Communication in a possible LDR Watch

    So I met a girl about a month before uni ended and we were pretty much seeing each other, the problem is it was my final year and have now left uni. We did discuss maybe continuing it long distance as were both pretty in to each other but wanted to give it a little bit of time before jumping straight into it.

    What is the normal amount of communication to have when in this type of situation? If it were up to me id be talking to her all the time, but I think shes starting to get tired of me texting, while I was still in the area we woild talk everyday all the time, but at the moment were barelly at all

    I had the opposite situation, I started seeing this guy last summer and things were going so great that when he went off to uni (he started the year before me) we decided to still see each other. We're still together, and our communication was great we'd skype a couple of times a week and text each other between lectures etc. and would see each other as often as we could. The thing about being in a LDR is communication and trust is everything, if you feel that there are communication issues you should probably address that as soon as possible rather than let it simmer. My advice to you is to talk to her about it, that's the key to everything

    The thing is I did notice the communication issue and asked her if it bothered her that I kept texting, she said that it didnt bother her as such but that it felt like I was always wanting a reply... tbh im not sure what exactly that even means

    Perhaps you should ask her what she means by that? Because obviously the purpose of texting someone is to expect a reply. Have you tried other methods like calling and skyping? Ask her what she would like, what is her idea of ideal communication?
