I message them whenever tf I want. If I wanna talk to them, I tell them. I'll send them funny pictures with no context, I'll send random song lyrics/links. I'll tell them something funny that happened to me, so in general, a lot. if im dating someone it usually means I love talking to them
I personally message them daily, whenever we have the opportunity and she's not busy. Then ask to meet up/Hang out because messaging is no where near as fun as being with them in person lol ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
I am not a big fan of texting, Too impersonal If she has something to say to me I had rather her look me in the eye and say it. And don't even get me started on trying to text whole conversations, pretty sure I would prefer being single. I was going to say it was an age thing But my girlfriend is 40 and loves to text.
