My Fiance went out of town today while I was at work. We’re meeting for Mem. Day weekend in his hometown for our parents to meet, and he’s going up a couple days early to get some things ready. So I’m flying up on Friday night and meeting him there.
Anyway, I know it sounds bad, but I was kind of looking forward to 2 days alone. To be honest, I enjoy being alone and was looking forward to having today and tomorrow to just do whatever *I* want, on my time, by myself…go get my pedi, go shopping if I feel like it, watch something girly…
But as I was leaving work today, and realized that Fiance was on the road, I felt sad. I “miss him,” and he isn’t even technically absent from my daily life yet!–meaning, I would’ve come home to an empty apartment anyway until he’s done at work…but somehow just knowing he’s not going to come home tonight, and I’m not going to see him till Friday night, is just a weird void. And I wasn’t expecting to “feel” this void.
It’s not like we’ve never been apart–the first 10 months of our relationship were long distance, and I’ve traveled to visit my family without him, etc. I don’t know what makes this time different, but it just reminds me how comfortable and sweet it is to have him in my life, and even when I think I want to be alone, when it comes down to it, I’d rather be with him!

That is really cute! It is funny how much you miss them when they are gone. But only a couple days, not even, and you will be with him again! 🙂

But I hate to say it…I slept better than I ever do when he’s in the bed with me.

My husband travels for work and normally I enjoy when he’s gone here and there, but this last time was actually kind of hard, and I felt very lonely! But I’ll agree I slept a little more soundly having the bed to myself and no one else’s alarms ringing.. So i can understand how you feel!

I had a similar experience last weekend! He left on Saturday morning for his bachelor party in Atlantic City, and I hung out around the house to clean and then went out with my mom for a while. I had fun when I was out… and usually I am a girl who LOVES alone-time. It’s the only time I truly control the remote 🙂 Plus I love some private peace and quiet. But I felt a little bit lonely without him, and as cheesy as this sounds, I realized how much his presence gives life to our home.
Ick, that’s so cheeseball!
But, like you girls, I slept awesome! We have two pit bulls who sleep in bed with us, so our queen bed feels kind of small when all four of us are there. Three is just right!

Oh. That cute how you miss him. I myself can relate. SO is will be out of the country next week for work and I miss him already. Sigh.

My SO and I won’t live together until we are married, but we’re together all the time because we have a lot of the same friends and we climb together a lot. So the days/nights that we’re not together, I feel cheesy because I feel lonely too. lol

i have that too. i used to live alone and loved it, i thought i’d never even want a husband as a roommate b/c i loved it so much. but then when i moved in with my husband (then fi) i loved it even more. when he’s gone i find myself doing silly things that i wouldn’t normally do alone b/c it’s my routine, like shutting our bedroom door at night b/c he doesn’t like the sound of the air conditioning, even though i don’t even notice it. last weekend our dog was at his grandparents and my hubby was gone so that was even worse, i was soooo lonely!

Awh, that’s sweet! I like my alone time but it’s when I go to get a pedi or go shopping or something but know he’ll still be home when I get there and especially at night. A few weekends ago my Fiance left on a Friday evening to go turkey hunting and didn’t return until Sunday evening. I wanted him to go, because I knew he really was excited and he also hadn’t had a chance to go hunting in a year–but on the other hand I didn’t want him to go. It didn’t help that I was getting over a cold, thank goodness it wasn’t a few days prior when I was really sick, so I felt lonely that night. I let my little dog sleep in the bed with me, which he was surprised I’m sure and totally snuggled up to me. Sleeping in our house for the first time alone was a little strange!

This is exactly how I felt this week! I was looking forward to having some alone time because we’re ALWAYS together except when we’re at work, or if he’s golfing with friends, etc. We always vacation together, so this is the first time we’ve been apart for so long. But when my Fiance left, I couldn’t stop crying at night when I was home alone. I didn’t end up doing anything I was looking forward to doing, and instead ate and watched a lot of tv. It’s been 5 days now, and the feeling has passed a bit, but I’m looking forward to seeing him on Sunday. It just reminds us how much we do love our FI’s and don’t want to be without them 🙂

Ok, let me throw this question out there then…
Does a quick chat on the phone with them make it all better? Because it didn’t help me just now…
I know he’s busy with 1000 things–cleaning things out, setting up, placing orders, cooking, etc. for this party on Saturday. So I’m being understanding about the fact that he didn’t call or text at all today. But after I got out of work I called him, and didn’t really feel much “relief.” He was preoccuppied but asked how my day was, I told him how (as usual) freakin’ exhausted I am, he told me his parents are getting on his nerves (as usual), and he has so much on his mind in terms of getting things ready. So it was a quick small-talk chat, I said “I wanted to hear your voice,” he said, “Yeah, i’ve been busy,” then told me he had to get back to things and he’d call me later tonight, and we hung up. The phone just isn’t the same.
The phone just doesn’t provide the same kind of connection that I needed today.

I do the same thing. We only see each other on weekends, because we live an hour apart. Once in awhile we’ll meet during the week but with both of us having jobs and homes, it’s hard to jugglie it all. Hence, the recent “Moving In together” conversations. I do the same thing though, if I’m not going to see him on a weekend or even one of the weekend nights I get all excited about doing what I want, just like you. Then, when it gets to be Thursday….I’m all upset about it.
I won’t see him one weekend in June, the 18th I think, so we’ll see if I can “control” myself.
Glad it’s a long weekend this weekend – I’ll get 4 nights with him instead of 2!! Yay!
