Hey Waiting Bees-
I am curious…how often do you see your SO? (assuming you don’t live together)
We live about a 20 minute drive apart and usually see each other 2-3 days a week. We both work full time, and he works a lot of evenings, we both are high school coaches, my season runs from May-March and his is November-March so that takes up a lot of after work time. We both have really close friends that we spend a night or two a week with too.
I know TONS of other couples that spend EVERY waking (and sleeping) minute together (my roommate’s BF is actually our 4th roommate that lives for free) Just wondering if we are not the norm!
We are moving in together in November so I am looking forward to spending lots (but not all!) more time together!

2-3x per week visits.

He works two buildings away from where I work, and lives about 10 mins away. So its not unusual to see each other every day. Unless we’re busy, could go a couple of days. Which may be the case these coming weeks. Sigh.

We live about an hour and 15 minutes away from each other, and lately we see each other either Friday night-Sunday afternoon or Saturday afternoon-Sunday afternoon. However, in the past we used to see each other a little more often like one night earlier in the week in addition to spending weekends together.

We live together, but because of his work schedule we may not see each other for a few days at a time. He works long hrs and often leaves the house as I am waking up and gets home until after I’ve gone to sleep. I’ll wake up to say hi or bye to him, but that doesn’t count as time together. So I usually see him once during the week and on the weekends. I miss him 🙁 I got use to spending a few nights a week home relaxing with him before our schedules changed.

We live an hour apart, give or take 5 minutes, so we do Fri-Sunday afternoon as a rule. Once in a great while we do a weekday, but it’s hard with jobs and responsibilities at home. We used to do one weeknight (meet 1/2 way) and just Sat-Sun but it’s easier to just take turns during the weekend. switching off at each other’s house. It’s kind of fun because I live in the country and on a farm and he lives in the suburbs so we get a different experience each weekend.

Since we started dating, we’ve pretty much seen each other every Fri afternoon – early monday morning as we live a couple of hours apart. If we were really missing each other, we would do a Wednesday meet up, but that got to be too much as I’d have to be up super earlly for work the next day. We’re moving in together soon though, so now that won’t be an issue 🙂

We live on different sides of the city, about 30 mins by car. However he doesn’t have a car, and in NZ we have very poor public transport, so he can’t bus to my house without taking 2 buses. So we only see each other when I drive to him. He never comes to my house on his own.
I have to admit that I resent him a lot for not coming on 2 buses to my house even once all these years. -_-
I only see him about once a fortnight because I refuse to drive over there all the time to see him and use my petrol (I live on a very tight budget). I could see him more, but he lives in a flat and can come and go as he pleases (and catch a bus to see me) and I live here with my child who goes to bed every night at 6.
I do tell him that I miss him and wish I could see him more often. But he still doesn’t come. So i tend to get a bit passive aggressive and tell him I have no petrol, that child is in bed, etc, to see if he offers to bus. he never does.
God, makes me mad just thinking about it now 😉 I haven’t seen him in 3 weeks! So I just called him and said I miss him, and he said we could meet up tomorrow, I said ok. He said “come and pick me up and I’ll come over”. >_<

SO and I live together, but..
@tobin: !!! I think you really need to tell your guy straight to his face that you are offended by the fact that he has NEVER made an effort to come to YOUR house to see you and YOUR baby! That is just so wrong to me! How long have you two been together? I know that since you’re here you want to get married, but are the two of you actively planning on getting engaged/married? Seems like a big issue that you might want to deal with before you move further with things! You have a right to be pissed. ((hugs to you!))
