I’m thinking (hoping) this is just because of circumstances right now but, my boyfriend and I have almost survived our first year of LD and I am EIGHT days away from moving back home for the summer (we will both be home this summer).I have 4 exams coming up and I haven’t slept well the past two nights and even though it’s only 8 days until I see him again, I have been stressing hardcore! We usually see each other every month but this has been the longest we have been apart at 6 weeks and I feel a little disconnected from him, it has been tough! We agree that this is a little bit of a rough patch but the end is SO close. I just need some encouragement to get through these last 8 days/ encouragement that we will be able to reconnect once I see him again! Has anyone else experienced this?

you’ll get through it! the thing i always noticed was that during the time apart, time seemed to pass by soooo slowly and all i wanted was the next time we would see each other to hurry up and get there. the thing to keep in mind is that you WILL get through it. once you’re together for the summer you won’t be dwelling on those final 8 (7,6,5,…) days. and at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel!
have you guys tried skype dates? they’ve always helped me and FI out. granted you cant touch the person but there is just something about being able to *see* him. for awhile we tried to make it weekly date which made time appear to move faster.
((hug))) best of luck! be sure to let us know how it goes!

Yes! It’s totally normal.
Just push through, remember the good times, and you’ll be with him before you know it, and all of this bad stuff will melt away.
I thought we were going to break up last time I went six months without seeing J. I really did. I thought I would get off the plane and within a few days, we’d be apart. How wrong I was!

OMG @daydreamwanderer you just made me feel so much better! I’m so not used to going this long without seeing him and I think we are both getting tired of the whole LD thing because it is so close to the end. I’m so glad to know this isn’t weird or bad!
