    We are semi long distance. When he is here, we talk when we I get home, dinner tends to be our time, phones off, tv/computer off, and we cook together or in the same room.

     

    When he gone, we do a phone call in the morning for about 15-20 minutes, then text after work.

    We don’t live together, and we both hate being on the phone even though both of our jobs require a lot of phone calls.

    We text on and off throughout the day. It’s not keeping tabs, it’s more like (as Fiance says) a “lively conversation that we just don’t end.” 🙂

    While we live together, his work schedule changes every week (and he often is working opposite of my 9-5) so we don’t always get to talk all that much.  We at least text when the only time we really get to “see” eachother is when we’re sleeping.  On the days that we do have off together though, we generally spend the entire time together (if we meet up with friends then we do so together) since days like that are few and far between.

    We’re not texters – we like to talk in person. Sometimes we’ll email once or twice during the day, especially if we need to vent or tell the other person something, but usually we just save it for our evenings together.

    He is working when is at work, so he is unable to talk (no phones allowed).  He has a break half-way through the day (10-10:30 am) where I will shoot him an email if I need him to pick something up or had some random thought he might want to know.  He is off at 2 and we are together the rest of the time.

    My Fiance only works 8 miles away from home, 40 hours per week, and we text/call each other all the time when we’re apart (like 15-20 texts a day).  When we’re together, we can’t shut up either lol.  Honestly, I don’t care if people think it’s clingy, we’re besties so there is always something to talk about (recent games we’ve played, cooking recipes, our dog, our house, etc).  It’s not for everyone, but I wouldn’t change a thing about our relationship.

    10+…We like to just talk sometimes. Sometimes it’s about actual things that need addressing. Lots of I love you texts or I send him something funny I’ve found.

    We live together, too. We usuallly do a small check in when he gets home and then sometimes we do our own thing or sometimes we watch TV or have dinner together. And we continually chat with each other.

    I voted 10+. We live together and we do text each other throughout most of the work day. I work 11-7 5 days a week and he works 11-10 6 days a week. We don’t have a day off together so our only “us” time is Sunday night because he gets off work earlier. Shawn and I are best friends and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

    10+ usually. We work and live together and have the same hobbies and only have a few friends each so most of our time is together.

    Fiance travels to Africa almost every month and was gone for a full year at one point so communication was very limited but we made sure there was a text or phone call once a day for my own piece of mind.

    Wow this post is making me feel sad and insecure. Frown

    We’re long-distance and we only talk about three times a day. I send him a good morning FB message before I go to bed so he gets it when he gets up and then he responds with one so I get it when I get up. He usually gives me a quick call or we’ll chat on FB midday when he gets a break and then we talk before he goes to sleep. If he’s really busy though we’ll skip the midday call. 

    Honestly, I thought that was plenty before I read this post!

    I feel like the oddball in this thread – Darling Husband and I rarely contact each other during work and if we do, it’s a very quick text or phone call for a specific reason.

    We do live together, of course, so we talk in the evenings after he gets home from work and sometimes in the morning if we get up at the same time.  We were in an LDR for over 6 years, so I guess we got used to not talking to each other much (?). We really treasure the time we have together, though.

    How are you supposed to count how many times you speak to each other when you live together so you are constantly around each other from 6pm until you go to bed?

    Anyway we see each other every morning and spend almost every evening together.  Other than that I always call him over my lunch break (noon) and when I get off work at 5.  Sometimes we sent FB messages to each other but it’s usually links and stuff like that.  I don’t usually text much during the work day unless it’s something specific I need.

    We speak once during the day by phone, and that’s it until we see eachother that night usually.

    Occasionally I’ll need to tell him something additional. But usually once or twice a day. We are not very clingy, and we both appreciate our separate time. We joke often that we get along better during the week than the weekend.

    Definitely 10+. We talk all morning, we text and call each other through out the day and then we spend all night together. And some days we spend all day together.

    10+. We sit down to every meal together and talk, we will text each other throughout the work day, and when we get home we make it a point to talk about our day. We also take walks together every night, and we talk the whole time, about our dreams, our past, everything.
