I'll try and make this as easiest as possible. I met a girl who is a bartender at my favorite bar and we've been texting back and forth lately. It's usually short flirty messages nothing major. I went to go see here tonight while she was working and a buddy of mine that I met at the bar comes in. He starts talking about how he is taking this girl (same one im talking to) out on a date Thursday night blah blah blah. I've never been in this situation before. I got out of a serious two year relationship a while ago and this is the first girl I've talked to since being single. Do I just go ahead and ask her out as well? I don't really want to back down just because he asked her out first...just not fond of the idea of competing for the same girl.
