We text everday, sometimes more than others.  He’s currently still sleeping because he is doing his preceptorship 6pm to 6am tonight and I have an exam at 9am tomorrow morning, so we’re going to be up at opposite hours.  Before he started his preceptorhsip and the shift work that comes with it or when he’s on days we text a lot more.  When our schedules matched up, we tended to Skype once every three or four days; now we only have the opportunity on his days off.

I’m not in a LDR anymore because we live together now. But when we did live apart we texted once or twice throughtout the day and stayed on the phone like all night lol. Unless one was busy, but we always had a lot to talk about. It’s about the same now, while were at work, nothing but spend all night together just chatting it up.

Fiance and I were in a LDR for the first year of our relationship.  We would text after he was done work until he would go to bed.  We would call each other once in awhile too.  Weekends were time that we spent together (we were only an hour or so away, but had busy lives).

I call every morning, and we talk for just 5-10 minutes while I walk my dog.  Then we gchat off and on throughout the day.  We usually talk for 20-30 minutes after work then an hour or so right before bed.  We see each other every weekend because we’re only 2 hours apart.

we text throughout the day, occasional emails with pictures or funny things, then sometimes a call when he’s driving home from work (about an hour commute).  we also get to see each other at least every other week (despite a 5 hour drive) so we make it work.

Wow, all of you talk a lot!  You guys are lucky.

Darling Husband and I were long distance between Australia and the US for the first two years of our relationship.  For the first six months, we spoke on the phone every 2 – 3 days and Skyped on the weekends.  He then moved to the States for 6 months and that was great.  We then had 6 months apart and could only Skype on weekends with occasional emails during the week – the time difference and our incredibly demanding jobs made talking on the phone during the week impossible.  I then went to Australia for 3 months and we then had another 4 month separation with Skype on weekends only.  

We’re now finally living together and couldn’t be happier.  LDR are difficult and factor in the international component and the difficulty factor ups by ten!

@Ree723: Only Skyping every weekend sounds rough.  For the first two summers when Kyle and I were dating he worked at a provincial park for the summers.  He was gone for 5 days a week… no cell service (so no texting), no internet access, no phone calls. We could only contact each other 2 days a week, even being so close, and it was unpleasant.  I can only imagine that international would be much worse, because at least I could see him.

When we were LD we would chat when we both got home from school and sometimes email throughout the day depending on what our schedules were like that day. He doesn’t have a cell so we never did the texting throughout the day.

Oh wow, you guys are all so lucky! I’m super jealous now.

Fiance and I can easily go several days without any communication, even texting. We both are in school (I’m taking 18 credits, he’s going for Paramedic, so both super intense) and I work almost full time, he works two jobs at well over full time. We almost never are able to talk at the same time, since we almost never have off of work at the same time. We see each other maybe once every 2-3 weeks, and usually only for a couple hours. Maybe a couple times a week we Facebook chat directly, otherwise it’s all FB wall postings and texts that we don’t get for hours after the other one sent it.I can’t remember the last time we Skyped.

I guess I thought this was a typical LDR, lol. We make it work though, and I value getting to see him and talk to him that much more ๐Ÿ™‚

@Mrs.Lonestar: I guess I don’t know anyone in person doing the LDR thing so I don’t have any way to compare, haha. It’s not that I don’t want to text him, but I try not to when I know he’s at work or in class in case he forgets to turn his phone off ๐Ÿ˜› And and one of his jobs, he’s an EMT and works 12 hour shifts, he doesn’t get phone reception. I wish I got to talk to him more though.

Yeah, I work 30 hours a week at minumum, so not quite full time but it’s close sometimes.
