17 people share their absolute best 'I got stood up' story.


Making a plan only to realize after an uncomfortably long wait that your date might not show up can be a humiliating and humbling experience...

Luckily, there are internet strangers everywhere to cheer you up. So, when a Reddit user asked, 'What's your best 'I got stood up' story?' victims of flakes were ready to vent.


I just got stood up, and when the barista realized it she gave me my money and a muffin. What's your best 'I got stood up' story?

I planned coffee with a redditor, and showed up at the coffee shop, bought two coffees, and after a half an hour the barista realized that I had gotten stood up, and gave me my $3 back and gave me a muffin. - iamadubstepremix


I got stood up and decided to go to a local electronics store and buy something to cheer myself up. Turned out that they were having a free raffle that day. I won a free Playstation 3 slim. AWWWWWWWW YEAAAAAAAAAAH. - Shikadi314


I was supposed to meet my friend at a nightclub and he didn't show up. I was upset, but I figured I had already paid the cover to get in, so I might as well stay for a while and have a few drinks.

A guy I struck up a random conversation with introduced me to his friend and we really hit it off well. We talked, danced and drank together for the rest of the night. I got her number and we went on a few dates afterwards.

We have since been together for 10 years, married for 6 of them, and just had our first, wonderful baby boy last year. - SteelOwl


I got stood up by a girl who was supposed to have called me. I got pissed off and grabbed a friend to hit up some bars and pool halls. I ran into a girl I knew who dated a different friend. She was with another girl. Me and that girl will be married for 7 years this summer.- [deleted]


I got stood up by a couple of prospective work colleagues. There were three of them, and I was furious that none of them even bothered to call me up and reschedule or something.

I went straight to the nearest internet café (didn't have my laptop with me) and was about to send them an email, basically telling them to take their idea and stuff it. As I sat in front of the computer they called me - turns out I was in the wrong Starbucks. - hugmynd


I got stood up and then my friend took me on a date, we've been dating for 2 & 1/2 years now. - [deleted]


I got stood up by my then girlfriend, who ironically is a barista. When i confronted her she broke up with me. that lead to a confusing summer with much nudity and few morals. it was pretty rad! - BigJamesStud


Once I got stood up at a bar. After a few hours of drinking by myself I got to talking to one of the bartenders. We ended up trying new mixes for drinks and now my drinks are featured on the menu of said bar. - joederpsmith


When I got stood up twice by the same guy in one month last year, not only did I realize he doesn't deserve me, but my mom took me out for pizza and ice cream both times! - [deleted]


Got stood up by a girl in College. We were somewhat friends through church, but I had asked her out on a date and she accepted. Showed up to pick her up and she wasn't home. Went 'oh well' and went and met some buddies for beer.

Fast forward about 4 years later and I'm back in my college town, much better dressed, about 20 pounds of muscle heavier, and significantly more confident. She's working at the dance-hall having never left that town. She starts hitting on me and asks if I still have her number.

I say 'nope, sorry. I deleted it.' Didn't give her an explanation as to why just stared at her. She apparently decided she needed to re-give it to me and told me how she liked the 'new me' and how interested she was in hearing from me.

I took it, looked at it, and said 'I think i'm good, thanks.' and gave it back to her. Felt like a boss. Then felt like a dick. Then said 'screw it' and kept on drinking and dancing with the friends who had met me back in town. - Romoth


I got stood up and went and bought a vibrator instead. Winwin! - laurengrace


My friend stood me up for dinner, so I was sitting at a table all by myself. A really cute guy in the bar right across from the table came over and started a conversation with me.

We ended up dating for a bit, but it really did not go anywhere. The fact that being stood up led to a date with a cute guy was pretty cool, though. - FunGal_in_SoCal


Thursday night. Girl ditched me to watch Jersey Shore. Not the best but my god, it hurt. - joe_shmo123


Sitting in a lounge on a weekday in the afternoon, I was meeting a potential employee so I told the server 'There will be one more, she should be here shortly.' I waited for about a half hour after when she should have met me and thought f*ck it, I'll eat anyway.

Had a few beers, read the paper and went up to pay when the server told me it was on the house, I thanked her and she said 'We're not all like that, I wouldn't have ditched you.'

At first I was just thinking that she was meaning she wouldn't have missed the interview, about an hour later it all clicked and I had to punch a bear to gain back my man card. - jhra


When I was in high school I had planned a movie date with this girl I liked. So I arrive early at the movie theater, buy a pair of tickets and wait. The movie starts, I call her to see if she's coming, get her voicemail.

As I'm about to give up and watch the movie alone, her mom shows up knowing her daughter just stood me up. We watch the movie together, she pays me back for the tickets, and we part ways. My day went from sad, to uncomfortable and sad. - GingerBiologist


Got stood up by a girl at the cinema. Guy at the Ben & Jerry's in the theatre walked up to me and told me that he noticed I had been checking the door and my phone for the past 45 minutes. I told him what had happened and he bought me a ticket to Thor and gave me a free ice cream afterwards. We chatted while he was on his break and he turned out to be a rad guy. - peanutsfan1995


Back in 2000, when the live action Peter Pan movie was in theaters, I was going to see it with a pretty lady, but she said she couldn't go after I had already been close to the theater.

I really wanted to see the movie though, so I went to the theaters alone on a Saturday evening to purchase a ticket. The guy selling tickets was an old chum from high school.

Me: 'One for Peter Pan please'.

Clerk: 'One?'

Me: 'Yep.'

Clerk: ' want one ticket for Peter Pan?'

Me: 'Um... yep.'

Clerk: '...'

Me: '...'

Clerk: ' know what? I'll get your ticket. Have a good time.' And I proceeded to live out the saddest Saturday movie in the history of saturday movies. Though I did enjoy the movie... - snowballman
