My FH will be getting home from a 5 day business conference tomorrow, so I know where you’re coming from! I hate it when he leaves ๐Ÿ™ I don’t have any advice on how to get through it…just be tough, and know that he’ll be home soon ๐Ÿ™‚

To help get your mind off of him being gone, you should schedule some nights out with friends. Maybe some people you don’t see often enough. I know that’s what’s been helping me get through my LDR.

Keep busy!!!  Plan times out with girlfriends, get housework done that you have on your to-do list, go out to a movie/spa.  Occupy your time and it’ll fly by!

ETA: I am so jealous that you only have to have your guy gone for a few days… my hubby is leaving soon for a year for the military and most of that time we won’t be able to communicate except through letters.  So, sometimes it’s a blessing to only have him gone for a few days because it could be worse!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Talk to some women who have a SO in the military, I’m sure they can give you advice.

4 days isn’t so bad. My FH is stationed in CA and I live in KY the day after we got engaged I had to go back home and we won’t get to see each other till we get married. We won’t get to live together the first year of our marriage because he deploys to Afganistan. Just keep busy and make lots of plans with your friends. The time will fly by.

I know it’s tough but you need to take it day by day.  Find things to keep yourself busy so you don’t just sit around and think about how much you miss him.  It was the worst for me when we first moved and didn’t have money so I couldn’t go anywhere or do anything.

Yup. Fiance is home on leave for another 17 days and then he is gone for 6 months.  And he is gone where he could be hurt.  And he is gone where communication back home is difficult.

So while I do understand that the separation is hard, you should buck up and count your lucky stars it’s only for a week.

I know exactly how you feel!! I am going on a 4 day trip with my sister in 2 weeks (!!) and then on a 3 day trip a month later for work. hubs and I haven’t been a night apart in 4 years, and I am definitely bummed but we will both have to get used to it with the job that I have now. 

Like others have said, keep yourself busy!

I am actually in the same situation!  My SO is going away for a bachelor party weekend.  These two nights will be the first two nights I have spent away from him in over 7 months!  I’m nervous about spending the night alone in our apartment, but I’m also nervous about me going crazy with worry while he’s gone.  I also have not gone a day without seeing him in sooo long, even before we moved in together they were few and far between.  No getting around it, I love spending time with him and we are together so much that it’s just gonna suck ๐Ÿ™  Hang in there girl!
