I agree with the texting thing. I LOVE being able to check in with someone throughout the day but not have to be on the phone. That way, even if you are with someone, you are not really interupting the conversation. Like, if you are driving somewhere with someone, you can still talk to them, but can check in with someone else as well real quick. I guess that kinda seems like taking some focus away, but I’d rather that than sitting on the phone for ten minutes while the other person in the car is waiting to speak to you again.
It is also nice that when Nate is at work, he can text me without his co-workers hearing our conversation, or vice versa. I do appreciate the conveniences technology brings, but I get tired of dating the iphone and not my husband!
Hope you are doing well today. I sure do miss you!
I agree with you, honey!
Perhaps you can sit with him and make a reasonable agreement that when you are together for dinner or some other “date time”, even at home with cocoa!, that no playing with the phone or gacgets for a reasonable amount of time, whether an hour or two. You two can agree on what reasonable is in whichever case you are in. Make some guidelines, like whether a quick text is alright, etc. and work with each other on it, allowing for those special moments as they come in.
This will also mean you have to follow the same agreement on your end and show your respect and attention to him in return! You can always get back to the others.
It really is a way to grow your relationship in a new level.
