Q: When you’re in your local coffeehouse, and a member of the opposite sex sits down, and you start talking about existential philosophy and music, is it appropriate to mention to this person that you’re in a happy, stable, 6+ year relationship?
A: You can never be assured of anybody’s intentions, and it seems somewhat presumptuous to assume that they’re interested in you. I have all of five friends, and I might be overreacting a bit here. Can’t people just be friendly? You tell me.
