Lady Shares How A Hinge Date Abandoned Her With The Excuse Of Moving His Car And Never Came Back
There are a number of situations where you might decide against going on a scheduled date. You'll need to learn how to cancel a meeting while maintaining your dignity in that situation.
You might be having second thoughts about going on a blind date or one set up through a dating website. It might be someone you've already dated once, but you felt pressured to go on another date despite your better judgment.
Any of these scenarios can be met with a creative defense. We have to consider the people we are involved with, regardless of how bad a date might turn out or whether we are facing a crisis.
Don't agree to go on a date in the first place if you're not at all intrigued. Don't use sympathy or boredom as a justification.
In mid-January, according to the 28 years old Rachel Wilson, she met a date at a sports bar in North Carolina. He appeared to be fairly laid-back and cool on the dating app Hinge, where the two first connected.
But before the night had even begun, this man got up and said he had to move his vehicle. After a short while, the man texted her with the words "Sorry, wasn't feeling it" and an emoji of a sad face.
This guy's got the guts.

"I stood in front of the restaurant waiting for about five minutes before I got the text," the poor lady said. She went on saying:
“I didn’t respond and immediately deleted his number and have heard no word from him since. I think if I was not a confident person this would have honestly wrecked me, but luckily I am very secure and confident in who I am, so it won’t affect the way I approach dating moving forward.”
A part of me is glad that the lady didn't have to put up with this guy for any longer than forty-five seconds because he sounds like such a complete coward. Rachel continued by saying that initially, she did like the man.
“I liked that he made solid plans right off the bat. I hate when you meet someone on a dating app and talk back and forth forever, with no solid plans to meet. We went to a sports bar-type place, and were planning on getting chicken wings and a beer.”
She posted a TikTok video that rapidly went viral in order to make fun of the entire situation.
When we have the opportunity to inform them that we won't be there, we can't just leave them hanging. You can make all the excuses you want to get out of a meeting, but it's absolutely rude to do so.
The comments on the guy varied from sympathetic to indignant. "I had a guy fake having MS for five minutes into mine. Happened last week," one person noted.
It's a complete disaster out there, my friends. So let's make sure that we're always prepared for moments like this and always be confident in ourselves.
