If he’s not calling you, it’s because you are not on his mind. If he creates expectations for you, and then doesn’t follow through on little things, he will do same for big things. Be aware of this and realize that he’s okay with disappointing you. Don’t be with someone who doesn’t do what they say they’re going to do. If he’s choosing not to make a simple effort that would put you at ease and bring harmony to a recurring fight, then he doesn’t respect your feelings and needs. “Busy” is another word for “asshole.” “Asshole” is another word for the guy you’re dating. You deserve a fcking phone call.

Seventeen years ago I was given the assignment to make a portrait of an actor who was highly touted for his good looks and great acting ability. The photo eventually made the cover of People magazine. On Jan. 23, I was again given the task of photographing the same actor who has grown into, in my opinion, one of the top actors of his generation. Leonardo DiCaprio was gracious with his time and showed up early for the shoot — ready to go. With a few suggestions of what I needed, Leo took over the shoot, doing poses and expressions and made the entire session run like a well-oiled machine. And, at the end of the shoot, he thanked me and said, “It was good to see you after all these years!”
