Even though he isn't texting or calling, is he showing his love in other ways? Even if you call him, is he happy to hear from you?
A few people have spoken in other threads about a book called Love Languages or similar. It talks about the different ways people in relationships show their love - some are affectionate, some are verbal, some do things for their partner etc. Is he showing you in ways that you are not seeing?
We dont call or text during the day unless its for something important. If one of us is out at night we text when we arrive and when we are leaving for home but that's about it. I know he thinks about me during the day and that's enough for me.
My partner works away on a 9:5 roster we talk every night and he will txt a quick reply during the day if he can, he is not meant to use phone on shift though so its always short and sweet. He isn't a big over the phone communicator so in the evenings it's mainly me chatting away with him making comments but when he comes home he is always filled with crazy/interesting patient stories he just says he switches off when he has finished work he is introverted and at the end of the day he just needs to chill out quietly.
I forgot to say when he is home and one of us is out he is great with texting and will always reply.
Well I'm a bad example but me and dh talk at least 2 times a day and text most days, silly things or I send him pics of the kids if I've taken cool shots. We've talked on the phone every day since the beginning (15yrs now) so we're used to it.
Oh and he doesn't work away, we're together everyday but keeping in contact during the day is just something we do.

We never talk or text during the day...we're at work or on weekends we are playing sport or with friends etc. I'd feel weird contacting him during the day unless something major happened.
But even when one of us is away we don't talk every day. No big deal for us, i work away all the time so maybe we are just used to it? When I'm away we usually have a prearranged day or something when I will call, like 'I'll speak to you on xx night when I fly into xx'
My DH is a bit anti-mobile, (he still uses a Nokia 3410!!) so it's probably not surprising that he isn't that 'into' text etc
But I know my sis talks to her DH a few times a day and both of them just work normal jobs so they're home together every night, that works for them.
Don't read too much into it, I think the responses to this thread show there is a whole range of levels of contact that are 'normal' and work for different people.
