  **HUGS** I completely understand. Fiance lived 5 hours away for nearly 4 years. I had a lot of those same feelings as you!

  Skype really helped us out during those times…do you guys use that yet? I would also maybe try to get yourself out of the house for a little while, or maybe try to do some things with friends. One of the (few) bonuses of a LDR is that you have a little more freedom to do things with friends and you can have your own schedule, yet you still have your SO.

  I don’t know if my advice helped all that much…but I have been there! It will get better!

I know how it is. It’s been nearly nine months since I’ve seen my Boyfriend or Best Friend (only a few weeks till a month-long visit!) and although we skype almost everyday, I get really jealous of friends who get to live in the same town as their guys. 

I feel you completely.

I hear you on the skype not being your thing! I travel for work alot and we tried doing skype but both ended up just sort of sitting there… awkward! 

Use this time to figure out new things you like to do! It’s an opportunity to go out and try something different, or join a class or something. Don’t sit there and feel sad, focus on making you a better you! You will get through it, and remember that if you can get through the hard times, the good times will be even better!

P.S. At least they are just making dinner! I lived in a tiny 2 bedroom basement suite (450sqft) when I was younger. My roomate used to come home with her boyfriend in the middle.of.the.day and partake in LOUD activities in her bed room. Ugh. I even told her that it was reallly inconsiderate and she just giggled and said “I can’t help it, hehe…”

I TOTALLY understand. That happened to me not long ago. My SO and I go to different colleges  so we don’t see each other a lot and have to wait to get married. I HATE it! My friend met a guy 2 years ago and she talked to me about it ALL the time! “Oh Jeff is soo cute, I cant wait to get married! blah blah blah!” They finally got engaged and she told me all about it, as if i wanted to hear all the wonderful details. Lets just say, we really arent friends anymore, which is sad, but it hurts to hear how someones life is so perfect and wonderful all the time. 

Some advice, get out of the house when he is there or listen to music. Also, write love letters to your SO if you can’t talk much. Mail it to him or save them for when you reunite! That really boosted my mood just thinking about how we fell in love and what makes our relationship so amazing and worth the time being away.

Hope this helps, keep your chin up, and stay strong 🙂
