I am new to this whole "living with employed partner" thing. So yeah. My partner got a job this Monday and he's pretty slack at communicating via the phone whereas I am pretty anxious about these type of things. We've been together for a year and 4 months, where about a year of that was long distance, so I know his lack of phone communication is nothing personal by now, but it still bugs the hell out of me. I told him to tell me when he would be late for work, especially on the nights I'm making dinner so I know when to cook and so that I don't freak out that he's dead or something.

Tonight he texted me he is going to be late. He's about an hour later than usual at this point. I have no idea what "late" is.

What kind of conversation did you have with your partner about this sort of thing? Should I be irked that he didn't specify? Should I have a more detailed conversation about that or would I then just be looked at being super needy and prying.

It should be noted that I'm currently unemployed, but I am volunteering, applying for jobs and schools, and writing in my free time. I also spent the ENTIRE day househunting for US, which is really stressful and he didn't rely to any of my questions concerning this during the day. This irks me too.
