Often on this blog I yap about my Millionaire Matchmaking Hero, Patti. In a way, I’m like Patti. Except I don’t live in LA, and I don’t fix up my rich friends-seeing I don’t have any rich friends. But, I do love to play matchmaker.
This week my latest couple was scheduled to go out. It was a simple get-to-know-you coffee date. I was so excited for these two individuals to meet each other. The girl is a great friend of mine, and the guy is, Guy #1. You remember Guy #1? He was part of the whole YOY. He was one of the guys who asked me out, but then decided not to TAKE ME OUT! Ring a bell? Anyway, Guy #1 and I have remand friends despite our rocky start. I was certain him and my great friend would get along.
Ok, so now let’s fast forward to the big day- the day of their get-to-know-you coffee date. Mid-morning I receive an email from Guy #1. He decided he’s too busy for a simple coffee date, and wants cancel. I can’t stop Guy #1 from canceling, so I suggest if he’s going to cancel he should do it very soon, which he does. As you can imagine, this whole thing does not set well with me. Even though Guy #1 did reschedule with my great friend, it still annoyed me that he canceled so last minute. To be perfectly honest, I was border line pissed at Guy #1. I thought it was a pretty jerky thing to do. The following reasons are why I was mad:
*Both individuals agreed on the day they would meet, that means Guy #1 agreed.
*They planned the coffee date one week in advance.
*He had all weekend to get organized so he was free for the date.
*It just pissed me off!
Later that night, I was telling Sister #1 the saga of Guy #1 and my great friend. She agreed it was a jerky thing to do, and suggested I kick him out of my matchmaking club. I don’t have a club, but Patti calls her business a club. After much thought, or not much thought at all, I realized I couldn’t agree more with Sister #1. So Guy #1, you are now officially kicked out of my matchmaking club. Please, do not let the door hit you on the way out.
