I don't date a lot but this is very common. Usually about 1-2hrs before the date i'll get a text with some bs excuse about why she can't go. It's anything from my back hurts to I'm becoming a shemale. One time I got pissed that I spent 3hrs of my evening waiting to see if she could actually go on a date and I was like fuck no I didn't just waste 3hrs doing nothing and I was able to convince her to go out and basically told her I didn't care that she wasn't going to be in her best state. Makes me wonder if I need to do that with every girl since maybe they are just trying to see if the guy really wants them. This happened again today, but honestly things just seemed a little weird with this girl and I wasn't in the mood to try to convince her.

I've done this ONCE... cancelled really last minute and i felt really bitchy about it. This guy was just quite persistent but he was really nice and I didn't want to flat out reject him, so I ended up saying yes. I should have just said no straight away though because I realised that i REALLY didn't want to meet him and made up some bull shit excuse to get out of it, the day of the date which was a meaner thing to do as opposed to just refusing initially.
That was just me, I don't know how often this applies though0
