Maybe I’m old fashioned, but I’d never NOT show up for an event I said I was going to without calling and letting the host know I wouldn’t be there. You just don’t do that to people, it is just not cool.
You just don’t put another human-being in a position where she is worrying and wondering where you are or what happened to you. I find that behavior inconsiderate. And in the olden days, this was called standing someone up. Had I been single and if this was a guy who did it to me, I’d be very hurt and chalk it up to “maybe he’s just not that into you.”
Well, maybe my friend was “just not that into me.”
Good-bye ex-friend. I thought I liked you.
