That was a bust!

So after gathering the confidence and deciding to go ahead with meeting the guy I was talking to online, he messaged me today saying he was going to cancel.

I found that strange, since we have been talking for weeks and even today, we had been texting back and forth since 8am.

It was about 3:20pm when I got his message and honestly, I was a little shocked at my reaction. 

I was really dissapointed.

This is how the conversation went:

  
The top of his first message was replying to what we were talking about before.

Like I said, I was shocked that I was legitimately dissapointed. I think it was mainly because I had accepted the meeting and had come to terms that whatever happened would happen. I guess I wasn’t expecting him to pull out.

It dissapointed me because I guess I saw potential there and suddenly none of that mattered.

I tried to play it off and make the best out of it. I think I handled it in the best way possible. I was nice and he was nice.

My friend was supportive and gave me the ‘there is plenty of fish in the sea’ talk, which was super cute of her, but I found that once I got over the disappointment, I got really mad.

Like, we had been communicating every day, all day, for a full two weeks. HE was the one who contacted ME. HE was the one who asked to meet up, not ME. And now HE is pulling out?

I get that people have changes of the heart and I’m not trying to imply that I would have begged him to meet up with me, but wouldn’t you know if you wanted to meet with someone after two weeks?

Now I’m over my anger and I’ve decided to put it behind me. Like I said, it’s disappointing to me because I saw a lot of potential, but obviously that wasn’t something that was shared between us. Which is fine. Not everyone is suited for everyone. And I certainly have more self worth than to beg or convince someone to meet me when they obviously don’t want to.

I guess we will see where this journey takes me!

On the plus side, my friend and I are still going to go get milkshakes as a ‘fuck you’ to him and the universe. Lol!

Talk soon! X

  1. Oh no! I didn’t expect to be reading this at all! I’m so sorry he did this to you. That’s so strange though. Hang in there!

    I had a few guys do that to me after the first meeting – well they just stopped talking completely. It’s interesting how things happen sometimes. Keep your head held high and know that you didn’t do anything wrong. πŸ™‚

  2. I think that’s a good thing, that he is so aware of what he is comfortable with and is putting his feelings first,taking care of what is most important in his life. You’ll want someone exactly like that, but who has reached the point of feeling ready for the next step. It’ll happen. This is early in the game, and you too are just starting to gain your confidence back. Xx

    1. Yeah, I absolutely agree with you. I think it was just the process of shock, disappointment and anger. I guess I wasn’t expecting it because things were going so well. But I’m not going to force someone to meet me. Who knows what’s around the corner from here πŸ™‚ thanks lovely xx

    1. Thank you. I think that I handled it like anyone else would have (or should have). If he changed his mind, I’m not going to blame him for it. I change my mind all the time! I think now that it’s the next day and I have been able to process it, I’m glad that he was honest enough to give me an explanation and end things nicely. Not that there was anything to end, but you know what I mean πŸ™‚

  3. I’m so sorry for the disappointment. But this was a great experience for you! It forced you to break out a bit and try something new! There’s not much time for that when you have a baby, so mad props to you for getting out there. You did great.

    1. Yeah, I agree. I think that after talking to someone for weeks, that you would know if you wanted to meet them!
      I’m glad that I didn’t meet him because if I had have met him in person, and THEN he did this, I would have assumed it was because of my weight and probably not bothered with the Internet dating again. Things happen for a reason though! I guess I will see πŸ™‚
