you've been dating a guy for 6 months. he invited you to dinner at a restaurant at 8pm. It is half an hour later and he hasn't shown up. You call and text him but he does not respond. what do you do?

note: i am not giving more information than this
note: i am not going to tell you what ends up happening - that's not important or the question

I leave, and I expect him to have a good explanation for standing me up if he intends to see me again.

P.S. Give more info, ass.

I put thumbtacks on his chair and wait patiently.

I track him down and wrap my arms around his strong legs, crying "Why, Dan? Why?"

Acceptable excuses

- Death
- Serious Accident
- They are Superman and there was a crisis with a bus full of school children in Africa

Weak excuses

- I'm really sorry I just lost track of time
- I was working late and couldn't get out of it
- My phone died and I couldn't let you know I was running late

Unacceptable Excuses

- My wife that I didn't tell you about has just gone into labour.
- I've realised that I don't really like you and decided to ignore you completely and hope you go away.
- I was on my way but a bear came out of nowhere and bit my hand off... whilst I was holding my phone! Why do I still have two hands? Err... it got better...

I'd give him the benefit of the doubt and assume that he's in the middle of a really good game, which is an acceptable excuse in my book

If it's been 6 months, I think he should have the chance of being at least heard out.

I let out a serious fart that creates a gas cloud with a holding pattern over his chair. If he shows up late his face will melt worse than the dudes at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Half an hour isn't so bad, I'd probably just be listening to some tunes.

I would leave and continue attempting to get in contact with him to figure out what was going on.

Wait another 1/2 hour, call him 3 or 4 times more. If you get no answer then just leave

I've been dating this guy six months? I leave a message on his phone or send a text saying something along the lines of "hey uh, you're half an hour late and I can't reach you so Imma head home. Let me know what's up so I know you didn't like, get horribly maimed or something." If this isn't a common occurrence, then I'm probably just a little annoyed.

I buy a handgun, sneak into his house and wait for him to fall asleep and then place a pillow on the barrel of the gun and shoot his kneecaps off. He is then my prisoner for life... so about ten hours give or take a bit. I'm no doctor so he'll die of an infection. But ah what a glorious ten hours with Julian....sorry I meant this hypothetical man. :bigsmile:

Most of you are sane. That is good.

I've had responses like 'go on a date with somebody else'

Well hey if there's some other lonely shmuck in the joint I'd join them and make a party of it.

No response to a call or a text? I go home and cry for a bit :jess: then go find something to do.

Leave a message that is concerned. Wait 24 hours. If still nothing call a mutual friend to make sure everything is okay. Wait 24 hours. Try a family member if I know them, or a different mutual friend. If nothing by 48 hours, to hell with them I'm getting ice cream.

Wonder why I've been dating a man for six months.

Assume that the person has been either been maimed or robbed. Begin to worry. Text another person who knows him well to ask them if they've seen him around recently. Them not answering the phone could also mean that they've lost it or it's been stolen. Similar things have happened where I tried to reach someone when we had something to do together and they ended up getting robbed. Their iphone was stolen along with money and their ipod. They had to go to the precinct to file a police report.

This. Though I'd be more concerned as to why I'm dating a guy at a restaurant.

I'd probably be pretty aggravated. But I'd wait about ten more minutes, and if nothing, leave. I wouldn't call or text him after that either, I'd wait for him to come crawling back to me. :bigsmile:

Will, are you taking notes, dear?
