How To Handle Lateness

When you are meeting up it’s so easy to get nervous while you are waiting for your date. YOU WILL REMAIN CALM. There is nothing to worry about. You are not being stood up. You’ll want to give them a confirmation text or email earlier that day to let you know that they indeed intend to meet with you. Give a few minutes leeway for lateness, considering the subway and city traffic. 15 minutes max. Just about everyone has a cell these days so explanations are in order.

Once your date explains their lateness, move on. Do not harbor this throughout the entire date. However, if you are persnickety about lateness, you might want to stress tardiness BEFORE your actual meeting. The more upfront you are, the better.
