Have you ever had the frustrating experience of a guy be late for a date? First dates are hard enough without that going on as well. Today, I want to give you tips on how to handle it when a guy’s like for the date.
Hey, it’s Mark here from Make Him Yours. [Music playing] So dating can be hard enough as it is, let alone when the guy is running late, and you’re not sure how to handle it. So today, I want to give you a few tips on how to handle this situation, so it’s one less thing you have to worry about. So the first thing is just check your facts girls.
Did you get the time right, the day, right? Did you actually confirm, make sure everything was established. Number two, once he’s about five minutes late, you want to text him but assume the best of him. So something like, “Hey hope you’re all good.
I’m at the front where we said we’d meet.” It subtly reminds him that he’s running late, but without actually being harsh on him. If he still hasn’t got back to you and it’s been about 15 minutes later, you want to call him and be a bit more firm. So something like, “Hey, it’s just me. I hope you’re all good.
Have been waiting here 10 minutes now and just letting you know I’m heading home pretty soon if I don’t hear from you.” It’s not rude, and it doesn’t sort of imply that he’s being particularly intentionally obnoxious, but it does say, look, this is going to go, I’m going to go if you’re not here soon. Okay, so usually at this stage through either text or a phone call or a phone message, if you had to leave it, hopefully he’s gotten back to you in some way and you have some idea how far off he is. So now you have to decide for yourself. How long do you want to wait?
You know, is his excuse reasonable? Is he getting back to you as fast as he can? Is he apologetic?
Has something happened to him? All these should kind of determine how long you want to wait. Obviously if he’s being rude or lazy with his replies, then you don’t want to be waiting very long, but if he’s super apologetic, then that’s okay and you might want to wait a bit longer for him.
Now, if you’ll wait for him and he does arrive, you’ve got to watch how apologetic he is. So the later he is, the more he should be making that shit up to you. If he’s really apologetic and then you can say something playful like that’s okay though, you should know I’m just expecting the best date ever for me now.
On the other hand, if he sort of doesn’t seem to care, if he’s, doesn’t, hardly even acknowledge his own lateness, it might be the time you want to head home early. And of course if he doesn’t get back to you at all, it’s time to get the hell out of there. Once you sent the text, once you’ve done the phone call, if he’s not there for about another five minutes, then get the hell out of there. He obviously doesn’t respect you or your time or something bad has happened to him, which you have to consider as well. But either way, the date‘s probably don’t happening.
Um, you never know. I remember I once had a story where I got really angry at a girl who I thought had stood me up and something really, and her friend had been hurt and she had to go and deal with that. So you just never know what could have happened to someone.
But look, I hope this all gives you one less thing to worry about the first time you head out on a date. Don’t forget, we just released a post as well on how to have a great first date, so make sure you check that out and it’ll give you some other tips to get that first date going really well. Thanks again for watching girls.
