I had back up plans - just in case I needed them.
And as I anticipated, I needed them.
I got stood up tonight.
The plans hadn't been set in stone, but the date (as in the day) had been established - the 8th.
But by 8 pm, as I was finishing up a Chinese food dinner with a friend, I still hadn't heard from him. That's when I finally acknowledged what I already knew to be true - he's just not that into me. He wasn't going to call.
But after tonight, I'm thinking should get stood up more often, because I had a really great time this evening.
My friend Melissa and I ventured into Manhattan and made some new friends along the way...
