I've been 4-5 dates with a guy I like who has started asking at the last minute. This week he didn't ask at all, but sent me a "Happy Friday Night" text instead. Since he hadn't asked me out, I accepted another date. As a result I didn't get his 8pm text until 11:30pm.
What is the best thing to do in this situation?
- Text back upon receipt of text no matter what timeVote A
- Text back in the morningVote B
- Don't respond at all - let him text again at a better timeVote C
- OtherVote D

You need to talk to the guy (face-to-face, or at least by voice would be best), and let him know that while you definitely like him and like going on dates with him, that you need more advance notice, and that you prefer not to receive texts after a certain time of night, or that, if he waits that long, that he shouldn't be surprised if you aren't available.
Don't be mean about it, just matter-of-fact. Let him know he has to either step up, or risk getting left out. He'll understand, and if he doesn't, you are wasting your time with him anyway.0
