    Long-distance relationships

    I'm in a little bit of a funk, missing Kyle. He's in training to become a military officer and lives in an army camp. Phone calls are very limited. We see each other on weekends, unless he has duty or some form of training. He'll be done with the course in Nov/Dec... a couple of months after I leave the country for college.. Basically, I'll see him twelve more times before I leave. After which I'll see him maybe once every two years.

    We're not on the rocks or anything. We're not in trouble. I just miss him. Being apart hurts.

    I know a lot of you live some distance away from your SOs or have other reasons for limited contact... I just want to know, how do you do it? I know the early stages are the toughest and I'll get used to it. I'd just rather the "getting used to it" part sped up a little.

    That sucks, Melissa! For me, I never got used to it...But doing little things like mailing care packages or sending little emails coupled with the times you do get to spend together made it a little better. (((Hugs))) to you...I know how much being apart sucks, it'll get better tho!

    For us it worked because we new that after being a part, we would finally end up in the same place for a while.

    I don't want to be a bummer, but believe me - your life will really change when you go to college.

    Thanks. I feel a lot better now, it's not as if I'm constantly down about it. Just now and then the distance will hit me.

    Yeah, I guess. It just depends how long "awhile" is.

    Oh yeah, I know... and we might not even try to make the long-distance thing work while I'm in college. We're talking about it, but we don't want to taper out while I'm there.

    Re: Long-distance relationships

    We've been in the same place for 8 months now, it's the most we've spent together in the last three years although I already spent two months of those 8 alone on vacation

    The best I guess, is to be honest with each other, there's no miracle solution but if it's meant to be, it will be and if it isn't well you can still remain friend. I know people for whom it worked and others for whom it did not. I would take at day at the time and see how it goes if this relationship is important to you.

    It just takes work and dedication. I don't really think it gets easier, but you do get better at finding things to fill your time so it doesn't seem so empty.

    I did LD for nearly two years! It was awful, but worth it--we are getting married in June.

    Re: Long-distance relationships

    That's wonderful, to both of you. It feels strange to have someone suddenly whisked out of your life like that... I used to see him almost every day and now I see him once a week if we're lucky. I'm sure it gets easier. I just wish it would get easier faster.
