Cricket, my boyfriend didn't have the internet for two weeks or more after he arrived in japan so he could only email at work, and it was hard, but it made it SO AMAZING to speak to him in real time on the phone when it happened again. Black mambo that's really rubbish about not hearing from him for over a week, hopefully when you do hear there will be a VERY good reason. I wouldn't text because I am stubborn and afraid of appearing too needy, but my relationship advice isn't always the best to follow!
This is a good thread, it makes me feel a bit better to know there are other people in the same situation as me. Like, a lot better.
I'm in japan at the moment with my boy, I met up with him in beppu the day before his birthday after two weeks of travelling on my own. Before I came I was worried that I would have a bad time travelling and blame it on the boy without being able to help it, which would spoil stuff when we met up, but because my travels were so awesome, seeing him has been even nicer. Looking back, I think it was a good idea to travel first because at the same time as showing my independence and getting some cool stories to tell him, the fact I came to japan also shows him how much I like him
whilst he is at work I am going on day trips-atm I'm on my way to ibusuki to see a volcano and go to some hot springs, and see the kamikaze museum at chihan
