I’m sorry you’re dealing with this. LD relationships are hard. I had one for two years. One bit of advice I want to give to you is to first live with your SO while you both have some stability in your lives before you get married. Eloping is not going to make your life any less hectic.

Best wishes!

@katiecat08:  I’m really sorry, but as cliche as it sounds it does get better. I have tons of friends who joined the military/national guard due to benefits, if you are over 18 you have a good shot of just getting placed at some random base in the U.S. long distance still, but at least some stability. I am long distance myself, kinda (2 and a half hrs) so I get the whole wanting to just go and see them and not being able to . but do your best to continue supporting him the way that you have. And like she said above, eloping wont solve your problems. I wish you & your boo all the luck in the world.

@katiecat08:  Would it be possible for SO to move in with you? I’m guessing not since he hasn’t done this, but I was just throwing it out there. I don’t think it’s a bad idea to wait to get married for a while longer since you met so recently, but it’s hard to do the distance thing. DH is currently very VERY far away – basically by the time it’s over, I’ll have gotten to have one one week visit in about a four month period. We also did 6 months LD when we were dating many years ago – honestly, looking back I’m almost amazed we didn’t break up. It was that hard – but totally worth it.

Four year LDR veteran here. I can 100% understand how crappy it feels to be so far away from the one you love. It’s not a death sentence though! It sounds like your situation can change at any time, so try to keep your chin up and look for another living solution that doesn’t require long distance. In the meantime, skype will be your best friend. Good luck, and don’t give up! Sending positivity your way 🙂
