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. 5,732 People

    No longer a military gf.

    But thank everyone who helped me get through boot camp and A school. Every since he's been stationed, he became a totally different person now. And by different I mean cocky, arrogant, and self centered. He's not the same guy who wrote those letters during bootcamp. He acts like...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Dear girls who can drive five minutes to their

    I've been back from Germany about 3wks now

    and in that time we haven't really had a chance to talk. We haven't skyped so I haven't seen his face since then. I work a pretty time consuming job so we only get to talk on my lunch break for an hour and with the time difference that's when he's just getting off of work. That...

    My solider has been in AIT

    for almost a month now. I'm glad that I finally get to talk to him way more but some days it feels like I can barely get his attention for at least 5 min. I'm trying so hard not to get mad at him about it because it's not his fault but it's frustrating not being able to talk to...

    Sometimes, it sucks not having any friends

    when he's gone. The girl I thought was my best friend started changing when she found out my boyfriend is a sailor. Sadly, she's a tag chaser and isn't ashamed of it. She says things like"I will only marry a navy seal and if I can't get one of those, I'll settle for any other...

    It's easy to walk away

    and date a civilian. But instead we wake up to an empty side of the bed, we check our phones every seconds hoping for that 5 minute phone call or three word text, we break down and cry when we miss him, we force that smile because the pride and love for our men is stronger than...

    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.

    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...
