Well Mr. Tee lost his job last Friday so I asked him not to worry about getting me anything for v-day and to save his money and I wont even get to see him until March 5th (which happens to be our 9 month anniversary). For some reason though I am really bummed out we dont get to spend our first vday as a couple together. I saw him last Jan 15th and for some reason I am having a VERY rough time with the distance this time around. We usually see each other every 6-8 weeks do its nothing new, but each time we have to part it gets harder and harder to deal with. Not to mention now because of him loosing him job Im sure my “waiting” period is going to be extended. Sorry for the rant but I am just really sad right now..

oh, that’s such a bummer. I’m sorry to hear that your bf lost his job — it doesn’t make things any easier.
My relationship is no longer LD, but it was for years and we’ve spent many a Vday (and anniversary…and holiday) apart and it’s never easy. I also went in spurts of feeling really good and periods of feeling so sad and frustrated, so what you’re feeling is so normal. But I know that doesn’t make it any easier 🙁
don’t be hard on yourself — I used to get really down on myself about how sad I was, but truthfully, it’s tough to be apart on a good day, but when you’re apart when something difficult happens (like the job loss) and for a special couple-y day, it’s doubly difficult. hope things are looking up soon. I will cross my fingers for Mr. Tee to find a new (better!) job asap.

I’m sorry he lost his job. LDR’s suck (FI and I were LD our first 8 months of dating). What you’re feeling is very normal. IT still doesn’t make it any easier. Try to keep your chin up, and stay busy. I know that helps.

Thanks for the words of encouragement ladies.. I’ve really been trying to focus on school and other things and trying to enjoy our relationship, but I think the distance makes it harder not to let the soon-to-be engagement cloud my mind as well.

I understand how you feel,Ii would be sad too, not only to be away from the love of my life until March but not being able to spend Valentine’s together. I am lucky that I see my guy almost everyday because I could not deal with being seperated for that long!
