What Would Debbie Do?
He Dropped the Ball
I have been seeing a guy for 16 months and I talk to him over the phone every day. Well about two weeks ago we had a conversation which ended with us saying that we would speak later that evening. Long story short, he never called and still hasn’t but I don’t want to be the one doing all the work. Should I let it go and see what happens? I have a difficult time waiting for someone to come to me.

Yes. You need to let it go and see what happens.
Men love a challenge. And while you might feel it’s a good thing to be available and accommodating, some men begin to find it routine, and they tend to take it for granted. Now while men are very different from women in terms of communication – he might not think anything of the lull in phone calls, while you’re seeing trouble – I still think that mixing it up a bit and playing “hard-to-get” always bodes well for women. Unfortunate, but true!
