Ever deal with this one? If you’ve been on the dating scene for a little while, it can happen. There are several ways to head this one off:
1) Realize that a coffee, drink or meal is JUST that – a coffee, drink or meal! It doesn’t have implications for the rest of your life. It’s no big deal.
2) Meet for coffee or arrange to meet at the bar and not at the table at the restaurant. A cup or coffee or one drink is easy and easy to leave.
3) Either make the meeting so quick & casual that it would almost be on your agenda to be there alone anyway OR do such a detailed recon by email or telephone that a “no-show” would be highly unlikely. Or both. Plan an errand that is on the same block as the date and it will never be a waste of time.
If you do all of these 3 things well, it won’t matter if your date shows up or not. And IF you are stood up the attitude to have is “Whew, dodged a bullet that would bring me frustration & disrespect. Thank goodness this one showed their colors early!” And then bounce off to do your errand! 🙂
