I Am a Navy Girlfriend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,804 People

    My bf just left yesterday

    and it's so hard. I try not to think about it and be strong but often times just find myself crying randomly throughout the day. I feel so alone most of the time. I just try to take it one day at a time and hope that times flies by even if it doesn't.

    One day, he looked at me

    and said, "Baby, I'm sorry for the Navy thing. I hate to put you through this." I looked him in the eyes and said, "I'm sorry for going to medical school to be a cardiologist." He said, "What do you mean? That's been your dream. I can't hate you for that." I said, "and I can...

    Girls hang in there! I know how hard some days

    are; but push through it! I thought it would take forever for the day I get to see my sailor and I thought it would never get easier. And some days are easier than others. but at long as you try and keep busy; and write your sailors as much as you can. it will come faster than...

    Can some one tell me how long it usually takes

    to get the first letter from your sailor at boot camp? It's been 9 days since he left and I know that doesn't seem like long but I'm a wreck and I feel like each day gets harder and harder. I just want to know how he's adjusting and that he's okay

    I finally received letters from my sailor today!

    I can't even put into words how I feel right now. I cried the whole time while reading them and I'm still struggling to keep my composure now! He is so sweet and perfect, I can't believe how lucky I am. I'm beyond relieved to know that he is doing well and adjusting to the...

    We sent him off to A-School today.

    I cried, not because I'm sad, but because this brave man chose me to stay by his side. I'm so proud of him. <3

    It's easy to walk away

    and date a civilian. But instead, we check our phones every second hoping for that five minute phone call or three word text message. We break down and cry when we miss him. We force that smile because the pride and love for our men is stronger than anything else. We cherish...
