    Definitely 10+,  I couldn’t keep count even if I wanted to. We’re constantly texting back and forth, especially if I’m at work and he’s at home, and it’s a slow day, and we’ll call each other when we’re on our way home, just so the other one can start dinner if it’s late enough, or just because we want to. We also call if we have something that needs an urgent response and a text can’t handle it. Plus we live together so we talk at home. I honestly think we’re at 10+ already, and it’s not even noon.

    @aggie2010:  +1. Same goes for me. I only get to talk to my Fiance a couple of times during the work day, but we spend 95% of our free time together, and go anywhere the other goes when we are hanging out. 🙂

    We don’t live together, so we talk every chance we get! He calls when he gets up, texts me throughout the day, I call him before bed and we talk for 2 hours on accident. lol. We love talking to each other so 10+ for me!

    Lots!  And we like it that way.  It’s almost 11am here and we’ve exchanged four emails back and forth so far.  We’ll reach 10+ per day usually.  🙂

    Re-reading the thread I should qualify we’re married and live together; I was counting only the times we’re apart, which is work fulltime (M-F 8am-5pm).  Emails are quick; it doesn’t take much time to send, “Thinking about you, baby, I love you,” back and forth.

    We both have very busy jobs so no time to text/chat during the work day so i voted 1-2! We’ll text/call if there’s something we need to know right away, or email if less urgent.  Occasionally he’ll send me a good morning text as he’s up before me, but that’s more of a nice thing he does sometimes rather than something i expect every day.

    We’ve been married for almost 7 months, together for over 4 years, & living together for about 3.5 years.  In that time, despite how long we’ve lived or been together, we talk pretty much everyday, almost all day.  Of course, when we’re at work the texting is slower, but we definitely send each more than 10 texts a day.  We don’t talk on the phone much, but our texting certainly doesn’t mean we’re checking up on each other.  We enjoy it & have always done it, practically from the day 1 haha.  I love that we can talk to each other so much & not be tired of each other!

    @MrsMagillToBe:  We work together right now, so I see him at work and we live together, so definitely 10+.

    We don’t work directly together, but we work in the same office, and we will have quick chats, or IM (our workplace has its own system).

    Even if we didn’t work together, I am sure we would somehow connect a few times during the workday.

    We live together but he leaved the house 1 hr before I wake up. So we normally text each other 

    • Him: when he gets to work
    • ME: When I am on my way to work
    • 2-3 times throughout the day. Just to check how we are doing
    • email throughout the day (What do you want for diner tonight?)
    • When He leaves work
    • When I leave work
    • When I get home

    Then he gets home.

    I said 10+ but that’s only because we live together.

    We both work 8-5 and see each other briefly before we both leave for work.

    We don’t text/call/e-mail during the day unless it’s like a funny e-mail joke or we need to let each other know something important (Going to the store after work, will be late getting home, working over today, picking up something for supper, etc.)

    We talk a lot after we both get home from work, but neither of us feel the need to chat all throughout the day.  He’s working, I’m working…there’s no need to check up on each other.  

    Some of the guys I work with get phone calls literally almost every hour from their wives. Not only is it annoying to have the main phone ringing all day long so that all the lines get tied up, but I’ll never understand why in the world they feel the need to call so many times a day to just chat.  Maybe Fiance and I are just different.  I respect the fact that he is busy working and he does the same for me.  Unless something can’t wait until we get home to talk about, or one of us is going to be late getting home, we don’t really talk during the workday.

    We are not a needy couple. We love our time together but we also value allowing the other to have their own time. 

    I totally answered your poll wrong By The Way lol. 

    We get up together and he has breakfast while i make his lunch. Depending on the day we might send a few texts if its important or call about plans for that night or dinner, but honestly were both working we dont want to bother the other.  We then spend every night together. But its no issue if one of us wants to make our own plans.

    I don’t think that’s clingy… but I’m the same lol. Fiance leaves before I even wake up. Sometimes he’ll call once he thinks I’m up, but not always. I call him every morning when I leave hte house for work. I have an hour long drive and cell services cuts out, so I call when I leave hte house and then again once I’m about 5 minutes from work. I call him on my lunch break and on my way home from work. Sometimes we text/call between then, too!
