    My boyfriend of one month is going to leave

    for bootcamp soon. I'm struggling with deciding if it's better to start distancing ourselves a little more now, since we spend every day together, or if it's better to soak up every moment until he leaves. Does anyone have advice? I'm already freaking out and he hasn't even left...

    Havent Heard From Him

    My boyfriend is in Miami at MEPS to sign his contract and I havent heard from him all morning. His phone is off, I am so anxious. I have girlfriends whose husband is in the Military, and they all say that the worst part of it all is the waiting. I guess it has started already.
