    Ok well, my girlfriend is going away on vacation today for a month. Funny thing is, I only got back last week from my vacation that lasted a month and a half! So it's a bit tough on each other because we miss each other so much. What I found interesting is that she would want to have things to remind her of me like "connection" objects or something that smelled of me. On the other hand, I'd just rather try and not be reminded of her too much because missing too much can start to have it's effects!

    What are your guys' opinions with your hubby or someone you lost?

    Well she's only going on holiday, you haven't lost in the sense that she has passed on; Your last sentence seemed to imply you were talking about death out of the blue, sorry if I misunderstood here.
    I personally like having an object or item of my girlfriend, I've had an item that belonged to a girlfriend of mine and I worn it around my wrist 24/7. The idea of her always "being there" was nice, of course it can make you miss her more I suppose, but I'd rather think of my girlfriend in the sense that she makes me happier than most people possibly can and the times we have together. In your case you can also look forward to many more times with her in the future when she gets back.

    When my boyfriend goes away from a few days I like to be reminded of him, I take his little nemo toy (a present from me anyway, inside joke) untill he comes back. But I think he prefers just to forget about me when we're apart, lol

    I thought that it was gonna be a death thing as well!

    I do, I like to smell his shaving cream and sleep on his pillow instead of mine. It would be kinda difficult not to have that connection, as we live together, but hey!

    My love is away on holiday right now and I miss him like crazy! Of course I want to be reminded of him... I added his picture to my desktop background and look at his picture in my wallet a couple times a day.

    My Girlfriend and I bought each other a tatty ted bear holding a heart saying 'love you loads' that I always keep with when I go away. It sounds soppy I suppose but having the bear always helps me remember her, which I like
