So what I thought might possibly be a date definitely is not. The guy who asked me out on Monday just emailed me and made it very clear that it was going to be me and 4 guys. Also, he just wanted to let me know that if I wasn't comfortable with that, he wouldn’t be offended if I didn't want to go. I am so confused. The way I interpret that is, "oh no, now she is going to think this is a date and I DO NOT want to go out with her at all, even if someone paid me."
So much for the self esteem boost.
