How late is too late for you to eat dinner? We usually eat between 5-5:30pm. Tonight is Pizza night. We will be making pizza with my sister in law. it is already 6:30pm and she isn't here. Would you wait? Order? How long would you wait and how late is too late for you, no matter what the meal?

Well, my boyfriend and I have totally different schedules than lost people. We both work evenings from 3pm-midnight. We usually eat something small when we wake up around noon or 1pm, get "lunch" around 6 or 7pm, then eat dinner when we get home at midnight. For normal schedules though, I dont think 6:30 is all that late. When I was in high school, we usually didnt eat until 7 at the earliest. I would give her till 7, then start dinner. Is it possible to call her?

We tend to have dinner around 6pm-8pm, so too late would be about 12pm. Sometimes I come in at 11pm and then make myself some dinner then, but if it was getting on to 12pm then I would just go to bed and wait for breakfast the next day.

We usually eat anywhere between 5:30 and 6:30 depending on how late lunch was eaten and how hungry we are. 6:30 is really pushing it though. If I were you I would definitly have ordered by now. Especially since you are ordering and it takes time to make and deliver (if you're getting delivery).

My husband as per his family tradition would like to eat dinner between 5:30-6:00pm. I, on the other hand, would like to eat later at around 7:30-8:00pm. Usually at winter, we tend to eat at earlier time maybe because it gets dark early and at summer time, we don't eat dinner until the sun sets.

We always take our dinner late. It is normally around 7.45pm to 8.30pm. I could only wait for about 30 minutes otherwise I would take the food first if having dinner at home. I would like to have a cup of hot milk to make my stomach slightly filled and continue to wait if we are going to have our dinner outside.

I don't have dinner very late. Usually we will have dinner at about 7pm. Most of the time we have dinner at home. We will go out to have a dinner sometimes in the weekends. I love China

Usually we have dinner at four thirty in our school canteen. If we go to the canteen late, there will be few dishes. So the best time to have dinner for me is the time when the canteen is open.

We eat a 6 pm every night. It is like a ritual in our house. There have been times though, that we have been busy doing something somewhere and not gotten to eat until very late or not at all. I usually have something on hand for sadwiches or something for this purpose.

We usually have dinner between 6-7pm. If it's past 7 and i'm already very hungry, i'd go eat any food i can find. I feel like the more and longer i wait, i get full and end up having no appetite to eat. My stomach is already full of air. So i dislike waiting for food too long and will just eat anything to avoid a long wait.

My bother is always late. I don't mean late once in awhile. Late for everything, everytime. I finally found a way around this and it works. If I'm waiting for him, he gets a fifteen minute grace period. If he's meeting me at a restaurant, and misses the fifteen minute window, he knows I'm inside ordering. If it's 6:30, and you were planning on eating between 5-5:30, I would have ordered the pizza by 5:30. Why not set her up on the fifteen minute grace period? Then there are no questions or confusions. I love the night life. Sometimes I don't eat until 10 pm, but I don't go to sleep until two or three am. It's my body's natural cycle.
