We talked about 3 times a day.  Once around 8:30ish, at lunch and then around 4ish.  BUt we also shoot each other quick little emails too if we’re not too busy.

We use google chat, it’s the only thing not blocked at work. Before that I would use MSN on my phone. I usually call him when something comes up thats “urgent”.

While we are at work, usually just one quick phone call a day to say hi – more lately, since there are lots of wedding details to discuss.  I don’t see it really changing much after we are married…

All chat programs are blocked at my office. We live together so I see him morning and night. And I usually call him, or he calls me at least once during the day. Then some back and forth e-mails/texts.

We text all day long and usually talk on the phone before bed.

Before Fiance got a new job we’d text throughout the day. But now we’ll text each other good morning and a few(2 or 3 times) throughout the day. If he’s not busy he’ll call me during lunch just to see how my day is going. And then whoever gets off work first calls the other.

EDIT: We were long distance for a long time so we’re use to talking ALL the time lol

We text ALL the time. It’s really unusual for us to not share around 7-8 texts throughout the day. And one of us usually phones around lunch just to make sure we’re both ok (especially when we were both working really stressful jobs – I’m not working at the moment so it’s become less of the norm but we still try to do it). And as a matter of habit I always phone if I go out to run errands/meet friends whilst he’s working so he knows that nobody is home.

My fiance actually leaves for work before I even get up.  I try not to call him during the day because he works in traffic.  I miss him all day but it’s fun to catch up in the afternoon

my fiance and i work 9-10 hour days, and we talk to each other maybe once, if it’s important and/or time sensitive (i.e. have you booked the honeymoon yet?! lol). we’ll talk on the phone maybe 2-3 times throughout the whole week (while we’re at work, of course. we talk a whole lot once we get home and in the morning before going to work, lol.). if i have a question (that isn’t so urgent) or would like to share an interesting article or something, i’ll email him (and vice versa). that happens about once every day or two as well. maybe if we could chat via instant messages we would, but those IM services aren’t allowed on my work computer, boo.

We’ll send a facebook message or call if there is something that needs to be discussed specifically. Otherwise we don’t usually talk at all during the day.

We live together and drive to work together for about half of the week, so we spend plenty or time together/talking when we aren’t working.

Umm…. Fiance and I never talk/text during the day.  We live together, so we see eachother in the morning and evening.  Also, we will usually call eachother on our way home (don’t know why!).  However, I think our lack of daily communication is because we are too busy actually working and not sitting at our computers… we are both teachers, so it is rare to have time to text or talk online.

We don’t communicate much. If we have a question about something we might send a message. But he doesn’t usually have his cell on him @ work so it’s usually just when we wake up in the morning we see each other andthen we see or talk to each other after work. We live together so we get enough of one another… lol we’re not really smoochy smoochy types…

We talk on the phone several times during the day.  I work from home and he’s his own boss too, so it’s not that hard to do.  He’s always driving from one courthouse to another and chatting helps kill the boredom of the drive.

He’ll also send me facebook messages sometimes of things he comes across during the day that are funny or cute that he thinks I’d like to look at.

@Neva: Like you guys, we don’t really talk/text when he’s golfing.  That’s man time!  He’ll usually call me at the turn to tell me he’s halfway done and what time he thinks he’ll be home 🙂

The nature of FI’s work doesn’t allow him to take calls and texts for hours at a time. He’ll usually text me during his lunch break (which is anywhere from 11am to 2pm, usually) and ask how I’m doing. After that, I don’t hear from him until he’s leaving work (another text), and then when he’s off the train and driving back to the house (call – handsfree, no worries!)

He leaves early in the morning and gets home rather late in the evening, so we really don’t do much conversing except on weekends. lol Sad, but true. Neither of us really realized that until one of our counseling sessiosn, where we took a quiz… and one of the questions was, “How much time will you spend together in an average week, excluding weekends and sleeping?” After doing some quick mental math, we realized we only spend about 6-10 hours a week together!
