    I'm having constant arguments with my parents as they say i spend too much time on facetime to my boyfriend. They say its "freaky" and "not normal" i have other friends that spend a lot of time on the phone to their boyfriends / girlfriends and i really don't see the big deal? Anyone else spend a lot of time on facetime or on the phone?

    Is it a long distance relationship? If so, they probably not use to it and want to see you talking face to face than showing emotions over a gadget. And it's the modern day where everyone is hooked onto their phone. So, just don't take their point too at heart, they just don't understand and see it weird.

    I agree with the point above. Why don't you go and spend time with your bf instead of Facetime? i know you always want to be in contact with your bf but why don't you facetime at night instead of the day so u can spend some time with your family just a suggestion xx
