What to Do When a Man Stops Calling

If you are dating a man you probably expect that the two of you will stay in pretty close contact. This is particularly true if you have an unspoken understanding that the relationship is exclusive. Unfortunately there are times when a woman finds herself in an odd position. She’s in a relationship that seemed to be going well and then all of a sudden the man drops out of sight. It’s difficult to know what to do when a man stops calling. Once you understand why men suddenly seem to forget your number, it’s easier to decide on an approach to take.

First you need to take stock of exactly where the relationship is. If you’ve only gone on one or two dates with a man and he doesn’t call you, you should take that to mean he’s not interested. Even if you had a fantastic time and you thought you two hit it off, you may just not be what he’s looking for. Chock it up to experience and move on. Never call a man initially after a first date. Regardless of what you’ve heard about men loving aggressive women, men want to make that first move if they enjoyed the date. Don’t call him thinking he misplaced your number or he was too busy. That’s not the case.

If you’ve been dating a man for a while and suddenly he stops calling, this is usually a completely different situation. When it comes to what to do when a man stops calling in this situation, you need to be very particular about your actions. Men often will not call a woman just to see how she’s going to react. If you call him up and ask him where he’s been or what he’s been up to, that’s the response he’s waiting for. He wants to see how emotional you are for one very important reason. It helps him to get a very clear picture of how you feel about him.

The best advice for what to do when a man stops calling after you’ve been dating for some time may surprise you. In no circumstances should you initiate contact with him. You need to do everything in your power to not call him first. When he does call be careful to not inundate him with questions about where he’s been. Instead keep the call brief and tell him you are in the middle of something. Make him wonder why you don’t seem to care that he’s been missing in action. This will keep him on his toes.
