I’m not sure why you’re away from your SO, but I can somewhat relate. My bf recently started working night shifts, so we only see each other on the weekend. I know it’s not nearly as bad as it could be, but it was just a big change after 4 years of being able to see each other every day. I have so much respect for military spouses and other careers that keep loved ones away for long periods of time.

I completely get you. I only get to see my SO for 2 days every 2-3 weeks, and it’ll continue like this until October next year. Going from long distance, to living together and then back to long distance is hard, but I know he’s worth it. But I miss him terribly at the moment too.

Same! But then we can look back to the times we had to go without them, and we’ll never take being with them for granted, which I really love.

I’m long distance (we see each other every other week for less than 48 hours) and the day after he leaves I always have what my friends call “SO’s name withdrawal.”  It’s a bummer, but you’ll get back in the groove soon.  At least you don’t have too long apart!

Aw I hate being away from my SO! Hope the six weeks just fly by. I don’t envy you!
