Response to: He’s Not Answering

The Relationship Advice Surgery had this problem posted last night;

i dont know what went wrong.. we were fine txting that night but when the morning comes, i have’nt recieved any txtmessages from my BF anymore.. i tried to call him all day but he’s not answering. it’s the 2nd day now still cant reach him… i really dont know what to do now, we are in a long distance relationship. ­čÖü ┬á i just want to know what happened.. is his phone lost or something? aaaagghhrrrr…. ­čÖü ┬á ┬áspeculations are now in my mind.. think im going crazy thinking of it now… ┬áplease give me your advice. i really need it now.


EVERYBODY’S been in this situation before and it’s not a nice one. However, the WORST thing you can do it continue to text/call. Men need space and they don’t know how to ask for it. It doesn’t necessarily mean space from YOU or your relationship. But when a man goes quiet, give him some space.

There is always the chance he lost his phone. But on a probability scale, this isn’t very likely. If your man wanted to contact you, he’d find another way i.e email or facebook etc.

There is also a chance he doesn’t want to talk to you. And if that’s the case, the last thing you want to do is force him too.

At a time like this, you need to relax and STAY away. He’ll come back when he’s ready. But if he’s taken took long, and you think he’s messing you about, give him the same treatment back!
