My husband is in the military. Right now he is stationed closer to home but for the first two years of our marriage he was out to sea over 6 months out of the year. If that isn't long distance I don't know what is!
I'm like Remigirl. BF is military. We were long distance for a year and a half before I moved here to be with him. We've been through one deployment and I'm not looking forward to the next but I know it's out there (no dates yet and that's ok!). I don't enjoy the distance but it certainly stokes the fires when he's away. And this time, I'll know about Eden and will have something to entertain me in the next separation.
Been in one for the past couple of months. We usually spend weekends together and sometimes can do a full week. She has lived about 110 miles away the entire beginning of our relationship. She will be gone for all of May at a distance of about 1,700 miles and we are both dreading it, but cannot change the situation. Once June comes around, we will have 3 months together before she will have to move away 110 miles again.
My SO and I used to be long distance for a very long time, only saw eachother every other month or so for a weekend. It sucked, but it made me sure that I wanted to be with him (I mean, if no one tempts you in that circumstance, you know it's serious!). It sucked though, I am so glad we can live together now.
How many people here have a long distance relationship? Or one that randomly calls for it? (Due to business trips, etc)
My husband and I were 1000 miles apart when we met online. We were online only for 9 months and then he came to visit me for the first time. Over the next 9 months he came to visit me 4 more times and on the 6th time he came to visit he brought me back with him and we got married. When we were apart we were in constant contact through texts, email, calls, and web cam.
My boyfriend and I live in different countries currently. We have to put up with it for a couple years, but we both do it because we know when those years are up we can be together for good. Having a time limit on long distance helps, knowing when you can be with that person for good. And it also helps to talk every day- even if it is just a short "hi" on Facebook!
I used to be in one for a while that I saw them every other week and sometimes every 3 weeks because of school. Currently still in school, we have breaks we don't see each other and they are longer than a week. We stay on campus for the short ones, but for summer we were apart the whole time except a weekend, and right now we will be apart until January 29th so I promised to save a ton of eden points for us. haha
