How not to lead a girl on (last post of the night)

My friend and i work at the theater here and we get tickets sometimes. We have 7 tickets to a circus de olay kinda show (different company).

We had 6 people coming, but it looks like they are all going home, leaving us with 5 tickets. There is a girl that i like, friendly ya know, but recently i've been getting the vibe that she's into me a little more then that, as soon as she found out about my girlfriend and i she's much more chatty and always looking for an excuse to hang out. Right...anyways.

I want to invite her to this show but i don't want her to think anything i'm not thinking, and i don't want to be a ****** bag and say something stupid to that effect.


What the hell is a friendly guy like myself suppose to do?

Just take it one step at a time and try to read the signals and go where you feel. The same advice applies to most of life.

They are like movie remakes....never as good as the original.

Though I am quite flattered of the hero worship you both show me.

Tom's answer was weasel perfect. It's just friends, but, heh heh, see where it leads.

Take the rebound sympathy tap if she offers, Timmy, and it will nip your emo in the bud. Don't assume she wants anything more than to add a notch to her own booty count. And she's probably sick of your whining and knows the cure. "Think what you're not thinking" for a change.

But be a gentleman. Good luck.

Walk up to her, and without saying a word, place a ticket in her hand (or on her desk, if that's how it works out). The catch: There's a condom packet under the ticket! Gasp! How'd that get there? Oh, how embarrassing!

PS: Don't do this.

You still have a gf? If so why are you asking out another gal before you completely resolve that relationship? <curious and, albeit not-been-here-for-a-while Vega>

Unless this is true philanthrophy on behalf of a gal who just loves the circus....

Huh? Weasel perfect? I really did mean for him not to lead her on. Be straight up and go the friend route for now. Given how he feels, jumping into a commitment would be rash at best. Seeing where it leads is just keeping an open mind, perhaps it'll change in relationship form after he gets his head on straight
