    Do you? How often?

    Do you think it gives you less things to talk about in person/over the phone? My BF and I do and sometimes I think it's like we know *everything* about eachother's day so it's sort of like we don't talk about that normal kind of "oh how was your day?" stuff.

    Opinions?

    When we were living together (and also before we were living together), we chatted online infrequently.. now that he's moved to Amsterdam for school, we're chatting often.

    I -HATE- talking on the phone, so yes for me it has the positive benefit shortening time spent on the phone.

    Never had a relationship get to the place where we didnt have enough to talk about even after a bit of IM'ing. Obviously im not trying to spend significant time IM'ing either though so it was more just quick things, not constant contact.

    Over IM, not so much but sometimes we email each other. Especially if I'm at work and she's at home.

    And whatever we talk about via email or IM, we usually end up talking about it in person anyway.

    I'm in a cubical at work, so we message each other several times throughout the work day, usually just short messages. She's a stay-at-home mom, so it's nice to know if she might be at her mom's house, shopping, at a friend's house, or whatever.

    choose hardly ever. I didn't add never because I figured that was close enough and I hate polls with a ton of options.

    I use gmail chat...

    with my ex, a lot. She didn't have unlimited text and random messages while doing other stuff.

    Worried about not having something to say on the phone ? who gives a shit.


    current, she doesn't have a smart phone/on computer during the day, so none. Some texting.

    I hardly ever talked to my ex on IM or email (except when we were doing the long distance thing and then it was just an email once in a while).

    Since we split, I've realized that she missed out on a HUGE part of who I am (a writer) and by not doing that stuff she never really got to know who I am.

    Hence, I hope that any future SO's talk on IM and email and stuff because if not they'll be missing out on a side of me that they just can't see in real life.

    My AIM only has my SO on it lol. I don't ever use it. (I actually don't use any messangers) I only downloaded it to talk to him on there when we first started dating. I hate talking to him on it because, like you said, it leaves nothing to talk about when I talk to him on the phone. So the only time I usually get on it is to post a link to him about something interesting I saw on the web. Then maybe do a small talk and sign off. I'd much rather talk on the phone.
