My boyfriend calls and texts me everyday. As time goes on we communicate more, not less. The same goes for the boyfriend before that, and the one before him.
The truth is that most guys, not all but most, do not like to talk on the phone. We can talk for hours, similar to shopping, but they are more mission oriented. Like he said, he calls when he has something to say. He probably shops when he has something to buy. He get it and he leaves the store where as we might browse for hours. This is just a general rule but true.
Tell him how you feel, that you would like daily communication. Most girls do.
If someone really loves another person, they will seek them out and put the other person first. Love means wanting to make the other person happy and doing whatever it takes to help that person be the best they can be. Love is sacrificial, not selfish-- but that means forgiveness, too. If you love him, try to understand him and don't be too clingy if he doesn't like that. But that also means he should be wanting to spend time with you. I'd talk to him and try to find a balance. Hope that helps.
