So. I was coming back from a date that went okay. Not great but okay. She told me at the beginning that she had to be up to teach a literacy class. The date went okay, and my body language was confident and open. I walked her back to her apartment she said she wanted to see me again. I told her to call me. On my way home I got a txt from her. So that went well.

I stopped off at a bar close to my place on the way home for another drink and after sitting at the bar for ten minutes I picked my mark. She was standing close to me for about five minutes and I took that as an ioi. She was with two female friends, and I turned and asked them if they could choose a superpower, flight or invisibility what would they choose. This got the target talking, and she touched my arm.

She mentioned traveling to thailand so I went with it and talked to her about that for a bit. I escalated Kino and touched her arm & the small of the back and got her laughing. After talking for about five minutes I got her name and she asked for mine.

Right after that a dude came up and introduced himself. I started to talk to him to demonstarte value and that I could hang with her friends. He pulled me aside and told me the girl I was talking to was attached and not to waste my time.

She had seemed to be having a good time, and I was told her "boyfriend" was drunk but hadn't noticed anything.

Was I cockblocked or was I running bad game?

Either way, how do I deal with an intervening dude? I think she was into me.
