I am really curious about what others would do in this situation. I'd appreciate your feedback.
My dear friend Amy told me about this guy she's crazy about. She said he seemed interested but hasn't asked her out... yet.
Well, Amy & I were at a dinner party & He showed up. Long story short: despite my efforts to politely avoid him, he seemed to always be sparking up a conversation with me. He wasn't rude about it, but he wasn't shy about letting me know he wanted to get to know me. I tried not to laugh at his jokes & avoided eye contact... it wasn't easy. Amy wasn't exaggerating when she said he's hot as hell, witty, & congenial, etc. He is no dummy either so he saw right through me.
Amy commented to me, “Don't be an idiot. Stop running away from him.” But I knew she was bummed. So, later when he asked me out, I got his number & said I'd call him. :/
Amy talked to him at the party & he told her he thinks she's really cool but he has been wanting to meet someone like me for a long time. She told me I should go out with him. uh...
If you were the guy would you have gone about this a different way?
What would you do if you were me?
Poll: Date or No Date?
Well, I called him & said I'm afraid of jeopardizing my friendship with Amy. He asked me to call him as soon as I feel better so we can go out... LOL

i'll second what doe said below, dateing a friend's crush is usually bad news... I'd send him a text saying look, er really nice, but I can't go anywhere with this, she was interested in you first and that puts you out-of-bounds (feel free to paraphrase)1
