Is he just supposed to be arriving when you posted or is he very late?

If he's just supposed ot be arriving, maybe he hit some traffic or something...

Considering he's almost 24 hours late that would be one hell of a traffic jam.....

He probably died. If he didn't, he'd be better off if he did should he ever run into Aurora63 again.

Sorry that happened to you. I've been married to DW for 38 years. I hope I'm never in a position to "date" again. If I did, I hope I'd treat someone with more courtesy than you've been shown.

Hang in there.

OP, The guy could have at least texted to let you know he cant make it. But then again what do you expect from online dating right?Sent from my Galaxy SII
My dh and and two wonderful boys.... online dating worked out great for me and several others I know.

Sorry it didn't seem to work for you.....

It's up to you what the next step is.
Well, you called it...received a text from him today saying sorry, he had been in Miami dealing with his sister's drama. Again, why not a message BEFORE the date? I have not decided how, or if, to respond. But you called it right, Dismom!!

He's only on strike 2!! Let him have one more chance. If every woman(man) gave up after a couple of missed communications, I would never had been born!

But do draw the line at strike three.

Ok, Your first post wasn't that clear.

The guy's a loser. If he calls, don't answer.

I'd probably say "Well, we've had a couple of missed connections so it's probably not meant to be. I wish you well" and be done.

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.
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.

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.

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

Some guys do this because they don't have a backbone & are just jerks.

I second the PlentyOfFish recommendation. I met my current girlfriend there. But those I know on there say you do get more than your fair share of weirdos.

Just play safe & wait out the right guy. Prince Charming is out there somewhere.
