So the other night, I orchestrated a last-minute date on Tinder.
It was quite late on a Sunday, and we arranged to meet at a bar in between our apartments in Manhattan.
I walked in, sat down, ordered a beer and waited.
Dang. Stood up. I'd never been stood up. No phone call. No nothing.

I didn't really seize the opportunity.

As for the guy, well...
He doesn't want to make amends, he apologised, I accepted it and that's it. I hope he finds what he wants in life https://t.co/0SAy2iJGin — Mimi Black (@AymieBlack) July 17, 2016
