    until then

    I was waiting for you till 5 o'clock at the bus stop, but you didn't seem to come along until then. So I boarded the bus.

    Are these sentences correct?

    I have written, until then to mean till 5 o'clock.

    If they didn't arrive, then correctly "but as you had not arrived by then, I boarded the bus".

    Re: until then

    Thank you Anglika.

    I think my original sentence is correct though meaning varies than I intended. Here is my guess what the sentence means : "I was waiting for you till 5 o'clock, but you haven't arrived till I got onto the bus".

    "...but you hadn't arrived before I got on the bus."
