I'm talking to someone at the moment, and want some feedback on how others adapt to your lovers busy schedule and emotions?

He's not a professional, but it's almost the same. I can say that because he recently injured himself and went to the doctor and the doctor's words were, "Since you're essentially a professional level athlete, we need to make sure this heals correctly and quickly." There aren't really professional swim teams that go around you know... but he is eyeing the 2016 Olympics so there's that.
Anyway, he's at a top university on their swim team and so he travels the country (or will be once the season starts up) for meets and I'm just sitting in my apartment on the campus of my university and am basically just there for him electronically. :/
Phone calls, texting, and snapchat are what we use to communicate. His fist meet is actually in the state where my school is so I'll be attending that and any others that his parents feel so inclined to invite me along to. They're empty nesters and have the extra funds to travel all around the country following him so if they invite me to come along I'll go but otherwise it's just going to be electronic communication for the most part.
You have to be really supportive. They're really busy so your emotions aren't always a priority. They want them to be, of course, but with how busy their schedules are you can't really expect them to have a ton of time to sit and listen to your little quips about your day.
It's really hard sometimes being in my position, but his goals in life include excelling at this and so it has become a goal in my life to support his goal the best I can. Even if it doesn't feel like I'm doing a good job from being so far away.0
