I was just saying on another thread...
CBF often forgets where I am (like when I'm in another city, visiting FBF) and calls me when he's on his way home from work. I have been taking his calls when I'm there. FBF has been very understanding and doesn't seem to mind. I doubt he'd tell me much if he did though. They two are very good friends. I only had one time when FBF called me, while I was at CBF's family's house for dinner. I took the call (we weren't yet eating), because I want to be sure they both know they're important, and I won't blow of either of them for the other.

Me, as the hinge, I feel some responsibility to be sure they both know that I've not forgotten them while I'm with the other. I don't think they give a fig about it, it's mostly my thing.

What GG said, you always have the right to ask.
Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own...

Me: female, bi, (formerly hinge of a vee)
with FirstBoyFriend (FBF)(moderately long-distance)
and no longer with CurrentBoyFriend (CBF)(who now lives in a house far away-with stairs I can't climb)

I don't think it's unreasonable to want a quick text at all. My wife always texts me if she's spending the night at her boyfriend's house, or if she's coming home late, and ever if I know she's spending the night she usually sends me a quick goodnight text, it's just a small gesture to show that she cares and it makes a difference to me. If all you want is a quick text, that takes what, 15 seconds? There are always times when you're spending the day with someone when you have time for a text.

I agree with other on here who said you have the right to ask, and I don't think what you're asking for is unreasonable at all, in fact I think it's pretty darn reasonable.
