For me, this stage usually lasts between a couple minutes to all day (depending on whether it is going to be a couple days or a couple months until I see my significant other). It doesn’t necessarily mean that you are replacing them with another person; it is also common to replace a loved one with a hobby, job, friends, clubs, or horrible reality television (like Toddlers in Tiaras, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, or Judge Judy).
You are just depressed because you know how much you are going to miss them. Not deeply depressed, just a little bit – just enough that people who know me can tell if he’s visiting or not. I have friends in long distance relationships that are depressed for nearly a week every time their significant other visits, then leaves. Everything finally settles on the final step: Acceptance. Replacement means what it sounds like; you replace your significant other with something so that you don’t miss them so much.
They're glad they took the risk to pursue each other, despite the distance.
