Rather than get upset, there is a workaround to prevent people from doing this. Before one steps out the door they should have the person they are meeting be willing to invest in something before they meet. Have that person set up a reservation, do the driving, prepare the food or put some sort of outlay of time, money or effort before you agree to meet them.
Don't make it so easy for someone to ghost. If they have no intention of meeting you then they won't be preparing food or ponying up credit card information to place a reservation.
