@Dizbee:  I can’t give you any ideas, when my Fiance leaves, I just mope around the house and eat ice cream.  *HUGS*

I go to the gym (every day actually) when my SO goes on business trips. My SO also hates broth-based foods, so I go out with my friends to ramen/soup noodle/congee places when he’s out.

I basically use it for me time and use the opportunity to do things that I know he hates but I love 🙂

Fiance is the first civillian relationship that I’ve ever had. I’ve always been with guys in the military (my dad was Navy so I’m really used to Military relationships). 

Of course you’re going to miss FI! If you didn’t, I would say you shouldn’t be engaged to him LOL! Try taking up a new hobby! Try jewelry making, knitting, a zumba class (to keep you moving), a kickboxing class. Arrange a weekly girls night to give you something to look forward to. 


What I always did for deployments was paper chains. I would make one of those paper chains we did in elementary school and make one link for each day that they were going to be gone. Every day, I’d rip one of the links since one more day was gone. It was great to be able to rip something, and to have a visual of how far we’d come and how long is left. 

Three weeks will be up before you know it, honey!

I send sympathies — My husband deploys on Friday! We can be lonely together. I really don’t have much advice for you. I play video games and play with our pets when my husband is gone.

I buy a TON of wine and overload the DVR when Fiance is gone on business trips!

It helps a little.
