    Basically in the title. I'm going to work in America for an extended period of time and I will be having amazing experience as a camp leader and then travel after. My girlfriend will be back in UK working over summer and understandable is upset about the whole thing so what ways can I comfort her. I am trying to be understanding and trying to not talk about it since I don't want our last couple of months before I leave to be thinking about that making her sad. Any suggestions welcomed.

    Thanks.

    Just tell her you love her and will be thinking of her all the time.
    if you show her how much you love her, she'll find it easier

    Yea 9 weeks really isnt that long. Encourage her to plan stuff to do, out with friends, a holiday, a new hobby or something to keep her mind busy.

    And send her little gifts while you're out there, send postcards and skype so she knows you havent forgotten her

    It's just over 2 months! It's not that long!
    She will miss you but she'll live.
