Timing is everything, right? I've certainly ruined a good joke by blowing the timing of the punchline, definitely missed a handful of flights by miscalculating my schedule (sorry, Mom!), and I also imagine I've missed bumping into my future soul mate because I was running late. (Stop being so punctual, future babe!) As in life and comedy, timing is everything in dating, too. Finding the right person is key, but what happens when you find the right person at the wrong time?

Read below for her tips on identifying this issue in your relationship and how to handle it.
