When I choose to do so Howard . Some of us retain that option.
I cannot understand why someone would be "heartbroken" because their partner is leaving temporarily!
Seems you have some serious trust issues..........
.......... oh yes, I remember:
Arriving Saturday, eh? good night to familiarise himself with the nightlife!
I'm confused. Has OP moved to HK with hubby and hubby leaving HK right away, or is hubby moving to HK alone for 2 months?
And where did you read about OP being in the US?
I don't know what's going on, but I am away from boyfriend for a year (though I have visited him and he did the same). I think you can get through this. Two months is quite short if you think about how long you still have down the road. We are still 3-4 months apart, and until then, we sure won't get to see each other, other than on the webcam. We have been doing alright for all the time.
But then, I have been away from family for 11 years. I am used to goodbyes. My boyfriend isn't though. It's harder on him than it is on me. I think he would have been thrilled if we were only apart for two months. Good luck to you two, but trust me, time will fly.
Monster, I really sympathise. I felt similar when we left London in 1996 for Tokyo - and that was WITH my husband But you will be surprised how quickly time passes, you'll be so busy before you go then once you get here you'll be caught up again. With Skype you can keep in touch so easily now.
If you do feel lonely when you get here there are a couple of lunch clubs or there's usually someone arranging drinks etc.
Hope the move goes well!
