How often do you keep in touch with your SO throughout the day?
 
Just curious. I've always kept in touch kind of often, even in the later stages, at least a few times a day. We both work, have worked(previous dudes). I know some couples don't keep in touch at all, only call/text for a reason.

We really only call for a reason. We used to work together in our own business so we both really miss being together all day long. But DH really needs to concentrate for his job so I know if I call just to chat I'm pulling him out of deep the consentration he needs to do his work. We do email each other sometimes with mp3s or photos/GIFs we know the other might like.

If we aren't going to see each other at all, we text 'good morn' and 'good nite' and a few 'how ya doin' during the day. If we are going to see each other at some point we text to make our plans. He doesn't do computer/email so there's none of that type of contact and we rarely talk on the phone.

Our relationship is still pretty new ( 1 year) so we keep in contact quite a bit. He calls about 2-3xs per day and we text and email frequently.

spring1onu 04-11-2013 11:32 AM

We email from time to time; sometimes it's for a reason and sometimes not. :mrgreen:

I rarely ever call him unless I really need something. To me work is work and that means no phone calls unless I have to.

spiderlashes5000 04-11-2013 11:33 AM

5-10 texts thoughout the day M-F is the norm for me. If we are going to see each other, probably no calls. If we are not going to see each other, usualy a quick call during my drive home or before bed.

My relationship is still pretty new but we speak about once a day on average. My man's a chef and he works in a basement where he doesn't get reception so we talk at night. With previous relationships, I kept in contact about every two days or so.

Cool question.

It depends. Sometimes all day via IM. Sometimes just a couple times. It's rare that I hear from him only once late in the day or not at all. I figure that's when he's super busy, or stressed out, in a bad mood and just needs space. We work together and for a while we'd also see each other several times a day. But my boss told him to stop. Good thing he has an office I can visit instead. And we have meetings we have to be in together maybe twice a week.

We typically talk a few times a day. He has to wait on stuff sometimes and he'll call and chat for a few. I rarely call him unless it's important. I prefer to just send him telepathic messages to call me. He's really bad about checking his messages though.

mad scientist 04-11-2013 12:59 PM

Not really at all unless one of us has a question then we might text.

Partly this is because neither of us have our phones on us for much of the work day due to the types of jobs we have.

missbanjo 04-11-2013 03:23 PM

Off and on anytime during the day. I don't really keep track. It'll be phone and/or email.

iroc 04-11-2013 04:02 PM

This is a very rough estimate, but unless there's a reason, or someone needs something - if it's been like 8 hours or so, I'll shoot a "hi" text. I will almost never talk on the phone. There has to be a real reason for the call. If he's going to be home that night, I'll talk to him then. He'll sometimes get messages of pictures I find on Pinterest that he may like, throughout the day.

redcelticcurls 04-11-2013 04:21 PM

Twice a day. We don't live together.

Fifi.G 04-11-2013 05:38 PM

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.

RedCatWaves 04-11-2013 05:42 PM

He works at home most of the time, so I see him for meals during the day and in the evening...the rest of the time, he's holed up in his office. If he's traveling, we usually just chat each evening on the phone or skype.

Bf has had different hours lately so he's home a lot of the day. Its driving me nuts. I'd prefer if the menfolk didn't come home until my day is done and I'm putting the kids to bed. Its really disruptive to my routine.

FieryCurls 04-11-2013 06:14 PM

We only call if it's something important. We talk through text as long as he's not busy. Some days are full of texts and some aren't. Yesterday we talked all through the day from the time I got up at 7:30 until he got off of work at 6:30. We've sent two messages today.

xcptnl 04-11-2013 06:25 PM

Only when necessary. I mean there are times when there is something I want to tell him and I will call him then and he does the same or an email. Typically we do not contact each other at all during the work day. But he always calls when he leaves work so I have clue as to when he will be home. He does not have a set time when he leaves-it varies anywhere from 5 to 6:30 pm and he has an hour drive. It helps with planning dinner :)

I'm used to it. I kinda like him anyway. ;)

Sounds like a needy guy. Before my current SO, I often went every other day or two between contact with others. With this guy, it's been nearly every day. And he hates texting and doesn't do a lot of email so it's mainly been phone calls. Granted, it's once a day, but I wasn't used to it and for a while, I felt stifled. 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.
