Sorry, but there’s the saying, “Never mix business with pleasure” for a reason. Pursue it with your friend if you’d like, but this sort of situation is known to happen.

I would not even contact him… unless he initiates the conversation, where you can explain then, that you got someone else,and mention your displeasure then, there’s no use in telling him anything at this point…

@tnbellebee:  Hm, that’s a tough one.  I think, depending on my mood, I might shoot him an email letting him know that you’re working with someone else but that you are kind of bummed because you really like the work that he does.  Maybe, if it’s your style, you could frame it in that way?  You might be able to send the message in a sort of complimentary way, and perhaps you could say something like, “I wish you had let us know via email or phone so that we could have finalized our plans sooner,” or something like that. 

In situations like these I figure I am giving people constructive feedback, and if they are good at what they do, they should value that.  Hopefully this person would understand if not appreciate your honest feedback.  Of course, it’s not a perfect world!  Good luck!
