THE reason dating apps exists is so that people can get to know each other and pursue relationships.
That’s not quite possible if people choose to cancel dates at the last minute instead of showing up on time.

TikToker and online dater Beth posted a screenshot of the text exchange she recently had with a man.
They arranged plans for a date, but they never actually ended up meeting in person.
She starts her video by saying: “[Here’s] what it’s like to date in your 30s.”
The thread starts with him asking: “What about dinner at 7 at Boqueria?”
Boqueria is a Spanish restaurant and tapas bar in New York City.
Beth wrote back: “Great!”
He replied: “Awesome, I’ll see you there.”
“Can’t wait!” she texted back.
At 6:53pm, seven short minutes before their date was supposed to happen, he threw her a curveball.
He asked: “Can we reschedule?
“I’ve been out drinking with the boys all day and thought I would make it, but I can’t.”
Beth seemingly didn’t respond to his last-minute cancelation at all.
The on-screen text block on her video jokingly says: “He’s a 10, but he cancels when you’re already on your way to dinner.”

She tells her viewers: “Listen, I’m all for a reschedule. I’m the queen of rescheduling. But seven minutes before?
“The bar is so low for men, I’m just looking for someone to show up.”
Her comment section is filled with people who are shocked by the behavior of the man she was texting.
One woman said: “I’ll be 25 next week and it’s not any better… so it gets WORSE?”
“Who goes out drinking before their first date? Was he planning on showing up drunk?” someone else questioned.
A third user wrote: “Not even a good lie? He really thought drinking with the boys was a good enough excuse.”
“I’d never respond again… ever. Not even to his ‘out drinking with the boys’ text. My 14-year-old son is more mature,” one mom claimed.
Someone else said: “Seven minutes before the date starts?! Absolutely not.”
