I've been dating my wonderful bf for a few months now. In these past few months I've noticed a chronic problem on his part....time! I am very punctual when it comes to meeting times and other such things, most times arriving at least 15 minutes earlier than when I'm scheduled to be somewhere. My bf, on the other hand, is the exact opposite. He plans on leaving/being somewhere at a certain time, but he gets easily distracted, playing his guitar, drums or doing something else and most times doesn't even get around to leaving till AFTER the time he was supposed to meet whoever he's meeting! For a good example, we were taking a road trip last week and I met him at his house at noon. We'd planned to leave by 1 at the latest (and this was a long road trip...1200 miles one way!). Well by the time he gets around and gets a shower and packs (keep in mind we've been planning this trip for 3 months) it's nearly 4! Needless to say, I was NOT happy. He does this nearly all the time. I've tried repeatedly reminding him, but the more you push him the more he just pushes back. He doesn't own a watch - in fact his mother told me she bought him one for his birthday once and he got mad at her and gave it back! Just wondering if there's anything I can do to help him manage his time better - without sounding like a bossy, nagging girlfriend- and realize that yes, his friends know how he is, but that doesn't mean he HAS to be like that!?
