My Fiance went on a solo trip without me for the first time since we’ve been together. We usually take 4-5 trips a year, so I’m use to being with him for most holidays. He’ll be gone for a week, and it’s only been 3 days, and I can’t stop crying! We’ve been apart for weekend trips, and even a week when I went to visit family and to Vegas, but this is the first time I’ve been left alone in our home.
It’s mostly in the evening when I’m alone, I just realize how much I miss him. He calls every day and we’ve been able to chat online, but that just makes it harder, hearing his voice. I know how pathetic I sound because some people are away from their SO for weeks, months, even years at a time. I guess I just wanted to let it out!
Thanks for reading 🙂

Aww 🙁 I can relate. Fiance works out of state, and he has been gone since March 10. Although I have flown to see him twice, it still hurts coming home to an empty house.

I feel your pain sweetie. I’m used to having Fi an arm’s length away but his new job has him working out of state. I only see him on the weekends until this job is done. It stinks!

I know how you feel. Well, kinda! Since Fiance and I started dating, we have never gone a day without seeing each other. And since we moved in, we have never been apart for even 1 night. I think if we had to I would be a wreck! I really admire those women who can do long distance and military and such. It would be so hard and I’m such a baby!

Thanks for understanding girls!! I don’t like to whine to friends because I know they’ll just roll their eyes, especially the ones who aren’t in a relationship. Some just don’t understand!

@Rosie Girl. Before Fiance started his new job last year, I was exactly like you. I was a baby 🙂 I couldn’t sleep if he was out late, etc. Honestly, you just get used to it. When he left last year, he was gone for a full 5 weeks and it was MISERABLE. Now he has been gone for almost 3 months, and it is no biggie. You just adjust. We still talk on the phone 4-5 times a day, Skype, text, email, etc. Technology makes it much easier.
Fiance is actually coming home Sunday for 3 weeks (YYYYAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY!) and then will be leaving for another 3 months.

Okay seriously you’re not whiny. It’s just what you’re used to. I actually get lonely when my Fiance has shows both nights on the weekends.
Something about being home by yourself makes you notice the abscence more than if you were out or on a trip of your own.

Its ok, I too can relate. SO has to go out of the country for work in a few days and I’m already dreading the time apart. Maybe you can plan a surprise dinner for him or a small project like that to keep your mind occupied and pass some time.

I still whine like crazy when hubby has to work (which is often, about 70% of the time). The nights when he is away suck… you can’t sleep and can only think about them coming home again.
Ahhh the life of the military wife. Rewarding in some aspects and just plain crappy in all the others :/

Awww… hang in there!! I will be in your shoes next week :[ My FH is leaving for Vegas for 4 days. That sounds a little pathetic, but when we’re not used to being apart, it’s a little tough!

Thanks everyone! There are only 3 more sleeps until I see him. Unfortunately I will also be out of town when he arrives home, at my friend’s bachelorette party, so I can’t plan a nice dinner for when he gets home, but that would have been a great idea!
