Relief

Filed under: Dating,Personal — by teofilo @ 8:45 pm

So I had a date planned for this afternoon with this girl, but the day after I talked to her I realized that I had already told my mom I would go to something with her at the same time, so I called the girl to try to reschedule but I couldn’t get through to her and ended up just leaving several messages explaining the situation and proposing an alternate time.  I went to the place at the new time and waited for a while, but she didn’t show up.  I was very concerned that I had somehow screwed the whole thing up, since the scheduling snafu was entirely my fault, and this evening I called her again and left yet another message apologizing for the mess and asking her to call me back if she could.

She called back a few minutes ago and explained that there had been a big blowup between her and her mom yesterday that continued into today, so she hadn’t been in any state to see me.  She was very apologetic and we rescheduled the date for next Sunday.  She apparently did get my messages, so it’s not entirely clear to me why she didn’t at least call me back to explain what was going on, but at least it all seems to have worked out in the end.  I’m very relieved.

  1. She apparently did get my messages, so it’s not entirely clear to me why she didn’t at least call me back to explain what was going on,

    If she felt like she was in no state to see you, she may very well have not been in any state to call, either. Having been the tiniest little bit emotional on occasion myself, I can very readily imagine this poor woman being in quite a state, thinking she should call, feeling like she just can’t handle calling, feeling guilty about not calling, and getting just a little paralyzed by the whole thing.

    It can be a bit daunting to find yourself in an emotional state while trying to navigate a new, not yet vulnerable relationship.

    Like you said, it seems to have worked out in the end. I wouldn’t let yourself get at all caught up in worrying about why she didn’t call right away to explain.

  2. Yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what happened, and I’m not too concerned about it.

  3. I did that once to a date. Cute guy, we’d been out a few months before, completely stood him up because my mom freaked out, managed a babbled apology the next day. Couldn’t face calling him that night to explain.

  4. Thanks, Cala. That’s reassuring.
