So, I received the brutal treatment of a no show last night. I stood outside a bar, waiting for an hour, only for her not to message me or contact at all, and then not to show.
Naturally, I was left frustrated and angry at the situation.
She later messaged me to tell me that she had fallen asleep. Now, I'm not buying that, maybe it's true but if so, it's not a good sign ahead of a first date.
But, there's something about me which won't let people stand over me for too long. I hate people believing that they have the upper hand. So how do I flip this situation?
I'm happy walking away but I don't want to do so without her being the one who feels deflated. Why should she have any control over my emotions? Clearly, she's not good enough for me.
So. Is there anything I can say? Oh and, yup, she was a flake from online. Easiest place for anyone to flake from.
She was the first woman that has ever stood me up so I think that reinforces my attitude of not wanting to end with her having the upper hand.
