I scheduled a coffee date for 1 PM with someone on Bumble thursday. We arranged this through the app that is dating night before around midnight, closing with, “I’ll see you then! ” The day of the date, when I was at the gym and couldn’t reply, I got a, “Still on for 1:00? ” text at 11 AM on Thursday. Hadn’t we simply confirmed significantly less than 12 hours ago? Had I perhaps maybe not responded at noon saying he not have shown up that it did, in fact, still work, would?
An additional example, We scheduled a romantic date for the Thursday night. We confirmed the date, like the some time location, on Monday night. On evening, We received a text asking, “Still interested in conference tomorrow night? Wednesday” Didn’t we already proceed through this? I guess I get sick and tired of other people’s propensity to bail (or flake or anything you desire to phone it) being projected onto future dates… in this situation, me personally. Might be even even worse, yes, but is also better.
I supply the advice to my customers to use the “confident confirmation” of “Looking ahead to seeing you tomorrow” vs. The poor “Are we nevertheless on? ” In speaking with both male customers (since We generally suggest the person confirms every single day ahead of the date) and friends, i am aware that many just take this “weak” approach as they are afraid that then their date will not show up if they say, “Looking forward to seeing you, ” and don’t get a response. Let’s stop the madness!!
I recognize that I’m somehow now within the minority of people that try not to cancel plans. (más…)
