to be annoyed he ditched me?

Been texting a friend of a friend for a couple of weeks. (He's called Jason and he is hoooot. He's a builder so he has a nice body. Haha) he mainly seems like a nice guy, I think

He wanted to meet up last week but I couldn't due to childcare. He got a bit sulky but was fine in the end. So we arranged to go out tomorrow - his idea, not mine. Only now he's said his mates are going out now so he's going to go out with them instead.

Which, you know I'm not bothered about, if he wants to go out with his mates then fine, but considering he had plans already I think it is a bit rude?

Am I wrong to think well fuck him, I'm not just being "pencilled in until a better offer comes along" and to just tell him to forget it altogether.

Or is that my cynicism from exes being twats and should I just benefit of the doubt?

I've arranged a babysitter who I still have to pay. I now have a boring Friday night with nothing to do and a wasted £30. Urgh, so annoying

Not unreasonable to be a bit annoyed, you'd be very unreasonable to give benefit of doubt and a second chance.

He sounds like an arsehole - what can you do?? Be grateful you found out before you got involved!! Lucky escape.

He got sulky about your childcare issues and now he's out with the lads when you have got childcare - bugger that. Life's too short.

He might be hot, but he sounds like a bit of a twonk.
Lucky escape!
Can't you go out with some girlfriends instead?

Nah.
FTS.

It's good to learn he's not a keeper early on rather than finding out further down the road. It sounds SS though he wants to do what he wants when he wants and doesn't consider you/sulks. Bin. Next!

TheAnswerIsYes Thu 23-Jul-15 23:02:02

He's a dick. At least you found out now before you got too involved.

annoyedisright Thu 23-Jul-15 23:02:34

Thanks for the response . I'm glad I'm not being unreasonable.

I don't have any friends ������ well not ones who like me enough to socialise with me anyway lol. I can have a bath in peace. It will be nice to have a bath without the kids needing a poo/a cuddle/help to pick their noses grin

I think £30 is a fairly cheap price to pay for a lucky escape. He sounds like a tosser!

annoyedisright Thu 23-Jul-15 23:03:14

Those question marks were laughy face emoticons. Apparently they didn't work ha

TheWitTank Thu 23-Jul-15 23:04:33

Nah, don't be anyone's 2nd choice. Enjoy your peaceful bath smileflowers

annoyedisright Thu 23-Jul-15 23:07:01

Aye I was second fiddle to my ex, I don't fancy that again.
I used to be somewhat of a pushover but now I just can't be bothered.

I want to be a priority rather than an afterthought or a last resort. If that means I am classed as "high maintenance" well then so be it

Lucky escape! Enjoy your relaxing free evening, it'll be better than going out and making polite chat with a numpty like that.

Thirty quid for a babysitter!! In my day you got to eat what you wanted from the fridge, use the phone all night, rummage in the Mrs's pants drawer then get a lift home off Mr and a fiver for your trouble. Tenner tops.

Rather than completely waste the babysitter, I'd go to the cinema and get some Ben and Jerry's while there, then come back and have the peaceful bath. He's very rude to ditch you after making arrangements so I disagree that he's a nice guy. I'd look for a genuinely nice guy instead.

Second cinema on your own, popcorn and ice cream. The cinemas dark. Nobody cares if you are there on your own, and if they do, they care for about 2 seconds before getting on with their own lives. Don't contact him. if he's sulky because you can't get a babysitter for your kids, he's not ready to be in a relationship with someone with kids.

MakeItACider Thu 23-Jul-15 23:29:37

Yep, cinema Op! Don't waste your night off.

AlpacaPicnic Thu 23-Jul-15 23:47:04

I fourth the cinema! Sneak in some snacks in a massive hand bag and go and see Magic Mike xxl something you fancy!

retrorobot Thu 23-Jul-15 23:55:34

A piece of advice. You already have baggage. Most men who are as "hooot" as you say this guy is can get someone without the baggage. You are lucky that you got treated this badly this early. If your exes are twats as well then maybe you should think about what you are doing unless you want to repeat the pattern.

cuntycowfacemonkey Thu 23-Jul-15 23:59:19

Wow Retrobot, nice hmm

MakeItACider Fri 24-Jul-15 00:04:00

Retrobot- gosh, aren't you charming! hmm

retrorobot Fri 24-Jul-15 00:07:27

Sorry - too tired of listening to the same old complaints on this site. If women want to be treated better then they need to stop going for me based on looks, especially if those women already have children. They also need to stop doing the texting thing for days. I bet the guy has been having a right laugh with his mates at the texts. The OP described him as sulky but still wanted to go on a date with him. Please - have a bit more self-respect.

MakeItACider Fri 24-Jul-15 00:14:56

Retrobot - I think she made the 'hooot' comment slightly tongue in cheek.

It's not nice to be stood up, especially when it costs you financially. She's having a whinge. She's allowed.

Definitely a small price to pay for a lucky escape!

Of course you should tell him to get lost, but you know that, right? A disrespectful partner is much worse than no partner at all!
