My boyfriend calls me pretty often, like after he gets off work or after he gets out of class, but he only has one thing to say to me and I don't have anything to say back but "okay" most of the time, and then we just sit there in silence for 5 minutes before he finally says goodbye. Like today, first he texted me about his final grade in a class and then two seconds later he called me and told me he hasn't eaten anything since lunch yesterday and asked me what I was going to do today and that was it.
I really don't understand why he feels he has to call me. He texts me like 5 page texts all the time too so it's not like he has some aversion to texting. I don't really want to be mean and tell him to stop calling me about stupid crap, I just wish I could understand why he does this

The phone call was a hint to you, asking you to dinner, he is just being more subtle about it. Smart guy. You guys are young, used to talk on the phone a lot with some of my past girlfriends too, just something that happens if you can't see the other very often. Sometimes just hearing the voice can be nice from time to time too. It may seem stupid to you, but think it over, don't you do something similar back?
You know those jokes on TV where the woman is talking his ear off? That may seem a joke for the show/commercial but its actually true. A good relationship is about listening, that also helps you learn about the person, more details. So he didn't eat lunch, suggest you two go out. Talk about your day back to him, he's feeling like you don't care about what happens in this relationship and before long, he will feel pushed away and leave you. Listen to the inane things, comment back with something other than "okay" think of something similar that happened to you and let the words flow.
In the end it is no different than what women do to some guys and just talk their ear off about things guys thinks are stupid. Same idea, different gender...he wants to feel apart of the relationship.0
