Dating is complicated. Sometimes people are jerks and instead of being honest and truthful, they lie. They don’t always lie because they’re trying to hurt you – most of the time they lie because they don’t want to hurt you. This especially comes into play when a crush makes plans with you and then blows you off.
Ugh. When it comes to dating, what could be worse than having a date blow you off at the last second? Um, very few things. A lot of the time, guys will give you excuses as to why they can’t hang out instead of just saying “I don’t want to hang out” because they’re afraid to say that. I won’t be a hypocrite – I’ve used all of these excuses at least once. I know it’s horrible, I’m sorry! Anyway, while these reasons are sometimes legit, a lot of the time they’re just a lame excuse. Here are 7 excuses guys will give you when they’re blowing you off. Beware!
I'm So Busy With Work/School/Etc.I've said it before and I'll say it again: if a guy has a crush on you and wants to be with you, he will very rarely be too busy for you. Especially if he made plans with you! Think twice if he cancels plans because he's too busy. Unless he is legitimately stuck at work, I bet he's giving you an excuse. It's just vague enough to mean basically anything, which is always suspicious. Source: ShutterStock
I Have So Much HomeworkWhat guy is going to cancel on a date he's really excited about because he would rather do homework? Let's be real, guys. Even if he has a super smartypants, he would get that stuff done with plenty of time left for a date. Source: ShutterStock
I Totally Forgot I Made Plans With My FriendsIf a dude is going to go on a date with a girl he likes and potentially get some hookup action, he's going to choose that date over his friends (unless it's a legit obligation or you guys have been dating for a long time). It's basically a fact. And how did he forget but conveniently remember right before your date? Okay. Source: ShutterStock
I Have A Family ObligationBlaming stuff on family obligations is so easy, which is why it make such a great excuse. You can't exactly call them out on lying and you can't be a brat about it, because it's his family. Plus, you'll probably never know if it's really his grandma's 75th birthday or not.

Oh, My Phone Died/Is BrokenThis excuse happens when you have a date with a guy and he just ignores all of your texts and phone calls until afterwards when he's like, "OMG my phone died/broke/got lost and I tried to get in touch but I couldn't!" and you're just so relieved to hear that he wasn't ignoring you that you believe it. Except he probably was ignoring you because there are other ways he could get in touch with you. Right after I met my current BF, his phone died during a day we had made plans to hang. He borrowed his friend's phone to log onto Facebook and message me that his phone had died but we were still on and what time I could meet him. So, yeah. There are other ways. Source: ShutterStock
I'm SickTelling someone you're sick to get out of something is so easy because it's basically foolproof. You can't argue with someone that they're not sick. You're not going to tell them to come out anyway because ew. And, on top of all that, you're going to feel bad for the person! I mean, sure, everyone gets sick, but if your crush seemed fine up until a few hours before the date and he's been acting shady - bad sign. Source: ShutterStock
I'm Sooooo TiredIf a dude likes you, he will never be too tired to go out on a date with you. NEVER. And if he is too tired to go out, he'll invite you over for a movie. Source: ShutterStock
