Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

You should firstly talk to your partner about how you it e feeling. He nyight feel the same. If he doesn’t it’s ok. But talk to him about if is it make a you in feel( not blaming. Then decide if each time he comes home could you have a date night or time together. It’s hard though I’m guilty of being with my partner and worrying about the next time he goes away but try to focus on the now.

This reminds me of me since my boyfriend works faraway so I don't get to see him often but the times that I do see him I'm always excited. We usually plan something to do when I get to see him. :)

What should i do?

My bf works away and I'm not handling it well. He works 10 and 4 but somtimes more and when he comes home it's all his kids 24.7 never us. I have a kid too so together were 5 ppl but it's hard cause I just want to feel special in one moment without kids because I have my kid full time ans can get a sitter he only gets his kids on his little glimpse home. I love our kids together but we never have time to ourselves. I feel selfish and terrible but I don't know what to do. Maybe I am not cut out for this. It's been 2 years of struggle and I feel like I'm loosing myself. It's probably just me. But it's hard

My husband works out of town and I have definitely gotten to know myself better and I'm happy with my own company. We talk everyday and look forward to the weekends. We make sure that we have quality of time even though we don't have quantity.
