STOOD UP

On Sunday I had a date with a woman at 11:30 am for brunch. I'm not a real big fan of "brunch" because it's a bit too trendy for me. A bagel with cream cheese is more than enough for me on a Sunday, or any day for that matter, but the psycho in question decided that's what she wanted. So I'm sitting there ON TIME at 11:30 am waiting for her at the designated meeting place, when my phone rings. "Sorry," she says, with an Israeli accent so thick I thought I was sitting in a cafe in Tel Aviv, instead of the Upper East Side, "My friend has sahm-sing and vee vill hev to delay owver meeting."

"Your friend has sahm-sing?," I thought. "What about the date YOU asked me on? Is that not sahm-sing?...You know, the one I'm sitting here waiting for you for at 11:30 on a Sunday morning in 97 degree heat?" Of course, being the pushover that I am, I said, "Call me when you're done with your friend. If I'm still available, we'll get together." Of course, she never called. Apparently, her friend's "sahm-sing" was too important to warrant a courtesy call to apologize. I thought maybe the friend had some serious medical problem to which this chick was attending, but it wasn't serious enough to prevent this tactless specimen from logging on to Jdate a few short hours later. Maybe she was sitting in the ICU with her laptop trolling for guys, while the friend teetering on the brink of death, motioned for her to click on profiles, with the last ounce of strength she could muster. "Yes," I could hear her friend mutter, "you should should stand him up too....do it for me, if it's the last thing you do."

Anyway, I think this may be the straw that broke Jdate's back for me. I think I'm officially J-DONE!

Rude, rude bitch. At least email with some excuse...it's the easiest thing in the world.

These are the kind of chicks that call a week later like they did nothing wrong. If that happens, hit the "ignore" button on your phone.

sahm-sing tells me she'll be single for a while w/ that behavior.

How do you say inconsiderate a-hole in Hebrew?

Simon said...

I think the word is "douchebag." It's universal.

Hey, it could always be worse. At least she called. I've been stood up before with no call, no explanation, as if the guy vanished off the face of the earth.

(The word verification is very funny today: ickbj!)

She deserves a punch to the babymaker.
Maybe you should give Craigslist a shot?

I can’t help it Marc F, but I really enjoy reading your blogg.

I don’t know you and I have no idea how much of your blogging material that is true, but it sure is fun reading for a single woman in her upper twenties.

If I were on JDate I would probably end up as a post here. Keep it up and good luck with your serch!

On behalf of my countrymen/women, let me apologize for that chick's disgusting behavior and assure you that many of us Israelis are quite lovely.

Similarly, there are many cool girls on JDate, it just requires a ton of tenacity to find them. But you should consider match.com (You can filter for Jews). After a depressing stint on JDate, I got tons of love on match and it restored my faith in myself and online dating. At least for now.
