@love2bfit:  Everything will be alright and sometimes the hardest part of being in a relationship is havng to encourage what hurts you most. My FI (bodyfriend at the time) and I never went through long distance throughout our first three years but he had a strong call to join the military. I just couldn’t picture not being with him (we had plans to move in together and start college) but in then end I had to support something I didn’t want. 

You guys will both be alright and as long as a day with him is worth a month without then you are fine. HUGS! Best of luck darlin!

@love2bfit:  Being apart sucks, it does 🙁 My FI and I have been apart for a year, and looking at at least another one to go. We’re engaged. Honestly, it was good for the relationship, good for me. Having something to look forward to. a definite date when we would be together for sure, made it easier, helped my sanity. It’s helped his as well. Its so frustrating when everything is perfect, except, you’re hours apart. I’m sorry sweetyb:(

@love2bfit:  I wouldn’t say I have it tougher because I think the feeling of loneliness and longing is the same no matter the cause in a LDR. Only difference would be some fear during deployment but I think that is about all there is. The key is to keep your faith strong and hope high! You guys will be able to move in together someday and when that day comes you will have such a happy home! Keep looking forward to the little things that will make this all worht while!

@love2bfit:  It’s great that you’re so supportive!!!

My boyfriend is moving to Tennessee in August for a two year Master’s and I’m probably starting mine in Fall ’14 in PA meaning we’re looking at a solid 3 years long distance (we’ve already done it for 2 years I’m sick of it!!)

And this is probably going to sound super silly but what we love is planning out an elaborate trip. We don’t even go far! We spent our 3 year anniversary in Ithaca (~4 hrs away) and we spent 6 months planning it (just little stuff like looking at yelp reviews for restaurants, finding hiking trails nearby, looking up the history of the city, and of our b&b -which was part of the underground railroad-awesome!!! etc). It became like a mini project for the two of us and helped the months fly by.

Another fun thing that we’re doing is we’re filling in a photo album together and making a “Distance journal” (so cheesy I know!) where we each write a few letters and then hand it off at our next meeting and then that person reads what the other wrote and writes some things. It’s actually cute and I love looking over it! I’ve pasted in copies of emails and written down sweet texts taht he’s sent me.

Oh gosh I totally get why you are feeling this way. My FI and I were long distance for 3 years, England to California. It’s still new that he lives with me now!

Always have times with him that you are looking forward to, and keep up the faith! It will work out! And after 4.5 years you guys obviously have a really strong relationship and bond to have kept it going. skype skype skype!!
