He's Just Not That Into You If He's Not Calling You
Men Know How to Use the Phone
Oh sure, they say they're busy.
They say that they didn't have even a moment in their insanely busy day to pick up the phone.
It was just that crazy. Bullshit.
With the advent of cell phones and speed dialing it is almost impossible not to call you.
Sometimes I call people from my pants pocket when I don't even mean to.
We may try to make you think differently, but we men are just like you.
We like taking a break from our generally mundane day to talk to someone we like.
It makes us happy. And we like to be happy. Just like you.
If I were into you, you would be the bright spot in my horribly busy day.
Which would be a day that I would never be too busy to call you.
The “But He's Been Traveling a Lot” Excuse
I recently started dating a very nice man. He's gentle, he's affectionate, he's attentive.
It recently became a long-distance thing because of his work.
The first problem is, he really doesn't call me when he says he's going to.
Actually, he really doesn't call me that much at all.
A week will go by, and then I'll call him, and then he'll call me back four or five days later.
But then when he does get me on the phone, it's all “honey” and “baby” and “I miss you so much” and “when do I get to see you again?”
Is he just not that into me, or can I just chalk it up to the crazy-long- distance thing?
Hey, Crazy Long Distance!
The only distance that's bothering me is the very long distance between you and reality. (Okay,that was a little bit mean. )
Example? In your second sentence you said, "He's gentle, he's affectionate, he's attentive."
But a few sentences later you say, "He really doesn't call me when he says he's going to.Actually, he really doesn't call me that much at all."
That is neither affectionate nor attentive.
And it's not gentle—it's a harsh clanging bell that rings, "I'm just not that into you."
Why, then, is he nice when he calls, you ask? Because men are cowards and they would rather wait until the end of time than give you bad news.
For the record, a man who likes you wants to spend time with you.
And he'll only settle for talking to you on the phone five times a day when he physically can't get on a plane to come see you.
With love, Greg
