It sucks, right? Being stood up has never been nice. It’s when you realise that it cost you hours of your time and buckets of emotions to make up and dress up, you get to the date and actually get him something to drink for when he arrives and then the person doesn’t show up.
I mean, who does he think he is? Well, before we get to that question we have to hold on for a few minutes and find out if they are really not showing up. In the mean time, what is a girl supposed to do?
1. First 5 minutes – order something.
It feels so disrespectful to realize that your date hasn’t showed up 5 minutes after the agreed time and hasn’t called to tell you what’s going on. 5 minutes is still early for you to fume and be mad but you should start preparing yourself for the worst and keep in mind that it happens.
You are definitely looking hot and nice that should give you confidence enough to order for a drink or a snack for the mean time. As much as we both know that you didn’t tell the whole world that you had appeared for a date, deep inside you will always feel like everyone around you knows that you have been stood up, right?
No, they really don’t know so don’t go over your emotions and sip your drink like it’s the only thing you had come for.
2. 10 minutes – call him.
Act classy and know what’s going on. People don’t just cancel dates that they have been preparing for, for a long time. So, definitely something is not right at the moment.
If they pick up, don’t ask for reasons, let them tell you what could have possibly happened and whatever it is, whether it is really an excuse, let it go.
Don’t let how you feel ruin what you could possibly have between you two. It is a red flag that you can’t ignore but for now, you have to.
If they don’t pick up then they intentionally didn’t want to show up or they aren’t in position to pick up the phone. Yes, it could be an incident or a situation that they can’t avoid. Sip your drink as you are instagraming or fanning on any social media, then leave or enjoy the night.
3. 15 minutes – you have been stood up.
Do not be embarassed about it. You have no idea how many people get stood up on dates on a daily basis. Don’t ghost the situation, make sure you know why the other person never showed up.
This could be a blessing in disguise, they could have possibly broken your heart in pieces if they showed up so, take it easy on yourself. I wouldn’t advise you to get home after you have been stood up, go to the dopest bar around the corner and grab a glass of wine.
Calm your sexy body down and appreciate yourself for not being the culprit in this situation.
Dating these days is tough, there is more to that than being stood up so face it and sip your wine.
All you have to know is that there is a reason as to why someone did not show up for a date and until you know what is going on, do not freak or do anything that will leave the other person in a bad vibe with you. You are beautiful and smart, he missed that.
