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. 5,640 People

    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.

    Do you ever feel lonely?

    Not the kind of lonely where you miss your SO, but this strange disconnect from other people who don't understand military life. All I want is to be with my airman and I'm having trouble focusing at work and enjoying it like I have every summer (I work at a outdoor ed summer...

    Soooo idk if any of you know my story

    but I'm going to put it out there. This is my second military relationship. The first lasted about two years and he was a marine. He stopped talking to me two days before he left for bootcamp. Never got a letter the three months he was gone then one day got a text "I'm home" I...

    I miss him so much tonight.

    It's been a while since I've cried but I am tonight. I wish I was in his arms, where I'm able to fall asleep in peace and not wake up through the night. I miss his hugs, being with him, and the butterflies I get when we're driving and he kisses my hand at a stoplight. I wish...

    You know you're in love with a military man

    when..... You make friends with strangers online because they're the only ones who can relate.

    You know you are a Military Girlfriend/Wife when..1. You don't mind a phone call waking you up at 4 a.m.2. You tell people that ask that he's 'only' been gone a month.3. The smallest contact (short email or 2 minute phone call) from your man makes your entire week!4. You cry over...

    I'm having such a difficult day.

    We haven't talked much lately and when we have talked it wasn't very long. It was just small talk. I'm missing him like crazy. Deployment is starting to really get to him and I don't know how to make it better for him. I just miss my happy man who was always smiling and making...

    So how did you all deal with your S/O being

    gone doing boot camp? I know they say it helps to stay busy. I have a job but I'm taking a semester off from school so I know that's going to leave a lot of time on my hands. I just want to hear what helped you girls cope with it and get some ideas :)

    Feeling extremely emotional today.

    We haven't spoken in 3 days. This morning I wrote him a 4 page letter explaining how I felt and am going to put that in a care package with his favorite snacks and after that it's time to let go and just see what happens. Lord give me strength. I loved him so much and trusted...

    Not everyone is fit to be a girlfriend of a

    Military Man, whether he be at boot camp, AIT, deployment, or training. But you must choose to let them go in the beginning or be by their side from the beginning to the end. The truth is no one is ready to take on this life, but for those that stick by them til the end it is...

    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.

    He said it...the D word- DEPLOYMENT.

    He's been telling me for months now that it was coming but it wasn't a definite, just a rumor or a big possibility. He's already wearing his deployment uniform as of July 1st but today was my first time seeing him wearing it in person. He said it's confirmed as of today that he...

    Is it bad that I'm worried he's going to

    or already has met someone else? I don't know why I'm so worried about that, it's totally irrational, he's at BASIC for the love of God. Ugh. I hate being so insecure especially about that :/

    I am a military GIRLFRIEND.

    I know well that I am on the bottom of the chain. However, I committed myself to a military man, knowing exactly what I was getting myself into. It sucks sometimes to rely on immediate family for answers. I am not a dependent and hold a military I.D. card. I'm just the...

    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...

    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.
