How often do you keep in touch with your SO throughout the day?

Like Tree10Likes

I have no current SO but the last one shocked me. I was used to little to no conversations during work time with others, and he blew up my phone. He texted me non stop, all day or night, every day and night. If I did not respond in a few minutes...

Whats wrong? Are you mad? You're being too quiet.

Goodness. It drove me crazy at first, and then I got used to, and then he said I texted too much. What? Dating in my late 30's feels more like 3rd grade.

But then, I'm an introvert and need some time alone. I don't need company constantly like a number of other people do. I'm sure that if he didn't have a job where he got bad reception, we'd be speaking several times a day.

When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

In normal situations with men over 30 who do not think they are 19, I would say once or twice a day is pretty normal.

We IM and text throughout the day and evening. We only see each other on weekends and we both hate talking on the phone, so text/IM are the main ways we stay in touch during the week.
Throughout the day by call/text/ and in person. More than usual we spend a lot of time together. We both work but still see each other everyday, call throughout the day, eat together, relax together.
We text/voxer (like a talking text app) throughout the day and night, and sometimes facetime if we don't see each other for a few days. We hardly ever talk on the regular phone.

I could probably count the times we've spoken on the phone on my fingers, and we've been together 5 years. Unless the relationship is long distance, or another reason you can't get together--say, teenagers without a car and a curfew--then I don't really see the point of talking on the phone all the time, personally.

Before living together we would probably email at least once per day, and then text in the evenings around 5-10 texts within a 30-60 minute "text conversation". And we'd see each other a couple times/week.

After living together, we really see each other every night, even if it's only for half an hour after he gets home and before I go to bed. We still email at least once per day, and in the evenings when I'm home and he's not we often text a few times. Usually pictures of the sleeping puppy. :-)




My brother and his wife are the kind of couple that are in CONSTANT phone contact. I often think it's incredibly rude and disrespectful. For instance, if he's out somewhere and she couldn't go, or didn't want to go, for whatever reason, it's rude for her to call him, right? He's obviously out with other people. I mean, if you need something in particular, fine, but just to call? I don't get it.

I'm more on the needy side and I was surprised that the bf is the same way, if not more. Now it's less but still a good amount.

Both of us use skype (for chatting) and have it on all day so we have each other 'on demand' lol. We usually know what we've had for lunch, when we have meetings, etc. He'll meet up with me sometimes for lunch(he works from home and is only a few miles from me). We don't live together and see each other everyday except once a week on avg.

I thought of this topic because my former boss once was playfully complaining about his friend and his wife and how they stay in touch all the time and they know each other's every move throughout the day and his (my boss) wife only calls him if somethings wrong. I guess I'm more like that 'annoying' couple lol.
DH and I email back and forth during the day. Usually, it's about two emails apiece, either discussing plans or just talking about our day. We have a long thread of emails in Gmail that we just keep adding onto (though, this behavior has taught us that Gmail cuts off an email chain at 100 replies, lol)

Email works well because it's not disruptive to one another. We only call if it's important.

Average, not living together:
20 texts a day
1 short phone call a day

The only SO I lived with was abusive, so I'd get like 50 texts a day and like 6 phone calls... I don't think that counts tho.

My relationship is still SUPER new (a couple months ) but we see each other only on weekends due to a 3 hour drive each way. During the week we text throughout the day/evening (what're you up to, XYZ just happened, I miss you, etc) and we'll talk on the phone once or twice a week Mon-Fri.
Sat AM-Mon AM we are together.

My SO and I only contact each other through the day if there's a reason, it wouldn't enter my head to call just for the sake of catching up.

I tried to like iroc's post but my computer's being weird, but I agree with her sentiment of liking menfolk out of the house - it irritates me if mine comes home through the day when I should be on my own!

Yesterday was so nice (I didnt see him although got needy at night and couldnt sleep), I experimented cooking, and cleaned out a lot of my closet. I can finally see the ground and some wall space!

Yes but I think it's temporary at least on my end. I'm trying to figure things out.
