When dating, how often did you see your partner? How did you keep contact with them when apart? A comment from a friend made me curios how other couples do/did things.
So, How often did you physically see your partner? (How many times per week/month?)
When you weren’t with them, how would you keep in touch? (Phone calls? Text?)
With what frequency? (Every day, every other day? All day long? Not at all?)

In the first few months, we would see each other roughly every 0.5-1 week. Then it increased to every other day and then virtually every day. It also helps that we live in neighboring cities, and I live really close to his workplace. I guess it also helps that he was crazy about me :).

CaliforniaLovin: My FI and I took things really, really slowly the first several months.
In the beginning, like the first 3-4 months, we would hang out two or three times a week. We would normally at least talk on the phone every night that we didn’t see each other.
About 6 months down the road is when we started getting really serious. We then started seeing each other more around 5 times a week. Fast forward a year after that, and we got engaged!
We now see each other every day, unless one of us is out of town for the weekend or something. But, we also live together.

We were hooked. Couldn’t spend time away from each other, other than to go to work. When at work, we would text and call at lunchtime. We were inseparable from the very beginning 🙂
I’m curious as to what cooment your friend made!!

We would see each other every day unless one of us were out of town. And every day we would text pretty much the whole day, with maybe a phone call. We worked at nearby places so we would usually eat lunch together and then hang out after work too.
When one of us was out of town, we’d still text the entire time with a phone call or two each day and we would try to FaceTime at night if it were possible, but sometimes that didn’t work out.

We were basically inseparable from day one. We were only apart when we were at work (he worked 24-72 hour shifts). We would call and text frequently throughout the day, and still do over 2 years later. We got engaged after 6 months of dating, and married after 10 months. We now have a 9 month old baby. 🙂

Jeez, this will sound crazy, but we saw each other everyday. I met him when I applied to the job he worked at. I worked on the weekends, he worked Wed-Sun. So we saw each other on the wekeends, and then during the day when I wasn’t in college classes. The nicest thing was the job we both worked at was right by my house, so he often spent the weekend at my house. It slowed down a couple months after that and went to 4-5 times a week and then he moved in August and now we see each other everyday again, because we live togehter, and somewhere in that we got married 🙂 We usually texted because of the opposite schedule

We had an old fashioned courtship. He would call by Wednesday night to ask me out for Friday night. That would entail him driving an hour to my house, an hour to a nice place for dinner & then a courtly good night kiss at my door.
Gawd, I loved that! I was in the midst of an ugly divorce from my abuser & didn’t need any drama or pressure.
It became a standing thing, our Friday night dates, but he always called by Wednesday night.
Eventually, it evolved into doing more things together. He would come in after dinner to play with the dogs whom he adored–5 German Shepherds. I had kennel property back then.
But, even at 3 am, he was always the gentleman & went home without trying anything.
That all went on for 8 mos before we took it to the next level. Eventually, he started calling every night & things just progressed to full time relationship.
He’s still a gentleman, though. I felt so cherished those early months. I’m glad things unfolded as they did.

for the first few months we saw each other once a week, maybe twice. we talked every other day, and texted too.
then it became we would see each other a few times a week and we talked every day.
then we would try to see each other at least 4 times a week, including a sleepover or 2.
then he moved in with me.

CaliforniaLovin: We moved in together after a couple of months. Prior to that we saw each other in person every single day and communicated by telephone or text each day as well. Right from the start he was the last thing on my mind at night and the first thing I thought of when I opened my eyes. And he still is.

When our relationship started it was like 2x a week then it progressed to 3-4x a week and now when my son is with his dad I practically live with him. I’m there from 330pm-8am I’m at home while he works. When my son is home with me I still go seehim 2-3x a week. Sundays are usually our date days since thats the only day he is off of work. The other days I would take my son to spend the night. We’ve been talking about moving in together. He has a small place right now with his 19yo son and no room for my son so we are planning on buying a home hopefully by next summer. We usually talk atleast every night before we goto bed. Sometimes during the day and he calls some days during his lunch break at work.

CaliforniaLovin: Well FI was my boss, so every day! But dating wise, we would go out a few times a week and talk/text every day. Eventually by about 4 months we were spending every night together and I moved in after 6 months.

CaliforniaLovin: We’ve been inseperable since before we started dating. We met in grade 6 so we saw each other everyday and hung out on weekends. It was the same when we started dating in grade 8 and all through high school. Right after we moved in together in a different city to go to university and got engaged. We married last month and recently started working together. Needless to say we LOVE being together haha.
In the 8+ years we have been together there were only 5 days where we didn’t see each other and it was when we first started dating and I went on vacation with my family for 5 days.
