    Dear Civilian Girl

    "Dear civilian girl, You complain that your boyfriend has worked late all week and have barely seen him. -I look forward to the two weeks a year we spend together. You complain because he doesn't call you enough. -My heart is thankful for the 15 second phone call I got last...

    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.

    Need some serious help ladies.

    .. Recently I've been having some serious medical issues with my heart. I'm okay for now but I'm debating on whether I should tell my boyfriend or not seeing as he's still training. I don't want to distract him but I also don't want to keep him in the dark

    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 got my first ticket today.

    Apparently I have to register every single car that picks me up and drops me off on campus. So stupid. This day can't get any worse.

    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...

    I don't know if I'm allowed to post in this one

    anymore or if it really applies to me... The last day I was at fort sill visiting him he proposed to me ๐Ÿ™ˆ and now we're engaged! My friends and his family had hid it from me all weekend and I had no idea it was going to happen!

    Does anyone know if it's ok to send something

    like this to your boyfriend in boot camp? I know the drill instructors for Marine recruits are very strict and I don't want to send something that will get him in trouble. I just thought this would be a nice thing to pass around the platoon. Any advice?

    So I just found out what a proxy marriage is

    today. We were told that if we could do that after my birthday, I could get a command sponsorship to go to Germany with him. It's exciting planning everything out but also tiring.

    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...

    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...

    My boyfriend is in the navy

    and it's one of the most challenging loving relationships I've ever been in. But I wouldn't change it for anything in the world. I'm willing to give advice or anything else to whoever needs it! I know being a military girlfriend is hard but there is plenty of support

    Days are weird. They donโ€™t always make sense.

    One filled with inconsolable sobbing, followed by the next with unexplainable happiness. It sucks. Itโ€™s hard. Itโ€™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...
