This is a very interesting topic, and one that really has no end of arguments. I'll weigh in here as a father of 4, step-father of 2, and grandfather of 4. So I've seen my share of kids growing up on...

Happens to me all the time. Tell the GF I'm going for a 1/2 - 1 hr bike ride, then don't reappear for 3 hours. It's frustrating, and she keeps trying to say it's somehow my fault....
