If the air is extremely still for weeks at a time, or you are growing tomatoes indoors, you can get blooms that do not "set" into fruit. This is because they are not getting pollinated. Tomatoes are self-pollinating, but they need at least a light breeze, or American-native pollinators to disturb them.

You can easily fix this, simply by gently shaking the entire plant (very gently) every day or two.

Note that honeybees are an invasive species from the Old World, while tomato plants are native to the Americas; No plants native to the Americas need, or even can use, honeybees for pollination. Pumpkins need squash bees, tomatoes air-pollinate, corn is pollinated by birds, wind, and large American insects, et cetera.
