Hopefully the time aparts makes him realize how amazing (Im sure you are), and gets him to put a ring on it so that he never has to be without you again!!!

My SO went to Europe backpacking with only occasional emails as a way of checking in for 4 weeks… during this time I moved, bought a car, graduated university.. and he wasnt there for me during that time (not to sound bad… spiritually he was, i insisted he take this trip for himself)

It was SOOO incredibly hard, especially leading up to it and saying goodbye. It felt like the end of the world. But i distracted myself and surrounded myself with friends and family. and the time flew by! It made us stronger because we dont want to be apart for that length of time ever again! And now.. a few months later, it feels like it never even happened!

It will be okay I promise ๐Ÿ™‚

Communication, and make sure you take time out of each day for each other, wether is be a 5 minute phone call or a long skype session.

But when you are apart, don’t just sit at home sulking and waiting for the month to be over, go out and enjoy your “you” time!  Pick up a hobby and do things you enjoy!

I’ve been doing LDR for over 2 years.
