This video above by Matthew Hussey discusses what to do when a guy flakes out on your date at the last minute. His advice is spot on!
The only thing I would have added to his input is to tell the woman that she shouldn’t have texted the guy after he bailed on their date. She texted him a few days later asking him how he was.
If you really want to know if someone is interested in you, let them show you!
After someone disrespects you and blows you off with a terrible last minute excuse, why would you want to see them again? They showed their true colors and who they really are.
If you are kind enough to give them a second chance, it’s up to them to make it up to you. If you become the aggressor in this situation, you will never know if he is truly interested in you or just texting back because you make it easy for him.
If he had called or texted with an apology the next day and scheduled another date that is one thing, but texting him back first without having any etiquette expectations shows that you have very little respect for yourself. That is what dating is all about; seeing if there is not only a connection but also paying attention to the red flags that happen early on.
When a date flakes on you or ghosts you on the first few dates without a valid reason you need to remove yourself from having any further contact. First impressions make or break that second date and in this case you can do much better.
