Just wondering if any of my engaged bees have a man that is gone while they are planning their wedding? My Fiance works on the road and we haven’t seen each other since the middle of September.
What do you do to help make those lonely nights not so bad?

my Fiance is deployed so its different but i have not seen hiim since the end of august and i won’t see him again until june. it is hard but i am naturally very independent so it’s not as bad for me. to help lonely nights, try writing emails. me and my Fiance been writing emails everyday (even though we video chat and text for hours everyday). it is a way of keeping in touch and just recapping the events in our day. we also use it to vent and just say why we love one another.

My Fiance lived in London for the entirety of our engagement…
We got engaged in Vegas in Aug, then he went home to London and I didn’t see him until I came to visit for Christmas and then he came to have our engagement shoot in March and then we didn’t see eachother until September for the wedding…
I planned ALL the wedding stuff by myself with the help of my parents (I was careful to involve my girlfriends too much because I didn’t want it to turn into THEIR wedding dreams instead of mine… lol) and by constantly consulting him via email and txts and skype convos he was involved probably MORE than he’d prefer… haha
I definitely busied myself on here when nights got lonely…
also surrounding myself with family members and friends that can continue the excitement instead of the loneliness… He’s back home in London now and I’m actually struggling with the loneliness more because I can’t plan the wedding anymore… sad isnt it?! lol
now I’m trying to focus on the future… LDRs are hard but you’re not alone!!!

Get hobbes. Create hobbies you can do together despite the distance. Go on “dates” via skype.

Wow, this thread was made for me. I feel your pain, OP and PPs. My sweetiepie lives abroad (we met on vacation and have been long distance the entirety of our relationship). We skype and text often, but it still sucks that there’s no one to cook for, no one to kiss goodnight, no one to hold my hand and pray with me…it’s been really hard. The reason I signed up as “not yet engaged” is because he said he wants to “make it official” in person, although we’ve already decided to get married, picked a date, and done a good chunk of the planning. My hobby at present = planning the wedding. It helps me look forward to when we’ll be together all the time.
We’re meeting up in December for vacation (we’re determined to ring in the new year together!) and I have every reason to believe he’ll propose at that time. This unofficially engaged limbo has been really weird.

He lives in the US. I live in Japan. We are spending August – August apart, except for 2 weeks at Christmas. It’s hard trying to find that balance between making the most of my time here, and wanting this year to be over.

Yes, FH lives in Chicago. We haven’t seen each other since the beginning of September. It’s been SUPER hard. I’ll get to see him for one night/morning this Friday and Saturday. I’m heading into the city (8 hour drive) for our pre-marital counseling. Then I won’t see him until Christmas. :/ Hopefully after Christmas I’ll get to see him at least once a month until our wedding. Good luck, Fellow Bees!

@coolbride125: I got engaged late last December, and, aside from the month I spent with my Fiance in June, I have not seen him since. These past ten months have been very hard on both of us, there’s no way around that. He’s been working a lot, and trying to keep busy – and I’ve been trying to do the same, but the whole situation still just really sucks!
Thankfully, my and my FI’s four and a half year long distance relationship will come to an end in just four more days. Needless to say, I am beyond excited! Good luck to you!

We skype a lot. It helps, but not as good as being together.
