My neighbors called this afternoon and I picked up the phone as the answering machine picked up the call. I called them back and left a message to call me because I just missed the call. They did not call back today. I usually call them every other day and tomorrow is my day to call. I would have just called back today if I were them, I feel I should be certain when is too often to call. Can you tell me if some steps have been missed in this relationship? Or is it something I should know from past experience? Isn't that kind of a weak basis for a relationship, how can it be strengthened as it is important? I have had a cousin who did not like so many emails and my sister did not like talking to me on the phone, when nothing was really wrong. What to do if people won't tell you how they feel or if they like my cousin and sister do not want to relate to you or seem too picky when there isn't anything wrong or don't bother to relate in an effective manner, there is a lot of effort but maybe they don't know how to connect or think they don't and just do better with others, I don't know what it is. What is it? Need to add this: I am thinking about
whether to call them tonight if I don't hear from them,
or wait until tomorrow. Normally I would be able to
just call or not and know, but I have had some
experience with people who do not do that like
I have always thought. I would always call more or
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX say that in a normal relationship the person/people would just call back to
say what it was or leave a message and say that they needed to talk later? Should
something have happened other than what did, I am assuming that it
maybe did not have to, but what is it?
If they are really busy, can people be too busy for that, are they usually, any suggestions about
how to keep from having the calling be a problem? They already said it was OK, but
any way to insure it is, is this all in your answer earlier? If so, good, then any
suggestions on how to build trust?
Not always, some times people do not leave any messages because they just have intentions on calling back, so they don't leave a message. Some times people just do not like leaving messages, they would just rather call back.
I feel you handled things very well.
Some times people are so busy they have trouble just sitting down to have a conversation. People work long hours or they have so many things they have to catch up on some times making time is hard. People often set time aside these days like actually setting time aside to call people back.
They had said it was ok, so that means everything is fine.
Yes, You can build trust by being there and listening to things that are going on in there life even if it is something small.
People often like to talk about things that are going on in there life and giving positive messages is always a good thing to help them and be supportive of what is going on in their lives.
It shows them that you care.
and that you want to share in their lives.
