I can't argue with the majority. Apparently it is perfectly acceptable for me to be happy that he is feeling the not-so-pleasant sensation that is missing someone else terribly. You guys said it, and before anyone else read that post (I think), he read it and said the same thing.
I still feel guilty about it though. I know that feeling and I know it sucks, so being happy that he's going through it makes me feel guilty. Although... I have quite a gift (apparently) for laying guilt trips on myself. Maybe it's just me.
