Scott12 Posted May 19, 2010 Share Posted May 19, 2010 Okay, hope I'm not stepping on any toes here, but I'm just looking for some advice on how to handle a situation like this in the future, and to make sure I handled this situation okay. Last night at my apartments while I'm outside smoking this guy comes up to me and asks me for directions to someone else's apartment in the complex. I say I don't know this person because I'm new to the complex, etc. We start chatting for a bit and he informs me that he met this guy the other night and they were supposed to hook up that night and that he was bummed because he had lost the apartment number, etc. He then says the guy looks quite a bit like me (I swear I must resemble everyone on earth because I get this all the time) and then starts saying "but you're not into that, are you?" I chuckled and said no, and he asked if I was sure. I said, "Yes, plus I don't think my fiancee would appreciate it very much". He replied by saying that she wouldn't have to know because he certainly wouldn't go tell her, etc. Eventually we parted and went our separate ways. My problem is that toward the end I got the vibe from him that he was thinking I was put off or upset because he had been hitting on me. On the contrary I was strangely flattered, perhaps because of the novelty. So my questions are: did I handle the rejection okay and is there any advice for handling it better in the future?
