So my boyfriend of like 4 months will end up calling me most days, sometimes late at night, just to talk. I'm always doing homework and he'll just be chilling at his place and it seems like he really doesn't even have much to say. A lot of times there will be an awkward silence even. Why does he do this? And he's always the one calling. I just find it odd. Like he's called me before when he was playing video games with his roommate just to chat or whatever, but then he won't really say much... Why does he do this?
It's kinda like a quiet guy or a phone-phobe being expected to call after a date. He's not naturally going to call, but it's the expectation, so he calls and gets all awkward.
But I don't think you're expecting this of him at all. He probably just wants some form of your presence. Normally I can feel fairly comfortable just being with a girlfriend with now exchange of words. It's just being around them that feels good, so we don't need to keep blabbing on about all sorts of things, just go about that part of our day together.
So it sounds like he's trying to gain your presence. So he tries over the phone, which he then realizes was a bad idea, and it kinda flops and gets awkward.
He likes hearing your voice. I used to do that too.
Work on becoming a good conversationalist. Come up with other topics to talk about when he runs out of things to say. You'll find you get better at it as time goes on and it helps when talking to new people, parties, etc.
perhaps to him it's like "being with you" I had an online girlfriend and we would chat and than after some time would *cuddle* and not talk for a while. if you two know each other in person you could try hanging out with him more often
It's probably because he likes to hear your voice. Since you two don't talk that much, then it's probably because he likes your company. He likes it when you're around. It's like that quote that says that silence is golden. Sure it's quiet, but one day, you might just remember those moments..
He just wants to hear your voice. He misses you and since he can't be with you at that moment the next best thing is hearing your voice. If it isn't interfering with your studies or any other aspect of your life I don't see why it would be a problem. He clearly is really into you if he calls you while he's playing his video games...with his friends. ...Because he actually wants to hear from you.
Do you realize how much he must like you if you're still on his mind while he's playing VIDEO GAMES...with his BUDDIES? Yeah, he's into you. He sounds like a really sweet boyfriend.
maybe he thinks its part of his duty as your boyfriend to call you and check up on you at night. even if he doesn't say much he probably at least enjoys hearing from you and giving him some time to talk with you
