I Am a Navy Girlfriend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,732 People

    I know it's been a whole since

    if shared anything. It's been crazy. My boyfriend stress fractured his femur. He's still in boot camp. Because of his injury, he might be there for another 12 weeks if they don't separate him. It's been hard keeping it together. I'm trying. 9 weeks turned into 5 months.

    Couldn't go to the meet

    and greet... My social anxiety got the better of me again. So instead I'm wearing a face mask in my hotel room watching Cartoon Network

    Sometimes, I Wonder...

    There are times I wake up in tears.I can never remember the nightmare that caused them- bits, pieces, but never enough to piece together what occurred entirely. Then I begin to think, and my mind wanders instantly to him. I remember exactly the way he looked in his uniform, the...

    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

    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...

    I'm 14 hours from seeing my boy.

    Sitting in a hotel room knowing he is literally a mile from me is driving me crazy. This 8 weeks was the fastest 8 weeks of my life. I can't wait to hug and kiss him.

    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...

    We sent him off to A-School today.

    I was wondering if any of you have suggestions

    as to what you found to be the cheapest airline and hotel deals for graduation. My budget is rather slim, but I still have 7 weeks to save and figure it out. I'm just trying to get a head start. Thanks! :)
