    @weddingguest101:  Being apart from a loved one is hard. I will give you that. But it is not impossible. And 12 days is nothing ๐Ÿ™‚ My Fiance and I have been apart– the longest– about 6 months. One year we only saw each other for 4 (1) week segments 3 months apart. You will survive. Hang with girlfriends and start some new hobbies– try to talk every day if you can!

    I don’t like being away from my boyfriend for a long time, either. I went to Portland for 3 weeks and we ended up planning for him to come up on the middle weekend. But… you’ll get through it. Have fun with your girlfriends and enjoy it!

    I think you’re overreacting. I totally understand that you rarely get to see eachother, but your LDR will be over soon and 12 days will be over faster than you think. Plus, if it’s for his bachelor party I don’t see how it could be any other time than the weekend! I think that making plans with your friends is a great way to distract yourself. Are you planning on having your bachlorette party the same weekend? That could be a great idea, too :).

    Keep busy and plan a weekend with the girls – get all pretty and hit up all those spots you haven’t in a long time!  It’s only 12 days & I bet they will fly.  Just keep in mind that you two will be with each other every day come June.. that should pass the time even quicker.

    I know it’s hard to be apart and ideally we wouldn’t be….I’ve spent weeks away from Mr. 99, and I missed him, but sometime’s a girl has got to take care of business!

    The longest Fiance and I have been apart is 9 months (deployment).  It sucks but you get over it.  He is gone for a week right now for work, so…

    You will be fine!

    I think you’re overreacting a bit. Fiance and I were in a LDR for years – only seeing each other a couple of times a year! 12 days really isn’t that long. It might suck but it is his friend’s bachelor party. I do hate when I have to travel for work and be away from Fiance for a week or more, but I deal with it and get through.


    If you trust him, why are you anxious about the trip?

    You’re overreacting, but that’s okay.

    Let him enjoy his trip, and I think you’ll find it easier to preoccupy yourself than you think.

    I was super nervous when my husband deployed for the first time… I had just moved 1,200 miles, leaving all of my friends and family in another state. I was in Oklahoma and I don’t know anybody and at the time I didn’t know where anything was. He was home barely a week and a half before he deployed afer I moved in.

    It seems overwhelming because it is so new. It’s only 12 days (Then again the “only 12 days” is something I look forward to after my husband has been gone, so 12 days is nothing to me!) and if you just keep yourself occupied, go out and have fun with friends, it’ll go by faster than you think.

    You guys can still talk, I’m sure he’ll call you once or twice throughout the day, and if not you can call each other to say goodnight and talk about the day.

    Just take a breath. You’ll be fine.
