Making a Big Fuss For Nothing

Well, it seems I've made a big fuss over nothing. Date Guy, Matt, didn't respond to my text message. We had discussed that we would contact each other Saturday afternoon/night to check if Sunday is still good and to decide on what to do. Well, Saturday has come and gone. And now it's Sunday morning and nothing. I knew I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up - and I didn't let myself. I knew that it was too good to be true. So I didn't let myself obsess about it too much. And yes, perhaps there's still a chance - maybe his phone died - maybe something happened that he needed to take care of - but for now, it looks like I have no date tonight.

I really was looking forward to it. I was hoping that tonight's date will just be a completely better experience than that last date I had... and now I'm just bummed about it all. BUT, I'm telling myself that I'm not going to get the best of me. If tomorrow comes and goes and he still hasn't text/contacted me back, then I will just take it and move on. I've learned my lesson, and I'm not going to let it consume me again.

Besides, I have another date lined up in mid-December. It's further down the road, so again, it might not happen... but it's something else to look forward to.

I guess just wish me luck in both situations.

Guys sure can be jerks sometimes! The first guy with whom I ever made a date didn't bother to call and tell me that his dad had come to town and he was going to have dinner with him instead. I called him an hour or so before we were supposed to meet and that's when he told me. Or blatantly lied to me. Whatever.


Never heard from him again after that.

don't get down. you never know. you might hear from him again. and if not, things will eventually turn out for the best. at least you've got the other date to look forward to.

what an inconsiderate wanker, matt is. and if he doesn't call you by tomorrow to apologise, then i'll promote (or demote) him to a f*cking wanker! cheers.

I guess just keep busy and distract yourself (so that you don't think about the situation/him that much).

Take it easy + take care of yourself!

Aww, don't worry about it there plenty of men out there!! No need letting one guy get you down, it's not worth it, haha. I need to learn that, though...

Don't give him the power to ruin your day, week, etc. Yes it was an exciting prospect because you are a genuine and decent person who trusts. He seems not to be. Who knows how fucked over he has been in the past. Better to pity him maybe. Because he lacks such basic social/people skills he is unlikely to have solid friendships and experience fulfilling authentic relationships.

In my experience people like this were raised poorly, if at all, and have never really grown up. They know how to act like adults, but not be adult.
