Tonight is our first date and he's suppose to be here at 7:30. He said he'll be a little late. How late can he be before I can refuse to leave the house?
How late can I allow a guy to be?

You gotta go with your gut and determine whether or not his reason is legit.
Sometimes shit just happens in life, and it'd suck to miss out on someone simply because of an arbitrarily-decided time limit, ya know?2
If you pulled that on me, you'd be done. I wouldn't ask you back out. No matter how much I initially liked you. Just go with the flow, and if he is habitually late, then stop dating him. It's that easy. No need to try and control him and hope that you can change him (you can't). It'll just turn him off.1
5 minutes. for God's sake.1
half hour. typically 15 minutes is a given, then you can be nice and give him 15. thats why they say 30 minutes is fashionably late. why can't he take you out if he's later than that?0
It depend how much money he brings1
it's part of dating and it brings in the excitement too0
Don't answer the door after 7:321

It depends what his reason is for being late and if he seems genuine3
I mean if he told you he'll be a little late then I wouldn't get to mad unless its like over an hour or more1
refusing the house is a bit too much plus he's already giving you the heads up - how long is it before the date? I would say text him and tell him to text you ten minutes before he's there - that way you don't have to sit and wait on him. if he takes more than 30 mins I would just expect a really good explanation.2
Half an hour mostly in extreme cases 45 to 60 mins0
There is a time limit for him to be late? What if you were the one who was late?1
Give him time he's probably nervous. If he apologies get over it. Not everyone is good with time management.3
