So i’m sure other bees who have partners with very demanding jobs can relate. My Fiance is a 3rd year med student on a very rough rotation right now. He’s at the hospital 6 days a week for 15-16 hour days and I just miss him! We’ve been together for almost 5 years, and I completely support him spending so much time at the hospital and don’t resent him for even a second. I just am having one of those lonely nights where I miss him so so so so much. I’m in graduate school too (studying to be a teacher) so I actually have tons of homework to be doing. So it’s not like I don’t have a lot on my plate too… I just miss him.
Can anyone relate?

I miss my Darling Husband because I’m actually away from home. It sucks, but it really does make the time together so much more special 🙂 (cliche, I know).
Make sure you have a date to look forward to! Really helps.

TOTALLY. Fiance is an electrical engineer who works on ships and oil rigs. He left 11/19 for a work trip and won’t be back until 12/15. He has no phone or internet because he’s on a ship in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. I’m just busying myself with doing holiday decorations for now…getting the house all homey for when he gets back! That’s the best way to make the time go by faster…

My Fiance and I are gearing up for him to go away for 11 weeks of training for his job. He has been gone for 9 weeks a couple of years ago for training and it was awful. We know that it is worth it, and will make our life so much better- transfer and more money after- but it will be brutal during! He is 3 provinces away so there will be no visits as well.
No words can make it better, you just have to let the emotions come out, cry, and then pick yourself back up!

Not having quality time together is hard. My Fiance and I have been in different countries for almost 5 months. We talk on the phone for a few minutes every day, but it’s not the same as being together and having real conversations. Tomorrow I’m fllying back to Haiti, so our separation will be ending. I’m so excited to be with him again soon!

Thanks, bees. Wow, I can’t even imagine spending as much time apart as you ladies have. I can at least feel lucky that most nights, he’s asleep next to me. I keep not letting myself really feel this loneliness because this is what I’m siging up for. Sigh. It’s just hard at times like this!
And you ladies are right–it just makes me really appreciate the time we have together!
