Txting and taking calls

When you are in a relationship and spending time with your partner> Is it acceptable for them to take calls during your "quality time" (I am not talking about sex time either, more like date time or just being together if you dont see them often)

No. I am here we are spending time together and that would be rude.

Depends on how planned/special the time is. There are times I get irritated, but mostly I let it slide. There are certain times that I specifically ask for it to be a 'phone free' time. He doesn't have a problem abiding by that when I ask because I am so good about not caring most of the time.

I voted for the 3 that apply to me at different times. If it's important than usually I won't mind at all, depending on what we are considering to be "important". Usually, I don't care at all, it doesn't bother me as long as I get the majority of the attention. On occasion, it bothers me and usually I won't say anything because it's so rare, why make him feel bad? BUT, sometimes I'll say something if we're discussing something important.

Since we're long distance, when we do get to see one another we usually turn our phones off and just spend time together. It doesn't really matter if we do text, but we only do it if we have down time or don't have anything going on. If it's just us time then we'll say something to the other if they're on their phone.

it's okay, though we'll usually make sure it's okay to take the call first.

It depends for me. We're long distance and as Mizznilla said, it can be a little different then because the time you get together is a little more "important" because its like, ya know, all you have.

That said, my guy has a really unpredictable job in media that involves freelance and contract work, and when his boss sends him an assignment be it by text, phone or email, I am totally okay with him taking the call, checking or responding whatever. The nature of his work doesn't really give him the luxury to just tune out, or else the assignment goes to someone else and his contract is void. Annnd then he wouldn't have money to come see me.

If he was just talking shit with his buddy from back home during the day or two we have together, I'd be a little less patient lol

Generally it's not a problem because we see each other often. But during a fancy date I'd probably be annoyed.

Typically, date night is no phones, but if he gets an important call I don't mind and he always keeps it brief.

We really have no choice but to take calls when we spend time together. It's no biggie. I guess it could become a problem if it seemed like one of us preferred to be on the phone than spend time with the other, but that's not an issue and life being what it is - sometimes the phone rings and you gotta answer!

It depends on if I feel I am being ignored or not. But more often than not I dont care.

I don't really care, but if he started making it a habit to ignore me the whole time then I wouldn't deal with it.

It really depends for us, mostly on what kind of "time" we're spending together. If we're setting aside time to be romantic and go on a date, we each ignore our phones. But since we live together and spend a lot of other time together, we're both free to answer the phone or text whenever we want for the most part.

I mean I am married and my wife in real life really is my secretary so ususally if she is on an important call its important because its my (our) business she is talking about. So if she has to be on the phone I just deal with it. She makes up for it when she gets off the phone though

I'm usually the one answering calls and the like, so when we have our quality time I usually ignore the calls unless it's work or something similar. If it's really that important, they can leave a message and we will get back to them when we're ready.

I do this occasionally, only if it's important and really can't wait.
