    My sailor leaves for bootcamp in 10 weeks.

    We have been together for two years, and have (with a few exceptions) spent every day of those two years together. The reality of the situation is starting to hit me. I'd love someone to talk to that is in my same situation, or a little further along in the process. I don't know...

    My boyfriend of 3 years left June 2nd.

    I have received his box, and he called me last Saturday. I haven't gotten any letters yet. He told he was going to send them the next day (Sunday.) He did send his mom and step dad his graduation info packet. Which did hurt me honestly. He has a pretty crummy relationship with...

    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...

    So, my boyfriend just took his Asvab test

    and got a perfect score. And it's kind of hitting me that he could be leaving me for the navy soon but it all still seems so unreal. I don't come from a military back ground so this is all new for me and i constantly have questions and when I ask my boyfriend them, it always...

    So the countdown before my boy leaves

    for boot camp is less than 3 weeks. I finally got to meet his recruiter today which helped me feel a lot better because he answered a lot of questions that my boy hasn't been able to. I'm nervous about this huge transition in both of our lives but I'm working to stay positive...

    since November 2014. He and I started to share our feelings with one another before he left for boot camp. Ever since then, we've been working on being together. We have our struggles, but other than that, he makes me extremely happy. The upside is he'll be home in August, but...

    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...

    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
