I do!  We talk everyday three-four times a day.  Once in the morning going in to work, once at lunch, once driving home from work and usually one of us has a question or some news sometime during the day that needs to be shared ASAP!  Its been this way for 5.5 years and I don’t see it changing.  I feel strange if we haven’t talked in the morning.  Just keeps us connected even if its only for 5 minutes.  And yes, this continues even when SO or me is out of town.

Yes; I especially expect to talk to my Fiance before going to sleep for the night. Maybe a text here or there during the day as well.

We usually try to call to say good night as a default when one of us is away.  But if one of us is busy there or at home we’d text to say we’ll miss the 11pm chat, and it’s no big deal.

Definitely or a msg/ txt. But he’s great with that so Ive never needed to ask. I do the same for him 🙂

Absolutely.  We miss each other when we’re apart.  He actually calls me quite often when he’s not out of town, and just at work.  I love that about him.

No a text is all I need from SO. He will occasionally call me to tell me about things but I would be ok if he didn’t

I’m LDR, and while we usually do speak everyday, sometimes he goes out of town for work and cannot be online to chat much, and that’s okay. I don’t mind going a day without hearing from him, but if it’s more than two I expect a text or a FB message.

Now, I imagine if we were living together or at least in the same area, I’d probably expect the same. One day? I don’t have to hear from him, but it would be nice. More than that? Then I’d want him to at least drop me a quick line.

@lybarra:  I’m kind of like you. I want to know that Fiance is ok, but we will have plenty of time to talk when he returns. We’ll check in with eachother but that’s just through short  phone call or a text message.

Yes indeedy. Sometimes we’re both busy or tired though and it’s short n’ sweet.

We try to talk multiple times a day when he’s away but it doesn’t usually happen.  We always do a goodnight phone call which is very important to both of us but we love to chat with each other.

Yes. At least once a day, maybe 2.

If my husband were out of town, I’d expect to hear from him a couple of times a day. But that’s just what we’re used to. I would just try to set up expectations before you or your SO leaves so neither is disappointed.
