I haven’t been here in ages, but felt compelled to write and (vent) a bit.
My fiance is going to the US for 5 weeks for work next Sunday (17th). We haven’t been away from each other ever for that amount of time during our 4 year relationship, and it’s getting very stressful for me. I don’t know why, but I feel very sad thinking about it. I might sound selfish, but I get very emotional thinking of my loved one being away from me for so long.
I will be in Europe and I have our child to take care of so I will have my hands full doing fun things with my son, which is great.I feel complete with my other half, and he feels the same way – I guess we are very attached to eachother.
He is currently away to visit his family this weekend 4 hours away from me and he will be back home this Sunday – I couldn’t get the time off from work to join him, so we decided me and our son should stay home. Then it will be 5 days and he will be going again, then to US for 5 weeks.
I know for alot of people here, 5 weeks is nothing compared to long distance relationships or army/marine gf’s/fiances.. but for me, this is a long time, and I don’t know how to cope. I will be working, doing my hobbies, and ofc it’s going to be fun. But I am a bit scared and overwhelmed thinking that he will be so far away. 🙁
He just got this new job which will mean he will travel much more for his work, so I guess I will have to just get used to the fact that he will be gone more. He used to work from home, we used to have breakfasts together, much more quality time etc. Him being away feels like having a part of me gone (corny, I know!)
For other bees that has been away from their fiance or bf, what do you do to not get overwhelmed, emotional etc when he is away? How long was the longest “wait” for your guy to come home?
This was kind of a vent and some random thoughts. Thanks for reading and sorry for the long post.
