Why is his phone always off?

Hi guys,

Is it a normal thing for a guy to always have his phone off? Sometimes I end up calling my boyfriend over 50 times and he never answers his phone. I'm convinced Everytime his phone is off he is cheating. Am I overreacting?

  • I answer or reply when I am able or not even then. I do not spend all day looking at my phone. I do not live on my phone. I do not stop absolutely all activities just for a text or phone call. I get back to the message when I do. Some people, believe it or not, are similar. When I get spam called or texted I find it highly annoying and it keeps me from wanting to reply.

  • First of all girl, you need to confront him. Ask him things you may catch him out on to see if he's telling the truth. That's the only way you'll know

  • ... Maybe he didn't use to turn his phone off but realized it was a good idea somewhere along phone call 10 in that string of 50?

    I'm not absolutely saying he's NOT cheating, but I wouldn't take his lack of desire to answer the phone multiple times a day, by itself, as an indicator... Especially if he has a job. Guys genuinely don't need as much contact, in general, as women do to feel connected to someone.

    Put it this way, there's a reason that the stereotype of women as "nags" exists within male circles. Now, that doesn't give him carte blanche to just ignore your need for regular contact, but it does mean you need to understand this about guys and learn to negotiate with your man to get your needs met.

    Just as an example, you could try offering to not call him at work if he'll send you a text every couple of hours just to let you know he's thought of you. You could also offer to step up your game in meeting one of his needs in exchange for more contact, and acknowledge you're asking him to go a bit above and beyond with his availability. In all of this, make sure you listen to his responses and try to understand his side (such as the fact he may have very little control over his ability to call you when he's working for someone else). The more you listen, the more likely he is to listen to you about how you're craving more contact. The more you show a willingness to negotiate for your needs, the less they'll come across as demands.

  • Well, it really has only been the last 8 years or so when most people left them on. Before that, most people who had cell phones only turned them on a couple of times a day to check messages or to make a call. Unless they used them for work. Still, I have mine off probably 4 hours a day. I'm of a different generation though. It might be that he just doesn't like to have it on all the time.

  • no you are hovering and pestering. If my phone was incessantly ringing because my girlfriend has no boundaries I think I would silence or turn it off too!!

  • You're probably overreacting. In an age when too many people are on their phones too much, a person who can put it down and enjoy life in real time is special. You can learn from him. Oh, and don't call, or text, 50 times. Send one message, then wait for his reply. Anything more is just nutz.

  • Yes dear... You are over reacting... Keeping phone off does not necessarily mean he is cheating... You can ask him straightforward and if his reply satisfies you then no problem... Or buy him a new phone with a long lasting battery

  • Being completely honest here he probably is lazy and is just not answering it. And partially because he is getting tired of you calling him 50 times...

  • I think you should stop calling him. it is stalking not calling 50 times. give space in relationship otherwise there will b so much space created. And FYI if he is not picking your call unless his mobile has problems than he is not into u

  • I turn my phone on to make calls and then shut it off again. Believe or not, not everyone is glued to their phone. If I had a choice I wouldn't even own one.

  • It's not normal for a guy to have his phone off. However, have you thought that maybe you're calling him SO much that he turns it off to get a break from you calling him 50 times

  • Ok get that thought out your head. Trust me you can think it so much to the point you get so paranoid pushing your guy away and actually start thinking it himself. I say this knowing a lot in this subject in relationships. Even have experienced it. It can be so simple that he can't be arsed to charge his phone and sleeps a lot till he thinks he better get it charged or he can't be bothered with his phone going off a lot he just wants his time. I would say bring up the issue that you feel that he doesn't want to talk sometimes due to his phone being off but you worry about him and would just like to be able to talk through the day to make your feel safe. This will make him think more in pleasing you in having the security of being to talk with him when you need to.

  • Having it off all the time is kinda strange... But don't give him a reason to look for someone else while you worry. Pull yourself together and ask him when you two are alone. Maybe try some trust exercises because it seems it's lacking
