My boyfriend and I have been long-distance for a while, and he’s now further away for an internship. He did pretty well for the first two months, but now he’s really depressed and lonely about it. He’s living alone in a new city and he doesn’t really know anyone outside of work.
I’m trying to visit whenever I can, but school starts soon and I have two jobs so I won’t be able to visit him during the week. I’ve given him books and DVDs and he has his guitar, and I text him constantly and try to call him (our phone service sucks), but none of it seems to be helping anymore.
Is anyone going through this? What else can I do to help him?

Have you mailed him anything? I always liked care packages when FI and I were LD. But it seems like the issue is on his end, and I don’t really think you can make friends for him :/

I haven’t seen FI for about a month and a half and I’m already going nuts! We Skype every night, text, and call each other. Every now and then we send each other stuff through the mail. He’s actually coming back next week, so I’m not all crazy about the distance anymore, but I admit that it is hard at first. The most important thing for the both of us was just communication between each other.
Just continue good communication with him. I hope this doesn’t sound bad, but after a while you’ll both kind of get used to the distance. It actually helps the both of you realize even more how much you love each other, and the moment that you guys see each other again in person will be 100x more awesome.

@asscherlover: No, I haven’t mailed him anything, but I’m thinking I should, just a little care box sounds like a good idea, though.
@MusiqueEstVie: I hope it does get better. Before he was living at home so he was at least around people he knew. I worry about him all the time.

Mailing him something sounds nice! When my FI had to go back home he mailesome my favorite chocolates, some socks and a CD he thought I would like. It’s was such a nice surprise!
