Wow, this was me and my FI when we were long distance. The time difference between Cali and England was really difficult, so my FI would stay up til all hours waiting for me to get home so we could skype for a bit. On weekends sometimes we left skype on ALL day.

I would feel guilty if I went out on the weekends because of that. Not that he actually said anything, but still– it was our only time.

Just be honest with your FI and let him know that every so often you NEED an hour on your own. Long distance is just SO hard– if getting yourself an hour of you time makes it a teensy bit easier, then it’s worth it. Let him know that!

If you don’t take time for yourself, it’s going to make everyone around you and everyone you love miserable. Take an hour to yourself to do nothing! Don’t feel bad. It’s in everyone’s best interest.

Taking time to vent on WB is perfectly fine!

No one is a machine – you can’t keep going and going and going without stopping to take a break.

Maybe instead of staying up late to speak with each other, you can do a bit more communicating through email? I write my friends very long emails and we write to each other back and forth like that. It’s a lot less time consuming than a full phone conversation, you can do it on your own schedule, etc.

Maybe you can schedule one or two days a week where you don’t call each other (unless it’s urgent), and take that time for yourself instead? It’s healthy for you and the relationship to lower your stress level even slightly.
