I would have to pick letters everyday. He doesnt really know how to express himself through speaking but in his letters he can tell me how he really feels and the emotions hes going through

I am definitely going to say phone calls... As much as I LOVE LOVE LOVE to see and spend time with him, if that was cut back to only once a week I would freak!! I have to hear his voice to know if he is really okay... Just hearing his voice makes all the crap that is going on in life okay and I know that it does the same for him... Luckily though, we get 3 visits a week, 2 calls a week, and daily letters... I would hate to have to make a real choice on this one...

I'd go for letters- because they'd come every day, no long, long, LONG drive, no lines, no stress, no expensive phone bills or gas... plus I can re-read them whenever I want to!
This too shall pass...

As I can't visit, being able to see him again in person is what I want sooooo bad...I have a picture of him, and remember the times we did have and it makes it all the more worse for me...I cry myself to sleep most nights just wanting to see him soooo bad. We write already every single day and we talk on the phone 6-8 times a day. And even though we are only about a mile apart in distance...it might as well be a million miles!

Default Visits

Most def. visits every week!! I can see him and talk to him!! Thats more my style cuz with a phone call you cant see him with just letters you dont get to hear him or see him. So why not get both with the visits!!!

Believe it or not, I think I would choose the letters, just because of the frequency. However, that would be the least real time interaction, so that's a drawback.
He will ALWAYS be the love of my life..I'm more than willing to wait! Fiance' of an inmate.

Doc may have the say so for now, but not forever! They CAN'T stop time from moving forward.

I know me too girl! I'm so thankful I have the opportunity for all three! But if I absolutely had to pick I would go with visits. Just cause I get to kiss him, and hold his hand, and we get our picture taken. So once a week that's great!
All that I'm after is a life full of laughter, as long as I'm laughing with you.
And I'm thinking that all that still matters is love ever after, after the life we've been through.
Cause I know there's no life after you!!

He was gone from me for a good three weeks before my phone rang and I heard my baby's voice. I remember the incredible feeling of happiness to hear him so I have to say I could not give up hearing his voice. Phone calls for me. And hearing "I love you" and reading "I love you" are two very different things. And sometimes he says it in Spanish which just drops me to my knees. God, I love that man!!

I would take the phonecalls because at least I'd get to hear his voice... but of course it was a toss up... Visits are just as important... Heck, A few years ago I was trying to see about relocating to the city in AZ where his prison is... that way I'd get to see him Every Weekend

This is a really good question. My man is in another state, so those once a week visits would be hard to do. I chose letters everyday because that way he can tell me every little thing. I mean, in the past week or so I've written my man like 10 times. He told me that he loves it, and that he never gets tired of it. That's not even everyday, but I have comfort in the fact that if I want to tell him something else I can just write him again. I won't have to be so crazy about checking the mail either because I'd know there was another letter coming tomorrow. The phone call option is good too, but phone calls have times limits, letters do not.

I know the phone bills would be expensive, being able to visit once a week would definitly be an option if i was able to afford it. Other then that, i wouldn't mind communicating thru long letters every week. I like letters because U can take the time to think about wat to write & talk about then choose to keep adding on wen u got more to say. Letters r always fun to receive wen writing.

I choose letters. The no contact visits are to hard. I dont wanna leave... most of the time the COs have to drag me out. And I like that I can read them over and over

I would choose the letters everyday because you can always look back on the letters. If you get a couple hour visit or a 30 minute call when you hang up the phone or leave the prison theirs still nothing tangeable... I don't know if this makes sense to all but I really look forward to his letters because that is his strongest form of communication. He can really bare it all and put his heart and soul into his words. I don't get visits now so my only options really were between the letters or phone calls. This question is loaded though because if I were able to get visits it may be a different story because you can't kiss your man through the phone or the mail....
