A different question, but for all to answer.

So the other day I was on here and I read a post from someone about how their husband sometimes get upset because the computer seems more important that being with them.

So question is, how much time do you spend on TK a day? Does your FI or H get upset about you being on TK?

While at work or during the day how much time do you spend on TK? Do you still feel like you get all your work done?

    My answers,

    how much time do you spend on TK a day? 2 to 3 hrs work days 4 to 5 on non work days

    Does your FI or H get upset about you being on TK? when he actually wants to talk or just be with me, he gets a tad upset about me being on here so I put it away till after he goes to bed.

    While at work or during the day how much time do you spend on TK? it is always up but I check it when i need a break from making calls or when there is nothing for me to do.

    Do you still feel like you get all your work done? Yup.

    I spend most of my TK time at work (I guess I'm either really good at time mangement or I just don't have much work to do). H doesn't give two hoots about the time I spend on the computer at home and I don't give two hoots about what he does either. 80% of the time we're using the computer for work 10% we're reading news and 10% we're surfing YouTube. 

    I guess some major factors for us are the fact that we're pretty active and we spend a lot of time together, TK is the only chat room I go on and H goes on one chat room relating to a hobby of his. Neither of us are into porn and we both trust that the other person isn't trolling sleezy dating sites. Neither of us would use the computer for something we wouldn't look at if the other person were standing right behind us.

    I'm never on TK when I'm home. It's my work distraction. I don't know how many hours, but way too many.

    It makes no difference to my FI because right now we're only able to communicate via the internet! 

    The only thing is instead of looking at TK i should be looking for a job! preferable one that allows me to still look at TK ;)

    This. I haven't had enough work lately, so it's a source of entertainment. I'm not on it constantly, I'll do some work for an hour or more and then hop on for a few minutes.

    H is on the computer a lot at night. If we're sitting around doing nothing together it doesn't really bother me. If I'm doing projects or housework and he's sitting on his a$$ not helping, yes, then it does. But he works so much in the summer that I give him as much down time as he wants right now.

    <div>Same here.  My at home distraction is reading, and yes, sometimes H gets annoyed if I don't pay attention to him while I'm reading, but he'll tell me, so I'll stop for a bit and just hang out with me.  I'll do the same with him if he's on the computer a lot at home and I want to hang out.</div>

    It really depends. I'm a teacher, so I spend much more time on the Internet in general during the summer or holiday breaks. During the school year, I might be on the computer for 1-2 hours a night if that.

    I don't Knot at all at work. First, it's against my school's policy to use the work computers for personal stuff. Second, I'm teaching. I have no time to Knot at work even if I wanted to.

    My H doesn't get upset when I'm on TK or the Internet. A lot of times at night, we'll each do our own thing (he's really into fantasy sports so he's on his laptop too) while we watch a show we like or something, but we make it a point to put down the computers and spend time together without them.

    Lately, we've been doing work on the house we just bought in the evenings, so both of us have been on the computer considerably less.

    I never go on TK at work. I'm too busy and even if we have downtime, we're not supposed to use the computers for personal use. At home, I usually check it a few times a day but only really a few boards (especially the one I mod). If I get bored I'll go lurk on some of the other boards. FI doesn't really care since he's usually playing a game or something on the other computer, or he's working late anyways. I think our bigger "problem" is video games. I don't play a LOT anymore but when I get into a playing mood I can easily spend hours on it. We're pretty good about keeping our priorities straight though (unlike an ex I actually broke up with years ago because the game really WAS more important than me!).

    I spend about 5 hours a day on here. =X Fiance could careless about what I do with my free time.. (He is always busy playing video games anyways.)  The only time I go on the knot at work is if I'm on my lunch break.

    For me I used to spend wayyyy too much time on the computer...hours on end actually.
    I realized how badly my FI was affected and I barely go on it at home anymore.
    I have my iPhone and I use it periodically at home but not compared to how I used.
    Now he really doesn't mind since we have to be on it to get the planning and research done for the wedding.

    At work it's different. I get my work done but I have the freedom of going on sites and whatnot.

    So question is, how much time do you spend on TK a day? That would be hard to say because it differs every day. I check it here and there if I get time during the day. After my kids go to bed, I have it up while I plan the renewal, Facebook with friends, pay bills, plan the upcoming school year, etc.

    Does your FI or H get upset about you being on TK? No. He's rarely home, so I don't hang out on the computer in my free time when he is.

    While at work or during the day how much time do you spend on TK? It varies A LOT, but I've started putting it up when I turn on my computer for the day and just keeping it up so I can pop in and out when I can.
     
    Do you still feel like you get all your work done? Most days, but I have been known to get a little sidetracked on the computer occasionally and need to be reminded supper needs made (like my 8 yo just did! LOL).
