    Hello, yesterday my boyfriend left

    for Parris Island. We've been together for a little over 3 years. He decided to join last November and I was very happy for him because I knew he wanted this. But now he has left and I'm usually so strong but I can't focus on anything, nothing at work or on my college finals. I...

    ! When he said " Hey babe", my heart skipped a beat. It was our first call. We laughed a lot during our conversation, although sometimes we were quiet a bit because we didn't know what we talked next...hahaha. Only 5 days left then I can see him again! I think I will be able to...

    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...

    I don't know how you ladies do it,

    how you stay so strong and positive. My boyfriend finishes MCT this week and feel I can barely keep my head above water. The pressure and stress of school along with the pressure and stress to stay strong without my boyfriend here is weighing me down. I am feeling so overwhelmed...

    I'm trying to figure out

    if it's just me and my relationship, or if anyone else out there gets this. So my marine is active duty now. He always has some type of training to do even when it's supposed to be finished. In the past month, he's worked 6am-10pm. What the heck?? Is that normal. He works on the...

    My boyfriend is 4,562 miles away.

    . And even though the distance I still love him so much I've been with him from the start and I'll be with him throughout the experience and after. No matter what obstacles appear we will make it through....I wouldn't have it any other way I'm so proud of him<3

    I cheated on my boyfriend.

    I'm not sure how I should tell him... :( I still love him, and I had no affection towards the guy I cheated with, should I call him and tell him or wait until I visit him?

    My bf just left on deployment (meu) yesterday.

    This is my first time going through this but he has been through 2 before me. I miss him so much already. He's literally my only supporter I have and now I can't even talk to him. Anyone going through a deployment right now or any positive tips to make the days go faster?

    Hi I was wondering how you all coped

    while your s/o's were away at MCT. It's been two days and not hearing his voice or talking to him is killing me. I feel empty and will do anything to make the time pass faster.

    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...

    T-minus 10 days till I see my marine!

    I'm so excited but I'm also kinda scared of how much boot camp has changed him. He also keeps talking about getting married and having kids. I love him but I don't think I'm ready to get married I need to go to college first. Any advice?

    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.
