    Lately I've been getting angry with people

    that believe that everyone in a military relationship is a "dependa". I would just like to say that although there are some girls out there like that, not everyone deserves the title of being a dependa. I personally am pursuing a college degree with a double major and do not...

    Update : The last couple of days have been

    great with him. He opened up a bit more about how boot camp was and how yes he did change in he's way of thinking. And I know I'll never understand what him and others go through, I'll just listen and support him. I'm planning a little party for him tomorrow since we don't know...

    It's days like yesterday

    that remind me how lucky I am. My baby called me and told me all he's been thinking about is how he can be a better boyfriend to me, how it's all going to be okay, and most of all how much he loves me and needs me. Some people say their men get emotionless or distant because of...

    Hey there everyone. I'm not sure I can relate

    to the few who are away from their loved ones. My marine is in a reserved unit while he recovers from prior injuries, but he will be recruiting in 2017. I know it will be tough, but I am a firm believer in the phrase "time makes the heart grow fonder". While my man is away...

    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...

    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

    anymore. So I have been dating my marine boyfriend for about 4 months now. (Completely new to this) He's in active duty and currently everyone's getting deployed, but he's staying behind due to his knee surgery. He's been really busy lately and I've just been trying my best to...
