This or That: Stood Up or Nightmare Blind Date?

Recently you’ve been trying out some new ways to meet guys, so you've decide to let a friend set you up on a date with someone from her office. You’re nervous about going on a blind date, but your friend has assured you that it’ll be a perfect match. Regardless, the night of the date, you’re feeling pretty insecure and worried. Would if be worse if . . .

This: You wait almost an hour completely dressed, made-up, and ready to go, but he never shows? You feel completely hurt and humiliated that he didn’t even have the decency to call you.

Or. . .

That: He takes you to a great place, acts like a complete gentleman, but then proceeds to talk about himself the entire night? He's perfect on paper, but he can’t even slow down long enough to get the most basic information out of you.

being annoyed is much better than being stood up and bored. lol. atleast then i'd get to dump a guy. but if i get stood up, i got dumped. and no ones ever dumped be so thats a bad impression

I'd rather be stood up. I prefer the company of "me, myself and I" far, far more than I would a jerk. I'd rather not waste my time in an evening with a nightmare blind date,

I'd rather be stood up, than spend the evening with a nightmare date. If the guy is a no show AND did not call, I would give up in half an hour. I would change my clothes, and relax for the rest of evening. I would still end up having a nice evening. If he showed up eventually, I would decline to go out with him due to his rudeness. JMHO.

it would be way worse to be stood up, nobody likes waiting around all dolled up.

I'm really sensitive, so being stood up would not be a good thing for me. I'd rather be annoyed all night than alone..then I can just make the decision to not see him again, rather than knowing he didn't come to see me.

I'd rather know that he's not perfect than not know at all. I'd never want to be stood up for a date even a blind one.

I'd rather go on the date. I think he could be nervous and only talking about himself is easier and you don't get to think about your nervousness. Either way the date is better than sitting home all dressed up.

I'd rather go on a bad date. At least I get to go out to eat!

I have been stood up. I didn't really care as much since I didn't know the guy. I think it would be worst to be with the guy who is full of himself. I can't stand guys like that. hehe.

I'd much rather go on a bad date then be stood up. At least with the bad date you have a funny story to tell your friends the next day. It is humiliating and depressing to be stood up, especially by someone you've never even met before... and it's a waste of a hot outfit. Stuff like this is why when I was dating, I would only take dates during the week. Then if they were awful, I would say I had to get home to bed or if they stood me up, I could just cuddle on the couch til bed time instead of wasting a whole saturday night!

Being stood up really, really sucks.

Even though they stood you up, its much better because you didn't waste half as much time getting to know the loser. Call it automatic weeding. It sucks for the first hour, but then after a few margaritas and a night out with the ladies, you'll be back to your old self again. Arrogance, on the other hand, just will continue to marinate in your brain every time you think about that asshole your friend set you up with. You'd be upset with your friend for thinking he was a nice guy.
