@LadyBlackheart:  why not call him if it’s important. FB chat is a pretty casual medium and not where I would try to have an in depth conversation.

@LadyBlackheart:  Bad morning? I personally think you’re overreacting.

It’s just a casual convo on facebook.

Why cant you call him? And if you knew he was watching Netflix and wouldn’t be responsive… why would you try?

@LadyBlackheart:  This is the problem with chatting or texting, if it is an important conversation you need to CALL.  Or wait until you see him in person.

@LadyBlackheart:  I agree with PP. Even if it was on skype (but not video), I’d say the same thing. If you have to talk about something that needs his undivided attention, then it makes sense to call or tell him that you need to talk to him.

This situation sounds like when my boyfriend is watching sports and I sit next to him and tell him stuff while he says “uh huh…oh really…okay…no way” while barely paying attention to me.

If it is so important I agree with the PP call him.

I think this is the big difference between generations.  FB chat and texting is available 24/7 but I don’t necessarily want to converse with someone (event he love of my life) 24 hours, 7 days a week.  I like to save some of my thoughts and stories for when we actually see each other.  When sending a text message or FB chat be prepared to not get an immediate answer and then you won’t be as disappointed and feel like you’re being ignored.

I do this every single time a friend emails, g-chats, or FB-chats me. I basically lose interest and walk away for 30+ mins, then remember and come back to the convo. Whoops.
Get me on the phone and I’m much more likely to pay attention, even pause my movie to chat!

I think talking on the phone is a better way to communicate. If FB chatting doesn’t really work, then why bother with it in the first place? 🙂  

You could be spending that time on Pinterest!! 😀
