It has been a problem for as long as men and women have had relationships! You are going out for the night and she is taking forever getting ready. Men, what are you to do? Well according to Men's Health magazine there's not much you can really do to speed things up; however, there are a few things you can do to ease your pain.

You can lie about the actual time you have dinner reservations. Example: tell her dinner is at 7:30 instead of 8. This gives you a cushion of half an hour for her to do all the things she feels she needs to get done.

Gently remind her an hour and a half before it's time to leave, not before you need to be there, that it's time to get ready.

The one thing I always do is get ready first. Shower, shave, dress so you're ready to go the moment she says I'm ready!

Find something to do while she is locked safely away in the bathroom getting ready. My favorite is watching Sports Center or if she is really taking a long time the first season of Seinfeld.

What do you do to help speed things up? Have you ever started a fight that ended up with you NOT going out?
