    I think its ok, I’m in a LDR but I only see the him once every four to six months and even though I miss him terribly and some days are almost unbearable I do enjoy having free time and being able to do my own thing! We were together for two years before he moved (again very well paid job) and it has been almost a year and I think like everything there are good and bad aspect to it. I think it’s healthy to be a person outside of a relationship and being in a LDR gives you that opportunity!!! 

    The only difference is that I sleep terrible on my own haha

    I really liked the romance of an LDR.  The constant declarations of love via text, getting the mail and finding a new card/gift, plus the letters/emails.   It was a huge step to move to a new city and live together forever.  Plus … there is ME time, alone time where I can have my hair looking like butt, and my skin breakouts and I can eat crackers and cheese for dinner with out anyone else in my face lol.

    @Baal: I was in a LDR once, and oddly, I didn’t mind it all the time either. I liked going and doing as I pleased, for the most part, and I enjoyed the certain freedom that came with living on my own. I think your reasons are sensible.

    LDRs can be very romantic as @HisIrishPrincess:  mentioned. When my SO is travelling then the emails and texts are alway so special and full of cute things. When he is home they (the emails etc) tend to be more practical because instead of saying nice things we tend to show it through touch instead. But I kind of miss those cute emails so I look forward to when he travels because they are coming back. 

    Given that you have a sort of set timeline for when your LDR will come to an end I think it makes sense that you are focusing on enjoying the good parts of your LDR as it is now.

    I don’t think you’re weird either 🙂

    Fiance and I did the LDR thing for about 8 months, a year in to our relationship, and I enjoyed it. I saw him for a few days every two weeks, and we spoke all the time, but I too am a fan of my own company and I had friends who lived nearby so I never felt lonely. Plus, this might sound silly, but I kind of knew it would be the last of the “me” time since I knew Fiance and I would be living together after the 8 months. I obviously love living with him, but it was fun making my own schedule and doing my own thing for a bit.

    Mind you, our LDR was a 5 hour drive – not states or continents, so I might change my tune if that ever happened!
