    Anyone else find nights to be hard?

    I hate when the busyness of the day stops and I'm left with a lonely bed--Looking forward to having my boo back soon (g-d willing).

    Got a call from him today,

    it was the best 28 minutes ever. Talking to him finally made me feel at ease but also made me realize how much I really miss him. This next month couldn't go by any faster. I feel so lost without him. Running into his arms on graduation day will be the best feeling ever and I...

    Girls, please don't give up on your guy.

    It will get easier, I promise. He needs you now more than ever. If you truly love him and believe he is the one for you, it will be worth it in the end. If you haven't heard from him, don't worry. That doesn't mean anything. Just keep hanging in there <3

    all I'm picturing is him with someone else.

    . on top of someone else, inside someone else. kissing someone else. I really hope it's not true. I really hope he didn't cheat on me.. it's all I'm thinking about and there's no way of escaping. I feel soo hopeless and violated..

    The Wonderful World Of The Emotional Rollercoaster

    Anyone who had a loved one in any branch of the military knows this ride all too well, and sadly for us, it isn't a ride we can get off easily. Just when you have one foot out of the rollercoaster car, the ride takes off again. I am (of course) no exception to this wonderfully...

    My boyfriend went to boot camp today.

    He didn't bring photos or an address sheet, and his best friend say he will regret that as soon as he gets there (his friend was in navy boot camp previously). I told my boyfriend I would only send him photos if he asked, but his friend says to do it in my first letter since he...

    Acceptance

    Take it from an old salt. Sailors have the best and most devoted women on earth supporting them. Other services have good women too but the Navy gals do it year in and year out. War or peace, it doesn't matter. The separations don't get any easier but the rewards get better...

    Ever since he left for bootcamp all I can think

    about is how hard it will be to live far away from him when he gets stationed somewhere. He wants me to finish school where I am, but I just want to be with him. Any suggestions? Should I follow him where he goes or should I risk not seeing him as much and stay here?
