'My boyfriend does not reply to my SMSes'

May 30, 2013, 01:46 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I am a 21-year-old old postgraduate student in love with a 25-year-old guy. We are both from Vashi and get along really well.

The only problem is he doesn’t reply to my texts as quickly as I do. He doesn’t even take my calls when he is in office. It’s always me who keeps in touch with him during the day time. He always says he is tied up with work. I think he has started taking me for granted. But when we are together, he’s most caring and loving.

Dear Ranjini,
Good heavens! You seem to be a control freak. When your guy is in office, it might not be possible for him to take your calls and reply to your SMSes. You have to understand that he is at work. You are still a student so you have more free time at your disposal. He cannot be answering your every text message and calls especially if you are on an overdrive. There is no question of taking you for granted as you clearly say when you are with him, he is the best guy around. So may be next time message him during his lunch hour or coffee break, perhaps then he can take your call. You are creating a problem when there isn’t any.

Diana will solve it!
