Hey everyone, What is the most tasteful way to break the news to someone that you're taken? Specifically, guys, how would you like to receive this news from a woman, and what would be the worst way to find out? Humour welcome :biggrin1:. An old friend of mine from long, long ago just moved to the city and I bumped into him about a week ago. Years ago, I would've been thrilled that he asked me out on a date but right now? Not so much! I'm treating it as meeting up with a friend for drinks and I'm hoping he won't see it as a date. If he does though, I'd love to have something tactful to say that won't cause a totally awkward situation.
