My husband has a career where he is away every other week on site. He’s not real far away (20 miles), but it might as well be 2000 miles. I was doing OK with it since we had come off of a long distance relationship, however my husband seems real concerned about our time and distance apart because of his past experiences. Now I’m afrad that he feels an emotional drift on his part. I feel connected with him; not sure about him. WhenI spend the night where he is, he seems to maintain his distance, which makes me feel uncomfortable and not want to go visit him.
Need some coping help, PLEASE!

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.
