There is nothing worse than getting stood up. It's one of the most hurtful and humiliating aspects of dating. came up with a list of the five stages you need to go through if you're stood up.


1) Acceptance: Don't make excuses. They stood you up, plain and simple. Accept it so you can move on.

2) Embarrassment: You've accepted it now you have to deal with the humiliation. It's not easy, but you have to embrace the embarrassment so you can let it go. Try making fun of it and cracking a smile.

3) Anger: Sure you're upset, but lashing out won't change a thing and in the end will probably make you feel worse.

4) Moving On: One jerk stood you up forget about them and get on the next one.

5) Why Me?: It's human nature to want to analyze why this happened. But, really, who cares? The important thing to realize is that you're lucky to be a rid of someone who would do something like that. And now you know how it feels and would never do that to someone.
