I’m sorry that this time is hard for you!  I had the same issue when I was engaged (husband was going to school 4 hours away, so we only saw each other SOME weekends)…I thought that our wedding was NEVER gonna come!

I just want to encourage you I guess — this is the last time you will be single, so (as cliche as it sounds) really try to enjoy it.  🙂

I’m not engaged yet (c’mon December!!) but I am in a LDR, and not just an hour and a half away…. and yeah, it sucks. I miss him more than I miss a cool drink during 110 degree heat. December will be a long overdue 2 weeks of bliss, followed by 9ish months of LDR hell, and then YAY! wedding. 

But, LDR’s aren’t so bad. I enjoy my time to myself. I see so many friends who are SO clingy. Seriously, I was shopping with my bestie today and she was constantly texting her bf, who was at their house, because he wanted her home. I was like “can’t she have 2 hours to shop with me?” without his permission? I don’t know how people not in LDR’s live like that. I need my freedom 🙂

@galloway111: My SO and I text off and on all day too. He’s working, I’m doing whatever. And we call every night. 

This friend I was with yesterday, lives with her Boyfriend or Best Friend. THey were talking before we left, and he was texting her about chores, where things are in the cupboards, dogs, etc. Stuff he could have asked her when she was back at home. My SO was bankrolling my shopping spree and he only texted me once, to ask my opinion about something.

@galloway111:Fiance and I are the same way. I’m glued to my phone when we’re LDR, it can be exhausting at times but i feel like we need to in order to stay close. When we’re together during holidays and breaks, we’ll go most of the day without texting/talking like normal people

I feel the same.  We’ve been engaged since Christmas Eve and we’re not getting married until October 2012.  I’m beyond over it.

We’re having a 19 month engagement and I had a couple of times thinking I wish it was wedding time but now 2 weeks out I wish we had a few more months of being engaged! Enjoy the time – it will go fast even though you don’t think it is at the moment. But we were in a LDR before engagement and it seemed time just dragged on without him!

Me and my fiance are in a ldr, and i go to school 4h away from my home which means we live 6h apart when i am home. We got engaged in december 2009, and aren’t getting married until dec 2014, due to school, work etc. so i totally hear you on the long engagement front.

I’ve been engaged since last november (2010) and won’t be getting married until August 4th so I know exactly what you mean! I feel so over being engaged and just want to be married! A few friends who are already married are telling me to enjoy it though, because after the wedding there are definitely some positives..but wedding planning is so much fun and you will definitely miss it once it’s all over!
