I’m in a LDR. I text him and call him in the evenings, because it’s pretty much compensation for not being able to see him.
So I pretty much text him everyday, and it used to be so fun. Like I’d reply and he would text back 5 minutes later, and it would be thoughtful and such. But lately, since summer’s given him free time, he’s been on his xbox like 24/7. Seriously.
Yesterday, he got up and started playing, and when I called him at like 11pm ish, he was talking to his buddies WHILE on the phone with me until 1am, then he got off because he felt like he was ignoring me.
He always says that he’d choose xbox over me, and he wishes I was there, and that I mean more, but he’s just been on the damn thing every freakin day. It’s gotten so bad that he takes an hour or more to reply to a simple text like “how are you”.
I love him a lot and I wouldn’t break up with him over an xbox, but it’s getting on my nerves and makes me really angry. Yesterday was 2 months since we’ve been going out, and he didn’t mention anything about it. Today I asked if he wanted to talk over the phone; he said maybe later because of his xbox.
What the hell do I do.
I don’t want to tell him to ditch it because that’d make him sad (probably) and me feel guilty, but I just want him to at least take the time to text me more often than once every goddamned hour.
