Welcome to Awkward City - Population 3

What would you do?

Girl A: Takes Male Interest 1 to a location where they both encounter Girl B who is a dear friend of Girl A
Male Interest 1: Finds Girl B's phone number a week later and calls to ask her out
Girl B: Asks Male Interest if he is dating Girl A
Male Interest 1: Says not dating Girl A, would love to take out Girl B
Girl B: Calls Girl A to verify aforementioned information and to see if it is ok if Girl B and Male Interest 1 go out. Girl A wasn't able to respond until four days later and by that time Girl B had already accepted Male Interest 1's invitation because he had attempted thrice and she assumed all was well
Girl A: Hurting, not aware that Male Interest 1 has deemed her "just a friend"
Girl B: Digging Male Interest 2, but recognizes the need to date around and Male Interest 2 is occupied during the requested time of Male Interest 1 BUT she can't betray Girl A cause she loves Girl A more than Male Interest 1 or 2 BUT she can't put all her eggs in Male Interest 2's basket cause she isn't sure if he is offering his basket yet or not and Male Interest 1 is a catch

Girl B: Stuck between a rock and a hard place - does she cancel date with Male Interest 1 or not?

Talk about awkward! I say GB should NOT cancel the date with MI1 because after all a date is just a date. While GA's feeling have already been hurt by MI1's less serious position on their relationship, that's no reason for everyone's lives to be sad, right? And after all, a date is just a date. As for MI2, if he likes it he should have put a ring on it (so to speak), am I right, single ladies? :)

Hmmmm... GB should talk to GA again about the level of commitment/relationship development she had with MI1, then decide whether or not he was being honest with GA. If honest, take the date, if not, no question to refuse. I like dating. :)

All I can say is I get way frustrated when a girl won't date be because one of her friends has already "marked her territory." If I were MI1, being refused a date by GB would not help me become more interested in GA. I'd already have made up my mind.

However, I'm not sure how dramatic these things can get between two girls. My hunch would say that the worst of it is over. GA has been hurt by the fact that MI1 is more interested in GB than herself. GA is probably jealous, and how much worse could it get? I say take the date that you accepted before you heard back from GA (after all, she did wait a few days before responding to you, and you did give her plenty of opportunity to speak up).

First of all, population 4...poor MI2 is mixed up in all this too! Keep the date, damage control after you find out of there is a need, otherwise...

Girl B tells Girl A that Male #1 is just a filler in case for #2 who is the real interest. If I were Girl #2, I'd just be honest about the situation. If I really liked #2, I wouldn't be much fun for #1 anyway...
