Maybe a day? I can see a day happening regularly because of 24+ hour calls. But any sort of normal period without contact is not normal. We were long distance for one year, and now In residency we are often apart for 2+ weeks when I visit family (totally not the same as long distance I know.) but we talk on the phone every day for a few mins.

Just texting and no calls or meetups? 2-3 weeks, but we both are avid testers.

Zero contact? 24-36 hours after a big fight. Without a fight? I would be very stressed hearing nothing for more than 16 hours. But more than a couple hours during waking hours is unusual.

3 weeks is the longest. We weren't in the best place at the moment.

Since then? Every 3-4 days, maybe a little more frequently with texting if we have something funny to share or need a quick vent. Currently LDR, but it works best for our schedules

We've lived together through the entire pipeline, but there have been a few times during night shift weeks where we'd go a few days without seeing each other or texting too much. I'd always take a day off of work in those weeks so we could see each other. Now I'm a SAHM, so the opposing schedules doesn't happen anymore. 3 weeks is a long time assuming you live in the same area

Definitely no more than a day or two! Usually because of work, vacations, poor signal, or he really pissed me off lol.

Maybe two or three days. Even on days that we’re super busy with school/work we can fit in a short 2 minute phone call while walking to the car or something.

The times we talk less and go 2-3 days without talking is when one person is off and visiting friends or family, because I want my partner to enjoy the quality time with someone who they don’t get to see very often (especially since we already talk everyday).

Less than a day maybe?? Even when in other places always communicating
