just wondering what do you people do when your really missing your boy/girlfriend.

i'm really missing my bf at the min. i havn't been at school for aweek because i've been really ill again, and i miss him alot. still texting him like 10000 times a day, just not the same as to seeing him in person and having hugs. [Frown]

You get busy, stay on top of all the other things you have other than your bf/gf. Schoolwork, hobbies, friends, whatever you can do that's productive and keeps your mind off it.

The whole "two halves make a whole" adage is flawed in that really, that should never be the case for the sake of sanity. [Smile]

As well, you can find other creative outlets for that "missing you" feeling. Write a poem, make a wonderful care package, do a painting, pen a song, etc.

Too, the gazillion texts might actually be making things worse instead of better, so I'd focus the time you communicate on quality, rather than quantity. In other words, how about one decently-sized phone call a night, and maybe one nice text during the day: those endless texts can sometimes just remind you even more than you can't have better contact. And obsessing on those feelings usually does more harm than help.
