  • Never. But he calls me on his breaks.

  • We don't text at all, but he calls me. Depending on what he needs, he might call me several times a day, or just a couple of times.

  • Never! Once I say goodbye and head off to work, that's it!

    I'm old school and when you're at work, your phone stays in your purse.

  • When he is actually home I don't call or text him too often, he doesn't really have the time for calls

    but he is deployed right now so I find little things to message him with since he is missing out on our 2nd sons first year.

  • only if theres an emergency or something that cant wait till he gets home. usually i'll just message him thru FB and if he has free time he'll respond. on Fridays tho he'll sit on FB messaging w/ me for a while b/c he just sits at his desk doing paperwork. he gets bored haha

  • My SO doesn't text. We've been together almost 3 yrs and he has texted me 1 time. I usually text him 1 time in the morning so he knows I got to work ok and so he has something to read on his break. If I think of something during the day, I'll text him on my break. He usually calls me on his break, but not always.

    I like to keep the lines of communication open and like to give him something to look forward to on break and to help him thru the day. But I don't ever want to keep him from getting his job done. He is paid to work, not text/talk to me. I guess I"m old school too.

  • Hardly ever unless there's a pressing need.

    Answer by Ballad at 10:51 PM on Jun. 17, 2013

  • Very rarely unless it's important. I'll text him back if he texts me first.
    I don't want to get him in trouble for checking his phone while he's at work.
