3 Best Texts To Send When Your Date Cancels On You

Getting ready for a date takes so much time and mental preparation. Some of us even get our hair and nails done before the date simply because we want to look our best.

Nobody told us though, that dating could be disappointing sometimes, especially when your date cancels on you.

“Sorry, have to cancel,” is probably the worst text or phone call before a date. However, responding kindly to the cancellation may help you snag this date a second ’round. Really! Here are the 3 best texts to send when your date cancels on you/

1. “Thank you for letting me know.”

It can be pretty damn disappointing when your date fails to follow through, but you’ll never know what issues they’re really facing. In the midst of the ghosting culture, it’s nice to have someone actually be honest with you and inform you that he’s cancelling the date. Thank him for actually making the effort instead of making you wait at a restaurant, alone. It leaves things on a good note so you can pick up where you left off.

2. “I understand. Let me know when you’re available to reschedule.”

If you still want to meet your date in the future, let him know. Simply let your date know that you’d like to reschedule and leave it at that. Don’t think about why your date cancelled, he could have had something going on. Give him some time to get back to you. If he doesn’t, maybe it’s time to move on the find another date. Who knows, maybe he could be breadcrumbing. If he’s interested, he will reschedule.

3. “I wouldn’t cancel on me!” (Okay, we’re kidding, but show yourself some love too!)

You know you need a date with yourself or a night out with your best girlfriends, especially if you were really looking forward to the cancelled date. It’s easy to beat yourself up and let your self-esteem plummet to non-existence, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Your date cancelling on you has nothing to do with your value or self-worth. You’re the only person who can validate yourself, and sometimes, that’s all you need, really.
