Today: LDR

6 Dec

LDR is short for ‘Long Distance Relationship’

If you are in one you know how frustrating, sad, happy, painful, loving and challenging the whole situation is, I certainly do.

I have come up with a few things to help myself survive it though. It’s only a short time we are going to be apart, so i kow it will be worth it 🙂

  1. Talk everyday. Even if it’s just for 5 mins. Even hearing their voice can put a spring in your step.
  2. Be flexible. If you have a day off and it’s acheivable, go see them. I spent less than 24 hours with my Charlie last weekend and it has set me up for the next couple of weeks.
  3. Get Skype. Seeing is believing.
  4. Take it in turns hanging up……
  5. If you think of them during the day, tell them about it.
  6. Be sad. You’re allowed to miss them.

I’m doing it. I’m having a miserable day today. Missing calls and messages. My skype time tonight will make me smile, even if this call centre job has made all my face muscles hurt.

Ever wanted to just be a better Fiancee? I don’t know what I can do anymore 😦 I can only be around when i’m not working,  I’m trying to save and get out of debt so that we can move into a place to live. I visit when I can, we talk everyday….

I want to be able to do more. This feels like nobodies fault but mine.
