    My boyfriend and I have been talking about

    getting married for a while now, and we've finally decided to get engaged. I was kind of afraid that my parents would try to talk me out of it because I'm so young, but luckily they've been supportive. They like my boyfriend and just want to make sure that we understand the...

    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.

    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.

    My Life as a Military Girlfriend

    Anyone else think you're very clear

    but your s.o. is shocked when you reach your breaking point? I felt like I've been shouting and she has felt like I'm silent and things just come out of the blue. How do you overcome this? (I'm shocked that she is surprised when I feel I'm a great communicator.)

    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.

    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 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..
