We all know the stage of dating. During multiple dates, you have to get to know each other better. In the beginning, they are still fascinating, and you can look forward to them.
Still, when you start to like someone, the more you’ve had, the more you’ll look forward to it. It can be a big downer if someone suddenly cancels for no reason.
What should you do if the other person cancels the date?
If someone cancels a date at the last minute for no reason, it can feel not very pleasant. You might have been really into it, so this can feel like a downer. Your thoughts are probably also suddenly going in all directions, and it isn’t easy to understand. There are some very important things to do if the other person cancels the date.
Don’t take it personally
It’s not surprising if the first thing that comes to mind is: ‘Is it just me?’ It would help if you got rid of this thought as soon as possible. Make sure you don’t take it personally because it probably has nothing to do with you as a person at all.
And if it is, it’s not worth it. Then someone will automatically come your way who will accept you as you are.
Don’t overthink about it
This goes along with point one but deserves its explanation. Try to remember that you don’t know why she/he cancelled at all. Something serious with family or some other emergency may just have intervened.
It has nothing further to do with you, and he/she is probably just open to a new appointment. So stop overthinking.
Accept that is annoying
Of course, ‘stop thinking and don’t take it all so personally’ sounds very easy, but of course, it is not. You certainly don’t have to ignore your feelings, and it’s okay to feel bad or bummed about it not happening.
Go on with your life
This sounds a bit short-sighted, but we want to say that you don’t get the annoying feeling. Resolve yourself to do something else fun. Have something to eat or drink with a friend, so that you can’t eat yourself at the time of that date.
Furthermore, it is also important to start the conversation later to find out why he/she cancelled that date. Then you will see that all the thinking, which of course, you have done a bit, has probably just been for nothing.
