"Sending Request" times out, no response for GET request

Describe the bug
Using a MEAN stack application. Checking the routes to the mongo database. When I send the get request in Postman, it gets stuck “sending request” and then just times out.

To Reproduce

  1. Started Node/Express server in terminal
  2. Started mongo in a separate terminal, and made sure Node/Express server is still activated error free
  3. Logged on to Postman, and filled out the form with a GET request to my app
  4. “Sending Request” message comes up and stays that way until finally responding with “Could not get any response” message.

Expected behavior
I expected to see an empty dictionary in the response, since I have not created any entries yet.
