i had this with my ex boyfriend the 2 summers we were together, it was rubbish! i think just the same as everyone else has said, while you're away write to him, perhaps have a set time each day when you text or talk on the phone/net (if not too expensive!). then the rest of the time make sure you enjoy yourself, if it bothers you not being able to contact him all day just think of all the exciting things you've done which you can tell him about when you next speak to him! after all it's hardly gonna sound exciting if you say "well i went on this trek and err..was texting you..".
when you come back and he's away that's more difficult. definitely have a countdown thing, plan lots of stuff for his return, get him to write to you/have the same daily chat arrangement. most importantly: keep busy! arrange a different thing for each day with friends or whoever, if you still realllly miss him devote your energies into something creative - whatever your thing is - paint him a picture, write him a song, make him a cd, anything!! it really helps me to have some little project going throughout the time we're apart.
good luck anyway, have fun!

I'm going away to uni in a few months i don't know how i'm gonna cope without seeing me boyfriend every couple of days, but he'll still call me everynight like he already does. Thats not seeing him for the best part of 4 years, and if one more person tells me that absence makes the heart grow fonder i will wring their neck.

The trusting thing is definitely key - otherwise you do go a wee bit mad......

My bf has gone away for a month with no chance of contacting him as he is trekking up Mount Kilimanjaro and then helping some orphaned kids. I'm writing him a diary sort of thing in a book we have, just so that when he gets back, he doesn't feel pushed out of my life and he can see what i've been up to. I thought I would miss him really badly as I see him most days, even if only for 20 mins or so. I miss talking to him and hugs! But that will still be there when he comes back and I think that's a good thing to remember, and if you trust someone it doesn't seem so bad.

I am the infamous "10 days girl" my bf went away and cheated on me. I don't think i'll miss anyone who goes away quite as much again.
