Making a semi-long distance relationship work
Fri, 11-15-2013 - 7:55pm

I'm in a semi-long distance relationship.  We live an hour apart so we are able to see each other a couple times a week.  I have a 13 year old daughter and he has no children.  I totally adore this man, he is kind, generous, loving, affectionate, overall amazing.  The problem?  The distance is so hard.... I live a very simple life, I work and take care of my daughter.  I get with my friends occasionally but not often.  He on the other hand, has no kids, is social and always on the go.  He calls and texts me often and we talk about living together sometime next year.  The problem is I miss him so much when we are not together, it's so hard spending nights alone when we were just together the night before.  Does anyone else have this issue and how do you deal with it?  I tend to get upset sometimes because I miss him and want to be with him.
