I’ve always been curious about this because my relationships have varied. Even when I’m just sort of seeing someone, I can kind of gauge if they’re into me based on how often we talk. I know this sounds really stupid, but when my SO doesn’t text me for a few days, I get anxious. I’d never mention it because I don’t want to seem clingy… I guess it’s just concerning when I’m not talking to him because I don’t know what he’s thinking, what he’s up to… you know.
So, how often do you and your SO text each other? Are you in an LDR or just across town?

When my husband and I were pre-engagement I think we had a phone call every night I wasn’t with him. We aren’t into texting.

everyday. We don’t live together but we live 5 minutes from each other so we also spend many nights at each others apts. To each his own, I know not all couples see each other that often.
It sounds like you are in a LDR from your post? I do not have any experience with that if that is what you are looking for.

My FI is deployed right now and he emails me every day and we FB chat pretty consistently during the first half of the day until he has to go to bed. Prior to the deployment (we also live together), and texts were consistent throughout the day. Prior to engagement and when we lived 3 hours away from each other, we spoke every day (with texts and FB mixed in there). In the beginning (we met through a mutual friend), he lived several states away and we were just FB friends with sporadic FB chats.

oh I misread the post…we don’t text each other that often since we spend so much time together in person!

We don’t live together, but live about 5 minutes apart and spend on average 4-5 nights a week together.
We always speak every day; he usually texts me mid-morning when he knows I’ll be up, then we talk via text message and short phone calls throughout the day.
When we’re actually together, we talk quite a lot too; we go to the pub or for dinner about twice a week which I love, as it gives us lots of proper quality time together without distractions (like the TV etc), and we often debate things, or have a good bitch about people we know, or share any new gossip lol.
Talking is really important to me personally. I wouldn’t say either of us is clingy (far from it in fact); I just think that talking is a normal part of a relationship you know? I’d find it weird if I went days without speaking to him, or if our time together was filled with silence (not that there’s anything wrong with silence, sometimes we do do our own thing eg I’ll be reading for uni while he’s watching TV and I think it’s good to be comfortable with silence and not desperately trying to fill it; but constant silence would be weird for me)

My husband and I have been married for eight years and we still have meaningful conversations with each other everyday in addition to several calls and text.
We are communicators! 🙂

We live together now, but before that we would talk everyday. On the rare occasion I didn’t see him in person, like when he was out of town for business, we would text and email back and forth throughout the day. If I didn’t hear from him for a whole day I’d be worried he was dead or something.

My FI and I don’t live together, and we are both extremely busy with our university studies (particularly at this time of year!), but even at that, if we don’t see each other in person, we exchange at least a few texts every day.

We’re now engaged and living together but I’m pretty sure we’ve always talked or texted at least once every day (we moved really fast though). I think in previous relationships it was probably more texting than talking, although usually still every day, even if just to say hi.

We live together now but when we were LDR last year we talked everyday mostly over the phone but occasionally skyping or just online in general. I could never go more than a day without talking to him!

Before we lived together we talked and/or saw each other everyday. We only lived 5 minutes apart though so we saw each other often and on the days we didn’t see each other one of us would call the other. There was no texting back then. 😉

When we were long distance we texted a lot, and usually spoke on the phone every night. We tried to video chat as often as we could, but it wasn’t every night. However, we generally texted throughout the day.

I think my FI is outside the norm, he calls me all the time, even when we were dating. Usually as soon as he’d get out of work when we were dating he’d call on his way home just to say hi, and we email during the day everyday. He also calls on his lunch break just about everyday. He’s not clingy at all, he just likes to call and say hi. It’s one of my favorite things about him. We’ve lived together for over a year now and even in all that time he still calls at lunch and after work even though we’ll see each other in less than 10 minutes lol. I used to feel bad because I’m not the type of person that calls anyone ever and he was always the one to do the calling but now it’s just the norm of our relationship. I don’t have to call, I know he will! 🙂

We talk and text all the time. We live together so we see each other all the time, but even before we lived together, we were together almost every night. We text each other probably dozens of times throughout the day, depending. If we’re apart or he’s working out of town we will be on the phone a couple times. Even if my SO is out doing errands for a while he will call or text just to say hi and share with me his adventures.
It’s not a control thing… we just are always sharing the details of our days with each other. Just something we’ve always done naturally.
