There is a mutual friend who introduced us and i got her number from her.
Before the date this girl wants to invite our mutual friend and cites that she hasn;'t seen her in a while and some other bs for a reason.
So Instead of saying "No i want it to be just us" and giving her all the power, I did the takeaway and said "its cool you guys hang out, i have some other friends i wouldn't mind seeing who are in town, theres always next week"
aka i'm calling her bluff, the takeaway and can try again next week or see what happens, etc etc, thoughts?
she ended up replying saying "okie dokie, you better invite me to your party next week" or some shit, but ill ignore that and just try for another date in like 5 days
