    Speak in the morning, a text or two on lunch break, then of course spend the evening together. So I chose 3-5.

    @MrsMagillToBe:  ha! Great question! SO and I call each other frequently during the day – he called me 3 times at work today (things are very quiet at work this week with people away, so it’s okay. Normally I’m so busy I don’t have time to chat!). We send probably 5 messages each, sometimes more. It’s nice to stay connected, it’s not clingy I don’t reckon. Sometimes we call each other with news, other times for no reason! And we’ve been together almost 6 years!

    I don’t know if I could really put a number on it..

    We talk in the morning before work, we don’t really text messges unless its about making plans, or something that needs to be done [need bread, asking questions, w/e the case may be].

    And, we spent all of our time after work together. We do pretty much everything together.. shopping, playing video games, watching movies.

    We never fight over anything big, usually just little bickering over what tv show to watch.. lol

    We really are best friends – when he’s late home from work it’s weird being alone all by myself!

    I dont really count but I guess I fall in the needy section. We live together, and both work 8 – 5 jobs, about 500m apart. So we live together, drive in the same car to and from work together, do all errands and shopping together and still manage to text or email during the day

    honestly not very much (just the way we like it).

    He talks to me in the morning but I am usually still sleeping, no texts or calls during the day (he can’t be on his phone), then we spend all evening together.


    Honestly, not that much stuff happens during the day that I need to text him about.


    We are both very indeendent, and have very active lives outside of the marriage.

    We email and text sometimes when apart…that can be like a week of e-silence followed by a sudden deluge of emails or texts on one day, it depends on whether we have something to discuss that way or not. We don’t call much if we’re apart for less than a day…mainly only to clarify anything that isn’t easily coming across on email or text. When we’re out, we’re usually busy, so it’s not usually “just to chat”.

    We spend a lot of time together in person, since we live together and have a lot of shared hobbies. That’s probably another reason we don’t need to use other ways of communication very much.

    We email each other all day during work. We both have desk jobs where we are on the computer – we start about 9 and stop a little before 3.  We don’t talk on the phone though during work hours, unless its an absolute emergency.  Text pictures here and there…play games together during our lunch hour with our phones. We live together. I work 7-5, he works 7-3.

    When we’re at home, we talk all the time.

    When we’re at work, it will be at random intervals during the day just to check up or tell the other something important (we usually text). We don’t call unless it’s an emergency.

    I leave my gmail window open throughout the day and we’ll chat throughout theday when we’re at work. When we get home, we’re always talking.  I don’t see it as clingy, just as keeping the day nicely paced. I love how after 8+ years of dating and 10+ years of being friends, we haven’t run out of things to talk about.

    3 times a day on average. We don’t see each other during the week because of our work schedules.

    Well, we’re long distance so communication is very important for both of us. I’d say between texts, calls and Skype we definitely talk 10+ times a day (if you count each text as “one” instance). Some days it’s less – when he was in India I was lucky to talk to him once or twice a day. But I think sometimes we talk SO much more now than we will when we live together haha.
