    i had to think about this… and then i rang him to fake a conversation.  we dont always finish with a bye but it could be a “gotta go” or “talk later” but we always say i love you

    He always closes with something so I know the conversation is done or will return the whatever I say. I consider it basic conversation skills.

    Yeah, we both usually say, “love ya, bye!” 

    Whenever he calls me he tells me it’s him, though.  Like, I’ll answer saying “hi babe, how are you?”  He says, “hey baby it’s me”  Um… yes… I was aware, thanks… hehe, boys. 🙂

    @BlueDolphin: Mr.ND never used to because his family doesn’t. I always feel super awkward calling his folks, because it’s lalallaalaEND. No goodbyes. So I told him that my family is much different, we’re very affectionate, we always hug and kiss goodbye and always say love you when we leave or on the phone.

    It took him a while to get used to, but he realized that it meant a lot to me to hear that from him, and now he likes to say it/hear it. He’ll even call back if he forgets, haha.

    I always say “I love you, bye bye” and he imitates me sort of haha. No matter what he’ll always say I love you and then some form of goodbye. When we were first dating we would do the whole “you hang up first” “no you hang up first” type thing, but now we just say bye to save time 😉

    He says “I love you” and then “bye baby”.

    If it really bothers you, can you not talk to him about it? Not in a nagging sort of way, but curious sort of way?

    We both always say some sort of “bye, love you” before hanging up the phone.

    Why don’t you talk to your SO about it, expecially if it is something that bothers you?  Or, you can try saying it first and see if he reciprocates.

    We’re also in the “love you, bye” camp. We never just hang up and we never have.

    I’d definitely talk to him about it. I bet he doesn’t even think about it, that’d drive me crazy lol

    He used to just hang up, and it bothered me too. I had to talk to him and say ‘Listen, I’m not one of your ‘bro’s’. You say goodbye when you hang up.’ Ever since then he’s been good about it 🙂

    I voted Other since we always say “Love you” before hanging up, sometimes it’s with a “bye” but sometimes not.

    lol I’m giggling about this because Fiance always says “love you bye,” but there have been a few times where he’s just hung up after saying love you and it ticks me off but I have no idea why!!!  He also doesn’t say hello when he’s calling people he’ll just say “Is so and so there?”  That REALLY bugs me for some reason, I think because it sounds rude.

    Yep. we vary between I love you and bye.

    He usually says “ok-bah” really fast.
