I think I have a pretty healthy attitude about online dating. I try not to take it too seriously. Try not to spend much time wondering why certain men write and others don’t. As I wrote long ago, in Online Dating Survival – Lesson #1, I really don’t think that stuff has much to do with me. When I find myself pondering the why, I try to squelch it.
But this week served me a up a giant WHY.
Last Wednesday night I was all stressed out because I was having second thoughts about my date for that night. I’d previously been looking forward to meeting this guy. Really looking forward to it. And then in the days leading up to the date he sent me a few emails that really put me off.
Then, just as I was thinking about maybe cancelling on him he called and said he needed to reschedule. He was very apologetic. Said he had car trouble. He was so sweet and winning on the phone I was rethinking my assessment of him as a potential ass.
Well that was a week ago. I haven’t heard from him since. He never called or wrote to reschedule. Sure, the car trouble could have been a polite let down. Maybe he was having second thoughts about me at the same time that I was having second thoughts about him. Perhaps he didn’t like the way I responded to his pervy/aggressive emails. Whatever.
I just think it’s funny. This is a person who two weeks ago I was completely looking forward to meeting. And now he’s just in the email trash bin. Ah, online dating. Such a curious little world.
