He dressed to impress, armed himself with a dozen roses and See's candy, and drove for nearly an hour to finally meet his date.

But she wound up being a no-show.

He drove home with the roses and a broken heart and told his 16-year-old granddaughter Gabby Foresta what happened.

She said, "My grandpa and I are very close and we talk about dating quite a lot since he’s been looking for a companion for a while now, My grandpa was really sad considering he has never been stood up before, so he immediately came over to my house to talk to me and my mom about it. We instantly comforted him because being stood up can be very hurtful."

Moroney messaged his date, telling her that she was "very rude" after everything he did to prepare himself. She never responded.

Gabby thought that was unacceptable, and the teen took to Twitter to sound off on her disappointment.

The support was almost instantaneous as messages came pouring in from upset users.
