    I can understand if he's gone for a few weeks....

    But whats up with you chickies that have to ring thier bloke about 2 or 3 times a day. My missus does it just to say 'Hi'.
    'Hi, what ya doing?'
    'Working, what you doing?'
    'Oh you know ,just working?'
    'Ok, cool, see ya !'

    WTF !!!.....drives me nuts but if i whinge about it i'm aparently a ungratefull asshole.

    As for the break ups, yeah that aint cool but chicks should be able to move on quicker i reckon....dress in somthing short and tight and there's a bloke in every pub, club, beach, shop, church, hospital, etc.etc who will be willing to go out with ya's. For blokes it aint so easy.

    Hope i dont sound rude but it's just the way it is through a blokes eyes.

    Him getting a prepaid sim card over there is better for both of you - cheaper too! Lots cheaper!! International roaming has to be activated on the phone or it won't work with your normal sim card.

    I had to learn to cope very quickly with missing ex hubby - he was military and went away a lot. The best thing I can suggest is sleep with something that smells of him, focus as best you can on work and pets, and when you miss him let yourself remember things that you've done together, don't beat yourself up for missing him but remember he won't be missing you as much because he has a lot of other things to do. Hoping by this time he's called you

    I find that it doesn't matter if it's been 3 weeks or 3 hours, you still miss them and at the end of the day there's nothing wrong with missing them in any amount - it wouldn't be worth being with them if you didn't to some level!

    Men clearly have no idea what we women go through!! When our partner's go away for long periods of time, it is like our hearts have been yanked out (ok so it's dramatic, but it is our perogative to be dramatic, damn it!!) My boyfriend has stepped out for a few hours, and I will miss him while he is gone and when he is working, I love getting a text lol. Anyhoo to Miss ClareBear, you are a beautiful young lass who has your whole future ahead of you. I know how you must feel and yes it hurts very much. Men can be insensitive, and maybe he will realise how much he misses you after a bit, but hey if he doesn't, bugger him...You are definitely worth someone's time!!

    Haha yeah that's a bit much for me! I really only text my boyfriend during the day, and that's if I need to tell him something! Lol He can go away for a weekend or I can and we really don't speak at all. I think its good for both of us to get time alone though with out me bugging the shit out of him :P (apparently I can talk to much haha). Even when he is off working and he called he never has anything to say on the phone anyway cause all he has done is worked

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Thanks everyone for your responses, I appreciate it!
    He sent me another e-mail saying the phone won't connect or something, so he's going to buy a cheap prepaid simcard over there and see if that works.
    Do any of you guys have any idea what might be going wrong? Area codes? 'International roaming'? etc.? Do any of these things ring a bell?
    when calling international mobile to mobile the numbers are a bit ****y....... so if your number was 0421 XXX XXX, and you bf in thailand wanted to call it from a pre paid thai mobile he would dial +61 421 xxx xxx

    "aw, you have such a cool job, i love cranes"
    "babe, i gotta go, ill talk to ya tongiht"

    Thanks
    I woke up to an email, he said he wont have a chance to get a phone till tomorrow morning. He's making an effort by email though, and thats the main thing(even though half his message was asking me to call the bank and cancel his debit card! I swear he has no idea! haha)
    Your example was perfect, as my number actually starts with 0421, hopefully he knows to drop the 0 and add the 61.

    Clarebear I'm so sorry to hear about your relationship . I went through a seperation about 6 months ago , we'd been together for 13 years and had a son together. I wish I could give you some magic words or a cure to help you through it but I cant . Just try to keep busy , if you need to cry then cry...like have a really good cry ( somehow after a cry I'd feel better for awhile) when you find yourself thinking about him quickly shut it down and throw some other thoughts in there , ie ; think about things you need to do at work,or with the dogs etc . Like I said,theres no real cure and I still miss mine very much at times ( the good times we were together anyway) but it does slowly get easier with time. ((hugs))

    And as for Sean and Rayzor lol!
    If we get the easiest end of the stick why is it that I can still miss parts of our life together but he's fine.In fact he's so fine he got married last weekend.None of us were invited ( or even told about it-thanks facebook) not even his 11 year old son . So I'd say he's doing pretty well .

    edit to add - and I forgot,he is also expecting another child,she's 3 months pregnant,he's doing damn fine

    Thanks Renee, its very frustrating though. Its shows how different males are from females. I send him these lovey dovey 'I miss you so much hope you're having fun', tell him about my day, ask how he's going, and he'll reply talking about things I don't want to hear about like his lost debit card and all the sick and dying dogs and cats! And little insignificant things in his messages are really annoying me like his inability to put 'I' before 'love/miss you' and his refusal to put more then two x's('kisses')! Very petty teenage stuff, I know. But im lonely and dramatic!
    I had a jumper that smelt like him but its starting to wear off already. 12 nights to go!
