My “semi long distance” relationship just convereted back to an actual long distance relationship a few months ago. Boo. But I’m lucky and still get to see my DH every 2nd weekend. How often do you get to see your long distance SO?

@cbgg: About every 6 months 🙁 It sucks. In the last year we’ve seen each other three times. The last one was a surprise when he came to propose, we won’t see each other again until November. Thank God for skype and facebook, if not I don’t know what I would do!!! Only ten more months though and then he’s mine!

We used to be every weekend but we’re now every other weekend. Although it’s harder to deal with my apartment has never been cleaner!

I haven’t seen FI in person in a year, and it will still be one more month before we are together again. We will be living together all next year, but we will be applying for veterinary residencies so could be LDR again for three years.

@pixiecat: Whew, you’re stronger than me! I could never last three more years of long distance.

@discodance: I think it helps that we are both very driven in what we want for our lives. We are both veterinarians, and he is persuing a surgery residency and I am interested in ophthalmology. We are both interns this year. Honestly, we don’t have time to notice we aren’t around.
I think it will actually be harder next year when we are together, because he is doing a surgery internship and I will work ER which is mostly overnights and weekends, so we will have opposite schedules a lot. It will be difficult not to get in each others way!

FI and I are both military, we’re lucky to see eachother even once a year now that we’re stationed in 2 different places. Luckily, we’re getting leave at the same time for our wedding in December. 🙂

We’re only 100 miles apart, I don’t if we’d count as long distance – it seems like a very long distance most of the time! We see each other every 1-2 weeks mostly, although we have gone 4 weeks a couple of times because of work schedules etc.

We’re currently about 2 1/2 hours away from each other but we see each other around once a week unless something comes up or we get busy.

I used to be in a 4 year long distance thing during grad school and I saw him about once or twice a semester

I see my SO every 2-4 weekends. We were long distance, then he lived with my parents and I for 2 years, and now we’re back to long distance. I cannot wait for October next year when I can finally move in with him!

- Wedding: June 2014 - British Columbia
My FH and I are in a LDR; four hours away in the same province. He works 10 days on, then gets 4 days off. So, we see each other once or twice a month.
I’m really HATING this wedding thing because I feel like the wedding is necessitating him taking up this job, as well as a lot of cut-backs on my usual hobbies and missing out on our 6th anniversary this coming Saturday. I especially LOATHE the wedding more that even after we’re married, he has to continue this job. We’re skipping Christmas for each other.
I really miss cooking for him. 🙁

We see each other every 3-6 months. I think on average it’s been about 4 months.
The six month waits were brutal. I ended up feeling like a single woman in those times. It was really tough. The 3 month gaps are doable.

It’s once a week for us unless something prevents either of us from traveling. We have about 5 hours between us. We Skype or at least briefly talk on the phone during the week. He has been out of the country twice now since we’ve been dating, and that was tough. He’s talked about trying to get a job out of the country, but I just don’t know how I would deal with that.
