    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...

    I've gone through a lot this week.

    Along with some really big life changes. I decided yesterday it was time to just be happy. I'm happy because my man has decided to support me in everything. I'm happy because I found a man who loves me unconditionally. I'm happy because I have him and I don't need anyone else...

    I know I'm still young

    Today's the day. The day he finally comes home.

    The one that I've waited for for 6 months. After today I'll leave with him. Nervous but excited :)

    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.

    For all the girls worried about their men

    changing during bootcamp, they don't! Mine didn't, he was the same goofy loving man he was before he left. If anything he's more sentimental and caring.

    I love his mom. I have a lot of respect

    for her... but I hate when I feel compared to her. Sometimes it feels like she's trying to compete with me. It's not a competition! My boyfriend is her baby! I know that! I can't ever take that away from her and I won't try. I'm his girlfriend, I love him too but I'm not trying...

    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...

    Has anyone ever visited Lackland Air base in

    Texas? That's where my boyfriend is at for tech school. I'm going to go visit him in two weeks and I'm trying to plan things to do that weekend and I have no idea what's around there. If anyone has any suggestions they will be greatly appreciated! :)

    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.

    Two nights ago he definitely opened my eyes.

    I knew he was going out with friends from class, but I didn't think he'd be out late. I got upset when I found out he had other plans. All I wanted to do was skype with him. I hardly get to talk to him during the week, so when the weekend comes I'm excited because I know I'll...

    In a military relationship,

    getting married or engaged at a young age is normal. Because to us we probably don't have forever, but we have right now. So we take it, and appreciate it. That's why we decided to grow up faster and be the spouse of someone in the military. We chose to put things aside for our...
