And would anyone like to take a minute and complain about how much it FREAKIN SUCKS!!!
I hate it. We can only talk for about 20 minutes a day, when he can get service. I haven’t seen him in over 3 weeks. I hate making wedding desicions without him, but it has to be done.
End pathetic rant.

@lilgrizzlygirl: I’m in a similar situation right now.
Fiance and I have been together for 7 1/2 years. We lived together for 3 years.
In march he was transferred to the UK for work.
So since March we’ve been long distance wedding planning. Between time zones and long distance calling rates, it’s tough.
After the wedding I will be moving there. So not only are we wedding planning long distance, I’m also charged with all the apartment packing.

Im there too! We live 3 hours apart now. I hate it. I see him once a month but at least get to talk to him 2 hours a day. I am doing all our wedding planning over the phone. The worst part is that it probably won’t change much even after we are married. He will work away and only come home weekends. Waaaaahhhhaaaaa!

I’m about to be in one. I’m going back to college an hour and a half away from Fiance. Not super far, but he’s going to school to be a paramedic (very intense and time consuming), and has a full time job and a part time job. I’m taking 18 credits and hoping to find a weekend job so I have no idea how often I’ll get to see him 🙁 Of course we’ll Skype a lot but we’re both so busy I’m not sure we’ll even have much time for that. I can’t wait until he’s done with school, we’re married, and living together!

@lilgrizzlygirl: Yes! We live about 3.5 hours apart. He applied for a job, and it was a great opportunity to get on board with a big company, so I was all about it. We’ve been doing long distance for a year and have about 6 months to go. If gas prices weren’t so darn high, we’d probably see each other more. It really stinks, but it’ll be worth it in 6 months when we’re finally together and he’s making decent money…at least that’s what I keep telling myself. And luckily I’m driving to see him tomorrow! YAY!!

My fella is in Albuquerque and I’m in Europe. He’s having his final garage sale to sell the rest of his stuff and move home to his parents while I do the remodelling that needs to be done here before he can move over. I do miss his presence, just being together but Skype is a lifesaver. We spend hours and hours on skype talking. I try to take it in stride and know it’s only for a time. I spent May with him. Before that he was here for a week in September. The next time should be a charm, but exactly when we can make it happen is still up in the air.

@choolove: Eww. That would suck. He can call during the day, but since he works night’s daytime is for sleeping. Boo.
It’s so frustrating. He’s 13 hours away and even if I could afford to fly there (800 round trip) there is no place to stay, no hotels, and his ‘apartment’ is about 5 ft by 8ft…BOO!
Hang in their ladies. Distance makes the heart grow fonder.

I am COUNTRIES AWAY!..
* cries * and I wont even see him for the nxt 7 months. So mine just sucks!

Yes it does suck, sometimes I get really upset. I am better now though, I’ve had time to get used to it. We’re been doing long distance for almost 4 years now from across the country (different time zones SUCK) I just keep thinking that it’s only temporary. Soon we’ll be together all the time 🙂 and yes, video chat ia AMAZING! Finding time to use it however.. that’s tough. He’s always so busy with his last year at the Naval Academy, which I am trying to understand but it can be frustrating. I just miss him!

I’ve been in a long-distance relationship my entire 2 years of knowing my fiance. We only get to see each other for at most 5 days every month to month and a half. It’s been extremely hard, but of course he’s worth every bit of it. Unfortunately, the majority of our wedding plans will be long distance as well, and we’ll finally be together 3 months before we actually get married!!
One thing my mother told me I should do before I get married is to make a list of all the reasons why I chose him to share my life with. It’s supposed to be for rough spots in the marriage, but it’s really helped remind me why the long distance is going to be worth it in the end. 🙂

We’ve been in a long distance relationship for almost a year; he’s in California while I’m in New York. Wedding planning without him stinks and of course not seeing him on a regular basis isn’t ideal. But the way I figure it is that we’re going to have our whole lives together and that’s all the more to look forward to. So I’d rather be excited about having our lives together in the future than be sad about the present and temporary absence.
