I was wondering for you bees that live with your significant others. When one of you is traveling without the other, how often do you communicate? I am visiting family in another state and will be here for a week. We live together so communication is never something I really think about because even if we do not talk often during the day I know that I will see him at the end of the day. However, with me being away from a week I wonder how our communiaction should be. I know it might sound silly but it is new and I don’t know how often I should be communicating with him or expecting him to be communicating with me.
Just curious to know how it is when you fellow bees travel or when your SO’s travel.

We text on and off throughout the day and speak to each other on the phone right before bed every day.

@weddingguest101: We talk/text constantly if one of us is away. We do everything together, so when one of us is gone the other one definitely feels it. I know some couples really look forward to having their “own time,” but we’re not one of those couples.

@weddingguest101: Back in the beginning of our relationship, FH was really bad about talking on the phone – he hated it. Now when one of us is away, we usually talk every day – every other day at the very least. The longer we’ve been together, the more we miss the presence of the other person.

We text throughout the day, which we do most days anyway, and talk on the phone at least once a day.

On the phone at night, like we did before we moved in together. Were not apart that often.
He recently went away for his best friend’s bachelor party and he only called randomly when they were in town bc the house had no service.

@weddingguest101: We’ll text constantly, and every once in a while call. But we haven’t been on a vacation without each other in a few years.

We email a lot throughout the day (our version of texting) and then try to call once a day, though if we’re super tired it can be once every 2 or 3 days

We talk at least once a day.
Either first thing in the morning…
Or Late… before we are headed to bed… whoever is away from home calls the other (as it is their schedule that is the most unpredictable)
I personally prefer end of day, cause it is usually quieter (the away person back in their Hotel Room) and we can talk for a more extended amount of time.
And it is nice to say Goodnight to each other before drifting off to sleep.
Hope this helps,
PS… Since living together, I couldn’t imagine going a whole day without talking to one another. Lol

It depends. If I’m just hanging out with family we’ll probably talk most days, or maybe every other day. But if I’m busy at a conference, we may not talk for a couple days, unless something important comes up. I’d say call if you want but don’t get too upset if he doesn’t get right back to you.

We text a bunch but don’t talk on the phone — neither of us like talking on the phone at all because we have to do it too much at work.

We text all day and talk 2-3 times on the phone a day. Basically when one of us is thinking about the other we call. When I work he calls to talk even and when he works I call him. Sounds like a lot but typically the conversations are only about five minutes

My SO travels out of town for work pretty regularly..usually every other month for a few days. He also loves going on 2 day fishing/hunting trips with his friends.
When he goes away for work we will talk when he arrives at his hotel and every night at the very least. I usually send him a good morning text too which he will respond to if he sees it and isn’t already in a meeting/out in the field. He HATES texting and he rarely even reads my texts when I send them..so I don’t know why I bother.
When he goes away with his friends I tell him to go and have fun and we will talk when he gets back. He always ends up calling me anyway.
When I come up to visit my parents over night we always say we will talk at night but he always falls asleep on the couch with the dogs at like 8 when I am not there so usually we don’t talk, then he will email me from work the next day telling me about how sorry he is because he fell asleep. It used to bother me, now I just laugh.

i would at least speak to him on the phone every night before bed, and text a couple times during the day.
it is normal for us to text during the day.

We call and text all day whether together Or not. He worries about me when Im working out of town which is understandable but we are also just best friends. We like talking. We talk at least every hour and text in between. We’ve been together over five years and it hasn’t changed
