I know how you feel! My SO and I are doing an 18 month LDR – we’re almost on month 3. I saw him 2 weeks ago and hes coming to visit in 2 weeks, but its really hard. 

Just try to keep yourself busy and don’t just lock yourself up and wait for him to come home. As much as you may want to (i want to do that for the next 18 months), its not good for either of you.


Plan something nice for you to do together when he gets back, and hug a pillow.  I like the smell of my SO’s shirts (when i can get my ands on them – much harder now ๐Ÿ˜› ), maybe sleep next to one of his shirts?

@ERsax:  This is all fantastic advice! Me and Fiance are long distance relationship too, he works 2 weeks out of town every 2 weeks. He does nit have cell service up in the tundra where he goes. Good luck! It’ll pass before you know it!

I agree with PP, I used to wear his shirts to sleep or put it on my pillow as a pillow case… Do something to keep you busy.(: Maybe make him a sweet surprise while he’s gone? I know it sucks when they leave, but just imagine how sweet it will be when he comes home!

My HD was deployed for 12 months with a 2week vacaion period. Yeah, that sucked but you will make it through! try to keep yourself busy, find a new hobby, or join a local group. For me, I would make him care packages (painteed, decorated and themed out!) The first few weeks are the hardest. I wish you luck!!!
