I just started dating my brother's best friend who I have known for 12 years. We are great together when we hangout and when we are intimate it feels like it couldn't be better. The thing is, he never calls when he says he will call!! I honestly feel this relationship could be amazing but, he just isn't putting as much effort into communicating as I am. If you say you are going to call someone... CALL - it doesn't seem that difficult of a concept! -- Waiting by the Phone Phoebe

Dear Waiting by the Phone Phoebe --
Grrrr, there really is nothing worse than waiting by the phone for someone to call you so I can completely understand how you're feeling. This may sound obvious, but have you talked to him about respecting your time and honoring his word? I agree, if someone says they will call, they should call, but keep in mind that men and women are different breeds especially when it comes to the phone.
The next time he says he is going to call you, tell him how you feel when he doesn't follow through. Since you are frustrated by his lack of communication with you, be sure to keep open lines of communication with him. I know I might sound like a broken record here, but men aren't mind readers so speak up and hopefully he will take the appropriate steps to improve his phone etiquette. Good luck!
