I don't know about the other guys here but I screen my calls as well. Sometimes there's really just one person I'm interested in talking to and if you're not that person you're not getting a hold of me. Leave a message I'll listen to it and decide if I need to get back to you.

here is why:

Men tend to view phones as a tool. Guys don't call people up just to chat, there is always a purpose. "Lets meet up at x at 7pm, be sure to bring y, etc..." that's also why guys don't tend to send large text messages either. Seldom will a guy ever spend more than 5 minutes talking to another guy on the phone.

Unless they're emo, then they have other problems.

Girls don't view phones the same way. They'll call up just to talk - nothing constructive. And the conversations tend to either be mind numbingly boring or get way to serious for a phone call. Either way, the conversations are typically long. No wonder most guys don't answer the phone when a girl calls - it means they're about to lose a serious chunk of time and likely get themselves in trouble by not saying the magic words.

If a girl wants to have a long conversation, I'd just as soon take her to dinner or go to a coffee shop or something and have a nice long conversation. The phone is just for quick conversations, unless there is an extreme distance between us.

^^Hate to admit it, but he's right. Phone calls should have a purpose, though I don't mind chatting if someone has something interesting to tell. If someone seems to feel the need to have a longer conversation, I usually suggest to meet, because it's much
nicer to talk that way.

All the guys I know pick up the phone

I usually lie on my bed when I'm at home doing nothing, so I'm usually too lazy to answer the phone.

I answer my phone most of the time, unless I'm tired....or don't feel like talking, unless your special to me then I'll answer 99.9% of the time

My BF normally answers the phone unless he's at work. I think his problem is not answering the phone but actually having a conversation longer than 10 minutes.

From my point of view, I can talk for a long time, but when I get together with that person, theres not really that much to talk about. Then again, my past relationship, my ex girlfriend never called or talked to me. Only when I call, thats when she'll talk. On my b-day, I waited the whole day for her to wish me a happy b-day, but noooooo, she said "oh yeah, Happy b-day" when I messaged her online. -.- Lammmee...
