I just dropped my FI at the airport to go visit his parents. He’ll be back Christmas eve, but I’m having major anxiety about spending 6 days without him. We haven’t spent a night apart since he moved in 6 months ago. I know it’s not that long and we’ll be together for Christmas, but I honestly almost started crying when I dropped him off at the airport this morning. Am I crazy or is this a normal reaction?

@daisy351: Awww sorry hun, it is normal for some people (everyone is different) and there would be something wrong if you didn’t miss him, sometimes this ‘first time’ is the hardest, I was the same. As time goes onand other trips come up it will get easier. Just fill your time you stuff for you, friends, family, hobbies etc and the time will soon fly and Christmas will be awesome with him there 🙂 chin up x

@daisy351: FH and I have been together for 9 years, we’ve lived together for 7. On the 7th I dropped him off at the airport for a 9 day visit with his parents, I felt exactly the same. The apartment felt empty, I missed him terribly. He’s home now and it’s like he never left at all. It’s amazing how much one person can matter in your life – when we do take separate vacations (not often) it makes you realize just how important they are to you.

I remember our first Christmas together (we badnt been together quite 3 months but I knew he was “the one”) FH dropping me at the airport on Cjristmas eve to fly back to NZ for 10 days and totally bawling my eyes out. I don’t think I’ve ever been so sad to fly home for the holidays! It’s totally normal. Hey, FH has to spend the night away for a business trip tomorrow and we’re both super sad about ONE night apart.

I think it’s a bit nuts, but hey it’s your life.
It’s a few days out of (hopefully) 50 years together. savour the alone time, and do thing you can’t do with him around like wax your mustache, or watch stupid tv and movies.

@daisy351: I’m in a Long Distance Relationship and for the first week after seeing him, I walk around like I’ve lost my mind… or better said my other half!
Suggestions, (Might easy it the pain)
Stay busy! Go see some free holiday events, concerts, plays or etc.
Meet up with friends or family, have lunch or dinner.
Go see a movie, one that he might not want to see but you do! Or see a movie that he would not go with you! Or rent a movie and have home theatre popcorn, warm pjs… if your up to crying grab a couple romantic ones!! Or old favorites! Or Christmas movies!
If any of your girlfriends are free have an old fashion middle school sleepover and giggle late into the night. Might make the night not so lonely!
You would be surprised how quickly the time will fly!

Thanks for the support ladies. I don’t ususally get so clingy and needy. He was even a bit surprised how emotional I was over the situation, as it’s totally unlike me. I did make plans with some girl friends and with my parents this weekend, so I think I’ll be able to keep myself busy.

Wow you sound so much like me haha. My husband was going to spend the night at his best man’s house, but he just wanted to come home. I get really clingy and sooky when I have to spend a night away. In 5 years, we’ve spent one night apart, and it was over the biggest fight we have ever had. I hated it.
