I was wondering what the longest time of not seeing your SO was? By that I mean when you were seperated by distance without seeing each other, for example when you were on a business trip, he was on vacation or one of you was studying abroad (if he studied abroad for three months but you visited him after 3 months, say three months, not six) or so. Tell me your time, and how was it? Was it a problem for you or not?
Due to a business trip and visiting my family I won’t be seeing my SO for three weeks – The longest time we’ve ever been apart. I’m already wondering how much I’ll miss him and how hard it will be, haha.

it’s been just under two months since Fiance and I have seen each other, as I had to return to my home country until after the wedding. He’s getting here on the 25th though, I can’t wait!

By the time I see my fiance for our wedding day at the end of June it’ll be 3 and a half months. He took a job on the west coast and I am finishing up grad school/my school year (I’m an elementary school teacher) here on the east coast. It’s definitely been hard, esp with the time difference and I so can’t wait to see him for our wedding in another month and a half!!

Longest so far is a few days.. But I have to move for school so we might be apart for a few months while he finished his contract. I don’t know how I’ll handle it.

Three weeks may be a long time for most people. Unfortunately my man was deployed to a combat zone for 7 months. It was hellaciously hard not being able to see him or talk to him constantly. Other Military SOs can have to deal with deployments for up to 18 months! I couldn’t imagine! So I count my blessings that his deployment was breif in comparison. God bless the troops and their families home praying for them! Your three weeks will fly by and you’ll look back and not even know where the time went. Just do your best to keep yourself occupied 🙂 Best of luck!

Gosh, a combat zone. I would be freaked out all the time. You’re a strong woman.
My longest was about a year and a month, as he was stationed overseas. It wasn’t the most fun, but I think it improved our communication immensely. Also, it was an awesome experience for him and I’m glad he got to enjoy another culture for so long.
A tip is to send little reminders of how much you love them. It’s an awesome feeling knowing you can put a smile on their face when they are away from you. Good luck, and hope your reunion is blissful.

DH had planned a weeklong vacation with one of his friends when we were dating early on. It was hard for me! DH took an earlier flight so that he could see me sooner. We were so glad to see each other again!
I know a lot of people have to travel a lot for work and have to be away from their families, but I would be so torn apart! I’m used to having DH around. On the upside, that apart time can be great for doing all your favorite things that your partner may not be as fond of.

I think maybe 1-2 weeks? Business trips are the reason usually.

Hmmm let’s see…there has been a lot of times we have gone w/o seeing one another. I think the longest was a little under 9 months. My fiance was on deployment to Afghanistan.
My fiance was overseas as well. I can’t imagine if he was there over a year!

I met my husband after his 2 tours to Iraq, so thankfully the longest was 6 months. He was stationed at NTC and it could a week or 2 without a word from him.

I studied abroad in South Africa last summer for 6 weeks. That was the first time we had been apart for more than a couple of days in almost 5 years. It was hard but it also went by really fast. I was 6 hours ahead and with his work schedule it was hard to talk, but we each had build a bears with each other saying “I love you” so that helped. I really missed our dog too because he goes everywhere with me. I also had pics of them all over my apartment lol

We are unusual in that we’ve only had the night of our bachelor/bachelorette and the night before our wedding apart since we have lived together. Even when first dating the longest we ever went was probably 3nights apart. We are both raised in the same city though so no travelling to see family or for our work.

I would guess about two weeks because my bf is in grad school an hour and a half drive away and with our busy schedules we can’t always make time every weekend for the drive, but it is what it is, grad school is temporary but life is long-term!
