    who has just recently left for MCT. We've been together for almost 2 years now and he's my best friend. My senior prom is in late May or early June and he's not sure if he's going to be able to make it back in time to come. Of course he feels bad and says he will try to make it...

    I have been dating my bf since Mar 2013. He was honest with me from the very beginning that he is a Lt. in the military and that he will be deployed in 2014 to Afghanistan. He didn't want to start a relationship if I was not ready for the roller coaster of events and the unknown...

    your man getting aggravated before he leaves causing stress. I hate seeing him so upset it puts a strain on our time we have together.

    So I got what will probably be my last letter

    from my guy, the good news is that he past his last PT test, the bad news is, he nearly cracked his sternum, he is sore, but he is alright, I guess, I just tend to over worry, so I hope that he is okay, and can still graduate in a week.
