    My date stood me up and her phone just goes to voicemail

    A little bit peeved. I had a date set up at a restaurant/bar for 7pm and she never turned up. I was left drinking lime and soda for half-an-hour then I came home.

    She is not answering her phone. We had one previous date together and I thought things went well, just in a friendly manner with no hints or any expectations of romance.

    You keep weird company if you go out with strangley girls.

    Why do people post personal things like this.

    Just wondered.

    Ok it's the internet. but still.

    I am sure there are other sites for this kind of dating trauma.

    But having said that, it has happened to many of us. Well it has happened to me. And I got over it. After years of trauma. LOL.

    You realise there may be something about you that she just can't stand? That she managed to be civil through the first date but really isn't interested?

    Some of these posts sound very entitled - 'you deserve better', 'kind of rude', 'not worth the effort'. Maybe she was thinking exactly the same about you.

    She doesn't have to text, she doesn't have to explain. She doesn't owe you anything.

    Good for you, Ash.. people need to understand that not every single person here breathes MSE. Some actually have real life business to deal with... so a delayed response is well within the realms.

    Thanks Danny. I think regardless of the time between the post and my reply, I made a pretty valid point. I've spoken in this very thread in defence of the same guy who shocked me with his comment. It seems a bit strange that people will find fault with me for responding to a post outside of their time frame but not give their opinion on the post, or the fact that it's been left there for four weeks so the man obviously meant what he said.

    But c'est la vie.

    I hope you're keeping well x

    b) you were acquaintances or part of a big group of friends; you wanted it to be more than friends and she didn't aka you got friendzoned. That happens to many of us and you have to decide if you are OK with that.

    Or possibly the phrases "Seeing someone", "going out with someone" and "dating someone" all have subtly different meanings which are different to the ones they generally had when I was doing (trying to do) them.

    When those phrases have different meanings to the two (or more) people doing them with each other - then we get more threads here
