Express why it’s important to you to acknowledge your status as a girlfriend in public and how you value the relationship.
When a guy doesn’t confirm by 3 pm, make other plans. After all, how long do you think he is going to wait for you, especially if you have a habit of showing up late all the time? It’s not important at this stage of a relationship.
