    Have you ever been stood up for a date? or Have you intentionally stood someone else up?

    The scenario is you have (recently) met someone and exchanged contact information. There have been a couple of conversations and a decision was made to go out for the (first time) this weekend. Either they or you did not show up and never called to cancel the date. Essentially someone was (dumped) prior to actually dating. Do you write it off or pursue some type of closure as if you had been in a "relationship"?

    Never had either happen as well, But I would say if it's the first time to even go on a date? You not need any closure, I would not have any feelings about it at all - I would not even know them.

    If they chose to call with a good explanation fine, if not he is probably married and just saved me from wasting my precious time.  ( No need for closure period. ) You don't even know them, and furthermore maybe you don't want to know them.

    If your seeking closure on someone you do not even know.. work on your self esteem first and foremost, You should be thinking oh well and then go shopping with a friend or something instead, It's a  waste of your life and time.

    Think about it, and even if you got someone like that who could do that to you, To manage to call and go on a date would your really want to?

    And then what? dream of spending 20 years with someone you cannot change?

    I've seen the nightmare it is for people to catch the one they should have ran from, Trust me - it's not pretty.

    No to the first, yes to the second.  My mate and I, one weekend back in the 60s, arranged to meet many girls the following Friday with the intention of standing them up, we arranged to meet them at the same place, under the clock in the town centre. We then waited in a door way and watched them all turn up, milling around and being puzzled, we sneaked off, got our motor bikes went back and shouted at them then we scarpered.  Of course, we never knew if they all turned up, so we may have been stood up by some of them.  At the time it was a good laugh, but now, as an adult, I think it was a shameful thing to do.

    No never got stood up, or actually never stood up someone. I did bail out in the middle of a blind date.

    We were double dating, it was my first date with the guy and my friend's second date.  Can't recall were we went but the guys kept giving each other these creepy knowing looks, so my friend and I went off to the bathroom and then snuck the door.

    Unfortunately, we were quite a ways from her house as I recall and it took us a while to get back...and of course we kept looking over our shoulders to see if they were coming after us.  They didn't...  That was in the day before cell phones and as I recall neither of us had any money with us to make a phone call for a ride.

    From that day on I always had money in my purse for those kind of occasions.
