    Sighhhh

    Insecurities suck, even the most confident person can dabble with insecurities here and there. Self esteem and trust is at the top of the list. But with circumstances, like us, military girlfriends with our loved ones shipped out on deployments have more of a difficult time with...

    My boyfriend left for MCT this morning.

    I'm a senior in high school and it's been really hard trying not to cry all day. I'm so proud of him I just wish there was a rewind button so we could redo his 10 days.

    I started talking to my boyfriends best friend.

    He's a marine too and we just clicked. I don't like him obviously but would it be weird to send him a care package? his parents have only sent him one ):

    but we had good time to talk on Facebook. He made me so happy because he told me about his feeling for me. I couldn't stop my smile, I could feel the butterflies in my stomach. But he hasn't said " I love you" to me :( Hopefully someday I can hear 3 magic words from him :)
