Why does my boyfriend instantly respond to texts from
everyone when he’s spending time with me (even carrying out full, day-long conversations), but won’t respond to me at all when he’s with other people?
He knows it bothers me that he’s on his phone every other minute that we’re together, and I don’t bombard him with texts. In fact, I rarely text because I think it’s rude–I won’t even answer the phone if I’m talking to someone in person.
But seriously, I ask him a question before work and 6 hours later I haven’t heard anything, but his friends say “what’s up” and he has a whole conversation while I’m sitting there trying to talk to him. Usually I have to repeat everything I say because he’s not paying attention.
It’s sad that I can tell what he’s doing (playing video games, hanging out with friends, etc) based on how long it takes him to respond to me. It also makes me really hate cell-phones and I’m even developing grudges against his friends.
