I was asked out on a date by a guy at my work. Then right before our date, he tells me about a hour before that he can't make it because his mom died. Now, days later, he wants to try again. But I checked the obituary death records and his mom isn't listed at all. My friends say I was probably stood up and he's messing with my feelings by lying just to not see me. But when he asked for a retry, he seemed really sincere about what was going on. I'm not sure.

Either way chill out. If his mom really died he probably won't be right to date for a while. If he stood you up, good riddance. Here is a cat.

There are soooo many more less tragic lies he could have told you, but he's throwing out the big one before you even go out on a date. Red flag. I feel like if the story were true, he wouldn't just be ready all of a sudden to start dating, he would probably need to take a moment or a dozen to grieve a bit before trying to go back out again. I think you're setting yourself up for a lot of heartache with this guy. If you do give him a chance, I would put your radar up on high alert.0
