Resolved Question:

DearDebra,



What should I do? He's in France and he never answers calls when abroad. I texted him this morning cause I had introduced him to a friend of mine who wanted his cell number for work. So I texted him informing him about this.He replied that he would contact him when he'd be back. What should I do? Just wait for him to text me.Will he? Should I text that all this is agony and if he feels good about it. Please help and tell me if we'll make it up and manage to get it out of him
