If you only get together at a sports bar and not outside that venue -- don't even want to get together outside that venue -- it doesn't sound like this is an ideal friendship. Be upfront and let him know you do not like talking on the phone. Half an hour is a lot of time wasted.This falls more into the "slightly annoying" category, but there's nowhere else to put it. I have a friend I've posted about in the COVID thread. Let's call him "Mark." Before the pandemic, Mark and I would watch a sporting event at a sports bar once a month. I've enjoyed that time, although he is not someone I would hang out in other contexts because we have little in common, even though he has suggested it. Mark enjoys talking on the phone with me for up to half an hour at a time. As an introvert, I dislike talking on the phone and particularly abhor taking phone calls at random times. Mark has called me several times this week and I have let the call go to voicemail (which he doesn't leave). I feel bad about this. I'm going to have to answer the phone at some point just to be polite even though I would rather not.
