Everybody is very surprised that my husband and I don’t text each other continuously throughout the day. Unless we are coordinating a furniture delivery or a kid pickup, we don’t text each other at all, to be honest.
I’m passionately in love with the man but I need some space, too. Being constantly in touch feels very suffocating. I’m not saying that people who do it are in any way wrong. I’m sure it’s super cute when they do it. I’m just saying that even the thought of getting several text messages a day from him makes me feel choked.
We also don’t read each other’s social media. What would we talk about if we did? I bring all of my best material here and have very little else to contribute to a conversation.
