But just because somebody should do something doesn’t mean they will, for whatever reason. 😉 But be that as it may, it does bother you and my bet is that you are trying to figure out a way to address it without making him defensive or damaging the relationship.
We don’t like chit-chat if it’s not towards a purpose, it’s just not how we’re wired.I would say that if he says he’s going to text or call you, he should do that…But the reason I say it is that it’s something I would have said years ago in an early relationship. The thing is, as I had more relationships –more falling in love and then eventually the break-up, more ups, more downs, more experience — my perspective changed and the way I was in relationships changed too… Sure, people get jaded by breakups, sometimes for a month, sometimes for several months (or longer), but the ups and the downs of relationships are both really good things.My point is that in the moments he’s with you, he probably does mean it.At the same time, love does not mean that you should expect him to pick up the phone all the time or text you constantly.
Guys, lovable as we can be, usually like to use the phone to make a plan and that’s that.
