Woman Warned Of 'Red Flags' After Date Cancels To Watch Football Game

A woman has asked for advice after her date cancelled on her in favour of the footie.

The Reddit user, who remained anonymous on the platform, said she was disappointed when the first man she'd gone on a date with in over three years cancelled their second meeting because his team were playing, and he wanted to watch.

"[My date] and I are both in our 30s (I’m 30, and he’s 32) and we had a decent first date," she said.

"He was a gentleman and he took me to a nice restaurant and we had a good time. After the date ended he continued to be a gentleman, didn’t try anything weird and didn’t even try to kiss me (I’m one of those who actually needs to like you before I kiss you) and so we planned a second date for tomorrow (Thursday).

"I told him when we planned this that it would be difficult for me because I had to change my work schedule around to leave earlier on Thursday and work later on Friday.

"So I moved a few work things around (which was difficult) and we ended up planning for Thursday."

Speaking on Wednesday, ahead of their date, the Reddit user continued: "I texted him last night to confirm our date... he cancelled on me to watch a preseason football game (American football) of the Patriots and Eagles playing."

She added: "I had made it adamantly clear to him before that I don’t like having my time wasted. And making plans and commitments are very important to me - almost sacred.

"I would never cancel on someone unless it was actually an emergency or something genuinely came up.

"But Mr. SIR over here straight up told me that he wanted to reschedule because his team was playing and he wanted to watch.."

She concluded: "Should I even continue with whatever this is at this point and give him a second chance? I’m honestly really p***ed off.

"Please give me some guidance cause I’m trying to hone it in and I just can’t fathom the stupidity."

In response, it's safe to say people had a lot of thoughts and feelings.

"I'm usually that guy on here saying not a huge deal give the guy a chance but this one is extra special. That is one dumbf*ck reason," one person wrote. "Especially given that there are any number of ways to watch that game later."

They added: "I personally would be very disinterested at that point and he sounds like kind of a douche."

While another agreed: "That game had been scheduled for long before you made plans. Doubtful he didn't know it. Even if he forgot, do you want a guy who chooses football over you this early in a relationship?

"He is communicating his priorities. Are you listening?"

"People make time for other people when they’re important enough. Especially in the dating realm. Next please….," wrote a third.

"I'm gonna get flack for this but being a hardcore sports fan is an INSTANT red flag for me," said a fourth. "I have zero idea why we give anything to do with sports such a free pass. I genuinely do not understand it."

A fellow Redditor advised: "Don’t ever move your work schedule around for a second date. He’s still a stranger and it’s not that serious. But now you know for the future".

You got that hun? If he cancels last minute for the footie, he isn't worth it.
