I experienced my first ever 'stand up' last week I was supposed to meet a boy who I had met before so I was defiantly not expecting to be left waiting for 2 hours.
We had been planning to meet up for a couple of weeks and when the day came we text the whole morning. We had agreed to meet at half 12 in town.
I got off the bus and walked to where we were going to meet he wasn't there but I thought 'oh he will only be a couple of minutes late' so I waited for 10 minutes before I text him asking what time he would be here but after half an hour I hadn't got a reply.
I then text again asking when he would be here but still no reply.
I sat in town for 2 hours on my own convinced that he would turn up but finally I gave in and got the bus home.
I could not stop crying that night I felt like I wasn't good enough for him or he was too embarrassed to be seen with me.
The worst thing is I can't be sure that him and his friends weren't say somewhere watching me and laughing at how stupid I could be for waiting that long.
Almost a week later I still haven't got a reply but luckily I've found someone else who actually will turn up when we agree to see each other but I know if I hadn't found the other person I would still cry about being stood up and I wouldn't be able to move on for ages.
Hopefully I won't have an awkward 'bump into' with the boy and hopefully I won't have to see him again.
