I've just been stood up!

My first date in 6 months.

Agreed with Robert* that we would meet in my local tonight at 7.30pm. (Tinder).

No sign of him in said local.

My whatsapp messages are delivered but not read. I can see he's been online. I rang once - he didn't answer. Rang again, straight to voicemail.

I'm now sitting alone, all dressed up, make up on, hair blow-dried. Nowhere to go.

Suggestions?!

What a bastard! Was it definitely tonight? Get a bit merry and talk to randoms? Post on Facebook 'are any friends having a night out you can gatecrash'?

How fucking rude.

Anyone else in the pub looking likely? wink

Do you have friends locally you can drop in on? A pub where you'd know someone?

I hate that people think it's ok to behave that way. It's so rude and spineless. Curse Robert the housing officer.

What an arse!

hehe junk messages hehe

What a loser he is. Don't give up. NEXT!!

TheHuffAndPuffALot Fri 17-Nov-17 20:09:24

Carry on regardless! You're out now anyway, and you are looking great, so go chat to some random and see where the night takes you.
It's always the spontaneous night's that are the best!

Gggrr bastard. Though my friend almost stood a girl up accidentally- she thought 7, he thought 7.30. he arrived at 7.15 thinking he was early, she was already there and pissed off. They've been dating a while now though. Hopefully it'll be something like that.

PsychoPumpkin Fri 17-Nov-17 20:10:18

Hehe, I hope he gets a few odd messages now you’ve posted his number!

Justbookedasummmerholiday Fri 17-Nov-17 20:10:36

Wonder if he was the man who had been snooping at an op's details from another council office? He knew her address when she hasn't given it and was questioning her about benefits!!

ChickenVindaloo2 Fri 17-Nov-17 20:11:29

I've posted his photo on my facebook page to warn my friends!

ChickenVindaloo2 Fri 17-Nov-17 20:16:40

Mumsnet you killjoys!!!! Have none of you ever been stood up?! Now I will need to do all the legwork myself of signing him up for PPI claims and pizza vouchers!!

BabyLord Fri 17-Nov-17 20:18:50

OP i think you need to calm down...

ChickenVindaloo2 Fri 17-Nov-17 20:20:00

Baby, I think you need to get a sense of humour! grin

DearMrDilkington Fri 17-Nov-17 20:21:07

Chill out a bit. For all you know he had an emergency.

ChickenVindaloo2 Fri 17-Nov-17 20:21:59

You don't block someone if you're having an emergency!

DearMrDilkington Fri 17-Nov-17 20:23:59

You do if they non-stop ring and text.

Crunchymum Fri 17-Nov-17 20:27:27

What a prick.

Seriously even if he changed his mind at the eleventh hour, he should still behave like a decent human being and tell you (still wouldn't be nice for you OP)

GeekyWombat Fri 17-Nov-17 20:27:54

Wow sounds like he dodged a bullet with you OP. Naming someone and posting their number online with a load of identifying details? Nice.

Is it good he stood you up? Of course not. Is this a reasonable reaction? No bloody way.

ChickenVindaloo2 Fri 17-Nov-17 20:27:56

This is how it went:

7.32pm whatsapp :Me: Hello, I'm at the bar, can I get you anything?

7.45pm: I phoned, it rang out.

7.50pm: I phoned, straight to voicemail and picture disappeared so blocked around this point.

ChickenVindaloo2 Fri 17-Nov-17 20:29:13

Thank you Crunchymum (how's the pregnancy going?!) and others.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned...grin

Crunchymum Fri 17-Nov-17 20:31:56

So what was she supposed to do?

Just scuttle off quietly and hang her head in shame.

Pregnancy is going slowly!! Getting there though. grin

ChickenVindaloo2 Fri 17-Nov-17 20:32:08

MNHQ I didn't post his blimmin surname! I can't even post his age or (fairly general) job?! FFS!

Florene Fri 17-Nov-17 20:34:19

What was his picture before he blocked you? <nosy>
