26 Tweets About Missing Your Partner That Are So Relatable, You’ll Want To Text Bae ASAP
Summer is here, and with it, a two-month long vacay between semesters. Spending the summer away from college is almost always fun, but if you have a partner who's from a different hometown than you, the break might come with distance from your SO until you're back in school. It might be consoling to remember that there are thousands of couples around the world who also face the same long-distance struggle, and reading the following tweets about missing your partner might help you remember you're not alone. This distance is only temporary.
Whether the distance is due to separate summer jobs or internships, family vacations, or a desire to take a break from the relationship while you're apart, long-distance can suck, and has the potential to really eff with your feelings. When you're in love, your body "is releasing adrenaline, dopamine and serotonin, in addition to testosterone and estrogen," Clarissa Silva, behavioral scientist, relationship coach, and creator of the Your Happiness Hypothesis Method previously told Elite Daily. "Dopamine is what creates chivalrous behavior in men and intense attachment for women." When you are away from your partner, "all of these processes are winding down and [can lead to] heartache," she explains.
If you're looking for comfort in the knowledge that you're not alone in missing bae, read on for the best tweets about missing your partner.
1. Distance can cause stress.
"When our partner leaves on a business trip or is away from you, you may feel stressed (especially if it is a newer relationship)," licensed psychologist and founder of Rapport Relationships Jennifer B. Rhodes previously told Elite Daily. "When we feel stressed we are biologically seeking validation that everything is OK from our partner."
2. Crying it out can help.
6. Ah, yes, that time of day.
12. If you say you've never done this, I don't believe you!
13. Different time zones makes long-distance so much harder.
Hello, all other partners please take note of this behavior.
It's totally normal and healthy to miss your partner. Just make sure you're taking care of yourself while they're away, and remember this won't last forever. Also, keep in mind that if you start to hallucinate that the throw pillows next to you are actually your partner, it might be time for a nice, long walk outside. Some deep breaths won't hurt either. Just saying.
