He made the move but then blew me off?

so this guy I've been talking to on and off for a couple months told me that he really wanted to get to know me and take me out sometime. He suggested to watch the sunset and get dinner sometime and I agreed. Then a couple days later he asked again and we made plans for Monday night. Monday came around and he texted me and said that he couldn't go anymore and when I asked why he said it was because he didn't have any money for dinner or has to get to the beach. I thought he was just blowing me off so I didn't text him back. I told my friend what happened and they said that he probably was telling the truth and didn't have any money because he doesn't have a job currently. After about 30 minutes I texted him back and told him that I could just drive and he responded by saying that his friend was already on his way over and that he was sorry. What the heck happened?
