An actively dating male reader shared an interesting pattern. He says that the few times he had to cancel a date on a short notice recently for a very good reason and tried to reschedule, the girls would not give it a second chance. This is even though he would call them, apologize and ask to reschedule very nicely. He wonder why and wants me to provide a few thoughts.
This is a tough question. I suppose this unforgiving approach somehow ties into (a) entitlement and big ego – i.e. “no one cancels on me..” or (b) major emotional bruise from a recent dating past and being treated like shit by different guys, which translates into a low / no tolerance or anything that remotely resembles similar future mistreatment. Or, it’s a combination of both of the above.
