So I was supposed to go on a (first) date with this guy. However, he sent me a text saying we have to " reschedule to another day " because he's taking off to wherever with his friends and he won't be back until X day. No apology, nothing.
But he went into details as to why he was taking off (he's got a sudden job break bla bla).
I still haven't responded to his text. But I want to find something that screams :
- I don't like to be messed with.
- I'm not a doormat
- Thanks for being so rude
- I couldn't care less why you had to cancel
- (And probably) Have a nice life
I'm not sure I should write him off, but I find his behavior a tiny bit rude. He could have come up with a more respectful excuse especially as he's the one who has been insisting on setting up this stupid date. Thankfully, the cancellation wasn't last minute.
What can I send him as a response?

Sudden job break is a lie, it's to legitimize his rude behavior to an acceptable standard.
Notice that he gave you a command, instead of a statement or apology. And specifically in a manner which benefits him.
This guy is pro. Gimme his number, I wanna get tips from the bro.
Must of learned his texting from a pick up artist book.
He's displayed that he is more important than you, his friends are higher priority than you, given you an order which favors him only while making him dominant at the same time. He threw the ball in your court to see how'd you respond. How you respond indicates your tolerance of order, and he will gauge according.
A lot of girls fall for this subtle, yet obvious manipulation tactic.
I believe manipulation like this is sick. Personally..0
