I have a friend who gives miscalls and never calls and just continue to talk for long time when I call back. I am sick of that. I think if the person want to talk he or she should have called and most times won't call and just give miss calls. What should I do? Should I stop calling back the person?

Are you sure its them hanging up on you and not you not being able to get to your phone in enough time? I mean I've had friends who it takes forever for them to pick up their phone so its almost always a miss call from me. But in a sense - if it is your fault that its a miss call you can't really complain about having to call them back. And you don't have to be on the phone with them for hours. Once you're done talking just be like hey I have a really busy day, I'm going to have to go and then get off. Don't complain if you haven't been proactive about the situation - because then its just a complaint about you being a whiner.

Sometimes I call back think it is important and finds they talk casually or to talk about their problems for hours.

I am not one to talk on the phone. I have missed calls alot of times too but I will call them back at my convenience. I hate to sit on the phone for hours though. That wastes alot of my precious time and ties my phone line up for my computer also. I would stop calling back though.

I also think it is a waste of time especially when we call back on people who gives us miss calls. I think we should call at our convenience.

I think you should tell the person off the next time he/she does this. I mean word it nicely but get the message across. I don't call back if I do not know the number or I would see my cell phone who is it that missed call me. If it's my family members, I would call back. If it's friends. I would sometimes call back but mostly I would not. Because if it's that important, the person will call back.

I also agree that the person will call back if it is important.

Its totally your fault, dont call back. If he got as much important to discuss he will call you by himself. If there is a girl as your friend and you are in an affair then i must say that you have to pay something to get something. I hope you got understand.

This is definitely a user. She has realised that you are keen on her friendship and is taking advantage of it. However, every time you answer her miscall, you simply reinforce her behaviour. You will not get her acting any differently if you don't change how YOU react. If you keep doing the same thing, she will just continue to give you what you have always got. So it is not up to her at all. People will only change when you change because they cannot treat you the same as before. Furthermore, if you are sick of it, you have to ask yourself why you keep doing it? Are you seeking her approval? Hoping to be real friends when she obviously just wants someone to listen to her and at THEIR expense? Time for some self-respect if you are to be treated with any respect from her. Should you stop calling her back? Of course you should. Otherwise, how else is she going to act differently? Just don't call her a few times and see what she does. She seems to be on to a good thing to me and only you can change it.

I think I should stop calling back. I think I am allowing to take lots of advantage on friendship.

Most times we think that the other person might have less balance and might return the call when they do have balance, but most times it is not the case and sometimes it makes us feel sad.
