    Hi my girlfriend has recently gone away to Australia for a few months. I'm missing her terribly! Anyone any advice how I can get through these tough times missing her like mad?

    I also know that I'm being stupid but im really concerned about her having to fly over the Middle East when she comes home. I can't help but worry about it with all the current conflicts going on!

    You won't miss her if you get busy with your work or study or hobbies. Plus, middle eastern countries don't have those surface to air missiles so you won't need to worry about another mh17.

    Hi Gary. You obviously care about her a lot which is very sweet. You sound like a sensitive soul which is really nice. I'm sure she is lucky to have you. I've been in a LDR for almost a year before and we are still together now, back in the same country. At the time, I was quite young and there is also a 5 year age gap, my boyfriend has always been a lot more independent and resilient than me in general, so although he did miss me a lot too, these things are easier for him to cope with. I think I became quite annoying and a bit of a burden for my boyfriend as I was always getting upset and jealous and I found the distance to be a massive struggle. We got through it though, and in the end it made us stronger! Now I'm a few years older, I would've behaved differently. Just make sure she knows that you're thinking of her and care about her, but give her time and space, let her get on with it and enjoy herself. Don't become resentful, needy or clingy as that could potentially push her away. As others above said, use this time to focus on yourself and your career/friends/family and so on. I'm sure there will be so much to talk about when you next see each other and it will be so exciting for you both. She will be back before you know it!

    I'm sure the flights will be fine. A close friend of mine is cabin crew and flies all over the world all the time. If he was worried about that, he wouldn't fly! So try not to worry too much.
