You know that sicky feeling...

...When you know something's either gone very wrong or is about to?

Because DP is not answering his calls or texts, which is completely out of character, he ALWAYS has his phone with him and he NEVER ignores or doesn't reply to my messages.

I feel sick sick sick. I tried to ring and left a message but no call back.

I know there's nothing that you can say and nothing I can do (apart from don't ring him any more!) but I just can't believe I feel this feeling in the pit of my stomach.

what kind of thing do you think has happened? where is he? do you have a colleague/friend's number who can reach him?

Ewe Mon 01-Jun-09 22:11:40

FWIW every time I have felt like this it has always been me being neurotic and all has been fine!

worried27 Mon 01-Jun-09 22:11:41

no we don't live together. I am probably over reacting but this is usually what happens just before I am about to get dumped!!

I have a job int tomorrow and I haven't even been able to prepare because I just can't concentrate

TrinityRhino Mon 01-Jun-09 22:12:22

Rindercella Mon 01-Jun-09 22:12:32

Sorry you're feeling so worried.

What do you think has happened?

GypsyMoth Mon 01-Jun-09 22:13:15

Run out of charge? No signal?

TrinityRhino Mon 01-Jun-09 22:13:23

are your initials DM?

worried27 Mon 01-Jun-09 22:13:39

I am worried that either something is up and he is about to call it off, or wondering who he is with, where he is etc?

TrinityRhino Mon 01-Jun-09 22:13:56

sorry ignore me

worried27 Mon 01-Jun-09 22:15:24

No trinity...

I just feel panicky because it is SO out of the ordinary. I am sat here thinking and never, never, have I not heard from him in an evening. It's been about 4 months so still quite new but even so still out of character

Biglips Mon 01-Jun-09 22:15:34

worried - why are u gonna get dumped? have u had an argument? hope he will call yooouu soon

Rindercella Mon 01-Jun-09 22:16:05

Do you have any other reason(s) to suspect this Worried?

worried27 Mon 01-Jun-09 22:20:25

No, no argument, that's the thing, things have been fine. Maybe even an accident then, I am sat here so worried, what on earth is going on, I don't even know if he's ok.

Rindercella Mon 01-Jun-09 22:25:04

Is he meant to be with you this evening?

It's such a horrible feeling, I remember it from years ago. I really feel for you.

It sounds like if you have no other reason to suspect him, your DP may have left his mobile somewhere, or is in a bad signal area or something. Please try not to worry too much.

worried27 Mon 01-Jun-09 22:25:17

Ha has just text to say he will call in ten minutes.... this had better be good...

Biglips Mon 01-Jun-09 22:26:44

so hes not been in an accident then....all relieved now! and hope it will be good

bargainhuntingbetty Mon 01-Jun-09 22:27:46

Oh I hhope all isok

Rindercella Mon 01-Jun-09 22:27:52

Just a little word of caution here...when he calls, try your best not to ball him out about not calling. Also, try your best not to do the passive aggressive thing. Listen to his explanation & I am sure you will know whether or not you should believe him.

Let us know how it goes.

worried27 Mon 01-Jun-09 22:31:11

I will try not to but really I am feeling angry now, it takes no time at all to drop someone a text, and it's clear I have been getting more concerned (if that's the right word), so could he not have answered his phone?

I was supposed to be in bed now all ready for my interview but no I just feel sick still!!

Biglips Mon 01-Jun-09 22:34:03

try and be casual with him and good luck for tmrw's interview smile
