This guy I know who is a lawyer—we're friends—asked me to be his date to his work Xmas party. I don't want to date him, but I thought it might be a good place to meet someone. Thoughts?
I can see the appeal of going to a party with a bunch of successful attorneys. Good fishing pool! However, it can be awkward to go as this fella's date to his company holiday party if you're not interested in him. First, it may send the wrong message to him. He may think you are interested in him. And, those who see you together definitely will assume that. You will ge more attention if you go to events alone or with a girlfriend. Make sure your friend is not single or likes a different type of guy than you, or you may end up competing for the attention of the same great catch and that could put a strain on your friendship.
