No need to distract myself-  I quite enjoy an evening on my own. Just take advantage of the free time and do something he doesn’t like to do. Go out with a girlfriend for dinner and a movie, stay home and have a bath and a glass of wine, or two , or more.

me? judge? wine? will never happen!- even though it’s just past noon here. I have been known to have a glass of wine on the patio with or instead of lunch.

This is coming up for me, but I’ll be in the middle of exams, frantically grading my ass off. So, distraction should take care of itself.

It’s funny because my guy likes to pretend he’s totally fine with going off on trips without me. I encourage him to do it! But I swear the second he’s out the door, he’s on the phone to me. It’s kind of funny because I now know not to make too many plans while he’s gone.

I realize that this makes him sound clingy, but it’s actually not quite like that. We legitimately like each other’s company. We’re best friends, and when we hear other couples talk about needing to get away from each other, we just don’t get it. Whether it’s discussing the political news of the day or something funny we saw online, we legitimately like talking to one another.

That said, if I did have a night with him truly gone and busy, I’d probably sit down with a big old bottle of wine and catch up on some chick flicks and the like that he won’t watch. Maybe do some reading. I know, I’m not too exciting. If I knew about the time away far enough in advance, I’d make plans to go see my girlfriends who live in DC.
