    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...

    So, we finally got a chance to talk today.

    I asked him if he wants us to be exclusive and he said YES. Then he added he want to take things a bit slow since we are 5/6 months away from actually meeting (for the first time). Any advice on how should I keep our "relationship" grow?

    I have a few things I want to get off my chest.

    First, girls that are still dealing with bootcamp and AIT/tech school or whatever, don't worry about deployments just yet. Enjoy where you are now with you mans stages of he's training. The best time to even think about one is when it's mentioned. Second I have seen a few...

    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.

    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...

    Well, obviously I'm not a girlfriend (being a guy and all that) but I'd just like to say to all of you that as a veteran, I'm proud of you all for your love and commitment to our men in uniform. As one who was once deployed for two tours in a very nasty little war, I salute both...

    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...

    When girls talk about having to go ONE WHOLE

    WEEK without seeing their husband or boyfriend, I'm just like "please shut your mouth." Girls that aren't milsos just have no clue at all.

    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...

    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.
