    I just had one of the best nights of my life

    yet on my way home I couldn't help but wishing that he was there with me. My heart aches, it's his first weekend away at MCT and I'm terrified he won't get a phone call tomorrow.

    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

    Sighhhh

    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?

    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...
