what if you go on a first date and you have to wait for the person you're going to meet because he/she isn't still ready. would you date that person again? I"M a pretty punctual person and I hate it when people get late. so I would get really angry if that happened. maybe I would consider seeing him again. but if on the second date he is also late than bye bye

Well I'm like you I'm very punctual type person and never like to be late. However, it would all depend on how late. If its only 5 or 10 minutes they would definitely get a second chance. However, if its longer then that or close to an hour with no phone call explaining the problem, they are a gonner.

yes you're right. as long as they are late they could show the necessary respect a give a call to explain themselves and tell us how much they are going to be late...

Not everyone can be a punctual person. Being on a time for a date is no reason not to date them again. Not being punctual does not mean they are not worthy of our attentions. I ould date them again. Perhaps I could find a way to motivate them into being ready for me in the future.

but what if he does it every time? I couldn't take that...as long as I could be there on time, especially considering that I:m a woman and women take longer to get ready...so I don;t know how much could I resist

my guy was 30minutes late during our first date but it wasn't a big deal for me as i was just being casual with him.. so i considered his unpunctuality the first time we met and dated. well we had a good time and i was interested to know more about him so i wanted to see him again. on our second date, i was the one who arrived late.. i didn't intend to be late, but i had a hectic schedule.. good thing he didn't get angry or mad at me.. i think punctuality is a good trait to practice as time is very precious. but sometimes we have to consider other factors hindering punctuality... but it your date gets late every time you go out, and makes a lot of excuses that's a big sign of NO NO and BYE BYE..

you're right. of course I could understand that there are reason that could make you be late under certain circumstances but if he does that every time than maybe he isn't interested in us meeting and he does it just because I want to see him.so I would definitely stop dating him

Give him/her a second chance. maybe he/she has valid reasons why he/she's late and on the first date, you must understand and accept his/her explanations. but if on your second date he/she did it again, dump him/her! it only shows that there isn't any interest dating with you and you won't even feel he/she's excited to see you because you are not punctual with your date.

I agree with you. plus I wouldn't like to have a metrosexual with me who spends more time in front of the mirror than i do.

I know its hard to understand people who practice unpunctuality. If you are interested on the person you date. Punctuality is not needed. But if you dont want or you dont have any good interest on your date, Maybe you should go get another date which will interest you in many ways:)

I see punctuality as a matter of respect. if he doesn't come on time than maybe he's not interested enough in me or else he wouldn't make me wait for him. especially for a guy to be late it's a pretty ugly geasture

if my people can understand in what circumstances a person only and if he behaves like that continues, I will try to advise him not to behave that way.

I am a punctual person too. If you say 3 pm, I will be there even earlier than that. I also hate to wait. But in case there is a valid reason to be delayed, then I guess I can make a consideration.
