It will be worth it I promise!  I lived in CA while Darling Husband was back in Philly going to school during college so we were apart almost 2.5 years.  We saw each other every 2 months or so like you are doing now but I know its hard.  We talked ALOT on the phone, especially at night before we went to bed and texted alot.  I think the best thing for me was to keep busy with work and friends.  Do you have friends that understand your LDR that you can hang out with more often?  Ill bet once you have a date of when you see each other next it will get alot better because you will have something to look forward to. Thats pretty much how I handled waiting each time to see him – I knew the date and would look forward to that.

I feel your “moment” on this one.  By the end of the five weeks my Boyfriend or Best Friend is out of the country, I am so insanely ready to see him.  It’s hard being away from him so much.  When I get down or lonely, I focus on all the sweet memories of time with him and sometimes I reread his daily emails.  As he is on a ship off the coast of Angola, he only gets to call a few times during the five weeks he is there.  We have to rely on a daily email for our communication.  When you talk to him next, try to make sure that you have a more specific timeframe in mind.  I bet that will help, too.

I am sure that, when you are married, you will cherish each other all the more because of the time you spend in this LDR.

I know how you feel. Long distance is really tough sometimes. (And we are only a couple of hours away from each other.) When I went abroad for five months, especially, it was excruciating being away for that long. I give all of you (seriously) long distance relationships SO MUCH credit for staying so strong. I get to see my bf once a week or every two weeks, and I even find that extremely difficult sometimes. The one good thing about a distance relationship, though, is that feelings are so intense when you do see each other. (And the worst part is definitely saying goodbye…)

I’m so sorry. Hang in there. My now husband (from another country) and I were apart for 9 1/2 months at one point. It’s exruciating. There’s nothing you can do to get away from missing him. When you’re in love, every day apart feels abnormal. The only thing I can say is that it will be worth it. Once you’re finally married and together, you’ll appreciate all the little things so much more-waking up next to one another, cooking break fast together, walking hand in hand down the side walk-everything will be a joy.  Focus on those little moments you’ll soon get to share.

Reading your post made my stomach turn… my Fiance and I lived 600 miles apart for just over 2 years.  Do you use Skype?  When we switched to it, it helped a little – at least I could SEE him which somehow made things a bit better.  HE still travels a lot for work so we still (unfortunately) have lots of opportunities to use it.
