Being apart from the one you love in FIFO is similar at times to a long distance relationship.  On the bad days, it can be hard to muster the strength to see things in a positive light and not want to completely throw in the towel.

It’s important to acknowledge those feelings of sadness, allow yourself to be upset and have a cry if need be.

I wanted to share some of my favourite long distance relationship quotes, that I feel apply to the FIFO life too.  These help to uplift me in times when I feel alone, or when I’ve lost sight of the bigger picture.  I hope they help you too.

And in case no one has told you today, you’re doing amazing.

FIFO Wife quotes to inspire you in your long distance love and FIFO relationships.

“Distance means so little, when someone means so much.”
“I exist in two places, here, and where you are.”

“Years from now, our past will be a story – a story of long days and lonely nights, hard work and lack of sleep.   We’ll live each day having intimately known the pain of being apart.   We’ll appreciate our time together, knowing how lucky we to have made it through and we’ll find solace in the promise of a future together.”


“Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold.  It is for those willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love.  It is for knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough.”


“Love isn’t finding someone to live with.  It’s finding someone you can’t live without.”


“It’s true- we don’t have it as easy as ordinary couples, but this is not ordinary love.”


“When they work, long distance are the best sort of relationships, I think.  That a person could wait months, cross miles and oceans for a few spectacular moments with the person they love, that’s it, you know,  that’s all that we’re searching for.”

– Beau Taplin


“I like the way you make me feel, even when you’re nowhere near.”
