Yesterday my bf went out with the boys, they were gonna play some cards and have a few beers. I asked him if he would be late and he said No, but if I will be I will call you. Said and done, at 11 at night he called and said that he will stay another hour. No problem!!! He came home at 2.45. See my problem is not that he was late - my problem is that he didn´t call and let me know. He knows that i worry, mostly because of my past and i do not think that it is to much to ask for, for him to lift the phone and dial home. He thinks i am beeing silly - but I just don´t get why it should be so hard =) Anyways, he said that he lost track of time - so what is it with men and time???

I think it happens with every one more or less. Most men are like that only. But some are there exceptional. I saw some men how they run from parties or any informal gettogether because their wife/girlfriend will worry or they will scold them. But basically men don't care much about while their wife or girlfriend will be worried and will be waiting for them. Actually men are less sensitive then women, may be this is a main reason of this phenomenon.

I hate to be gender specific, but I think that this is a "male thing". It's good that he called and told you that he was going to be late. That shows that he understands and respects how you feel. He just needs to take it a step further and realize that there is a big difference between being home by midnight and wandering in at almost 3 am. Suggest to him that he tries to be just a little bit more aware of the time; I could see if he was even an hour later than he had planned, but how do you lose track of time for 3 hours? I have had the same battles with my boyfriend. He is getting better, but he still does this at times and sees nothing wrong with it.
