I'd like advice on how to cope and success stories to keep me in a positive mind frame.
Thanks everyone! X
6/7 months is a very well defined and short time in a LDR. You know when things will be back to normal. Not many couples have this luxury while in a LDR.
First of all, try to be creative with the way you keep in touch with him. If an eight-hour time difference keeps you apart because of your life schedules, then you need alternative plans. I use a safe personal online storage service to upload stuff (pictures, videos/movies, virtual presents, calendars, etc)
Recently we are also using a safe private diary (penzu), where we can type entries which work as updates or just love notes for each other. It creates memories, unlike e-mails that are then hard to save and archive over time.
Both services are free (you only pay if you need more than it's offered for free).
You will cherish his love message when you get up in the morning and that will be with you for the day. When you have time, you can write your own message and so forth. You can use this system to arrange time together on the phone, like a date, etc.
P.S. We had also tried the avocado messenger, though we used it very sparingly.
