My girl friend tells me she is busy at work and cant text me.

Customer Question

My girl friend tells me she is busy at work and cant text me. She said her phone is in a different room and only has access to it on breaks. Her break has changed from 30 min to 1 hr and she contacts me less then before. I called her at work today on her cell and she answered her phone in 2 rings. It was a big suprise to me. She never responded to me like today after I called and found she had her phone with her. She texted me at the end of the work day today and asked me how my day went. I texted back it was good. I then texted would you like to talk on the phone and asked if she had eaten dinner. She said she needed to eat dinner and would call when she was done. Then she called 30 min later and was taking a bath. After about 20 min of talking she said she has to go because she has things to do and she needs to eat dinner. Now she told me earlier she would eat then call. Whats up with this. And she never will commit to a set time when she will call. She ended the call with I'll talk to you later. I dont know if later means tonight or when for that matter. I said ok and we both said good bye. I'm feeling lost.
