@SweetWildflower1:  My SO has also gone away for work he left this morning and he’ll be away for the week πŸ™ I too cried when he left … i’m a big sook!! I miss him soooo much already, and the worse part is that I don’t have any friends here either (they are eithr working – i’m on holidays), or on holidays overseas).

Lucky I have my dogs, weddingbee and tv hehe

I feel for you!! I’m not long distance but my fiancé and i both travel a lot for work (1-2 weeks away at a time) and it sucks. πŸ™

Know that he is missing you equally as much (if not more!) and take advantage of “you” time. πŸ™‚ make dinner plans with girlfriends, rent chick flicks, etc. You will get through it I promise! Plus while he’s away I bet your place will be more clean and the toilet seat won’t be up every time you go to the bathroom!!

Get skype if you don’t have it already. It makes a huge difference. 

Plan to do things you enjoy doing on your own. Remind yourself that you can have fun without him. Go try to meet people somewhere, join a gym or take a class in something. 

If you just need something to do, teach yourself a new hobby. Learn to knit on youtube and have a new hat ready for Fiance when he gets back. 

It sucks, it will get better and then it may get worse again. Keep reminding yourself that even if each day seems long, 6 weeks will go by incredibly fast and being apart will make you both appreciate eachother so much more.

I’ve been in a long distance relationship for 2.5 years, and he recently moved from 2 hours away to 10! I know how you feel…going from seeing him every weekend to every few months is tough. I’ve seen him twice since January, and probably won’t see him again until July for my birthday, and if he doesn’t come then it won’t be until Septmember!

Some people may think it’s crazy, but thinking about getting engaged and married and having a future together gives me something to look forward to in our relationship. I wouldn’t necessarily suggest that, but try to think of something that’s coming up that yall are doing together and get excited for it. Plan a nice dinner when he gets home, or come up with some other fun date ideas you’ve been wanting to do!

@SweetWildflower1:  yes! That’s what I keep telling myself…he had to move away and take this job so we can afford the nice house and vacations and other luxuries we want. and honestly, the 6 weeks will fly by and he’ll be back before you know it =)

My fiance is in the military and we’ve been LD for 4 years. SKYPE is awesome but we can’t even always do that. The first week or so after we’ve seen eachother is always the hardest. It gets a little easier. Not that it’s easy or enjoyable or you won’t miss him a ton but the initial withdraw is definitely the hardest part. Pick some movies or a tv series you probably wouldn’t usually make him sit through and get some DIY wedding stuff done! Working out is a GREAT idea! Find a book to read. Just stay busy and it’ll be over before you know it!
