(I've reposted this because I'd like to get some more feedback from the evening mom's)
If a guy never makes time for you and every time you call him, your conversation is interrupted over and over because he's putting you on hold to take another call,(from his cousin, his brother-in-law, etc) ...... and this happens EVERY time you talk with him on the phone.... aren't you really kidding yourself that he is REALLY interested in you AT ALL??
Is he taking you for granted? Stringing you along?
How would it make you feel if you discovered that EVERY time you call him, you never get to have a whole conversation because every few minutes he's saying "Hold on, so-and-so is calling, and you find yourself on hold for more time than you are involved in the conversation?
(Just wondering what you ladies would think of a relationship that was playing out like this) Would it be different if it was just a friend who did this to you all the time... or is it the same no matter what your relationship to the person is?
EDITED AFTER THE FIRST 8 ANSWERS OR SO..... The truth is.....
Ah ha! that's what I thought.... now let's get a little more personal with this.... it isn't a guy doing this to me.... it's my BFF doing it. Here's an example of how she is with me: If she calls me and I don't answer (and the only time I don't is when I'm on hold with a customer service or something - if I'm on with another person, I always click over to her and tell her who I'm talking to and that I'll call her back promptly - which I do) -- BUT let's say I'm on with Verizon Customer Service..... so I let her call go to voice mail.....
She'll leave me a HUGE long voice mail, then she'll get on FB and send me a message to tell me that she left me a message on my phone. (I know, kind of makes me feel like she's being VERY demanding of me giving her attention when she beckons for it)..... but when I call her back, immediately the "Hang ons" start, and I spend forever on hold waiting on her to finish phone calls.
I'm really beginning to feel unappreciated and like she only has time for me when it's convenient for her. Makes me feel yucky.
