    @LittlePumpkin:  Aww sounds as if you had an amazing time! DH and I do love each other’s company. When we’re home, we’re usually in the same room even though we may be doing separate things. The only exception is sometimes he stays up a little later to play his video/computer games, and I go to bed. However, we aren’t joined at the hip. Though we do go out together there are times where I go out with my friends separately and he does the same. We also work in separate fields, and he’s currently three states away for work so that also gives us some autonomy. I miss him but we do a great job of texting and emailing throughout the day, and we always make sure to Facetime each other at night regardless of how busy we are. So to answer your question, we are very go with the flow.

    We are close but not like his parents. the seriously never go anything without each other. I do enjoy my alone time and he does to. But there are some days when you just need each other..only lol. But he works out of town a lot so we just try to be close when we can. I actually go out without him often. hes out of town all summer and i have friends that want to hang out. hes always working then. Plus is family is large and always wants us over. But we like to stick to ourselves if they let us get away with it.  come winter and we are like little bunnies though. some times there are times where i need to hang with just my best friend and he needs to kill more fake guys on the PS3. He says some times we dont always have to be doing the same thing together but just being in the same room is conferting to him. We dont PDA very much but are very passionate alone. 😀 I always feel like we are bottling it up to explode later. TMI? sorry lol

    @LittlePumpkin:  He’s my best friend and top priority, and he feels the same way about me. If we have free time, we are together. We text throughout the day when we are both able to, and I tell him absolutely everything.

    If all of that wasn’t the case, I can’t imagine myself marrying him.

    @princessggg:  +1. My parents are the same way and I think we subconsciously modeled our relationship after theirs. We have no interest in going anywhere separately. Neither of us would say no if the other wanted to, but it hasn’t come up.

    We are very clingy people. Put two clingy people together… that means we do almost everything together (except when our jobs divide us).

    I think… he’s not only the best thing that’s ever happened to me, but he’s also the funnest thing that’s ever happened to me. We always have fun together and being apart sucks.

    We’re best friends and he is a big part of my career.  He is my professional support system & the major part of my team.

    On his days off, we do most things together.  We’re not at all clingy, we’re both self contained units who do fine on our own.  We just like doing things together.

    We spend a good amount of time with each other, but we also have our own friends and own interests, so we definitely don’t do everything together. We also don’t engage in PDA and don’t talk cutesy to each other, especially in public.

    We pretty much do everything together.  Last night I even went with him to run a simple errand.  I wouldn’t have gone though, probably, if he hadn’t asked if I wanted to come with him, lol. 

    We primarily keep to ourselves and for the most part I think we prefer it that way.  If we feel like being social we go to the bar, lol.  We’re also always holding hands and smooching in public as well. 🙂

    I voted other. We’re LD so we aren’t physically close to each other. But our spirits are very connected. We both think about each other all the time and we can tell. We talk as often as possible and of course when we’re together we’re inseparable.

    My husband is my best friend, so we do everything together.  While he is at work, he will call/text me throughout the day, and when he’s not working we are always with each other.

    We’re super close.   It’s weird – in my past, disfunctional relationships, I always dated guys that were jerks and some that weren’t that into me.   So I constantly justified those crappy relationships as “Oh – we don’t need to do everything together in order to say we love each other!” and I just told myself this over and over even though deep down I was never satisfied and always felt like I was missing out.  

    Now i’m with my FI and he actually wants to do almost everything with me.   It is SO. MUCH. FUN.  I’m very lucky.

    Jesus – that sounds bad – that’s not to say that those that do have that kind of outlook on a relationship means it’s crappy.   If you both mean it then it’s fine.  It’s just that I thought I was one of those people.   I was just fooling myself.

    We are 110% best friends (and have been for about 15 years!), absolutely love spending time together, and are very verbally and physically affectionate – BUT, due to the nature of our jobs and also our independent spirits / differing hobbies, we spend quite a bit of time apart as well.  It’s kind of the best of both worlds, I’d say.

    We are definitely the best of friends. We love to spend time, whether with other friends, couples, or alone. We love to try new things and also welcome things that the other brings into the relationship. I love my SO!!!!
