What do when your boyfriend cancels a date?

My boyfriend canceled our date. He canceled because he had to take a exam over. When he gets upset he don't like to do anything. I was not happy. We don't go out much at all Because we are both busy. Should I do the samething to him.

  • Unless your age is really 16, then no, don't go down to his level. But he may have needed to take the exam again, especially if it was a professional exam. Now, if he's in the habit of cancelling dates, talk to him about it. If things don't change then, perhaps time to move on.

  • He had to take an exam. It wasn't like he ditched on you to something immature. Just chill and reschedule the date without making a big deal over it.

  • You shouldn't cancel a date just to spite him, if that's what you're asking. Cancelling because of retaking an exam is a perfectly reasonable thing to do. However, I am concerned about the "we don't go out much" comment.

  • " He canceled because he had to take a exam over. "

    He values his education. If you want to get back at him for that then you don't deserve him. Sorry.

  • There are somethings in life that are excluded in rules and in circumstances. Things that can't be helped or things that are very important. If he cancels a date for the death of a family, a school paper, an exam, or an emergency or an old friend is in town you need to understand and he does too. These are just facts of life. Instead of feeling hurt you should wish him luck and instead maybe meet him after the exam. He'd probably be stressed and tired after so just cuddle while watching a movie should suffice. School should be on the same level as priorities as you. If you feel it is higher then maybe start studying with him. When you become a distraction from his schooling, then he might become conflicted. So just support him and study with him. Never hurt someone because your feelings might be hurt. If you love him then you wouldn't want to see him in pain.

  • Don't cancel a date just to get back at him. I understand being upset because you're left with nothing to do, but you can't be mad at him for having an exam to take.

  • You really shouldn't do the same... he had a test, its reasonable. It'd just be immature to do the same AND you don't see each other much, so why would you purposely not see him, just to get back at him? Not worth it.

  • One of you has to be the mature one. And at the moment it sounds like that one of you isn't you. Don't react immaturely. I'm sure he wanted to go on the date, but be honest, would you really want to spend the evening with a grouch anyway? I'm sure he'll make it up to you.
