Sorry about the long distance, OP. My SO is 3k miles away and it kills me. I hope it goes by easier for you and that you and your boyfriend are on the same page. To be fair, people process distance differently. My SO and I are perfect for each other, spending the rest of our lives together. But I get way more sad at the distance and saying bye than he does. I just parted from him yesterday, I only see him twice a year. My heart is crushed and he’s a little bummed, but he’s okay. I’m not okay. We just deal with it differently
That doesn't sound right. If he's all "meh, it can't be helped" about your situation, how invested in your relationship is he, really? I suppose, if he's in the military, that might go some way to explaining why he's only bummed, but you're heartbroken, as you'll be more worried about him than he is. However, if you just happen to live that far apart, and are in one of those long-distance internet relationships, then you might want to find out if he has other reasons for travelling so far, stopping in to see you for the duration of his stay in your area. Any chance you could clarify if he's in the military, or not?
..right ok maybe this is why I generally suck at relationships, but what do you want him to do, look at you with glazed over eyes for nine days? That's still more than a week, just have normal interactions, let the man have a nap, this is gonna be exhausting if you keep a track record on his behavior nine days before he even leaves. Go out, have some nice dinners, go through his preparation list, talk about goals you both have while he's away - sounds like a big opportunity anyways, if it takes him that far away.
