date

I've heard variations on this one — the attached guy who gets your phone number and then says he just wants to hang out, as he lets slip he has a girlfriend. The guy who shamelessly flirts while his girlfriend's back is turned. And then there was my case — the married guy who acted single as hell before eventually asking me out for brunch. (Brunch?!)

I had met him at a cocktail party for media people. He was funny, cute, and flirting, so I assumed — single. We exchanged cards, emailed a few times, and then I received an invitation for Sunday brunch. The whole time I had an odd question running through my head: is this a date? (Beware that question, especially if you are on a date. It's your gut telling you something is wrong.)

After we chitchatted, he asked if I wanted to take a walk. It was then that he casually mentioned his wife! (Where was she, I was wondering — would she approve?) I felt creeped out by the whole affair and excused myself to do my laundry. Have you ever been asked out by a man you found out later was attached? How did you react?
