Preflop, I'm going to make a standard raise (2.2BB+1BB for each limper).

On the flop, I'm going to make a standard c-bet of 1/2 pot. When the opp min-raises me, I need a read on the opp (none provided... these are critical). How is this guy playing, tight or loose? If the opp is loose, I'm 3-bet jamming as a raise pot-commits me. If the opp is tight, I'm going to call and re-evaluate the turn.
On the turn, with the nut flush redraw, I'm leading again and since a standard bet pot-commits me, I'm jamming.

The key is a read on the opp on the flop... with none provided, I don't know what to do. Please always put reads into every hand that you post, as it's 100% critical information.

Agreed, you may want to try to get it in on the flop depending on what you think of the villain, but you had him drawing to 4 outs when the money got in the middle. It's hard to do a lot better than that .

It sucks that he got there, but it's just part of poker.
