@Mr. Coffee: Don’t let one bitter person rain on your parade of awesome-ness.

I seriously just went and created an account to comment on this page. Mr Coffee is clearly joking and is just back from taking a break due to snarky comments that were previously left on his posts. I’ve seen so many posts start with a joke, comment, lead-in to get people interested that had little/nothing to do with the contents of the post. Clearly he’s not mocking those who are left by their significant others and to imply that he’s being “funny” or “cute” in trying to do so is missing the point completely.

Jeez, over-react much??

I don’t see what the big deal is…read the post and you’ll figure it out.

 @KaitlinHudson: You reminded me of one thing that changes about me!  I have to go to sleep with the TV on every night that he is gone!  I get so scared at night too!  I have two dogs, and sleep with the doors ( even the bedroom) locked.  This is so foreign to me too, because I have lived alone before, and it never bothered me then… go figure.

First off, PLEASE don’t give up. Your posts are humorous and usually brighten my day.

Now as for the questions:

1. How long can you ‘properly’ function without your partner PHYSICALLY in your daily life?

Well, we did a year of long distance and saw each other once every month an a half and were fine then. Now that we’ve been living together I’d say I can “properly function” for a few days. I do have to say though it is much easier for me to function when I’m away then when I’m the one left behind.

2. What (if any) behavioral changes does your partner go through when your away for a long time?

When I’m away, he tends to play more video games and drink more beer. I usually find LOTS of empty beer bottles on shelves all over the place when I get home. He also usually does  an extreme clean of his fish tank or buys new fish.

3. What (if any) behavioral changes do YOU go through when your away from your partner for a long time?

He’s he’s away, I will tend to order more not so good for me take out. I also usually return my stuffed animals to the bed as well as watch LOTs of trashy TV I know he doesn’t like.

The hardest part for me about when he’s not around is I don’t sleep well. Every tiny noise wakes me  up and makes me think there’s a murderer in the  house.

jenna- I feel like it’s inconsiderate of you to tell Mr.Coffee to get over it. If someone told you they were in LDR for 5 years and only saw eachother twice of every year and you made a post about being sad, would you like if someone told you to get over it?

It can be hard to be away from your SO, no matter how long that is or how far.

Mr. Coffee, seriously don’t worry about that comment!

And to answer your question, about 5 minutes ๐Ÿ™‚ We hate being apart. I can’t sleep when he’s away and I was at a work dinner on Tuesday and by 9:00pm he was texting me saying he hated bachelor life ๐Ÿ™‚

When we’re apart from each other we’re just reminded how wonderful our lives are now. I guess it’s a good thing, but I still hate being apart ๐Ÿ™‚

PS It was really nice when we worked in the same building (for different companies). Even if we weren’t meeting up for lunch or going home together, it was nice knowing he was two floors below me.

@Mr. Coffee: you could also think about all the couples/families that are serving the military and are away from their loved ones for MUCH MUCH MUCH longer than a week (not to mention, the risks they are facing).  That might help put your week in perspective.

Hm, I have a little bit of a different perspective. The Mr and I only see eachother on weekends right now (stupid LDR). So I have sort of “trained” my body in a way that I am used to not seeing him weekdays. Do I like it? No. Do we have to deal with it? Yes. There are some weeks (actually this weekend being one of them) where one of needs to go out of town, or have a prior obligation, etc and it will be 2 weeks between visits. When this happens it normally effects me. But by the time the week rolls around, my head goes back to “normal” since its our norm.

Wow, I totally didnt answer the three questions. Woops!

Unfortunately Mr. Coffee we all have to deal with the sour pusses on here from time to time. I almost had my head ripped off for condoning the use of a tanning bed…you’re good at making a joke so just laugh it off! Put the blinders on to the haters and you’ll be juuuuust fine. Most of us love you don’t worry ๐Ÿ™‚

Back on topic. My man and I just did 4 months apart. It was brutal. I think after a couple of weeks (which is normal for us because of his work) I start to fall apart. I get into “hermit” mode as my friends like to call it. This includes: FI’s giant sweatpants (I wouldn’t reccomend wearing Miss coffee’s pants…unless you’re into that), a tub of ice-cream (mmmmm shallow happiness), and lots and lots of box sets of grey’s anatomy and sex in the city (sub-in Mr. Coffee’s favourites). ๐Ÿ˜‰
