This is raising all kinds of red flags for me. But that's me.
I understand your point of view, but I don't think that's because he doesn't care about me at all. I would have behaved the same way. As I wrote somewhere else, I am a kind of person concentrating on one thing and forgetting about everything else. And so is he too. If someone called me telling my grandmother had a heart attack, I would immediately forget about everything else and jump into the first train. If I had an appointment that day, I would not call, even if there are three phones in the house. I wouldn't think of it. It's not that this appointment is not important or that I don't care about this person. Really not. It's just that I am not able to think of it in that moment. When I'm busy with some strong emotional issue, I don't remember the rest of the world. Everything vanishes till this one situation is solved. Well and he had big family drama those three days, so I understand that he didn't think of calling me. He's very emotional in his way to behave, getting angry or happy or whatever very fast and forgetting about everything else in that moment. Just like I am too, that's why I understand him. That's just the way he is.
