    (I turned 18 in July

    and my boyfriend will be turning 18 in October.) I wouldn't necessarily say I'm a marines girlfriend just yet because he's still in boot camp... But I'm just really concerned that maybe the person I fell in love with will be "gone" when he comes back. I'm worried his personality...

    Ever wake up with a dream

    so real, it's like you can still smell him, still feel his touch lingering on you, only to look next you and find an empty bed, and you close your eyes, wishing you could go back to that dream, because it breaks your heart looking at the empty side of his bed, and now that you...

    My Marine and I met over a year ago

    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...

    Is it a bad idea to send him a daily email.
