Communication

As with most Internet addictsusers, a huge part of my daily communications are done via the Internet.  Be it with e-mail, blogging, facebook, message boards or whatever.  Business and personal.

I read Kelly’s entry on how she found old e-mails that she had sent to her husband.  How he had kept all of them.  Documenting, in a way, their love and relationship as it had grown.

It made me realize that I miss that kind of correspondence with Tommie.  He is not into electronic communications at all.  He hardly sends or responds to text messages (I may be somewhat addicted to that).  He doesn’t have e-mail!  Really.  No seriously, he doesn’t.

I think we would have a better relationship if we communicated via e-mail.  He may be more open with his feelings and I think I would maybe make more sense?  Yes, we could write but come-on.  Who does?

Maybe I could try to set up e-mail on his cellphone but I don’t think he would respond.  He doesn’t even have his mms activated so that I could send him photos.

I’m not saying it’s right or wrong that he doesn’t have an electronic means of communication, it’s just that I wish he did.

    My husband and I communicate far better over Instant Message than in person. And we are horrible on the phone. Email, text, IM, etc works best for us.

    I’m so so sad that I lost my e-mails to my hubby before we were married when I got rid of my old account. He has mine, though, and they are hilarious to read. It’s cool how you can kind of let loose your words when they aren’t there to see you blush 😉

  6. Geez, my hubby and I would not communicate AT ALL if it were not for email! He knows already, that it’s the only way I can ‘gather my thoughts’ without him interrupting me and losing my train of thought. So he talks, I email, and it works 🙂 Lol

  7. Electronically, text messages work well for me and my DH. When I email him I have to state that I need a response otherwise I will never hear from him. DH reads my blogs, but never ever comments or even talks to me about my blog – I think he hates the idea of me blogging.

    At least we talk alot so in a way, it makes up for those times when we are apart 😉

    Tommie is alot like Edwin however Edwin tries more to reply in the most efficient way as possible. I keep all his mails. On one occasion we were having abit of conflict and I presented all these mails to him…… His lips hung on the floor with disbelief cos he is always saying that He loves more me than I will ever ………. I guess keeping e mail dating back to 2000 says alot …..
