Today, I was stood up by a blind date. After calling and texting her about being a horrible person, she called me from the hospital. She was in a car accident. FML

Your "Blind" date had a car accident? No shit.

It could have been worse. She could actually have just stood you up.

No, of that had happened, she would have been the jerk, not him.

Could have excuse like "Sorry wrong sent" followed by "What happen?! Are you okay?"

I once went on a blind date with Megan fox, the date turned into us being chased by robotic toasters and waffle makers. thankfully we both had revealing clothes to keep people interested in the sub par plot... best first date ever!

Ah Marinus always looks on the bright side of things.

Haha, so true! Seriously thought dude just apologise she'll probably understand. How were you to know

43-- Judging from your picture, you obviously don't. Here, have an orange

Well you didn't know but I'd go find out which hospital she's in and go visit her bring her something nice

@46 some people simply dont like those who will berate them for an action they didnt do before finding out answers in the first place. personally, if i were her id ditch that idiot asap. itll mean avoiding someone who acts on impulse first, and asks questions later.

Why was she driving if she's blind??

Bombthreat, why are you typing if you're stupid?

Flutist, why are you on this site if you can't take a joke?

Gorina, why are you on here if you can't tell sarcasm?

Gorina, I don't think that was a joke. Flutist, I don't think you know what sarcasm is.

Lol really sucks for him then.

we all no wat assume means... makes an ass of u and me or in this case just you.

To be honest, as much as it does seem harsh on OP's side, he's not going to presume that the reason she hasn't shown is because of a car accident Don't pretend otherwise, 99% of you would also presume you had been stood up, and I'll be the first to raise my hand, I would presume that too

well be a gentleman and send her some flowers that'll help her see how nice of a guy you are when she recovers

I've noticed by your comments you respect women, and believe they have rights.. I'm not sure what to say from there..

I know: You look like a monkey!

orrr he could just go visit the women there

he's probably blown it with her. She'd have to be pretty desperate to give him a second chance. it was also a blind date so that would be a pretty bold move which could also come off as desperate.

Thats sweet! Good response! :D

As nice as it sounds, I wouldn't date someone I didn't know who felt the way to treat someone is to yell at them first. In reality, it would be great to send her flowers as an apology but there is no way to prove he is a "nice guy" because he isn't. Nice guys tend to think the best of people and Op showed he is immature. I wouldn't date the guy who called me a horrible person and felt his "blind date" was more important than the safety of someone else. If someone doesn't show up to a planned date I usually assume something bad or important has happened. But Op obviously believes he is so important he gets to belittle people.

28 yea you're right i do respect women unless they'r conniving bitches who don't deserve respect. For example of this woman somehow was lying to OP and was just at home watching glee, then yes she's a major bitch but OP can take the opportunity from this make the situation better but it's all up to him

Who looks like a monkey? ...

*shakes head at 90*

Why shake your head?

Haha, only in the movies. And in your life!

this is like Just Like Heaven!

Wow,real ladies man. Nice class

how was he to know she was in an accident?

Well you didn't have to call her a horrible person...you could've simply asked her why she didn't show. Now you're the horrible person and a jerk.

meh is also a word to be like whatever... so stop trying to correct everyone and actually think it over.

By asking instead of responding like an insulted child.

could you not have just called her and NOT made assumptions? you're a douche. fuck HER life.

Show it anyway

ya know know when I am sitting in my car swerving and gliding around getting fucked up in the process with the possibility of a near death experience happening right before me the first thing I think is…geez I should really call my blind date to cancel

Just letting you know, it's quite hard to call someone when you're dying at an accelerated rate.

She was in a car accident and ended up in the HOSPITAL. I think she deserves some slack!

she was in the hospital........... enough said..........

"Hey, sorry I couldn't make the date, I'm in the back of the ambulance with a broken shoulder." Yeah, I'm sure that was her first concern

Your "Blind" date had a car accident? No shit.

At least it was a blind date and you didn't know her before this all happened.

Think before you text.

The thought of the date being in an accident is not a common thought when they are stood up.

Well, yes but any number of things could've happened. Unless I had seen the person out somewhere, online, etc. my first thought wouldn't be that I got stood up. It would be to text or call to make sure they're not lost, stuck in traffic, or had something come up unexpectantly.

I'm with 10 on this one. A simple "Hi. Are we still on?" would have sufficed.

@11 no, but "my grandfather died" "i was called in for work and completely forgot to call" "im on my way, just got stuck in traffic" "my dog was hit by a car" "i fell asleep and didnt hear my alarm" "im at the same restaurant across town" "my house was on fire" "i got a flat tire" "i ate some dodgy chinese food" among others are all acceptable answers for being late for/missing an engagement. only an idiot would go nuts at someone they dont even know for being late before either attempting to clarify whats going on or making sure the person is ignoring them on purpose.

@11, I have had the same thing happen where someone stood me up. But I was understanding when he texted me to tell me why he was late. It was rather sad actually, he said "I was at the same restaurant across town. I realized my mistake but I fell asleep at the wheel and hit a guy walking his dog, turns out it was my long lost grandfather. I'm on my way but the cops know my car so I might have to lose them. To throw them off I lit a few houses on fire. I think I might be sick... not from guilt but because I ate some dodgy Chinese food." I still visit him in prison. :)

Words to live by.

@83 and how i cherish the contact with the outside world from behind these iron bars my love.

Never assume anything before you blow up on somebody!!! Or you will just make yourself look like an ass.
