    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 been so patient with him but I feel like I'm the only one putting efforts in this relationship.

    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...

    Does anyone still have any suggestions

    for problems sleeping? We have had 2 good days no episodes actually he's being extra sweet and comforting. But, last night he just couldn't sleep and kept waking me up and it sucked having to work today with lack of sleep. Any suggestions are appreciated especially after hearing...

    for a little over two years now and he is currently stationed in Korea. We just fought about the idea of him going to a stupid rave "Ultra" in Korea and I told him no and I don't like the idea of him going. Especially with me not around. All they do at raves is do drugs get...

    Nite Babe

    I wake up every morning and check my phone looking for a text message or hoping I didn't miss a random call. There's normally nothing. I go through my day working in a daycare practically on my own with nine screaming kids but I try to stay positive about it. The whole day I keep...

    Found This Online! It Is So True! (you Know You're A Military Gf When...)

    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...

    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.

    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.

    So I realized why when he goes out

    or does anything it bothers me. It's not the fact that I'm jealous and insecure. But I HATE that we live separate lives. I hate that our lives don't come together everyday like normal couples. I hate knowing that it's not going to be like that soon. And I hate that he can do it...

    Dear girls who can drive five minutes to their

    significant other and not spend over 500 dollars on a fight to maybe see him for a Few hours on the weekend: Understand how truly blessed you are. Sincerely all military girlfriends, fiancé's and wives who are not anywhere close to who their hearts desire.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    We both went out with our friends tonight

    and ended up calling each other after, even though we're both too tired to hardly talk. We were sharing stories and at some points, laughing so hard we were near tears. All of a sudden his voice got all slurry and slow, that's when I know he's about to fall asleep. I told him to...

    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.
