    So me and my best friends were laughing about that quirk of mine lol. I’m a huge fan of proactive communication within a function adult relationship, and therefore voice my strong belief in that concept, early on in the makings x a relationship. I gave OkCupid a try this summer, to spice things up. I met a man. We corresponded for a while. He fell off the radar for several days (no communication), yet was online several time during that instance. From the beginning, I brought up the importance of communication, and desire to only be with a man who feels the same.

    A week later, he sent serial text messages and called consecutively. I gave this man the benefit of the doubt, by asking was all well and he replied, I was busy. I never responded back ( it will be three weeks now). He has continued to send messages, insisting I speak with him.
    My best friends called me mean, but I believe tha

    As a busy professional and divorced father of two, I can relate to this issue. I’ve only dated 3 women since my divorce. The second woman I was with had similar thoughts on communication. Unfortunately there were times I was too involved with my own life to be very responsive to her and it eventually contributed to us ending our relationship. I would suggest that if your needs regarding communication are not being met and you have given him a chance to change but it is still a problem, then he may not be the right guy for you. In our case I think ending things was the right decision.

    it is highly possible he didn’t have the time to talk to you. give him a chance.

    Yeah he may have the app which explains him being signed on, it doesn’t mean he was actually using it. Give him another shot, if this is a consistent thing then move forget him.

    He might be genuinely busy. Maybe you said something that upsetted him? It might not mean much to you but men take things differently.

    sounds a little weird to me. I’d move on to something that comes more natural
