"stood up"

Posted by Pamela on December 13, 2006

I've looked, but can't find any source for "stood up" meaning that someone who you have a date with doesn't show. I wondered whether it had something to do with dancing (i.e. the person who is supposed to be dancing with you leaves you standing). Any ideas?
