A General Question.

So, the 20 questions thing, and the 3 questions thing are both doing the rounds and, I admit because it is here to see, I have also taken part in the latter.

Now I want to throw it out in the other direction with a question for anyone who chances upon this post - as unlikely as that may seem - and is prepared to accept the (easy) challenge.

You've met someone through the Internet - probably AdultFriendFinder, but perhaps somewhere else - chatted with them by IM, or mailed or chatted in one of the groups. Your chatting has progressed to a few telephone calls and you're getting on fine. Both of you have similar interests and desires and your interest in this second person has been awakened; so much so that you accept a proposal to meet.

On the day of your planned meeting - or date, if you wish - you make sure everything is perfect; appearance, mood, travel arrangements, petty cash for a few sort ones. You've already sifted a few thoughts out for things to talk about and how to break the ice.

You arrive at the rendezvous on time - perhaps a few minutes early - seat yourself and wait. The other person doesn't show.

How do you feel? Not how do you react, but, inside, how do you feel?

It hasn't happened, yet... but I'd be hurt, embarassed and even a little angry, especially if the other person didn't even give me the courtesy of a call to let me know they wouldn't be able to keep the date. Unlikely they'd get a second chance - it would require a real good excuse for the first faux pas.

It would be my good fortune, you would assume, if I were to also to say I have never been stood up. In fact it would just say I have never met someone face to face thru AdultFriendFinder. That said.....I would be disappointed....and probably a bit miffed unless they had a very good reason for not showing up.

It happened to me a few times when I was a member of a service outside of A-F-F. In both cases, it was total crap. I consider myself a pretty confident man in every sense of the word, but I couldn't help but feel utterly rejected. Hung out to dry. Heck, I let one women set me up for a letdown TWICE, and can you believe she actually called me two days later and thought that I was actually dumb enough to attempt a THIRD meeting?

Made me think of Charlie Brown and Lucy when she kept swiping the ball away just before he tried to kick it.

Let me drive. I like the view

First,I would be disappointed in myself for misjudging someone I thought I had come to know and on a personal level I would feel hurt. Next, I would be thankful that I had discovered something new about this person and chalk it up to experience. Wisdom often comes from experience, both good ones and bad ones. In the end I would celebrate for being that much wiser.
