So I've been with my boyfriend for almost three years & he's away at college. Is it weird to be texting all of the time throughout the day? I always thought it was normal but recently he's been taking about an hour to answer & when I questioned him about it he said his roommates girlfriends go 8 hours without texting them & that they don't care about it. Just wanted some opinions on this?

Sometimes you don't feel like texting, it's a huge interruption to what you're doing and you can't respond for maybe 30mins-hour. Or you're watching a movie or something and you just want to relax. I text my girlfriend all day, she usually calls me once or twice a day. If i'm busy I may take a while to text back.1

Well firstly, it's not okay for him to be comparing your relationship to others. This is absolutely a big no-no in a relationship and something you just simply do not do, ever. He was wrong for saying it and doing it. Each relationship is different and works differently. Some couples text all the time, others hardly ever. It comes down to the 2 people and their dating styles. There's no right or wrong. Just cause it works for his roommate's relationship, doesn't mean it should for yours too.
If you want more frequent texting then it's a need of yours and he should be aware of it. If he can't fulfill or compromise then you two are not compatible.
Texts can matter yes. Like I said, we all have needs and things we want in a relationship. It's OK and normal to want communication in a relationship.
Me and my boyfriend text daily, sometimes quick respones, other times not. Depends on what we are doing and I know when to give him space when he's with friends and such.1
