    I read a post on here today stating

    that today is national military spouse appreciation day. I want to take the time to recognize the girlfriends and maybe boyfriends of our service members. While a spouse has a hard job, a girlfriend's job is just as hard and important. After all, a girlfriend is just a military...

    I've realized that these irrational

    and bipolar emotions are all apart of being a military significant other. One minute you love him & you're happy, the next you're asking yourself what the hell am I doing then he says something that reminds you why you're doing this & why it's all worth it. But a few moments...

    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.

    Got his letter for his Bootcamp graduation &

    his mailing address !! November 7th(; it was me, his sister, brother and best friend there when we got the letter. And only his brother, sister, mother and me were on the guest list. So while I'm super happy he picked me , I feel bad for his bestfriend . Still so proud of him!

    He just told me he's losing feelings.

    I asked him if he's losing feelings for me. He says he doesn't know. Let's just say, I can't breathe right now.

    My Solider deploys Monday

    for 4 months, I'm numb and trying to keep myself just so I don't think about it but it's hard. It's the not knowing that will kill me, the wondering what he's doing and when I will hear from him and if he's okay. The date came around a lot quicker than I thought.

    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.

    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...

    that just because you're with someone in the military it won't "work out" because you're going to cheat. Who says that? Like really?! That really gets me mad.
