I met a woman via online and we exchanged a few brief texts and a Friday phone chat. She was vivacious and friendly and flirty over the phone, so I invited her to meet up for a drink last night at 7. She never showed. No phone call. No text. Happens to the best of us. So how did I handle it? Well, first off, I didn't text or call her as I waited at the bar. I just decided to wait 15 minutes--and not one minute more. Left at 7:15. Next thing: I went to the gym and worked out. And it was a good workout, too. What better way to work off the frustration and dissapointment of being flaked, right? Last thing (and this is the best part!): I texted her a message this morning: HPD: "I am SO SORRY that I forgot about our date last night. Time got away from me and I just forgot! Hope you'll accept my apology." Her response, 5 minutes later: FLAKEGIRL: " No problem. I left a bit early, hope your weekend went well." Now, guys, I don't advocate lieing, but, in my opinion, a girl who disrespects my time has to be checked--and I'm not giving her the mental satisfaction of thinking that she wasted my time. And, this girl's ambiguous response tells me a LOT about her character. Apparently, she thinks it's OK to stand up a person and wish wim a good weekend--all in the same sentence. She doesn't take dating seriously. Ahhh yes...another flaking chapter in the crazy world of dating.

UPDATE: I texted her, again apologizing for "missing" the date. I then invited her to a really nice restaurant--all the while hoping that she would show up and know what it's like to be stood up. She declined the fancy restaurant date and then admitted she never showed up for our initial date. I replied that since she has three kids she can't afford to stand up guys, that most guys wouldn't mess mess with a chick with 3 kids. I don't think she appreciated that. LOL. Oh well. What goes around comes around.

HPD it is an online date and just maybe you should look for a little more intelligence in the package.  This one is somewhat lacking LOL

HPD, I agree that it was a very disrespectful thoughtless act, Not a person worth wasting your time with. The same would go for a Man that would do the same thing.

HPD that's the usual issue with online 'dating'.Most of the time the women on dating sites,who say that they are interested,are either just timewasters or scammers.But asking them for a date and seeing if they show up is the best way of sorting out the right ones. It's unusual though to find one who'll take timewasting or scamming to the point of even saying yes to a date and not showing up.
