@Payless:  While I haven’t been in this exact situation yet, the Fiance and I have been long distance for about 3 years before. He’s PCSing right now and I totally see the boredom part, but luckily now we live together. It’s DEFINITELY helpful to stay busy, and I know that’s harder it’s slower at work. Encourage him to hang out with his friends, to work out, pick up a book, anything, whatever he likes! It’s sweet that he misses you, but it’s not a productive use of his energy to be miserable when he could be doing something. 6 months is a long time, but it’s definitely not forever!

my SO and i are both active duty military.  in the last year he has been gone for 6 months and at the end of the year we will both be pcs’ing…sadly, most likely not to the same base.  while he was gone i just tried to stay busy…travel, see friends, workout….the time apart sucks, a lot, but it is doable.

@Payless:  My situation was the opposite.  I was the one that miserable after Darling Husband and I got married (we were still LDR).  We would have date nights:  log into skype, cook the same dish together, then watch a movie together.  It wasn’t the same, but it helped!  We had a quick 5 minute phone conversation when we first woke up and then Skyped before bed.  If we couldn’t wake up and fall asleep together, we atleast wanted to be eachother’s first conversation.  I’m not going to lie, it didn’t make things a whole lot easier, but it made things more managable.
