A great first date with Doug (see post here) turned into a big fat nothing. Talk about going from 60 to zero. What a letdown. After some additional texting, Doug initiated meeting up for a second date for dinner but then canceled the day before. Some more texting here and there … and then he plans a third date, again for dinner and drinks … and cancels about 3 hours before we’re supposed to go out. Our last text exchange goes:
D: Hey whats going on?
M: Hey hey! Been running around getting errands and stuff done all day haha how are you?
D: I actually really hurt my back this morning in the gym. Been stuck on the couch since I got home. Can we rain check tonight?
M: Darn, was hoping the third time would be the charm and we’d actually connect. Good luck with your back.
D: I feel awful about this, I was looking forward a fun night out…
That was in October. Think I’ve heard from him since? Big fat nope. Looking forward to a fun night out? Yeah right.
Guys are just beyond confusing to me, to be honest. I don’t understand why you’d put in the effort if you are genuinely uninterested and not planning on ever meeting up again. It’s a massive waste of everyone’s time. Moral of the story: Either follow through or don’t. Being wishy washy is obnoxious and leading someone on is rude.
Can you tell I’m salty?
Oh well, I’ve been on plenty of interesting dates since then. Details to come …
