As women we all want to understand why guys don’t call when they say they will. Most of us have dated a few men who will promise that they’ll call and then not. We then typically are the ones who pick up the phone to call the man. It’s a frustrating struggle that never seems to get better, regardless of how long you’ve been in a relationship. So what’s the real reason why men don’t call and what can women do about it?
The main reason why guys don’t call when they say they will is they don’t believe they need to. Most relationships establish some patterns fairly early. One of those focuses on the issue of phone calls. Consider what typically happens if a man tells you he’ll call and then he doesn’t. Chances are very good that you’ll call him. You might give him a little grief over why he didn’t call, but for the most part you’ll just be glad to hear his voice. Men recognize this. They know that women do this so they become complacent about calls and just don’t put them at the top of their priority list. If your man knows you’ll eventually call him, he won’t call you.
So what’s a woman to do if she’s in a relationship with a man who never calls? The simple solution is for her to stop calling him. If you suddenly stop being the one to do all the calling, your man will have no choice but to call you. It may take a day or two, but he’ll do it. If you’d prefer for this aspect of your relationship to be more balanced, just resist the urge to call him. You’ll be grateful you did once he does start calling you.
