    Awww. I am so sorry! I used to cry a lot when I was in a LDR via living at school with my ex. Things didn’t work out with us because he was a cheating bag of dirt, but when I was in love with him, I was in LOVE! lol 

    I think it’s pretty normal to cry like that. I cry a lot even still when Fiance has a stretch of days or weeks when we can’t even talk to each other (really, we sleep on opposite ends of the day)!

    Oh I was so confused when I clicked back over onto this post. I was like “Am I really that tired?” Haha, I guess I need to go to bed. 

    To answer your new question, we usually text, or talk on the phone if we can. Like I said, we’ll sometimes wake each other up if we have to talk on the days where we’re sleeping on odd schedules. We even skype sometimes! I bought a web cam so I can talk to him when I am craving his face the most. That might be a good investment for you guys. It really works well.

    haha, I was so confused when I read the first reply here…

    we mostly use gchat and skype (depending on how much time we have). I email him a lot too, but he rarely emails me. He’s busier than I am. 🙂

    lol, i was confused too! but we use whatever we can get. mostly IM but do txt/call and skype. i email him occassionally, usually when i can’t reach him any other way, so its not that often. he knows if he receives an email that he needs to check in quick! lol

    Mainly voice chat through Yahoo Messenger. We also text a lot, and use email and instant messaging. We send cards/notes/packages regularly. We try not to use the phone too often, we only resort to it if one of us is without a computer for some reason.

    We text a lot and talk about 3 times per week – usually just regular phone because the computers that he can use for Skype are in a room with lots of other computers/people so he has to keep his voice WAY down.  I’ve been buying phone cards to be able to call him on his cell phone in Africa (where he is) and he’s able to buy them there too.  Just over 9 weeks to go!!!

    hahaa… I checked all of them, but we text during the day, and the talk each night on the phone, and sometimes webcam/skype.


    We are in Alaska and California.  :S  I get to see him in 5 days!!  😀
