I chose visits. That way I could get time to actually be with him each week.

I would have to say "visitation" especially since I do the Sunday's 4 hour thing anyway. I need to see him and I will save up my letters and read them to him, if I could. But not seeing him would put a serious stain on the relationship. If I decide to do the letter thing it would be no difference then talking to someone by emailing or like a pen pal. No offense, Ladies.

This is so hard!! But I Would have to go with visits for the simply fact of that face to face time a hug at the beginning with a kiss and a smile can always brighten my mood. Plus it will build up the suspense from week to week of what he is going to say and all the things i will have to talk about, just the thought of me seeing him again gives me chills.Boy am i glad i can get all three though

Oh gosh!! What a hard decision! If it's just a fifteen minute phone call every other day I would choose the letters. He can say so much more in a letter.

It would suck a lot if I had to choose only one of these. The only thing I'm missing from him right now would be the letters. The only benefit from that would be that he would write from the heart. But the phone calls are more important because if anything were to happen, if I needed his opinion for something, or if I just wanted to vent, I would know that he will be there listening and giving his opinion.

I didn't read the other responses, but a face to face visit, getting to see his expressions and touch each other even if only briefly .. yep, that would be my choice !

if my hun was closer to me i would SOOO choose the visits...but knowing the situation I cant....I would say calls but I'd rather choose letters because I don't have to worry about "the 60 second lady" cutting us off...we can write as much as we want...
and i just love opening the mailbox and seeing his letter....I act like this... LOL!! ALL THE TIME!!

~~~~~~~~~~DITTO!!!!!~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. not every day do we get mail
2. phone calls~ yeah baby!! I'm not rich, good thing my 15 min. GTL calls are $1.05 total- that's cheaper than your nearby .99cent stores. AHH his VOICE, it's the next best thing since I can't have him in my arms. Speaking to him there is no 'waiting period' for replys, we are reassured EVERYTHING is fine..
3. visits don't get me wrong I'll do anything to spend time with him, at times we can't always be that lucky.

Default Love his voice

It was hard to pick because when he was in CA i would talk to him everyday and would visit Fri, Sat, Sun every weekend and i would get letters at least three times a week... (never take anything for granted) but considering our current situation I would have to pick phone calls only because he is so far away now and I love his letters but i love his voice even more...I melt everytime i hear his voice...

Agree a very hard choice to make! Luckily we do talk 4-5 times a week, and I get 2 (sometimes 3) letters or postcards a week. I can visit every weekend, 6 hrs Sat and 6 hrs Sun, but he is 7 hours away and it is expensive to make that trip. I would definetly pick visits, if he were closer or I could teleport myself there
I am just glad that we communicate often and do have the option to visit every weekend, just found a carpool buddy that will cut the cost in half, so should be able to visit more often now

Visits! We on a verge of just visiting now that he been working full time and will be home in 4 months. Was getting tired of the daily writing & the calls were becoming to expensive.

I would love to see him since we are so far away. Saw him three times this year Feb, March, and June it seems like an eternity and I am longing for his smell, touch, kiss and general presence if you know what I mean so for me the visit is more important.

Okay having to pick one would suck. Sure I love my visits and I go ape shit over my phone calls but I do believe it would be letters hand down. I only have 15 minutes each call and while its that much more personal and so are visits...my letters are something I can bring out everyday and rehash on our love. I love to do it when I have the days that Im missing him more than others. Upon reading I feel more close to him. Besides if theres a tight spot in the month and I dont have all that $ for phone calls and or a visit..i know Ill always have my stamps and he has his =) Thats a must...
