When your DH/SO leaves for work... Dovahkiin 1 child; 1 angel baby; Kentucky 16776 posts

Does he call/text you when he gets there so you know he got there safely?



I ask my s/o to do this because I've lost two friends in car accidents and I'm really paranoid about them.

Yes, he knows it helps with my anxiety.

I never ask him to, yet he does it all the time. He works overnight and most nights we talk all night so I think that's why I'm not paranoid that much.

Only if he takes his bike. That's the only time I worry so he texts me that he made it safe.

This. I'd actually be annoyed anyway. He works early and I'm still asleep lol. We text through out the day though but I've never worried about him.

He's usually gone before I even wake up (kisses me every morning before he leaves though), so I usually text him good morning once I'm out of the shower and sometimes we'll text back and forth for a few, other times it's just a good morning text. Sometimes he won't text me back, but that's only if he's busy at the job site. I don't really worry much though because his work buddy picks him up every morning and they just drive straight to the job site in the work van.

Never. Last time he texted me at work was 2 years ago. But he works 5 mins away from our place.

Nope never. He rides public transport though. He will usually call me if the trains are stopped or really busy, just to kill time. But not to check in. He usually just gets straight into his work when he gets their. He's a manager and gets really busy so I don't usually hear from him til he leaves work and tells me he is on his way home. (Just so I can have dinner warmed up in an hour)

We don't live together, yet he texts me every morning at 520 when he gets up and leaves for work. Then again at 745 before his first class starts (he's a teacher).. It annoys the hell out of me. I love him dearly, but I love to sleep too.
