My boyfriend has been working like crazy do to some important projects at work and consequently I've been stood up more than my share of times, I understand that he becomes so involved that he may forget to call to tell me. Should I be more understanding, am I becoming too nagging if I get a teensy bit upset that once more I have to put his plate away?

Well you're not entirely out of line here. If you have to put away his crap all the time, then I can understand why you're annoyed. You have every right to be. Though if he does put in some effort, and he really doesn't have time for it, then maybe you should be a little forgiving. Still I think maybe you can just sorta talk to him again, maybe try and just talk it out. I think in that case the difference between a talk and a nag would be tone and contexts.
As for being stood up, I think after a certain point you can totally call him on it. Seriously, if he's working late and standing you up for a date, you have every right to be mad that he didn't call. I mean seriously, unless he's an air traffic controller or something, something that means he needs to be on something non stop and RIGHT FUCKING NOW or someone could DIE, then he should be able to spare the 30-60 seconds it would take to call in and say "Honey, I'm sorry I can't make it, please forgive me".
All in all I think you need to sit him down and have a serious talk with him. This sounds like it needs to be addressed and now. All of it. It may suck at first, but things might turn around. If they don't you know where to find me.
Good luck with this one.3
