It's a lesson one grandpa recently learned. Jim Moroney, who's 73-years-old, met a woman on Match.com, drove 45 minutes to meet her, and was stood up.
His granddaughter, Gabby Foresta, posted Jim's story to Twitter.
"My grandpa got all dressed up for his date, drove 45 minutes away, bought her chocolate and flowers and he got stood up," she wrote on Twitter.
The man even wore his best sweater.
Being stood up isn't rare, especially in online dating, but seems to hurt even more when it happens to a cute grandpa. Twitter was outraged for Jim, and is calling for justice.
Most of them just want to "talk" to this woman.
But some are just having so. Many. Feelings.
After all, we can relate. But Jim isn't giving up, and neither should we.
“You know what, this is the way the dating scene is,” he told BuzzFeed. “I hope that I find someone truthful, loving, and that has compassion. I’m looking for that special woman.”
