a slight side note idea-
I NEED connection-not necessaraily sexual.
Something I did with my girlfriend (back in the day) when she was away at school, we wrote letters. But-if we were going to be gone for a short time-we would leave little notes with dates on them so that the person at home could open a note on a specified day.
SHORT notes-not long letters.
Just something saying "i love you" or "thinking of you" or "you're so damn sexy" or whatever.
with my kids-I would leave post it notes for them in various places (like lunch boxes or the bathroom mirror).
Maybe it would work better for him-if he could pre-write a note or two and leave them behind when he's going to be away for a bit....
