i never thought i'd post one of these... but here i go. how do you... not ask a girl out? this may seem strange to a lot of you, and it's definitely quite strange for me. a general summary of the situation: there's 2 girls that are interested in me. this is pretty odd already, as i normally have enough trouble getting a date as it is, and the number of romantic interests usually number less, not more, than 1. i only met the second girl after i asked the first out to a date. due to the midterm season, we decided to postpone it. when i met the second girl i may have been a bit too... gentlemanly, let's just say. we got to know each other pretty well, but now i'm pretty sure she's expecting me to ask her out. whoops. now don't get me wrong, she's a fabulous gal. i would be dating her at the drop of a hat if it weren't for the fact that there's somebody else... so, how to resolve this situation? i don't want to lie to her and say i already have a girlfriend, because i don't. i also want to avoid the awkward situation of saying "sorry, i can't go out with you" out of the blue. she's pretty meek and not the type to ask me, i think, so i can't turn her down there. hm.
