Whenever he doesn't call or text you back, it can drive you CRAZY. Ugh. In these scenarios, it can be challenging to determine what to do. The confident part of your brain wishes to believe something occurred, like his phone died or he's truly, really busy with other things or maybe your phone is broken and the text simply didn't go through. Then there's that miserable part of your brain that is envisioning the outright worst, and feelings of rejection surface. How do you deal with the vanishing man? Exactly what do you do? Well, for starters, read these tips. They'll help, we promise.
