You Will Need
- Positive reinforcement
Be assertive. Guys respond to directness, so don't hint that you'd like a call every now and then. Even a simple, "It'd be great if you called me this afternoon to go over our plans for the evening" will work.
Give positive reinforcement
Give him positive reinforcement when he does get around to dialing. Sound happy to hear from him and you'll train him to love giving you a ring instead of dreading it.
Keep it short
Keep the conversation brief – 10 minutes or less, and keep it light. Chances are, neither of you wants to get bogged down in endless chitchat.
Understand that many men like texting or e-mailing because they can seem funnier or smarter if they can proofread their thoughts. If he sounds awkward during the call, let it go.
Have a last resort
Call him as a last resort. He may follow suit and call you back.
