Can You Call "Dibs" on a Guy?

Group Therapy: Can You Call "Dibs" on a Guy?

This question comes from Group Therapy in our TrèsSugar Community. Feel free to add your advice in the comments!

My friend and I have joined a softball league together, not only to be active and have fun, but to make friends and meet people. We are both single, though she has been single for a lot longer than I have. There is this one guy that it turns out we are both attracted to, and when we first saw him she initially called “dibs” (well, not literally, it was more like “ooh he’s cute!” in a hushed whisper and I agreed).

I’m not saying that either of us has a chance, but what would happen in a situation such as this if the guy turned out to be interested in me, and not her? Would I have to tell him "thanks, but no thanks" just because she expressed her interest in him first, even though I’m interested too?

Have a dilemma of your own? Post it, anonymously, to Group Therapy for advice, and check out what else is happening in the TrèsSugar Community.
