Hi Ben and thanks for posting here.
As you know every relationship is unique and there's no way to predict what will transpire. Your relationship is at a relatively young age for a one-year separation, and I hope that you've arranged at least one or two holidays during that year when you can be together. Ideally the dates for seeing each other would have been established before he left, creating a sense of a 'horizon' you can both look forward to. No doubt you are in regular communication with each other and it is important that you both be really honest about your feelings. I hope you have a good network of friends to support you while he's away. Please keep us posted on how you're doing.
