This Couple's Small City Hall Wedding Ended With a Trolley Ride Around San Francisco

Awkward! He Hit on Her in Front of His Girlfriend!

A couple of weekends ago, I went out to a bar with one of my girlfriends who was visiting from out of town. (Let's call her Linda.) We met up with a group of friends and Linda started chatting and flirting with a guy who was part of our extended group. They hit it off, so Linda gave him her number because he said he would be visiting her city the next weekend.

Later in the evening, Linda was introduced to the guy's girlfriend! Feeling embarrassed, she convinced herself that he was just being friendly. By the next day she had totally forgotten about it . . . until he ended up sending her a suggestive text message when he came into town. This guy was a real keeper: trying to make plans via text when he already had a girlfriend! How does one handle such douchiness?

My sister was married and her husbands,his best friend N started texting her soon as her and her husband got separated. N has a gf, J, of 5 years who is close friends with my sister. J was a bridesmaid at my sisters wedding and he was a groomsmen. N & J are still together and he texts my sister constantly, extremely inappropriate messages. She has repeatedly told N to stop and even tried bringing it up to J. J ignores it and says that would never happen etc etc.

Sticky situations are the worst. Definitely ignore. He doesn't deserve the response, and you definitely don't want the drama.

I wouldn't respond to the guy. If I found out my boyfriend was doing this, I'd dump him.

At my prom, my friend's date was hitting on me, which wouldn't have been so bad except he didn't even sit next to my friend (his date) in the limo. The thing that I'm learning as I get older is that high school never ends.

I ran in to one of these creeps a few weeks ago. My room mate her bf and their friends came with me to the gay bar dwn the street. One of their friends handsome Cuban guy who has a gf of five yrs comes up to me and says "so which one of these girls is straight" I said you have a girlfriend and his response was "so". I lost all respect right there. I never understood cheating because IMO if I were tempted to cheat that would mean I'm not happy with what I have. So why am I cheating on what I'm not happy with? Why not just end it and pursue something I am happy with at least that way I can maintain my self respect and although the partner that I parted from may not be happy about it I didn't disrespect them either.

No response. It's even better than a no.

Truthfully, I would tell him I met his girlfriend, and I would feel uncomfortable meeting with him. That would be the end of that, and I would forget about him.

I agree with the previews comments, ignore the bastard.

Jerk somehow doesn't seem a sufficiently strong adjective for this guy. Ignore the asshole - don't even reply. Like an email address solely used for dating, I'd say it's a good idea for many women to have a spare phone (pre-pay?). Don't give out your real full time (private?) number until you know you really do want the other person to have it.

Honestly, I wouldn't even dignify it with a response.

Uggg! Some guys are so horrible! Just ignoring him and never talking to him again is probably the best thing to do, or you could send a txt mentioning his gf and then telling him to leave you alone.
