Tonya,

I agree with you. You are not overreacting at all. I am impressed you were able to put off breeching the subject. I guess you should just start by explaining that you understand that you can’t expect to hear from him while he is on the line and that you understand it was a disappointing trip for him, but that you are very hurt by how inconsiderate he has been over the past weekend. If he reacts poorly, well that could be a bad sign. If he is a good guy he should understand that you were worried and apologize. I don’t mean to be harsh, but I know from my own experience that sometimes a person can forgive unacceptable behavior too quickly because they want a relationship to work out, so maybe you need to say to him “look, this is what it means to be in a relationship and you are either in or you’re out. If I am going to give, you have to too.” Explain that you understand that being the girlfriend of a FF requires you to put up with a lot that other women don’t have to put up with, but that means he shouldn’t make it any harder than it already is.

Good luck!
