Thumbs down Dating stinks!

Thats what it comes down to!!!

Went out with this guy once, we had a nice time. Made another date.

Date comes, he cancels b/c he had a car accident. I have no reason to doubt him, so I give the benefit of the doubt. I show concern, and we reschedule.

Tonight is the night. Texted about 45 minutes ago to make sure we are still on. No response, Date time is supposed to be right now.

Grrr...

Don't think I want to see him again now. Unless he died or something.

Why do men act like this?? Where the heck are the normal ones hanging out?

That sucks. But on the bright side, it's very considerate of him to show you what a jerk he can be upfront.
As far as, where are the normal guys - I found mine the old fashioned way - in a bar

I totally agree. It sucks. Next this guy! SO not worth your time.

I was in the "being a single mom sucks" mode earlier today but dating to find someone is even worse!

It isn't fun. It was fun, like when I was 22. Now. Not fun at all!

If you don't mind the online thing, my two sisters, a cousin and several friends have found LTR on www.plentyoffish.com

That's where I met this guy, actually. I feel no stigma with the online thing...it's really one of the few ways I meet people.

It's just annoying when this happens. I'm not asking for the impossible, just the same respect you would show to any other human. Like calling to say, "Hey, I'm sorry, but I cant make it tonight." Though that would be annoying too, at least it's being upfront.

As a previous poster said, be glad that he is showing you what a jerk he can be now before you invested anymore time in a relationship with him.

Sorry he blew you off. Dating can suck. If I found myself alone now, I don't think I would have any interest in dating. I hear the complaints from my girlfriends and I feel so bad for them.

You know what? People like that don't show respect to others. Any others. It's not just their potential dating partners. It's everyone in their orbit. I bet he treats his mother the same way. (It's like my grandmother told me when I was a teenager, "Watch how the guy treats his mother and his sister and the waitress. Because eventually, that's how he's going to treat you once he's done being on his best behavior.") People like that are generally rude and self-absorbed. You just found it out early on with this particular loser because he wasn't smart enough to be on his best behavior from the beginning.

And this bit about dealing with his sister? Yeah, right. He couldn't take 15 seconds to send a text? Unless he was solely responsible for pulling her out of a burning car and doing CPR, I doubt he was unable to find 15 seconds to send a text.

Especially the waiter or waitress. Watch how they treat people they do not have to treat well.

All the best guys are married to the ladies of the DIS. At least, that's what they'd have you believe. Sorry things didn't work out for you this time.

This is hilarious.

OP, keep looking, the right one is out there...maybe he won't be where you're looking and will fall right into your lap...but keep going.

Speaking from experience long ago*, I can tell you it's not just men.








*--Been married for awhile and wouldn't ever want to have to date again. Too much work. As Louis CK said, "I'd have to get all this (pointing to himself) showroom-ready. Right now, it's pure functionality."

Back in 1994, someone stood up a friend of my now wife. DW talked her friend into going out and that's how I met DW. Her friend is now married to my friend from the bar that same night. Getting stood up isn't always a bad thing

So sorry! Been over 20 years since I have dated and I can honestly say I hope I never have to do that again.

Pretty sad that the guy couldn't even text you. It doesn't get any easier than that as it's as disconnected and impersonal a person can be while still being somewhat courteous. @@
