QUESTION: Anyone else missing a significant other off campus? How can you deal with it if you can't meet each other more than approx. 1 time per month? Any help?

  1. Well I broke up with my gf mostly because of this. Sometimes things just don't work out in your favour and you've gotta go with life rather than resist. Maybe I'll meet the actual girl of my dreams, whom I can see more than once a month, now than I'm single and I've recovered.

  2. my boyfriend lives 5 hours away. it works for us because we are both really busy so long distance doesn't phase us as much because we don't have a lot of free time anyway. try to keep yourself busy and do things for yourself in that time that you are missing your s/o. it is important to have communication often maybe you could take a few minutes a few times a week to facetime them or skype or call etc.

  3. my boyfriend lives in the states, and we've been long distance since we got together in january. it's all about finding ways to make it work -- we watch netflix together (pressing go at the same time and then talking about the show over skype chat while we watch it) and talk a lot on skype. we see each other about once a month on average, sometimes more, sometimes less.

    think about why you're in the relationship and whether it's worth it for you right now. consider what you're sacrificing by being in an ldr, and consider what you'd be sacrificing by breaking up with your so. above all: COMMUNICATE. having to do most of our talking over text chat forces me to really think about what i say and how i say it, and i have some social anxiety so i find it much easier to express myself when i can type

    try out different things and find out what makes you feel close to your partner regardless of where they are. play a video game online together, talk a lot, send each other lots of snapchats, send each other letters in the mail, watch tv shows together, etc. talk to your so and find out what makes them feel close to you. it's work, figuring out how to make it work and stuff and learning how to make each other feel loved despite the distance but it's definitely possible

    3. Agree with all of this.

      My boyfriend is in England, but we've been together for almost 2 years. The thing that holds are relationship together is communication.

    1. Nah, some couples make it work during co-op.

  6. I call mine pretty much every night of the week and we trade visits on weekends. I'm not sure how well it would work without the weekends thing though, so good luck?
