Anybody else have a SO that leaves for work and comes back?

My sweetheart leaves Monday through Friday every week. I miss him but I cope and I just was wondering if other people have this.

  • No, Our separations have been few and far between thankfully. One was for four months but most were for 4 days or less.
    On the other hand there were times when he was literally at work for 36 hours came home for 4 and went back again. He is on 24 hour call and the do call. Sometimes he has to leave at 2 in the morning because of a call that can't be resolved.
    I missed him every time. Frankly I miss him when he is gone 9 hours and have talked to him through th day lol.
    Sappy, I know.

    I hope it gets better.

  • It would be hard for me to deal with that. I need adult company in the evenings. But you do what you have to do, I guess.

  • No, but my ex was a flight attendant so he was gone for 2-3 days at a time. And my stepdad did it for 3 years when my brothers were still in high school so they didn't have to move - 5 hour commute on Fri night and Sun night.
