A girl bailed on our date. We were supposed to go to the movies.
This is what she texted me:
"I think I'm not gonna go today because I feel sick. I also have to work early tomorrow :(. I'm sorry and I promise to go to the cinema with you another day. I hope you can understand."
What shall I reply?

If you were already there, this is pretty shitty and lame on her behalf and probably she wasn't sick, but you never know.
If she gave you fair warning, then I think there's a good chance she's being honest. My personal experience is that if people want to go out they will generally try to schedule or defer to a different day. It seems like she is partially doing this, though I normally try to actually offer up a specific day to make it seem less vague and less like I am going to defer something indefinitely.
I would definitely play along with the sick. Chance is it is true. I think better to be nice and safe.
Also, if you want to check up on whether she is really interested, ask her to suggest a day that would work for her for a reschedule or ask her to call you once she is feeling better (if she has a longer-term type of sick ex. flu, fever). This way you are off the hook about chasing her. If she is sincere about wanting to meet you two she will suggest a time, if not, she will find an excuse to put it off and re-discuss later, but never contact you. Very simple and either way you'll know.
