I’m back on the dating trail and encountered a first – I was stood up for a lunch date. I can sum up this experience in three words: awkward and humbling. I always do my best to treat others how I’d like to be treated and have never flaked on someone without giving notice.
I had two options: freak out and never date again. Or, embrace it and move on. I chose the latter. And to my elation, I ended up going out with someone else that night, and, he showed up!
We’re all going to face rejection at times in relationships, job interviews, house hunting and more. You can’t give up. Embrace it. Learn from it, and move on! Another relationship, job or house that’s a perfect fit for you will show up.
