I agree that *just* not knowing the travel info or *just* not getting a text from him isn’t necessarily fishy, it’s the two together that don’t add up. At least in my experience, international/out of network travel/phones that die easily is even MORE good reason to always exchange travel information! If she knew what hotel he was staying in, she could at least call there and leave a message.
IDK, maybe all the anti-terrorism training I have to take prior to travel has me overlyprecautious, but situations like this are quite avoidable.

Aww well you know him best. I hope that he’s ok! Keeping fingers crossed.

I definitely agree.
Best case scenario, it’s a great “lesson learned” for OP and her Fiance. I will tell you that I have spent the past few minutes putting together my travel details for the next few weeks for my husband…so it was a lesson learned for me!

OP, I would be beside myself with worry, but as other posters have said, I would also not have let him leave without letting me know where he was staying, flight details, etc. I have my fingers crossed for you that there’s a simple explanation for it all…! Let us know when you hear anything 🙂

Good idea to start! I’ve had very last minute trips where I’m literally sitting in the airport waiting for a flight, texting DH my travel info haha.
There’s so much more to consider than just the plane crashing – obviously that’s not terribly likely. What’s (sadly) far more likely is an act of terrorism, a natural disaster, kidnapping, accidents, theft, the list goes on. Like they say, luck favors the prepared!

Too many hours have passed. SO, Fiance or DH….If you are in a relationship, and you care about one another, you let each other know your traveling plans. Hell, my XDH still gives me his itinerary when he leaves town incase something comes up with the kids! It’s common courtesy. Hotels DO have phones, next to the beds, that he could pick up and say “Hey, my phone is dead, quick call to let you know I’ve arrived safely”.
Doesn’t take that much effort to do so.

This is daily life for me. My husband is an aircrewman and when he deploys (Or even flies on a day to day basis) I will not hear from him until much, much, much later on. It worried me at first but then I realized he wasn’t dead when nobody was contacting me and there were no planecrashes.
You have the ability to call his phone, I don’t have that luxury. All of his electronics need to be off until he is free from work, so I don’t get a “I’m fine. Call later” text.
So, for me this is normal and I’d probably give it until tomorrow to freak out, but like I said, this is normal for me and I’ve become desensitized to it.

He left at 4 AM on Tuesday and it’s now been over a day since you heard from him? I would be incredibly suspicious. A dead cell phone doesn’t take that long to charge. It honestly sounds to me like he doesn’t *want* to be in touch.

I don’t know if I’d be suspicious (annoyed that he didn’t leave any information), but I’d definitely be worried. It really could be anything though (i.e. not getting service, can’t find his charger, lost phone, etc). Hopefully he will touch base with you soon.

Any word? Hope he’s okay!

Keep us posted! More than likely it’s a perfectly reasonable explanation.

I travel for business and my DH rarely knows my flight and hotel info. But I would never not call him within 24hrs. I know he would be freaked out if that happened. I always text him as soon as I land and I wouldn’t even think to go to bed without calling and saying goodnight.
I hope you hear from him soon! I would be worried out of my mind.
Post # 59
Ah I feel like I’m stressing like this is my FI! I’m so worried for you!

Next time I would tell him to make sure he calls, whenever I fly anywhere or drive on a long trip I always text DH to let him know I am safe. Something does sound fishy though, even if his phone died he could call you collect or from hotel. Plus you have no flight or hotel info, that’s kind of suspicious.

i’m super curious to know if he’s ok & what the deal is. there’s been a few times where i get crazypants when FI’s phone is either in a vehicle, dead, or he went to sleep. But he was never on the other side of the country. I couldn’t deal! Update pahhhleeeaazzeeee
