Date: College Intern

I basically had the same exact evening planned out that I had for hiccups, but my date flaked. She called me around 3:30 and told me she woke up with a fever in the morning and didn’t think it would be a good idea to hang out. Based upon her tone and what she was saying, I do believe she would have hung out if I pushed it and she was probably sincere that she had a fever and I suppose the reason she waited so long to call was to see if she felt better but the end result was someone flaking on me 3 ½ hours before the date and with two tickets to a comedy show that I could not get refunded. I was pretty ticked off and she lost some major points with me.

On the phone she wanted to know if it would be alright if we hung out perhaps later in the coming week or next weekend and looking back I think I was a bit dismissive with her on the phone, but rightly so. I ended up bringing a girl I’ve been seeing for awhile with me, but I hate silliness.

I think if she text messages me or calls me I will ignore it for a day or two if not indefinitely. I do not know if I am even interested at this point. Part of me is always going to be skeptical about the fever…I had lunch with her the day before and she didn’t look at all like she was coming down with anything. I just don’t like having people in my life that I cannot depend on and this is just a sign of that and an indication that it would not be wise to plan an elaborate date with this girl that requires any sort of money down before hand because who knows if it will happen or not. I think I may just cut her loose.

Enough venting.

Indeed. Using the weather was an excuse based on truism. I shouldn't let the cold affect my motives. I will start a convo or two this week.

Thanks for the reality check.
