I was talking to this guy I work with about this girl he likes. They have known each other for a few years and are totally BFF. He adores her, and is planning to tell her that he would like for them to be more than friends. (side note: She lives about 9 driving hours away)
Anyway, at lunch I asked if he had talked with her the night before. (this is not the DTR, just wondering if they’d talked on the phone.) He said that he doesn’t talk to her much because he doesn’t want to be inconsiderate of her time. He doesn’t want to interupt her if she’s in the middle of something. I asked if this was something most guys think, or if it’s just him. He said it’s a common thing guys think about. I told him that even if a girl is busy, it’s still nice to get a call. Whether or not a girl like to be interupted by a guy is not the point.
Gentlemen, is it common for a guy to avoid calling a girl they like simply because he is trying to be courteous?
