Wow, what does he do? (Sounds kind of cool, lol)

What about letter writing? You could ask him to write you a letter before he leaves so that when you’re missing him you could read it & vice versa.

I dated a guy in the military and while he was in Afghanistan, just due to what he did (which he could never really tell me about for security reasons) he wasn’t able to call or access the internet a lot. He would write me every day and I would write him every day, then we’d put the letters in individual numbered envelopes and send them in one big package. Then we’d open the letters one by one each day, so it’s like we got to ‘talk’ to each other every day when we really weren’t.

My long-distance boyfriend travels for work and is also out of touch for a week or so at times. I don’t worry about him cheating and I figure that if he meets someone else, being in touch everyday won’t change that, but I do worry about him dying and myself not knowing what happened. So I feel you on the worrying bit. I do try to put myself in the shoes of people in the olden days who travled for work or even went off to war and were not in touch with their S/O for weeks or even months. I’m sure they worried too, but they just dealt with it and tried to put it out of their minds. If they could do it, we can too.
