I was messaging this guy online, then we began to swap text messages, he rang the once. We arranged on Tuesday night to meet Thursday night. He was 6ft 4 professional swimmer, 3 years younger than me; working in the police station and training to become a solicitor. Average looking and seemed to come across alright over messaging. I’m 6ft which I know some guys have an issue with, but he said he’s a good couple of inches on me, my height wasn’t a problem in his eyes.
So today lunchtime I sent him a text asking are we still on for later. I had no response. Later I checked my online account no message. But still I decided to doll myself up and stick to our arrangement to meet.
I turned up to the pub 10 minutes late. Walked in passed a table of Christmas office partiers having a meal. Walked down the other end of the pub, aware that older gents who no doubt prop the bar up every night where looking at me. Could I spot this tall 6ft 4 guy, nope. I knew he wasn’t going to be there but I thought I’d best turn up just incase he did show and had left home that day without his phone.
Men a simple text ‘no I can’t make tonight’ that is all he had to do, if he changed his mind about meeting. Instead I felt well a bit hurt, stupid with myself for going ahead and turning up. Plus disappointed.
I think thats it for dating 2012, its been a year of if I’m honest pretty rubbish dates. I hope 2013 fairs better.
