There is no doubt that Drew Barrymore has a lot going for her, so when even she gets stood up for a date, it is clear that she’s just like the rest of the non-famous human beings in the world. Susan Trombetti, matchmaker and CEO of Exclusive Matchmaking, explained, “Most of the time, it has absolutely nothing to do with you, so you shouldn’t feel bad about it,” even though she admitted that it’s “hard not to do.” Trombetti remarked, “When you get stood up, your self-esteem takes a hit,” no matter how much logic a person can apply to the situation.
Trombetti shared, “In the case of Drew Barrymore, we can’t be 100% positive what happened. But my suspicions would be that he had cold feet because she was a celebrity.” She theorized, “He might have freaked himself out over the date.” It might actually have nothing to do with Barrymore’s fame, with Trombetti hypothesizing, “Maybe he was running late and was too embarrassed once he realized the time.” She added, “He could definitely have low self-esteem as well. Some people like the idea of someone agreeing to go out with them as a confidence boost but never intended to go out with the person.”
No matter what reason he had for flaking out, Trombetti emphasized, “It is always important to remember that when someone stands you up, it most likely has nothing to do with you.”
