Online dating never ceases to amaze me!
About a week or so ago I meet a guy who asks at the end of the date if I'd like to go out again. I say sure! He emails the next day and says he had fun and would definitely like to set something up! I say sure, get ahold of me next week! aaaannnddd nothing! Not surprised, has happened before, will happen again :)
Then mid-last week a guy I've been 'email/IM buddies' with since way back last winter starts to send me a lot of notes, and asks if I want to meet. He lives a ways away (about 45 min.) so never really gave him too much consideration, to me that's long distance (lol). I just figured we'd be IM/email pals, and we never got into any long drawn out conversations, always been very light.
Anyway, all of a sudden he wants to meet! On Friday we set up plans to meet Sat. afternoon at a local festival taking place in a town in between us, so equal distance, about 20 min or so for both. The very next day he cancels in the morning, says he needs to take a raincheck, he 'forgot' his daughter & granddaughter were coming up from another state to help celebrate a family event.
All I said in my response was "how'd you forget all that?" He wrote back, "I didn't forget, I thought it was next weekend". I wrote back making a joke of it "lol, you need a calendar". On the one hand, it could be a lame excuse, on the other, it could be a legitimate slip of the mind. Neither bodes well for my point of view of him :) Especially since .....
that's it! Nothing since! You'd think he'd at least contact me to ask how the event went, or something (I went anyway, with my Mom). I mean, what's the point of asking me out after all this time, then cancelling right away?
I know, there IS no answer! Never is, guys are strange, it's all part of the weird world of online dating.
