Hi girls, thanks for your comments.
I just visited my SO this weekend. It was incredible, amazing, passionate, fun, romantic… Off course, I cried when I had to leave. After a few weeks of being in a LDR I kind of got used to it, and it did not feel as bad as in the beginning. Now I am back to how I felt before. Sad, missing him terribly and yearning to be with him.
Luckily, I have met great people here and already have nice friends. One of them is in the same situation as me – her bf lives in another country! So nice to have someone who understands you.
Next time we will see each other will probably be in 1,5 months. He has to sort out his finances first, before he will book the flight ticket. I am looking forward to actually knowing when it will happen, so I can start the countdown!
Before moving here, I thought I might want to stay here for 2-3 years, since the job is so great. Now I am already looking at job adds in my home country, and in a year or so I will be actively looking for one. I can’t stand this and I want to end it as soon as possible (without sacrifying my own goals and career too much).

I know this is a very old post, but I was wondering what is the update of your situation?
Are you and your SO still together? Did the long distance relationship get easier? I would like to know the updates of your situation because I am in the same situation! I just came back from seeing my JC for two weeks! I miss him terribly and I am wondering if the long distance will get easier with time

Fiance and I were in a long-distance relationship for a few years. Neither of us had the funds or time off work to visit more than once, sometimes twice a year – it was pretty rough but I do feel like it got easier with each visit. The worst part is always right after you part ways, especially if you don’t have a set date when you’ll see each other next. I moved 800+ miles to be with my Fiance last July, and we’re getting married this October, so here’s your assrance that long-distance relationhips CAN WORK!

My pleasure! If you ever need advice or reassurance or anything, feel free to message me. I know being in a LDR can feel really shaky but if it’s meant to be, it’ll work out!

Hi there, I am sorry to hear you are going through such a rough time. Long distance is very hard, I have been doing it for 3years now. Its been different, for a while we saw each other for 2weeks and then were apart for 2weeks, then he moved to a different country so we didn’t see each other for months. Now we live together but he works 2weeks away and 1week him. It’s hard but we have a good focus on our happy together times and also we know that it is not going to be like this for long.
My suggestions for coping would be to busy yourself with your own hobbies/ study/ work and also sit down with your man and have a conversation about when and how the long distance will finish. You need to have a plan, simply not knowing will cause you so much pain and sadness like it did to me. Best of luck, be strong x

it does get easier with time. Granted, there will be moments when your desire to see him will be overwhelming but as long as those moments hits you once in a while, then it’s a surefire way of knowing that the love you have for him is still there. Many people are afraid that, without seeing the person on a regular basis, means the love will fade away but it’s not always the case.
I would say this is a great opportunity to show how much you love and think about each other besides physical touch. My fiance and I used to send each other long emails, letters, care packages, skype, and other little things that showed us that we still love and care about each other. Always, or try, to make time to talk to each other everyday. It strengthens your relationship and your connection.
I can’t wait until you reunite 🙂
