Why do guys say this and then only end up texting you?
Most Helpful Guy
Because if it's earlier in the relationship, or you just met, calling can be much more nerve-racking. You can't just call without anything planned to say because then there's just a ton of silence and stumbling and the whole conversation is awkward. At least for me, early on, I am very meticulous about everything I say to the girl, so I'd rather text, where I can think about what to say and form it without being rushed, than call, where I'm rushed to think of something to say or have to prepare several things in advance.
I also find that when there's no definite time to call "later," a lot of girls will be with their friends when you call them, and those calls are always a disaster because they're being distracted and so you have to repeat things a lot. If I call, I want either full attention, or for the girl to say "Hey, I'm with my friends, can I call you back later? You can still text me if you'd like"--something like that.0
