She says she wants to meet me after work.

I get where she says to go at 6:30 (after work). I get a TXT. She's running late (she sells high-dollar items, and must stick around to complete sales...) she gets off work. She calls me. We talk while she's driving. She assures me she's almost there. She's almost there. Almost. Fifteen minutes, tops.

My cellphone battery is dying. I say, "Cool, my battery's dying, and I'll see you soon."

She's still not here. Fifteen minutes she says. Try half an hour, and no sign.

None.

I'm chilling at a webcafe for two hours typing away thinking "Well, she's mighty late. Ought I to be upset, or no? Hm. I'll just work on this scene a little longer..."

Let's hope she's not working on her scene. Good luck with the wait. I'd ditch her and visit a nudie bar.

Very rude. Unless she got hit by a bus or something on the way...then you should probably forgive her.

I though he meant she was late late.

Not tardy late, but you know. . .

Well there's late "Honey, I have a surprise for you." and then there's late "Honey, my boyfriend has a surprise for you."

Which would you prefer?

No doubt either conversation will go downhill quickly after the opening line.

Right into the toilet.

You hate surprises, too huh?

Wait...you asked a girl to meet you at a webcafe?

Yeah, she ain't coming, dude.

And, unless you've been dating a girl for a while, you never let her keep you waiting longer than a half hour. Any longer than that, and you leave.

Her loss.

Nope, no excuse for anyone not showing up: short of death. There are better souls out there.

he could be the fool on the wrong block. you guys never can see that. you are the ones to go off all half cocked and leave the scene and then refuse to call or even admit there was an understanding to meet much less listen to a viable excuse like i ran into my old room mates ex-fiancee and you will never believe what that bitch is up to now.... but i digress.--s6

Kindly note that my comment was not gender biased. We're talking about an individual here who called to say they would be there very soon and never showed up.

This is rude and insensitive of any person.

But, thanks for generalizing your bias , SS.

There could be a great story in this. Like she got carjacked the block before the cafe, but she went super badass ninja on them and hog-tied them with their own tighty-whities and had to escort them to the local brig. Her cell phone battery had died and anyway, she forgot his number from the slight case of temporary amnesia she sustained from when Thug #3 clocked her in the temple with his big fake Rolex. But she'll find Badducky and ask her to be her date to the ceremony where the Mayor gives her the key to the city. They'll be wed on the spot and this chick is so cool that she'll figure a way for BD to gestate the children and they'll spawn a gold-medal winning Olympic hockey team together.

And they all lived happily ever after.

As much as it galls me - I have to agree with RT. There are other souls to de

I know some people (mostly women) seem to run chronically late. If you already have a friendship or relationship with such a person, you just accept that as part of who they are and plan accordingly. I used to tell this one friend to arrive 45 minutes earlier than I actually wanted her to come, and I still had to wait a short time on occasion.

However, this scenario plays out like some of the ugly games people play. To text explaining you're late and why, then to say you're nearly there, then never to show up? That's nasty, people-using behavior and she sounds like someone who needs both control and to know how desirable she is, that you'll wait.

Write her off. Don't call her wondering what happened, and don't pretend you believe her lie if she contacts you.

There are many terrific women sitting home while you're waiting for this jackass. Find one.

Maryn, never late

She did show up. We hung out.

I think she liked me WAY more than I liked her.

Still single, ladies. Still single.

I only stayed at the webcafe as long as I did because the band was good.

Perks

So. What was her excuse?

Is anyone besides me wondering how this chick has managed to remain single? She sounds like a real gem.

(Let me apologize right now if you continue to see her).

See, I would have waited for her, and actually wouldn't have even been a bit mad. Actually, I might have been a bit excited. Why, you ask? Well, the answer is simple. I'm the most chronically late person I know. I'm also famous for saying "I'll be there in ten minutes" when there's not a chance in the fieriest pits of Dante's Hell that I'll be there in twenty, let alone ten. Why do I do that you ask? Most likely because at the time I'm throughly convinced that I'm going to somehow drive so fast that I bend space/time and teleport there, or perhaps I'm selfishly trying to downplay how late I really am. Ok, it's probably the latter. Regardless, to meet a chick with this same character flaw would mean that I would be spared the literally thousands of arguments I've had with every other girl I've ever been involved with, without actually having to fix said character flaw!

Excuse? Her cat was sick.

1) you're insane for staying there for longer than a half hour.

2) you're insane for not walking out after that excuse.

3) you're insane for not immediately deleting her number from your cell and cutting her out of your life.

basically, you two are perfect for each other.

Oh, come on! A girl's got to have her fun. If we can't torture men by turning up ridiculously late and tossing them an even more ridiculous excuse when we do saunter in, what has the world come to? We're only plaaaaying!

Hey, I stuck around because the band was good, and I had other things to type up. I didn't stick around for her.

I cut this one off real quick, folks.

Girl seemed to think she deserved a break-up conversation, too. Which was kind of weird after just one date.
