Good to know. I wasn't upset or anything, just felt out of my element and unsure of what was going on. I guess we should all be thankful there's a place we can flirt and be flirted with without anyone wagging fingers! LOL

That sucks. I would hope that anyone else I meet going forward would be open to "just" friendship as well -- because, while I would like to get laid, that's not why I went to the party! I mean, I need friends too.
