Long Distance Relationships: Coping Mechanisms
May 26, 2009 10:08pm CST
I'm currently in a semi-long distance relationship - my bf and I can only spend time on the weekends as those are the only days when we're not working. He lives about 2 hours away from me. During the week - sometimes I go through a bad day and I terribly miss him. One of my coping mechanisms is I wear his shirts to sleep (just one shirt, duh!). What are your coping mechanisms when you miss your significant other?

I save some text messages from my partner and I go through them during those times. I also look at our pictures and sometimes just listen to songs we've "discovered". Sometimes, when I really can't take it anymore, I distract myself by doing something else. Of course, it's not something that can harm our relationship. It's hard to be far away from each other especially when you need the other person because you're going through something.
