Do you and your sweetie keep in touch throughout the day? Do you speak during the day or do you wait until you get home at the end of the day to talk? If you do speak during the day, how? Phone, text, email, chat, facebook?
The Hubs and I drive to/from work together. During the day, we’ll usually check in with one another 2-3 times, either via text, email or Gmail chat.

We talk alot during the day, probably too much since we are supposed to be working. Id say on the phone we probably talk about 5 times a day during work (more if another call comes through and I have to call him back), we text alot and sometimes I will send him an email. I have a bad short term memory so I will call him each time I think of something so I dont forget it later. Thats a lot of phone calls or texts 🙂

He gets annoyed if I call him too much during the day, but is sad if i don’t at least text him. 🙂 I try to keep it at a happy medium!

We usually don’t talk too much during the day. We’re both at our busy peaks at different times during the day. But we will call/text/e-mail if something is up.

Off and on through email all day. We like saying hi.

We’re also off and on through email for part of the day. It depends on how busy we are! We’ll talk to each other at least once on the phone.

We don’t talk during the day as he is too busy and even if I did call him he wouldn’t hear his phone ringing. He usually calls when he’s on the way home.

We talk at least a couple times a day on the phone while we are at work, usually one of us calls to say good morning since he is usually out the door before I wake up. Then usually once at lunch and depending on how busy or bored we get at work we’ll talk a third time in the afternoon. Occassionally we text, but mainly it is a phone call!!

We rarely talk on the phone during the work day unless it’s something very important. We used to talk a LOT via gmail chat — but realized after a while that we were a) bugging each other too often; b) not getting our work done!; and c) didnt have much to talk about at the end of the day … now we check in throughout the day and send each other links (to houses or jobs to apply for) but try to keep the real "talking" for when we are in person.

We send each other texts during the day and talk when we can but he can’t always talk on the phone with his job so I always look forward to getting home 🙂

We text anywhere from 1-20 times a day. It depends on how busy he is at work. And sometimes he calls me when he is on his lunch hour.

My guy sends me a sweet text every morning (he goes to work before I’m even awake), calls during his lunch break, and then he calls when he gets home. We live in seperate states right now though, so we’re a bit excessive and Skype together every night!

I’ve always wondered how other couples handle this, too.
My fiance and I like to try and e-mail each other at least once a day, just to say hi. I dunno, it kind of makes the day break up, and keeps us sane, especially if work is stressful that day.
But typically, I’d say we e-mail/text 2-4 times a day. We’re just cool like that 🙂 If we have a lot going on (like, for example, with wedding plans), we e-mail a lot more.

FI works as a trader for a financial firm, so he can’t answer his phone or check his email during market hours, since he has to be watching the market all the time (he says it’s like a video game!) I text if there’s something important, and email him about all the other little things that come up, and he answers the emails once the markets close, before he has his end-of-day meetings and things. It’s fun to get the little flood of emails at the end of the day!
