POSSIBLE REASONS THIS GUY FROM HINGE FLAKED ON ME LAST NIGHT

Background: we matched on Hinge last week, had some A+ banter, he asked me out for last night, confirmed the date Sunday, I asked what time, never heard another peep, no response, NADA!
  1. 1.
    The five hour delay between when he texted me to confirm and I texted him back spooked him too much to go forward with the date
    Sunday at 5:42 pm he texted "Still on for tmrw night?" and I saw it but was on my way out the door and forgot to respond until I eventually got home much later, at 10:41pm, and said "hi! Yes, still on for tomorrow night, I'm excited, what time you thinking?" Then nothing... I text him at 4pm day of the planned date, "I'm free anytime after 7 if we're still on!", just in case... Was the fact that I waited five hours to confirm the date the reason it didn't happen? That's insane though, right?

    He lost his phone
    Shit happens
  3. 3.
    He was abducted by aliens and/or scientologists
  4. 4.
    He's a bot
    Probably not but I like that in this internet day and age we can just write things off as "bots" and be like whatevs let's move onto the next one SWIPE RIGHT!
  5. 5.
    I'm a bot?
    How do "bots" work?
  6. 6.
    He pretty much just chickened out.
    Online dating is easier said than done
  7. 7.
    He met someone else
    Between 6 and 11pm on a Sunday. You never know!!!!
  8. 8.
    He cycled through our entire relationship in his head -- first fight, falling in love, moving in together, a called-off engagement because I didn't want to live anyplace that wasn't Santa Monica or Venice, visitation schedule for our together-dog -- so then why the need to go on the date?
    Or wait, is this something only girls do? Everyone is crazy, right?
  9. 9.
    He died?
    I mean, that would be TERRIBLE, but feels like a real possibility!!!!
  10. 10.
    Something else crazy like he got run over by the Oscar Meyer Weiner Truck or something?
    Anyone got any ideas?
  11. 11.
    He's a dick.
    And doesn't know what he's missing out on.
