I watched a friend flirt with my new date, grab his hand and slip him her business card on the sly. Should I confront her?

Q. I was out the other night with a new date and ran into a couple of girlfriends who are totally untrustworthy and very aggressive. Both of them flirted and gushed over the guy like he was Denzel and I saw one, when she thought I wasn’t looking, grab his hand and slip him a card, which he put in his pocket. I thought she disrespected me and our friendship. I’m furious at her and I want to confront her, but all my friends say I’m over-reacting. What do you say?
A. Get some new friends and talk to your date only. Ask him about the card passing and measure his jerk status by his response. If he denies receiving the card…leave him to your friends.
Q. I recently accepted an engagement ring from a man and I’m truly in love with his best friend. The best friend and I “slipped up” once and slept together. But since then, he won’t even look at me. I’m perplexed. I want to be married, and I’m afraid to blow this opportunity to be with a good man who is financially stable. But I don’t love him, and all my friends are advising me to marry now and fall in love later. What do you say?
A. I say you should let that nice guy off the hook and return his engagement ring. With marriage, it’s usually the other way around. You fall in love first and then get married.
