How often do you contact your partner? watch

    My boyfriend wants to talk to me every day (we have a LDR). I really don't enjoy talking daily. How often do you keep in contact with your other half? Is anyone like me in that they just enjoy having a lot of space?

    Everyday We're in an LDR as well, but he's home for summer at the moment. It's not always talking on the phone, because I much prefer text messages and emails.

    I enjoy having my own space, but I like talking to my boyfriend as well It's not exactly time consuming to drop him a text to let him know how are or, to ask him about his day, trivial things like that and to let him know you're thinking about him.

    Ever day, I look forward to knowing how he is, how his day has been. Talking every day doesn't mean giving up "space"- being in a LDR provides enough of that for me anyway.

    I live with him now but before that it was every day. We used to contact each other quite a lot more than most couples I know, texts throughout the day and a lengthy (1 hr +) phone call on evenings I didn't see him, sometimes we spoke on the phone after seeing each other. Then about nine months into it we began seeing each other every day and also texting and calling between that.

    We're apart for the summer and we pretty much talk constantly on MSN/Skype unless one of us is unable to. When I go back, we'll be living together.

    My and my bf were ldr for 5 years and spoke every 2-3 days. There's nothing wrong with only wanting to talk when you have something to say, rather than listing the mundanities of what you had for dinner etc. It's less tieing to only talk when you really want to, rather than feeling the pressure of doing it every day. As we got closer to moving in together I used to get a text at lunchtime or something, but only if we had something nice/important to say. I think that's more special than feeling obliged, but of course it's up to you and your bf.

    Just thought I'd provide the alternative viewpoint!

    Every day. We're in an LDR but she phones me for short chats in the afternoon, and then usually an hour before bed. Can it get too much? Hell yes! Esp when she phones more than twice in the afternoon :bird:. But mainly it's fine, she gives good banter. Iz nize :borat:

    i give my boyfriend a text everyday, but he doesnt reply cause has no money on his phone, which i understand, hes in cameroon atm with a bad back and unable to fly home, so its hard for us both, him especially, we were used to spending 24/7 with each other at uni and then he goes home and then to africa and we hardly talk, its hard i hate it and its made me really ill because of it
