#1– Don’t Get Angry
Emergencies happen. Things can take longer to wrap up than anticipated. You can get stuck in traffic. All of these things can happen to your date. If you don’t hear from your them, call and see if everything is okay. If they don’t answer, avoid panic or frustration. Leave a message voicing your concern, and ask them to call you back. Then find something fun to do until they return your call.
#2– Avoid Mind Games
If someone has hurt you don’t give them the silent treatment or avoid the topic. Directly communicate your hurt or disappointment in your spoiled plans. Avoid speaking out of anger or bitterness. Also, avoid playing mind games with yourself. When you’re stood up, don’t create scenarios or accusations. Don’t jump to conclusions when you don’t have any facts.
#3– Let It Go
Sometimes even the most dependable of people forget what day it is. If you’re upset, take some time to cool off, communicate your frustration, and simply reschedule the event. It’s not worth holding on to.
