Is Calling My New Crush Too Aggressive?

Dear Sugar
I have been seeing this new guy at my school for about two months now. He is great and we have been having so much fun together. He is polite, smart, witty, and a total gentleman around both me, my friends and my parents.

I hate to sound like a typical insecure female, but I freak out when he says he will call and he doesn't. I don't know whether to take the initiative and call him or just wait for him to call me. Impatient Isabelle

Dear Impatient Isabella
The waiting game can often feel like an eternity. When he says he will call and doesn't follow through, how long are you waiting by the phone? A few hours or a few days? Have you established the status of your relationship? Has your crush always made the first move? Since you have been dating now for two months, I think it is perfectly acceptable for you to take the initiative and call him.

I understand your frustration with your lack of phone attention. Perhaps you should let him know you get hurt feelings when he doesn't follow through with his phone call promises. Try to have a relaxed attitude about it, if your guy's only downfall is he sometimes loses track of time, I don't think you have anything to worry about. Good luck.
