    How I Met My Marine

    I am not a writer and I don't have a way with words, but I am a Marine girlfriend who misses her man more than anything.  Writing this is my form of distraction and the way to get our story told.  Little did I know at the time, but I met the love of my life in high school at...

    Everyday I always pray

    for him. I don't need to talk to him everyday, I don't need him to have to say "Love you", "Miss you" everyday. I just want to know that he's safe and everything is good for him there, that makes my day okay. Because I know he thinks of me a lot and loves me though he can't talk...

    Had to say "See you soon" to my Marine today

    as he is heading back to California. Leaving each other gets harder everytime... It's already super hard on me to be away from him and we arent even to the hardest part yet. 😔 Feeling depressed.

    I know "you can't buy Love",

    but does that mean he really wants to keep this relationship going long distance? Nothing is guaranteed I know. In the past 2 months before he left last week from (2 hrs away from me, easy drive) Pendleton to Lejeune in NC, he has mailed to me or given me 6 very pricey gifts...
