Awww, I’m sorry to hear you are having a tough night dear πŸ™  *hugs*

I know the feeling of having work and school keep you apart too much – I try to remember that it makes the time you do have together even better. 

Also, I LOVE Bridesmaids!!!  SO funny πŸ™‚

Long distance relationships are tough.  I know you think it’s going to be worse but it was actually better for me when we had things to keep us busy because it kept me from sitting around and missing him constantly.  There is a LDR board with lots of girls going through the same thing, make sure to stop by!

@MissDiamond:You need lots of distractions. Check out some of the many types of advice for keeping busy/distracted on the deployment posts in the military forum. You can do it!

@MissDiamond:When I walk down the aisle, it’ll be the first time I’ve seen Fiance in 5 months.  Believe me, its hard.  I wish I could tell you a magical thing that makes everything better, but there isn’t a magical cure.  You have to keep your own life. You have to keep going to the movies with your friends. 

Oh and texting doesn’t do anything for me either.  Its sooo not real.  We make it top priority to speak to each other on the phone or via skype.  I recommend doing that for a few hours.  And with you guys living 15 minutes apart, there isn’t a way to rearrange any priorities to spend more time together.  I think I’d find a way.

Always focus on the big picture.  Remember 8 months in the grand scheme of life is absolutely nothing.  Realize you’ll need the money to have a good life so some sacrifices have to be made.  It always helps me to tell myself the bigger picture.

I’m going through the same thing right now, except he lives 3.5 hours away. We’ve been long distance since we started dating, although only 1.5 hours away. Then, it was 9 hours. Now it’s 3.5. Next year, we’ll either be living together…or I’ll be far away again πŸ™ (That’s the price my fiance & I pay to continue our education & advance our careers) It’s really hard, but enjoy the time you have together & know you have a community here of women that understand!

@MissDiamond: LDRs are tough.  Very tough.  But think of them as a way to make YOU stronger.  Look at these next 8 months as a time to become stronger, more confident, and more independent person.  You’ll only become a better woman for your man.

Also, try to think about how he’s feeling too.  He hates being away from you just as much.  It’s probably killing him inside knowing you’re having a rough time with it.  But, he needs you to be strong too.  Be his rock, just like he is yours.  Keep going to the movies, find a hobby that can take up your time, learn to cook some new recipies, take a spin class…. anything to distract you that will also help you develop yourself.  You’ll have lots more to talk about with your Fiance that’s fun, engaging, and you’ll grow as a person.

I know how hard it is.  Darling Husband is in the military, and for his whole military career, we’ll be apart at least 6 months out of the year where he’ll be at the bottom of the ocean… and you can’t text the ocean. πŸ˜‰  But, you know we’ve found that while the separations are hard, they make you appreciate each other more.  I hate saying goodbye to him, but I know that it means I can start counting down the days until I see him again.  That first hug, kiss, and seeing him again for the first time keeps me going!
