Three or four weeks when taking care of my Mom. It was awful.

I am going to be way from her for a little while (she is leaving tomorrow) and while talking on the phone to her an hour ago, I cried. This sucks.

It was for about 3–4 days and it was awful because we had no contact during that time.

Two to three months, annualy.
It sucks.

Four months. The relationship of my wife used to be long distance for over a year which was really hard.

Two months. It was rough, but unavoidable.

An occasional month, now and then. I don’t really mind when he goes on trips by himself. Most of the time it’s for business.

One year we rented a condo on the beach for a month, for me, when he went to Europe. I didn’t want to go, and I enjoyed playing with my three grandsons the whole month (they were all under 10 at the time.)

5–6 weeks. It’s ridiculously difficult. I hate not being around him.

Nine months for each of the past two years. May 2012 bring us a permanent residency.

2½ weeks, while she was off to a family reunion. It was lonely.

Almost 9 months while he was deployed to Iraq last year. It was horrible. We chatted when we could on the phone and online, but there were weeks when I wouldn’t hear from him at all. I stopped listening to and watching the news completely during that time so that I wouldn’t hear about things going on over there.

The only good part about it was the reunion when he got home. :)

The longest he’s been away with me being at home is about a week. He regularly goes away for 2–3 days when he’s doing his wargaming tournaments. I don’t mind it, actually. The longest I’ve ever been away and left him alone was 12 days when I went on a trip to the US.

In January my boyfriend is going to Israel for two months, maybe more. Not sure how I’m going to feel. If it was a year ago, I’d be going nuts already. But I think now it’ll be good for us, though I know I’ll miss him more than I can imagine right now when he leaves. And it will be weird because we spend soo much time together. Hmf.

Ironically Nine ½ Weeks.

3 weeks.
My wife really doesn’t understand how fish and company start to smell after 3 days. She will stay for weeks if she isn’t forced to come home.

cookieman's avatar

About a week, three-four times a year. My wife goes away for work.

I miss her and am not fond of it, but I’m reasonably sure she’ll be back.

wundayatta's avatar

Only a week when we had to take separate vacations last year since our kids have different spring breaks. But I was with my son, and it wasn’t too bad.

perspicacious's avatar

Seven weeks. It couldn’t be helped but won’t happen again.

Bellatrix's avatar

A week. I missed him. We tend to organise his and my travelling at times when we can both go and have a long weekend afterwards. We are both so busy in our respective jobs, in 2012 there will probably be more times when we have to be away from each other. I won’t like it one bit.

Two weeks. It was okay. But that was back when we first started dating. If it happened now, I would die without him.
