Hi Bees. I probably won’t be on for the next few days, as tomorrow we are packing Fiance up to spend a month working in Myrtle Beach. I still struggle a bit with the distance, so I would appreciate some warm/happy thoughts as we say goodbye.
PS – I know some of you deal with relationships that are much more long distance, but please be kind. Every situation is unique 🙂

You can do it! I know it seems like a long time but if you keep busy, the time will fly by.

I’ve been in an LDR for a year. I know how it feels. Just stay busy and make sure not to mope around and the time will pass before you know it!

Thank you. I don’t know why I am so mopey and whiny, we spent 3 months apart last year while he worked in Florida. I guess because he’s been home since September.
Thanks again 🙂

Stay busy! Make weekend plans! Seriously if you do stuff on the weekends it’ll just FLY by! Go do girly stuff–stuff you wouldn’t dare drag your Fiance to

You can totally do this! A month will fly by before you know it and he’ll be back!
Trust me, I whine and cry when I’m gone from my husband for 3 days. When you’re not used to being apart, I think it makes it that much harder when you are apart. Throw yourself into some fun activities and make yourself super busy this month. Join a gym or start running! Anything to take your mind off of how much you miss him, and the time will seriously fly.

Thanks girls. You are already making me feel better. I’m a sales manager/event coordinator for a hotel, so I have my weekends as such:
Weekend 1: Work Saturday, off Sunday (Mom coming up)
Weekend 2: FI’s sis and I are ordering her Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, plus event for 280.
Weekend 3: All other BM’s are coming for girls day, and to order their dresses
Weekend 4: Wedding for 200
That’s it! He’ll be home the next Friday.
That’s good, right?

We’ve been long distance for 5+ years. You can totally do it! Keep busy and get out and do stuff! (sounds like you are)

You can do it! Just keep yourself busy to keep your mind off of it.

saying goodbye is the worst!! even when I had to say goodbye for a week or two, it was awful.
I’ll second those who suggest saying busy. You seem like you’ve got a good plan with lots to do — once you settle into a routine, it will go by very quickly! best!

You can do it!!!
Trust me, I understand but then he’ll come home and you’ll be so happy 🙂 🙂
Keep yourself nice and busy and the time will fly by!

Update: He left this morning. I was going to stay home and cry as I made bacon and eggs (LOL) but instead I decided to go to work. He’s been gone about 3 hours, and so far so good. We have been texting on and off, so that helps! Thanks for all your kind words and well wishes 🙂

the month is going to fly by!
and no one should give you a hard time about their situation being ‘worse’ than yours… every situation is different, and they all have positive and negative aspects. if people try to make it into a competition or something, that’s just stupid of them.
I’m glad you have some plans for how to pass your time — are you guys going to get to talk pretty regularly while he’s gone? That helps a lot too!

You can do it!!! My fiance and I spent about 10 months being long distance (two and a half hours apart) and it was incredibly difficult, but it made us so much closer together!
