Questions and Answers

My boyfriend takes hours to reply?

I am dating a professor, and he sometimes takes forever to reply to me. I feel sad and ignored about it. Is there a percentage that he is cheating on me? Please answer.


There are people who regard the hand-held devices as tools, not as conversation means that should be used every time as soon as you receive a call or message. Using smartphones for these people happens only when they are not preoccupied with their vocation or are not working. Answering often distracts people from reading, studying, and working too; so, you should not feel ignored. He will answer when he has time (and some of professors do have little time even for sleeping!)

As to answer your last question, there is always a chance that he is enamoured of another person. Please see our articles that might help your situation as well:

Divorced for 10 years - does he still love her?

He has been divorced for 10 years and he still lives in their family home and it is like it was the day she left. He will not throw anything out, move anything. He still has major connections with her family. Will he ever make room for me?. I have tried: Tried to ignore her stuff and wait for him to realize he loves me and then he will throw it out. I think it was caused by: I think he blames himself for their marriage breakdown

I don't know? I am disgusted with myself, first for reading a text. It was an honest mistake, in the beginning but as I read I found I wanted to know more. I love this man and have been his friend for 25 years, never known him to be unfaithful. However this woman has a hold on him. My pain is unceasing and he hasn't even dealt w it. He was so angry about me looking at the text, I don't know how to make him understand how much pain I'm in?

I'm not sure if he feels the way he seemed to a few months ago. We have been friends for many years, he gave me purpose, made me feel alive again. I never felt so loved. I've done nothing but care for him in this relationship, I don't know what I've done to deserve this!
