My partner just left this morning to Washington DC for work, he won't be back until Tuesday night :-( I have been trying to do stuff at home so I won't feel so lonely, I brought my dog to the lake this morning; have been mylotting - it helps me a lot because the computer is pretty much the only entertainment at home so I figured mylotting is a good thing... I just took a shower and will be mylotting the whole night until I feel sleepy... I'm sure I miss him so much, want to see him, it is strange when you live with the partner everyday and now he is not there... I'm glad that my sister promised me she will wake up early tomorrow morning so she can webcam me and talk to me :-) Thank you sister So do you miss your partner when he/she is gone far away? What do you do when he/she is not around? or you feel better to be "free" for a while? What do you think?

not free,it's only not a prison while without my partner for me.i felicitate that you can do lots of things without your partner,but for me i almost can do nothing it's hard for me to meet her because of long distance between our cities.Once i meet her and stay with her,then i don't want to go back anymore.hope i shall leave without her talk about travel,i think if one of us do it,we must be go for together

I think sometimes I will feel uncomfortable when my husband not around, sometimes I do enjoy my freedom of home alone. When my husband not at home I feel my life became simple. I can do everything I want at any time. So in the deep night I maybe still watch TV or just talk with friends in another country. But after three or four days I started to miss him. I found some uncomfortable in my life. Life seems boring and I seem having nothing to do. Luckily my husband never left home over one week so the time really flew before I started to miss him.

I surely miss my husband when he is going out especially traveling out of town that will take him days before coming back. Its very difficult for me to sleep and eating is an effort too.

It is just a lonely feeling. don't worry, time flies very fast and you will be able to meet your partner again. As for me, I will miss my partner when he goes overseas. I will keep thinking of him, counting the day to come, can't wait to see him again. But now we have married for 4 years, things have change. I have 2 kids now. Whenever my hubs is not around, my kids will accompany me. They will keep me busy all the time. And I will not have time to miss my hubs.

I am not living with my BF but we do live in the same city. Right now, his work entails traveling to remote towns for the week and he only gets to come home on Sundays. Sometimes we have conflicts in Schedule because I need to do some stuffs on Sundays. Yeah I miss him the entire week, and I dont feel like doing anything without him. Its hard to get used to having someone beside u always.

I will miss he/she without doubt. One of my friends and I had done a work for several months and two months ago we left each other. At first I felt quite unaccustomed to the change because we would no longer to work together. Two weeks later, she made a phone and told me that she wanted to work for a new program with me. It seems that not only I missed her but also she missed I.

Sometimes i feel "free" , but not for a long time . It's better when your partner is with you . I'm trying to hang out with my friends , do some sport , even read . But if your relations are good and you trust each other complitely i think , there's no need to worry . But still sometimes i feel sad when she leaves.

I think every one who love his/her partner surely gona miss him/her when he/she is not with you. Atleast I miss my partner aot when she is not around as I am totally dependent on her and I cant spend a sec without her. She is so caring and loving that its impossible to stay without her.

I don't really missed my husbad, but kind of missed, but we found each other. This happened before marriage; we were engaged and went to attend the marriage training course conducted by our church. We went out for lunch in a nearby resturant after half day training. I had my husband's purse and was waiting in front of the resturant for him to return from restroom. I saw a textile shop nearby with lots of nice tops presented infront of the shop. I automatically moved to the place thinking that my husband will make a call to me once he comes out of the restroom and we will find each other. But, his mobile was in the purse I was having. He was tensed when he came out and couldn't find me. He just started walking on the street. At the same time I got too much into shopping and forgot about him. After sometime he saw the shop and just came inside to see if I was there. Lucily, he saw me. He was very angry about me leaving him without informing.

Right when I see off my partner, my heart seems to beat differently and I feel very sad and lonely. Things only seem to get right only once she reaches her destination and talks to me. I usually try to keep my self busy so as not to miss her but sometimes time just seems to stop nd you can help but miss your dear one.

Definitely for sure. It will not be easy to be away with my partner since he is part of my routine. I was thinking for him the whole day and asking my self if he's okay? have he eaten yet and etc? To lessen my worries I spend much time gardening, watching movies,visiting my nephew and nieces, going to the mall and playing farm town...

Yes, surely i would be missing my hubby when he went back home and I stayed with my In-laws because of my application for visa. I was waiting for the next thing to do so the Foreign Relations Office advice me to stay behind as my papers need more time to be approved. I can't do anything during that time. I needed to stay for quite some time with my in-laws. I did not know Mylot yet at that time, so what I basically do at home with my mom in law was to watch her how to cook and give her a helping hand on some work at home. It was one month were both away from each other. But usually everyday we go to chat and talk on the phone. By the time he picked me up, I was really happy. It was something so different like we haven't seen each other for years. And I just can't wait to go home again with him and be back in our place, in the city.

Im in that situation a few times a year, when he goes off fishing with the other guys, and im home alone, I have a hard time sleeping when hes gone, so like you i spend most of the night on the computer. During the day it is not that bad because he is usually at work then anyway, but the nights are the worst.

Hello, my b/f and I had to live apart for about 5 months while he was waiting for his job transfer to be approved. The way we kept in touch was by instant messsge and he would call me during his last break.I had a local cell phone number so he didn't have to call long distance.He and I also still do a live online web music broadcast and I started mine at 5 pm and he took over at 6 and he finished at 8 pm and we chatted online during the broadcast.He wanted to meet every night at 10 pm but a few times he didn't make it. I told him it was best if we only kept in contact during the broadcast so I wouldn't become irritated when he was either late or didn't show up after working for an 8 hour shift and adding another 2 for the broadcast.As long as we kept in contact when one of us promised we would it was easier.Only time I wasnt able to keep in contact was when I was on vacation for 3 weeks but I sent text messages with an update whith what I was doing.I know he missed me when I was away and I missed him while we were having to be apart.

Definitely not feeling anything easy at all. I might want to call her every night, or every 12 hours to communicate with her on the phone. Sometimes, I just wish that I can be with her all the time too.
