so my fiance has been working 2 jobs for several reasons going on a year now. he works 70 plus hours a week and i work 45 but am always busy with something… we see eachother aa few times a week when we are not working or busy but i feel like i never see him anymore. its valentines day today and i saw him for about 2 hours half of which was eating dinner. i miss us time… meanwhile my friend who has been dating for 6 months goes away every weekend to some exotic place with her bf and practically lives with him she sees him so much. i am so jealous of them. i wish i had the time and the money to be able to spend that much time with my fiance… i apparently have never been jealous before cause i dont even know how to deal with these feelings. my friend and her bf are awesome together dont get me wrong it just sucks saying i wish that were us. any suggestions for dealing with these feelings……………………………

I moved across the country to live with my Fiance and when I got here I was working 8:30am til 5:30pm Monday to Friday, while he would work 4:00am til 12:30pm Tuesday to Saturday. By the time I got home from work and we ate dinner, he would have to go to bed, and we only had Sundays to spend together. I felt like we never got to see each other. I totally understand how you’re feeling.
That being said, I really don’t think a relationship can work without any “Us” time. You need to be able to see a light at the end of the tunnel. How did we work it out?
He was offered a better paying job working regular hours. Now we’re home at the same time and have the same days off. But it took a long time for the right opportunity to come up.

My Fiance works two jobs too and has done so for about 3 years now. His full-time gig is at night, and his day job, though it’s ‘part-time’ has him working usually 35-35 hours on top of his 40 hour full time-gig…up until last feb, I was working full-time as well, now I’m a full time-student and seems like I’m busier more than when I was working….it’s hard, I won’t lie. We really try and make the most of the few hours we have together a week. I usually do my best to be all caught up and free from school work on saturdays..but it doesn’t always work out. We do our best to make that time for eachother, and to schedule a couple of days off together every few months, even if it’s only to drive to the coast and visit friends or something. Ur not alone!
