The Question Club
My boyfriend is currently abroad in Europe, and I am in the states. Last Saturday, he went on a trip to visit older-generation extended family and was internetless for a few days, and on Thursday, when he got back, he messaged me on skype and gchat. I was in a pissy mood, so I didn't reply to either summons. The next day, I find, due to the fact that I have a secondary AIM screen name that no one knows about with a duplicate buddy list, that he has blocked my primary screen name on AIM. He has not, however, blocked me on skype. Yet when I send him a message, he doesn't reply. Granted, it is 1 am on a Friday night and he's the sort who leaved his internet on whether he's there or not, so I figure fine, he might be out. He does have an "away" sign on. Then I attempt to talk to him on skype again the next day at 10 pm his time (perhaps more reasonable, although it is Saturday and he might, again, be out), and he doesn't respond. |
How reasonable is it to assume that it's over between us? If it is, why would he block me on one medium of chat and not another? We have had problems about a month ago, as we were of different minds as to where the relationship is and where it should be going, but since then we've resumed our normal level of communication, and had been chatting online and on video several hours a day, until his trip this week.
Should I 1) continue trying to talk to him on skype, 1a) tell him, on skype, that I know he blocked me on aim and ask him, point-blank, what the deal is, 2) IM him on AIM with a different screen name, 3) call him at home 4) do nothing and move on.
