I was just about to put on my lipstick and leave the office when my date called last night and cancelled. It was 15 minutes before we were to meet and after a week of endless e-mails discussing time and place. He offered no excuse.
Canceling a date with a pre-menopausal single mom on her one free week night is risky. At the last minute, outright dangerous. Fortunately for the guy they don’t allow weapons at the office.
This is not the first time it happened to me and I doubt the last, which is why there needs to be a dating law similar to the policy therapists have about appointments. If you don’t cancel at least 24 hours in advance, you’re required to pay. That will teach ’em.
