Dear TQCers,

What is the polite way to deflect come-ons when you're in a relationship?

Like, lets say you're in the lunch line at work and the counter-man tells you that so-and-so from another department (who was standing in line ahead of you and has complimented you before) has bought your lunch for you, then walks away to another part of the cafeteria.

What should you do?

Are you expected to eat with them? Is it rude not to? Can you just tell them that you've got a boyfriend or should you just thank them and eat your lunch?

I feel like a heel.
