Here’s the next one.
You’ve asked the obligatory number of times and got to the “Yes, I’d love to go out on a date with you” stage. You’ve even set a time and a place.
A couple of hours beforehand you call to confirm and learn that she’s been called in to work unexpectedly, still in bed with a hangover, overloaded with homework, visiting a friend who is having an emotional crisis, in Singapore, possessed by the devil, or something equally important that is going to prevent her being where she said she would be at the time she said she would be.
Do you reschedule, and if so how many times do you try before you give up?
OR, she tells you that she’s a bit late getting started due to her mother’s shopping needs taking precedence, but she’ll be on her way shortly. Eventually she gets there 30minutes to three hours late. How long do you wait?
What are your personal limits to flakiness?
