    Tomorrows family day

    and I'm feel like complete poo. I couldn't go because of family obligations and college duties, but after receiving a letter from him saying that he'll be 'devastated' makes me so upset. Am I being selfish for picking grades and obligations over him?

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Today my sailor found out he'll probably won't

    be coming home before his first big deployment. He's been distant lately, which I know is because he is busy and is still dealing with the first deployment. Today I sent him a lengthy text, short version, while he's away, he doesn't need to worry about me forgetting him, being...

    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...

    tonight. This whole week he's been causing unwanted stress on himself. He's studying his CDCs and not spending enough time away from them. It's not healthy and he's been extremely unhappy. He doesn't really have a choice though. His supervisors are constantly looking over his...

    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...

    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.

    My boyfriends recruiter gave me his address so that I can write to him but I've heard that isn't always a good idea because they can get moved around? So it's better to wait for the form letter that will give you the actual address. I just really want to send them already. If I...

    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...
