MY Fiance was in South Sudan with the UN for 6 months last yr – and we pretty much could never talk because the phone lines there were constantly down and internet didn’t work.  2 months is nothing – you can skype every day, and just keep busy and focus on yourself and spend time with your friends.  You can always start looking into wedding stuff and be super organised when he gets back πŸ™‚

Fiance and I haven’t seen each other in person since June last year.  We got engaged right before becoming LDR.  It will be July before we are together again.  We are very busy, working up to 100+ hours a week.  It hasn’t been as bad as I though it would be, probably because we have no free time so sometimes a week will go by before I realize I haven’t had time to talk to him.

Ive been LDR with my Boyfriend or Best Friend for almost a year now  – we see each other once every couple of months. All i can rcommend is keeping up the contact. I know some Bees disagree with me on this, but Boyfriend or Best Friend and I are in almost constant communication, like we would be if he was just aroudn the corner. We probably talk on the phone or skype a couple of times a day and text every couple of hours. Its really helped us keep building our relationship as we share experiences as if we would if we were living closer together. 

I don’t know how the women who are in LDRs and only talk once a week to their SO do it. Boyfriend or Best Friend and I discuss it and its just not our style.

@realtreegal:  My husband is in the Navy and is gone more than he is home. I see him roughly one week out of any given month, if I’m lucky. I feel your pain.

@realtreegal:  Ya I feel ya. My Fiance works out of town 14 days out of every month. It has been this way since last September and, while it doesn’t really get easier, per say, I do get into my own routine while he is gone. Bonus is that we miss each other like crazy and just can’t keep or hands off each other every time he comes home. Absence really does make the heart grow fonder. I don’t know if it will be this way forever, but this is it for now so we make the best of if. Try not to complain and be too needy while he is away….my Fiance says it really makes him feel awful when I cry on the phone or get down about him being gone, because there is nothing he can do to change it. Try to be strong for him.

@realtreegal:  Yeah it’s hard, but I found concentrating on it made me sad, whereas just using the time to be productive with other things made the months go faster – keep busy and he’ll be back before you know it.  We got engaged before he left too, so I pretty much had the whole wedding planned out by the time he got home lol – all he had to do was pretend to look at everything and agree πŸ™‚

@realtreegal:  This week will be the last week of FI’s 6-week out of town job training. It has been HARD. We’ve never spent so much time apart, and I was miserable the first week especially. It does get easier, and I try to remind myself that it’s not forever, and six weeks (or two months) is nothing in the long run. We text as much as we can and call every night or Skype before bed. It will be an adjustment, but if I were you, I would use this time to focus on all the wedding planning you have to do πŸ™‚ go out with friends, see your family, try a new hobby and stay connected!
