Typical story here, picked up an HB7. Number, Kiss, and F-close in one weekend.

However, little did I know there was another guy in the wings (co-worker) that was also running the game on her. Our social circles kind of overlap, and he inevitably heard about us "messing around" and went for the "feelings for you" ploy. There are reason's I call it a ploy, but won't venture into it because in the long run, it doesn't matter.

Anyway, I digress... we had plans to go out. Sent a text the morning/afternoon of,

Me: "Hey pretty lady, we're going to [nightclub] tonight. Don't dress too fancy, it gets complicated. I'll pick you up at 11:17. See you then~!"
Her: "That's pretty specific, lol"
Me: "I have very specific plans. "
Her: "Let's hope so!"

Score! I go about the rest of my day, not worrying too much about the date itself because I'm pretty confident in my face-to-face skills. She's always been pretty receptive to kino escalation, and let's face it. I've already f-closed the HB.

Skip ahead, about an hour, maybe a little more. She cancels with this:

Her: "I don't want to go out tonight. I mixed up about some stuff."
Me: "What's wrong?"
Her: "When you and I started messing around, someone expressed feelings a few days later. I don't know what I want, so I think I should take a sabbatical and figure stuff out."
Me: "That's fine, I already knew about all of that. Well, you know where I am if you decide you can talk."

And immediately went to freeze out status. I'm thinking a week or two, possibly more.

Two questions out of this:
1) What's a good way to handle her if she appears at the tavern we both frequent while I have her frozen out. I know completely shutting her out could be disastrous.
2) Should I go AMOG around the guy? My closest friends are all telling me to go beat his a$$, but PHYSICAL violence is never the answer, and immediately disqualifies you in a womans eyes.
