Do you both have computers? You can Skype. 

Is he always at the same place? You could send him an “I’m thinking of you” card.

MY Fiance works the night shift every other week so during the school year I don’t see him at all that week. I’m gone for work/ my daughter’s school before he gets home and he’s gone by the time I get home. We leave little notes around the house.

Write him sexy love letters to read while he’s away.  When my husband is gone, our letters are our main way to communicate, and it’s AWESOME and so romantic.  Sometimes written words are almost more powerful than hearing them.

If he’s scared due to past experiences, make sure you know what all that entails, and then do everything in your power to conquer those fears.  Reassure him by your words and actions that you are totally committed to him and your relationship.  Surprise him and take him out for his favorite meal, Skype, send him a pizza, send him a fun care package as a surprise… those little things mean the world when you’re apart.
