Playing second fiddle works

Dear Advice Diva:

I am 22 and live in Miami. I have a friend who is gay and extremely handsome and charming. The problem: Living in such an open-minded city, you often find that some people ''go both ways.'' Unfortunately, that seems to work against me. Often, when we go out and I meet a man that interests me, my friend will begin chatting them up. By the end of the night, the guy who I was expecting to ask for my number asks for his instead! What should I do?
