This has been one huge problem since the beginning, and I was wondering if anybody has any similar experience. It's one big mess in timing. I guess I can't change it, it's just the way I am.

She's just always late, at least 20 minutes, and I'm always like five minutes early, whether it's for dinner, for the movies, for a date, whatever.

I've always liked to come early to important meetings and dates. I like to come early to the airport, at least 3 hours on international and 2 hours on domestic.
I like to be at the movies 15 minutes before they start. Period.

Are you a late person, an early-comer or just right on time? Share!


All the things you probably hate about travelling are warm reminders that I'm home

If you want her to be ready at 7, tell her you're picking her up at 6:30. That would be a good start.

It might work. I'm not sure why so many people-particularly women are so lackadasical when it comes to punctuality. Maybe it's something in their chromosomes, the same thing that compels them to say "like" in every single sentence. Or maybe it's just plain bad manners and indifference to anyone else.

I've broken up with several women over the years over the issue of punctuality. I'm always on time if not early. To me, 5 o'clock means...well...5 o'clock. Not 4:55...not 5:10.

I've learned to just deal with it by using my suggestion above, namely padding the schedule. I've abandoned several dates (and probably several lays as well) by sticking to my guns and walking out when I say 5 means 5.

In NZ you have to be clear whether working to "Island Time" or "Pakeha Time" mostly i find that 15 mins late and no-one turns a hair, sometimes they're glad you're late, I don't stress if people are late and from certain cultures I will expect the timings to be approximate.

My brother freaked out when we didn't leave for AKL from my house until well inside the 3 hour check-in period but if you check-in 45 mins before boarding there usually isn't a queue.

But back to you, relax mate, learn to know when you must be early and when it doesn't matter and enjoy your life, time was made for man, not man for time.......

Women cannot tell time, accept this fact. I advise giving her times a good 30 minutes in advance of when you actually need her ready. This is SOP with most women I know.

Birdwatching,

Just remove your spam filter for an evening and plenty of assistance will be on offer.
I was told that instructions for some of those products must be followed very strictly, abuse of medication leading to the opposite effect....I always come late, my gf hurt and unhappy".

Joke apart (it is your fault), welcome to Greece, the land where even the clocks are so lazy that both needles are hanging on 6.
I (non-Greek) had that problem for about 8 years.
Now I have adapted, I live my life, my wife lives her life, and it happens that we intersect.

Small exaggeration...no, I have learned to discern the undiscernable, i.e. to sense the meaning of "in one or two hours" or "at about 6".
It all depends of what the target of the female is.
If it is to go for (specialized) shopping, I reckon the precision will be +/- 1%, if it is to meet someone somewhere at night it may vary by one hour (the person will be there anyway), if it is to come back home after an evening with her friends I just forget about it and think I am a bachelor again.

We males are the poor lot BW, nothing has changed since Eve.
Some yoga lessons might be of great help.

It's better to be early than late. As a woman, I always make sure I am always early or late, one of my pet hates is bad time-keeping.
