we would see each other 1-2 times a week for the first couple months, then it ramped up to 4+ times. We didn’t start having sleepovers until month 3.  Neither of us are particularly fond of the phone unless we are traveling for work and miss the other person’s voice, so we normally text, which is a-ok!

He lives six hours away 🙁 so it has been really hard. We see each other twice a month, but it might become less this winter when the roads get bad (rocky mountains between us). It’s going to be a long few months until he can find a job and move here.

  • Wedding: Either Philadelphia City Hall or a small chapel.

We saw each other a few times a week and texted/talked daily. We eventually lived with each other before the first month so that eventually turned into nearly daily for 7 1/2 months. (5/12-12/21/12)

Flash forward to 12/22/12-10/1/13…when he was in prison. I only got to see him an hour a week 1/11-5/22 after that it was twice since he was transferred to a county jail in a rural area. It went back to a few days a week since we were living apart and I was working.  

We started living together again (1/14-5/14),though some weeks we barely saw each other at all because I took on a nanny job and he would be lazy all day more towards the Spring. We had a falling out with our roommates and still kept it as often as possible, but, we wound up apart again 3 weeks (aprox. 5/30-6/20) when he went to rehab out of nowhere (hid a relapse after being clean from opiates since before we met) when I was planing a nice holiday weekend together and excited about shindigs friends were throwing. I saw him twice; once a for a visit and another with his counselor. 

Nowadays, since that put us back on getting into a new place (he was working a $100/day general contruction/pipefitting gig that he lost by going away) it really depends. He’s in IOP until October and has groups/meetings along with daily clinic visits so it’s really a matter of not being tired or busy. He stays with me whenever my family is at our Shore house so that helps some.

We used to live about an hour apart so we would see each other one a week for the first 6 months (maybe twice on occasion) and text daily and talk on the phone once a week then I moved closer to him and for the last year we’ve been able to see each other 3-5 days out of the week depending on how busy we were and text daily and usually talk on the phone if we didn’t see each other for a day or two. In two weeks we move in together!

CaliforniaLovin:  early on in dating we probably saw each other once to twice a week.  After about three months this increased to easily 3-5 times a week and daily texts/phone calls.  We moved in together after 1 year of dating (so now we saw each other daily:) )and were engaged after 18 months together.  We’ve now been together for just over 3 years, and married for 3 months!

I was in grad school when we started dating and often had classes in the evenings, so we would have standing dates usually 2 times a week on the nights when I didn’t have a class, one evening at my place/neighborhood and the other at his.  It would be too hard for him to get to work in the morning from my place, and I had nowhere to park in his neighbrhood (plus my dog) so we usually wouldn’t have sleepovers during the week.  We would have sleepovers almost every weekend unless one of us was traveling. 

In between we did a lot of emailing- really long emails back and forth every day.  Some texting.  Occasional phone calls.

It depends. the first year we were together, we saw each other almost every day. Then he went to college and we only saw each other on weekends. During that year apart, we text, called each other, and skyped. i would go down and visit him on weekends or I would bring him home for the weekend. (It was a 2hr drive one way!) One time I even suprised him by taking a college visit on Valentines day, and I showed up as a suprise I ended up going to the same college and after my sophmore year he moved in with me. 🙂
