I met a cool person on Tinder last week and we made plans to meet at a park yesterday. Except they never texted me back yesterday. I was excited and now I feel rejected.
This is the first time I’ve been stood up on a date and subsequently ghosted.
Does anyone have any tips on how to get over this?
PS: Tinder, in my recent experience, is not good for mental health. Avoid if you can.
PSS: I need to find a therapist, not whatever it is I’m looking for on Tinder.

Delete your account, delete the App and don't come back until you feel well again. If you still have this thing and use it you will get triggered for quite some time.
One more thing: People are often also shy. Sometimes they just don't know how to react. They often do not intend to hurt others. Online dating alienates humans from human relationship.
In general: You have to accept that neither the platform nor (most of) the people see a human being in you when using the App. For the company you are the product and customer in one person; they design the App not to make you happy or satisfy your needs (for human relations), they don't want to lose you as customer and product. Many other people in such App see you also as product, because of this problem. Men have this tendency since they often pay for the usage and the want something in return for their money. Women since they can be picky (there are much more men on such platforms) and often have negative contact with people there.
