Assume this is a date you've been waiting for forever with the hottest guy/girl you know, but you're there at the restaurant and they haven't shown up, they haven't texted or called. Are you holding out hope that maybe they got the time wrong or maybe were stuck in traffic and their phone died, or are you like, I'm out. I'm not waiting for this?
After Trying his Celly and No Reply, I would Begin to Get... Concerned and Worried that Something might have Happened to him. I probably would Wait it out, Ordering a drink or Two, and after an hour and Maybe a Bit longer if I didn't see him Walk through the Door, I would Get up, Pay the bill, and by Then... Be not only a little Humiliated I was Sitting alone, but also Start thinking that Maybe now, I was Stood up. Good luck, Great question, @BeeNee xx
I'd just stick around, go in, order food and start enjoying my meal at the restaurant without them after having waited around for about an hour. That'd take up another hour or so; if they turn up when you're in the middle of eating, invited them to come join you and ask them what kept them so long, but if they're still a no-show, then just brush it aside, pay the bill and go home- don't bother calling up to ask, because you'll already know the answer, and the onus should be on her to explain her no-show and prove that she hasn't stood you up.
I understand the term of being fashionably late when it comes to a girl being ready for her date and getting to the meeting place, but just like everything in life one should plan ahead as best they can for things going wrong. Leave early enough to beat traffic or to account for your phone dying, but making sure you change it beforehand so those things don’t happen. Still, things happen, and we can’t always plan for every contingency. Therefore, the longest I would wait for a date, no matter how ‘hot’ and attractive she is would be 30-minutes. If the person meant more to me than just a date I’d consider staying longer, but not for just a date.
One hour is my tops. Sure maybe I've waited or long for this moment for what seems like forever , but I'm not a push over or the butt end of a funny joke. The likelihood of all of those things lining up are slim to none. I want that date but I'm not desperate
I'd wait 15 minutes and then call them myself, if they answer (they should have a reason/apology especially for not calling themselves or trying). If they said they'll be there soon I'll order a drink, and wait until it's finished/another 15 uor so (so total of 30 minutes waiting). At that point I'll probably just message saying I'm leaving, feel free to reschedule. Or something.
15 before I text asking if he's on his way. Another 15 before I say fuck it and leave, and send him another text telling him I've left and to let me know what happened, assuming something legit held him up.
no phone call/text would be a concern. i would wait for an hr. if i don't hear back at all. then move on and delete his number if this is first meet up. tells me he is not interested. if his phone die... it would not be a good thing. i am old fashion. i think the guy/girl should be more prepare when it comes to first date. make sure phone is fully charged and things all set.
10 mins if he's especially amazing, but more likely 5.
