Whenever he calls me or I call him, unless it is urgent, he never hangs up first. I always hang up first no matter how long we have talked. Is this a good thing? So how do I know when to end a call without looking annoying and dragging on unnecessarily (I do that often with a lot of friends)?
"I'm going to get off the phone now." dragging on a call until something else "comes up" isn't necessary anymore. My ex would say that to me, i'd say it to her. No need in making excuses either... sure the laundry needs to get done, but you dont need to state so just to say goodbye.
