Kellogg’s Cornflakes

Something happened to me for the first time tonight: I was meant to meet a girl for a date but she flaked. I wish that statement didn’t need any qualifiers. Of course, I’ve had girls flake on me before in all manners (no-shows included) but never like this.

We were supposed to meet at 7:30 and around 7.15 she messaged to say that she would be a little late. That’s totally expected and so I headed out to our meeting place in a train station five minutes from mine and sat in a coffee shop with a small americano.

She then promises she’ll be there in twenty minutes, and then forty minutes later says she’s here. But oh wait! No. She’s at the wrong train station. By this point I’ve just gone back to mine. She walks to the “right” station and calls me. Oops! Turns out she went the right one to begin with and is now at the wrong one. I tell her to come back to right one. If she actually makes it, I’ve vowed to escalate at ludicrous speed.

At 9:15 she messages to say:

“Hey sorry I broke my heel so now I gotta go home, sorry im a mess.”

“Fine.” Archived.

Daygame really does make you meet everyone. I’ve had my fair share of flakes but never where the girl actually lead me on to believe that she was coming and then never showed.

Yours unfaithfully,

Thomas Crown

    I’ve had that happen multiple times. The worst one was when I waited an additional 50 minutes for the girl, then she showed up with her (fat friend). I left after 30 seconds.
