Stood up......again.Page 1 of 1    
I don't understand. I go through the motions, as I suspect most people do. We exchange a few messages through POF, then we talk on the phone and then we set up a first date/meeting. Then, they don't show up. Why? The only explinations I get are that there must have been a missunderstanding, "I thought you were going to call me" or "something came up I'm sorry" But these are always messages through POF, never text, never a phone call!!
I decided to take my picture off of POF today, just to see what happens. I'm pretty sure I know what's going to happen, no mail/male So, what's the deal, I just don't get it!?
Now during these phone conversations there's always a lot of talk about life, the ex's and everything. So could they be married? Maybe. But what about the other ones? This is taxing on me nerves (yes I said me)
Any insight? Also, before it's asked, I'll answer, NO. I don't give second chances. If you have my number, use it, right? You don't leave someone sitting there.

Maybe I will have to wave good bye in a month. But I tried the "here's my picture, here's me" and that's not working, somethings got to give.

Well Grumpy ........ grumpy ...... humm ....... grumpy

I gotta ask ....... did you also change your user name today ...... you know when you put that rant in your profile.


I don't think being grumpy and rants in your profile will make things any better ...... do you?

lostgirl71 ~ I'm sorry for your loss.
I always get the explination as I stated "I thought you were going to call, something came up" Whatever. I never do the follow up call when I'm stood up. I just wait for the explination. So I don't yell at anyone, and I don't make assumptions because the truth of the matter is that I don't know why they didn't show.

I'm not narrow minded, no need for insults eh! Did you come here to bash, or advise?

Seeing as you asked, I removed my picture because I'd like to try things a different way.

OMG, people..........I didn't post the question to get pissed on! I asked a question, so if you don't have the answer....what are you doing exactly, over attacking me?
