@Copa – I debated changing my profile pic as well haha. As an update, last night he messaged one of my best friends, her husband used to work with him but they weren’t friends and didn’t stay in touch, but he knows I am friends with her. He said he has seen me around and wondered if I was single. I hate that she is getting dragged into this, and told her to just ignore it, but now I feel even more creeped out.
@hfantods – I say go to what you are comfortable attending, say you are only available at X time, and are excited to join them for dinner.
