Why does he always tell me to call him?Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
There's this guy that I like. We chat on the phone every now and then and he always tells me to call him (not a problem) but why doesn't he call me? I'm not really complaining I'm just curious. I WILL NOT ask him because he is just a friend, not a boyfriend or anything like that. So, I'm not gonna come out and ask him that. It just would be awkward being that we are just friends (even though I wish we were more lol)

I think he tells everyone to call him. LoL

My guess would be that it's his way of knowing if someone likes him enough to be with. Kind of insecure, but that could be a misperception. Maybe it will change as he begins to realize you really do like him and vice-versa.

I have to admit...I'm one of those guys. For the people that know me, they seem to be ok with it. I have no problems calling someone back, but in general, I'm not a phone guy and keep phone conversations short.

The only exception to this is family, very close friends or the lady I might be dating at the time.

Well, it's a little harder to tell if he's just a friend... but I usually won't call a girl I like unless she's expecting me to... sending her texts seems to be way more effective, and less awkward/intrusive. Maybe you should make a move and ask him out for coffee? He may not put as high a priority on it because he thinks of you guys as just friends who chat from time to time.

Seems to me if he was really yer friend you wouldnt have any trouble discussing this with him... Or maybe I have a twisted and distorted idea of *Friendship*.

Hmm, you asked a question and then answered it yourself in the same post. Good show!

He is JUST a "friend". He knows that. On top of that, he is probably much like me and doesn't like to waste time talking on the telephone.

Maybe he likes the sound of the phone ringing.

Maybe he doesn't want to bother you so if you call him that means you are free to talk.

Or maybe he pays for outgoing calls from his home fone and he's too cheap?

Ask him....

I hate phones personally, I always return calls, but I just don't like calling people. (I don't want to bother people if they're busy)

Some people are like that.

There are exceptions though, family, people I'm dating etc.

Simple...he's busy and would never find the time to call you.

You wanna talk to him, you'll be calling him.

eh~ I'm kinda like that guy when it comes to calling girls I guess if they call me then I know its a good time for them. whereas the other way around I may be catching them at an inconvenience. I'd just rather go and message them on aim or something ya know lol. :) Yeah I know it doesn't make much sense. hehe but I'm not ocd with it or anything I'll call a girl if she hints to it or it's important. :)

Btw.. if your interested in this dude then tell him lol come on! ;-)

Probably has a cell phone with unlimited incoming calls, and doesn't want to get slammed with overages.

Maybe he has his phone set to vibrate and keeps it in his tickly spot..

Hard to say, maybe he is worried he'll call you at the wrong time.

I worry about calling a woman only to find I disturbed her when she was really busy.
And he might be hoping to become a boyfriend in his future with you.
Never know for sure about us guys without sitting us down and talking about it. Most people make that mistake of not communicating with each other.

If he wanted to call you he would. So take a hint. He is likely being polite. I have a few aquaintances whom I find less than interesting in the conversation department, but I can't be rude and tell them stop calling me. They are great people but a little boring for me. So I have not desire to call them but they do call me weekly for a quick chat.

Maybe he doesn't want outgoing calls on his cell-phone bill where someone could see them. Don't want to get you paranoid, but do you know where he works and lives?

Best guess is that he doesn't want to bother you... Have you ever hung up with him because you were busy or had another phone call? It only takes once or twice before a guy just says, "screw it, call me when you are ready to talk..."

I agree with braindrain22 on this one, [ If he wanted to call you he would. ]
also this way he doesn't have to remember to call you and you don't get your feelings hurt, you'll know for sure when he starts having to hang up for whatever reason.or even not answering the phone when seeing your number. You should at LEAST tell him to give you a call then WAIT to see if it ever happens , hey if he don't call then girl ya got your answer..Good luck!

Personally, I wouldn't bother. If he's not even going to make the effor to call you, what sort of friend is he? If you want him to be more, then you are onto a bit of a loser here. You deserve someone who is not only going to call, but is willing to travel if necessary. You just need to up your requirements of a man. This isn't to say you should never call him, but I do believe men like the chase and don't appreciate what they can get easily. It's a matter of self-respect and you already know that.

HAHA.... It's an attraction button baby. Don't ask me why, I don't know. It just is. Obviously, it's working.

You gotta turn it around on him.
