Limited Time and Weekends

The new guy I am dating (Barney) works away Monday –Friday and then come the weekend he has his son, so as you can imagine that doesn’t leave a whole lot of time to see each other, especially  when you figure in me working 4 on 4 off meaning for about 4 weeks I don’t have a weekend at all.  You would think this would bother me, but it doesn’t.  

The only thing that bothers me is the lack of commutation on the weekends. We can go all weekend without even a single text and as much as I hate to admit it, that saddens me.  If I do say so myself, I’m a fairly low maintenance girlfriend, I don’t need a lot in a relationship to be happy, but I do like the odd text message and I particularly like a good night message.

For me a good night message is special; when I’m snuggled up in bed I tend to miss my partner more and getting that message that that person is thinking about me too is special and always puts me to sleep with a smile on my face.

I’m actually sitting here looking forward to going back to work tomorrow; just so my mind is preoccupied. This is weird for me, I actually find myself missing him throughout the day (not just when I’m lying in bed with nothing better to do) and I find myself smiling like an idiot when we get off the phone or he sends a sweet message. This is all….not me and weird. It’s freaking me out a little if I’m honest.

I suppose I should leave you wonderful people with a question, so I have to ask; what is important to you in a relationship when you don’t get to see each other very often? Let me know in the comment box below and as always stay and play safe.


The Honest Bitch


  1. Just recently C started working in Alberta. 14 days in 7 back. It is fucking horrible. But yeah, I get rather annoyed if I don't get at least a text before he goes to bed. I doesn't have to be much, but just something that says he at least is thinking about me.

  2. It kind of just sucks when you can't. That's really what I think. You start expecting the times you get to spend together to be extra special and romantic and bla bla bla but that not what a relationship is about. A relationship is not about romance, it's about that love you share that makes a crappy day end well when you are watching a Netflix show with that special person, but when that person is not there, Netflix is not enough. A text helps, but a hug or a kiss is what works for me.
