So my fiance has been in Cali for business since Wednesday..I think its the most days we have spend apart since we met..he comes back tomorrow..
I feel like I did prior to meeting him and I hate it!….I went shopping after work, come home to an empty apartment..then start drinking wine and watch tv or get on the laptop..how lonely!! We live together so I’m not used to this!
Anyone else hate when their fiance isn’t around? I really admire you girls with the long distance relationships!

We used to be long distance before we moved in together! I hated it! If Fiance is gone for more than a couple days now, I get lonely…and scared someone will try and rob us. lol.

i feel like that sometimes but mostly i’m the opposite. We live together and spend so much time together that sometimes i’m secretly grateful to get time to myself with out feeling guilty about not being with him. does that make me a bad FI? ;-/

Actually, I kind of like it. At least for a few days. I have way less housework when he isn’t here! LOL. It’s fun for a few days, but I do miss him a lot at night. I hate going to bed without him. 🙁 FI’s actually leaving for business on Sunday until next Wednesday, so I’m trying to plan out wedding DIYs to fill the empty time. We’re also planning to watch Lost together via Skype.

Yes! Fiance goes out of town soon for work…and I am dreading it. Luckily he doesn’t have to travel too much. BUt when he’s gone, I feel so lonely…he’s my best bud and I hate not having him here to laugh with!
EDIT: Oh boy, look at that! I’m a bumble bee now. 1,000 posts? crap, I need to get off my butt.

Yeah.. I kinda like it! I enjoy just having some me time, but only for 2-3 days. Then I start getting the sad face. It’s kinda strange going to bed without him though.

Yeah..I could definitely see how girls can like it..its been 2 days now so maybe I’m just over it..not to mention I’m the messy one so I had to clean the bedroom tonight because some how in 2 days I managed to get half my wardrobe all over the bedroom!! Can’t have him coming home to that!..haha
Congrats VirginiaMarie on 1,000 posts!

My thoughts exactly, Lauren! We did long distance for the first 2 years and I was so independent and totally fine with it. We’ve lived together for the past 2.5 years and I’d still say I’m pretty independent, but I just got used to having him around! He’s is Houston this weekend for a moot court competition (he’s in law school) and I’m BORED!

Lauren – Awwwww ((hugs)) Doll. I am totally with you . . . *mixes herself another sf red bull and vodka* Fiance comes back tomorrow afternoon.
I miss Fiance so much when he is gone – I don’t just miss him emotionally, it’s like a physical pain and emptiness I feel when he is gone. I feel like I waited so long to find him that I don’t want to give up any time that I don’t have to. It’s like in When Harry Met Sally, and Harry saying “when you realize that you want to spend the rest of your life with someone, you want the rest of your life to start right away.” (I don’t know if that’s eggzachary what he said, but it’s pretty close 😉 )
But when he is home, it’s not like I’m his shadow or anything. 🙂 We totally putter around the house independently, but he is still here with me. There is a peace I feel when he is close – when he is far away, I feel less grounded and peaceful.

Miss Cosmo!! You hit the nail on the head! (plus i am actually making my 2nd ketel one an soda..ha)
It is funny..because if he was home he would be watching sports and I would totally be doing something else (probably wedding related) and we would be doing our own thing….I guess its just something about having him here.
Plus I hate sleeping alone…I live in nyc on the ground floor and i am convinced someone is going to try to get in my window when he isn’t here!

My boy’s gone until tomorrow night (since Wednesday night) and it’s weird and lonely. I don’t like it, though I did like getting to make whatever I wanted for dinner last night. I’m trying to fill it up with plans until he gets back, though – a movie with a friend tonight, a frisbee thing tomorrow. Still more fun when he’s here though.

Lauren: (before I type this, please don’t think I am making light of your fear re the ground floor)
LOL – We live in a secure, controlled-access building on a high floor. Sometimes when our neighbors close their doors, our front door rattles a little. When Fiance isn’t here it scares me. Every. Single. Time. When Fiance is here, I don’t even look through the peep hole before I open the door! *scratches head*
Thank you so much for your post – I feel better now that I know I am in good company! 🙂 So, from my Grey Goose to your Ketel One, *Cheers!*

Too funny Miss Cosmo! I have bars on my windows too so unless someone has metal bar cutters or a chainsaw they aren’t getting in…just something about have our men around!
I just saw you live in Georgia..my mom’s husband JUST got a job in the Augusta area..they will be moving there in a few weeks..I’m excited to visit (I’ve never been to Georgia!)

Mr. KM is going out of town for an admitted student orientation in two weeks and I am so sad that just thinking about it makes me cry. Mostly I have crazy anxiety about something happening to him cause, well, I would be sad…

My husband has been going away for business a lot so I know how you feel. Being home alone feels very lonely.
