So my SO and I live half a mile apart (no joke), but because of our schedules we only see eachother once or twice a week, and only for a couple hours (plus sleep). It SUCKS but I know it at least will only last while he’s in school.
On the waiting boards, everyone insists that spending more time alone and independent from your SO will help you pass the time until he proposes and may light a fire under him to notice something’s different.
And yet, that’s all I HAVE is alone time… I’ve gotten so used to being alone its almost like I’m not even in a relationship. We text every day but we never actually call… We’re both bad with talking on the phone and never have any real privacy.
I guess my point is I hate never seeing my SO 🙁
What about you guys? What’s your situation?

Currently… the last time I saw SO was a month ago because we are long distance (7000miles apart). Wont be seeing him for another two months. I miss him something rotten.
When we were living only 2 hours apart we saw each other nearly everyday, yup, you heard it right. I didn’t have college everyday so could stay with him, and he did a lot of site work out of the office so sometime’s he’d stay with me (if it were more convenient).
When we’re together again we will be living together and apart from occassional work trips will see each other daily.

Every day, we practically live together except for work and sleep. Lol.

I just wanted to add that we spent about 5 nights out of a week together give or take when we weren’t long distance. I hate being in an empty bed at night.

This is an interesting post…I live with my fiance, but I just found out my sister and her boyfriend of four years don’t talk on the phone during the week but text occasionally and then see each other on the weekends. I didn’t think that was normal, but maybe it is??

I see FH only on the weekends. His boys go to school near him and it would be a trek for either of us if we met up during the week. VERY SHORTLY we will all be living under the same roof and I’ll probably want alone then!

@kimberlyr22: My friend’s the same as you sister. I think it’s super odd. Even though SO and I are LDR we talk multiple times a week (even if it’s just for ten minutes) and he’s crap on the phone! Text everyday.

We were long distance (800 miles) for almost a year. Since I telecommute, I’d fly to his city at least once a month for a week’s stay, and he’d fly to mine at least one weekend a month. It’s so much nicer being under one roof, but that time apart taught us to appreciate the little things we love so much about each other. Like how my house was always too quiet after he’d gone home, because he wasn’t in it.

I used to be in a LDR. It wasn’t a real long distance, but about 70 miles. We would see each other every weekend though. The regular week was for my school and his work. I kind of miss being that busy and missing him.

When we were dating, we were in an LDR and saw each other a couple of times a month. When we were engaged, we lived in the same town but didn’t live together. Then, we saw each other most days of the week.

Fiance and I have about an hour and a half drive between the two of us, and see each other once or twice a week, but talk nearly every day. I’ll be glad when I get to see him every day! In the meantime, I’m enjoying watching crappy TV when he isn’t around, eating Nutella from the jar, and singing songs to my pet rabbit (don’t judge me.)

@Mrsgurzakovic: That’s rough! I can only imagine how you must miss him.

Before I lived with SO, (who became Fiance then DH) we saw eachother EVERY day. We lived 6 houses down from eachother

We moved in to our house right after we got engaged, but before that we saw each other 6-7 days a week. I’d stay at his house or he’d stay at mine most nights. We only lived about 15 minutes away from each other (by car).
