Fiance left after 3 weeks.  back to real life again.  It always leaves me in a funk.  We keep reminding ourselves that after 2 1/2 years we only have 4-5 months left but it doesn’t really help or make a difference.  Same ol same ol’
@dreamingbee.  In some ways i would say that being engaged is a bit easier for me.  It helps to know that in a few months we will have the rest of our lives to be together and make memories so I don’t feel like I’m missing out as much as before.  Still sucks though and wedding planning alone sucks big time. Also don’t worry about making it for a longer period of time than before.  Its the same thing you’ve been doing just longer. you make it work

I know how you feel. I hate leaving after holidays, or any long period of time at all. I just get so used to seeing him everyday, and then it’s back to reality. We don’t live in the same town. Boo! Plus, I ALWAYS cry when he or I has to leave. It doesn’t matter how long or short of a visit it is. I hate it!

I have no advice when it comes to this. Besides thinking about the future and how great it will be to live in the same house and not have to say goodbye for so long. And Skype works as well 🙂

I know so many of you go much longer than I do without seeing your SO.  But it’s been 2 weeks, and I’m not sure yet if I get to see him next weekend.  We’ve been very lucky to never have gone past 3 weeks between visits, but due to work issues, we may have to go 4 or more weeks, and I just can’t deal right now.  I’m hopeful it won’t be an issue.  Thankfully, we’re (finally) down to under 4 months until we’re together again, but right now, it still seems like forever.  Stay strong ladies!

@Snowy414 Thank you! We didn’t end up making it that much longer, he made a *very* brief trip out which was fun and nice becuase it’s daunting to go over 1 month.

Like bethers, I have work issues on the horizon to so may have to go the dreaded “4 or more weeks” after this his upcoming visit on the 18th.

I just discovered Skype too. I was resistant to the webcam thing but it did help! We had a “date” and I even dressed up and did my hair like it was a real date 🙂
