So I went out with this guy today. We went to a popular eatery, and he paid and bought drinks. Of course, since it is such a popular spot, my friends just happened to show up before either of us got there. We sat inside, they sat outside. At one point I stupidly pointed out oh hey I know those people, but I was worried that it made him uncomfortable even though my friends were there by coincidence. Anyways, after hanging out for a couple hours he suggested since he had to go that I should go so hi to my friends. We hugged goodbye, and I said thanks and to let me know if he'd like to hang out again. I guess I'm just wondering whether this could of made things too awkward for him. I didn't want him to think I was embarrassed, but it's a first date so you don't meet friends! Should I just say, thanks again (even though I already said thank you) and sorry about my friends being there... or just leave it? I'm leaning toward just leaving it and seeing if he texts. I actually liked him, though, so that why I'm taking time to ask!

He will get back to you if he really likes you. There is no need to apologize. He understands that your friends showed up and even if it bothered him, it's not a big deal.
You won't like him in the long run anyway if he is too possessive and tries to keep you from your friends.
If he doesn't contact you and you are really into him, just give him a call at the weekend and ask if he wants to go out. And this time, choose a place that's more calm and less popular so that you two can concentrate on each other with minimum distractions.
If he is comfortable, he might even tell you if it bothered him that your friends showed up on the first date.
If he felt bad then its actually a good sign since he was really interested in you and wanted to spend more time with you.
