I don't have a girlfriend right now, but I usually did at least a couple times a day but that was back in high school. I think as you get older it is less common.

If thats how youve been communicating with her its fine. But if you text her everyday and then dont text her for a few days shes probably going to wonder why you stopped texting her.. lol

Oh for goodness sake if you have a girlfriend, the two of you can work out what your usual means of communications are. Talk to her don't ask us.

Eh. Depends. It's okay to take time away from each other... even texting, but I would think you would text almost everyday until you're living together, married, or what have you.

90% of questions like this can be easily resolved by actually communicating with the subject of your confusion.

When I was with my gf there were times where we didn't text each other for months
We trusted each other enough, also we were extremely busy

I didn't, and tend not to. I tend to get very busy with work and often get home with such exhaustion I don't do anything and lose desire. Not to mention what do you talk about? If I have something to talk about sure, if not nope not at all.

Though this behavior has caused multiple failed relationships.

It really depends on the relationship and the dynamic.
For an example, my girlfriend and I met online through a group - despite her being about 1,000 miles away from me. When we were "long distance", we tend to message each other almost endlessly throughout the day (even before we were a couple). Now that we're living together it actually feels weird as hell to message one another online in most situations.

Like some others have mentioned here:
If you're currently experiencing concerns about this in your own relationship, communicate to your partner to determine whether or not you need to raise your level of communication (or lower it, for that matter). Some people simply want distance and "alone time" without feeling like you're always on their case/bothering them, even in a relationship.

i'll get a call/text every time i'm running late or have over time--

usually 40-50 minutes after my shift ended and i'm not home i'll get a phone call/text..

it's perfectly fine/normal to check on the well being of your loved ones if something out of the norm happened..

so i would say once-twice a day is ok..

but every 10-15 minutes.. that's paranoia

It depends on the people and the relationship.

Some people just aren't big texters. A better question would be "is it normal to not communicate with your partner everyday." to which I'd answer: generally, yes. Personally, I'd try sending a morning/night greeting and attempt some fashion of small talk for at least 4 to 5 days in the week.

As someone mentioned earlier, a longer distance relationship thrives solely on communication, but, at the same time, you cannot overwhelm them with more texts than they want. Communication is so important that, paradoxically, you even have to communicate about communicating for a relationship to work.

Pretty much just remember that "relationship" is just a fancy word for self-sacrifice. If you're one of those types that can't stand not being in communication with your partner, it's up to you to adapt. Stay within their comfort zone if you're looking for progression.

I wouldn't want to text everyday, I'd find that annoying.
