This is Jim. This sweet, romantic 73-year-oldgrandpa got stood up by a Match.com date on Saturday.

Now people on the internet are sharing their support for him.

Jim's granddaughter, Gabby, tweeted a pictures of her grandfather, a dapper-looking dude who'd driven to a restaurant 45 minutes from his home only to be left waiting. He even bought chocolate and roses (candy and flowers! So chivalrous) for this woman who never showed up. Just goes to show that maturity doesn't necessarily come with age, because come on, lady—NOT COOL.

Gabby's tweet went viral, and people who saw it seemed just as outraged at the him being stood up as she was.

Some people felt bad, but gave the woman the benefit of the doubt.

Still others tried to set him up or said that they'd just date him themselves.

Speaking to Metro, Gabby said:

My grandpa and I are very close and we talk about dating quite a lot since he’s been looking for a companion for a while now. My grandpa was really sad considering he has never been stood up before, so he immediately came over to my house to talk to me and my mom about it. We instantly comforted him because being stood up can be very hurtful.

Apparently Gabby's grandfather never heard from the date-to-be again.

But don't worry, the right one is out there for him somewhere!
