My Mom is an Early person and would often tell my Dad to be somewhere 2 hrs before the scheduled time so he'd arrive on time. Otherwise he'd be late to everything. They made it 20 years before divorcing. Not solely because Dad was always late but it wears on early people none the less. What say you, Can an early person successfully coexist with a late person in a Relationship?

It's a little hard, but it's not impossible. I'm a wake up early and get things done kind of gal while my boyfriend is more of a late starter who likes to take his time. The thing that makes things all the worse is that we both like to stay up super late - like 2:00am late. So we go to sleep late and he likes to sleep in. However, I can run on like 2 hours of sleep and be ready to enjoy the day so waking up early isn't a hassle for me like it is for him. We both struggle with being on time though. I am better at it now, but still not the best and he's really forgetful so sometimes he'll be late to pick me up for something and it drives me insane. He's always willing to work on it though which is what is very important when it comes to relationships.1

I think it can be done. But be reasonable about it.
Seriously: why be two-hours early to an appointment? Why not 30 minutes? Either way, you're there ahead of schedule. With two-hours, you'll be spending a lot of time twiddling your thumbs until the appointment actually happens.1
