I dunno, McDonalds for the first date would have been the dealbreaker...lol! Forget all the rest of the stuff you mentioned.

Write it off and stop feeling guilty. You didn't owe this guy anything after he treated you so disrespectfully. Why should you have told him why you were leaving? You waited 20 minutes!!! If the guy can't even have a minimum of consideration on any of your dates why are you worrying about him? I am more worried about you and what your feelings indicate about your self esteem. You deserve better and don't forget it!

I was in defense mode for him too up until the cell phone issue came up....lol
I would say no Ur not wrong but at the same time if it was the babysitter or something then U should give him a pass. Then again he should have put them on hold and told U who it was to make U feel like Ur just sitting there waiting on him.

I have children and sometimes sitter can be dumb about the simplest things. With that said communication is key.... Good luck to the next one around.

ugh..for the love of all that is holy -- stay the ** away from mikkie dees!!! ..
It's cursed ( and tacky ).. and seems to draw the worse guttersnipes like your deadbeat time-challenged date..
So far on this site I have seen the most horrendously awful dates emanate from a " first meets at mickkie dees"....
you'd be better off meeting him in a swampy wooded area.. LMFAO

were you wrong? um.... is this a facetious question?

Wow... you're totally wrong. This guys a keeper! McDonalds, Taco Bell, a deep conversation in a car park... what more could a woman want? Is this honestly acceptable behaviour for a date? Are you joking?

This took you three dates to figure out.. aww.. no, you're not wrong.
- If the guy is late, especially constantly, he has no respect for you.
- If his preferred venue is a fast food place... he has no standards
- If his reaction to you asking if he wants to eat is that HE has eaten, again, no respect for you.
- No money, acts as if its an issue to get some... come on... why is this guy even getting dates to go on???

Hello..I will not tell you if you were right or wrong but I will tell you this...

There is no reason to put up with anything in your life that you do not feel is acceptable. You also have to let someone know that these things are unacceptable or they will never be able to realize what they are doing. Good luck next time.

Ok, well for a first meeting there are better places than Mickey D's and Taco Bell! The time on the cell phone is a major date breaker. It all sounds pretty fishy too! Drop him!

No not at all : ) he obviously was not interested. Take note of how you felt vs. thinking about it too much and you'll have your answer. Remember first impressions are sooo important. When we're first getting to know someone it's a given that they are presenting themselves at their best. That dudes best was not cool for you, and probably the reason why he is single - a typical smuck. I've had the same thing but it was texting during dinner. Not only did she get a great dinner for free but she was on the phone and it was buzzing through the meal.

Ok the whole fact that he invited you to McDonald's for a date is a deal breaker for me right there. McDonalds=no class. Why did you allow this yahoo to be late 3 times?? First time should of been the last. Bringing his kid on a first date??Double yahoo. This guy is a total joke!! You must raise your standards if you want to find a quality man.

Have you asked him why he was late the second and third time? If you didn't like him being late, then let him know. Teach him to be a better person by having him wait for you instead of you waiting for him. I think it's such a turn off when he ask you out so many times. If I were you, I won't see him that often. You want to take it slow no matter how much you like him. You want to keep things mysterious so that he would want to see you again. anyways... take care!

Generally i would say Im late a lot myself, but never for a date...especially a FIRST date... And before I go on too far... I just cant believe stuff like this actually happens. McDs, Taco Bell, and sitting in the park on 3 consecutive days is just assinine behavior. If the guy wont even attempt to take you somewhere decent to show he gives the smallest of craps.... why feel bad? You gave him 3 chances... you did great, and now its time to let it go and move on to the next one :-) Good luck.

I can not believe that he took you to two fast food places. Unless your request... I would have been furious if my date was on her cell while I was with her, I would have done the same and left.
Congrats for that!

I agree, unless there is an emergency for something , you can see who's calling and make the right decision.

DUMP THE DUDE!

We met at McDonalds with his 2 year old son, then Taco Bell, Then the park with no $$$$ Come On. Forget the cell phone issue. By the way how does he pay for his cell phone?

I would never do any of this crap, this guy is a loser. If he doesn't have any money he can plan an inexpensive get together or 1st meet. Fast Food joints just don't cut it.
