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. 5,283 People

    I usually don't check the news,

    but today I decided to check the news about where my boyfriend is and I regret it whole heartedly. I am now extremely worried about if he is safe or not, and of course I checked it on a day that he didn't call me after he promised he would.

    I'm getting so anxious!

    I just want to see him already! Each day feels like I'm moving in quicksand. Distance really allows you to really cherish the little things like just being in the same room together. We only have 4 days together but I'll cherish every single second. 15 more days..

    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...

    Well I am in a relationship with a marine

    and he is really acting different than he used to. I'm not sure if it is because of becoming a marine or if he is just showing more of his true nature. Advice?

    Just an update. I messaged my ex on fb last

    night and to my surprise he actually replied! I asked him how he was doing and he said "I am miserable, how about you?" As much as I love him and hate to see him hurt, now that he realizes that he is miserable without me, maybe he will get back to earth lol. I miss him so much.

    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...

    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...
