I Am a Military Girlfriend

this is a group for military girlfriends, the ones who dont have the rings, and are denided in to groups because of that. 5,513 People

    So I posted a few days ago about being

    completely lost and sick and just scared. Made the decision two days ago to go on a break/break up type thing. I don't know what's happened I honestly feel like I'm going insane. I just woke up one day and questioned our relationship, the distance, the love. I think it's because...

    I come to figure out

    that most men in the military don't know what they want. They're literally all over the place... But that doesn't mean we should leave them hanging , that we should stop supporting and motivating them. Yes, me and my ex aren't together anymore but i started this journey with him...

    I am not a Military Girlfriend; I'm a girl in

    the military. This is a message to all of you military girlfriends. I'm deployed right now, I go days and months without being able to get to a phone, just being in the field. Not able to write or email or anything. When we're deployed it's like time stops, and everyone back...

    My boyfriend leaves for basic training in about

    a month and I'm terrified. We've been together a little over a year & I've assured him that I'd stick with him throughout the whole process & I'm confident that I can, I just didn't know how difficult it would be when the time came & I'm having a really hard time dealing.

    I loved you before the uniform

    and I'll love you after. before the dog tags and combat boots. before the sleepless nights and unwanted tears. We've been through it all. To be where we are today are worth those homecoming kisses because true love conquers all.

    Definitely those 3 + hours Skype dates are the

    best. It's always hard saying goodbye but I love being able to see him and talk to him. Sometimes we plan on eating the same thing or watch the same movie at the same time while on Skype. It's the little things that reassure me of everything. Specially when he's bringing...

    My Life as a Military Girlfriend

    I hold no formal recognition with the powers that be. I am at the bottom of the chain. I hold no Military ID card, I am not a dependent or a parent. The man I love may face unspeakable dangers, and I am at the mercy of those who possess this recognition for news. I understand...

    Every since he went to the military,

    we barely talk. We made it through the basic traing phase which wasn't too bad. Now he's in AIT and can talk to me but we barely talk because he's busy doing something else. I'm afraid we will grow apart or that he will find someone else. We've talked about marriage even say...

    Now that time is getting closer to the day he

    leaves, I'm freaking out! I don't know what to expect or how to feel. I want to be as supportive as I can because I know this is what he wants, but it's hard when I hate the fact he has to leave. I hope hope hope I get the strength to pull it together for him.

    Days are weird. They don’t always make sense.

    One filled with inconsolable sobbing, followed by the next with unexplainable happiness. It sucks. It’s hard. It’s a constant whirlwind of emotions, many which you never knew existed. Every time you think things are about to even out, you wake up in tears; you roll over and...

    I can finally say this!

    !!! After 7 months apart and numerous texts back and forth and 1 Skype date, my man is home!!!!! I should be seeing him this weekend and I can't wait to wrap my arms around him. I can officially say we survived deployment number 2 and we are so much strong because of it.
