It's a first date and he cancelled about two hours before we were meant to meet. His reason is genuine and it's last minute because he only just found out he can't make it. I'm really annoyed because I was hyped up for meeting him and told people I was. Is this normal I'm super pissed off?
Well it's ok to be a bit disappointed or even slightly annoyed at what happened but I mean from what you told us it was a legitimate reason and it was beyond his control so you shouldn't be mad at him and I think it's not that you are mad at him but rather mad at the fact that the last couple of guys have kind of let you down.
I'd give this one a break and another a chance, don't let your past dictate your future.
I once dated a girl named April. Funny story. We had more 5 or 6 broken "first dates" before we had our actual first date together, all last minute cancellations due to legitimate reasons (in my case it was because I got stuck watching my sister's kids because something came up, and in her case it was usually because she was sick/allergies acting up badly). The first couple of times we were both extremely worried the other might be standing us up/ditching/just not interested, but it eventually sort of became a running joke we laughed about.
is it understandable you are upset? yes. is it understandable if you are upset at HIM? no. Of course you're bummed out. of course you were stressing and hyped to meet, and now you have no plans, and disappointed. I get that and sympathize. But if he had a genuine, legitimate reason to cancel, you can't fairly hold it against him. reschedule, and hope things go more smooothly next time.
It's understandable of course but... best is to send him a very nice message that it's no problem. Wish him luck with what he needed to do and say you're still very much looking forward to seeing him soon :D
You sound quite dominating which can come across as irritating. I'm not sure how your focus is not shifted to the next date or to what may have caused him to cancel but rAther you are stomping your feet because you didn't your date.
I guess I'm wondering why you're pissed off rather than disappointed. It almost sounds as if having someone you find attractive interested in you is more important than you being interested in him. I'd give him another shot.
It's fine to be disappointed. However, you should not react negatively to him at all. You have no right to hold a grudge against somebody who had a legitimate reason to miss out on a date.
What if you ate bad goucomole and you couldn't stop shitting, do you get on phone and explain?
It's half and half. Given it was short notice, it's understandable to be bummed about it. But he had a genuine reason so you shouldn't really hold it against him. At least it's better than showing up and him telling you nothing at all.
It's understandable to be disappointed, which can be be displayed as annoyed but try not to take it out on him. After all, as you am said, it was a valid excuse. If it happens again though, that would be the time to show him your displeasure. Hopefully, for this time (if he's smart) he'll try to make it up to you
Its okay to be annoyed especially with actual reasons. However, something like that can be toxic in a relationship. Its not something worth harboring negative feelings about. You may start taking it out on him in the long run even if you dont mean to.
