    Non military couples just don't

    even know how incredibly lucky they are to get to see their other half everyday. Or every week. Or even every month.

    Acceptance

    I haven't talked to him in over a week. This is the first deployment I've ever had to go through with him. Before I met him, I knew nothing about the military & didn't really care. The last person to be in the military in my family was my grandpa, back in like the 50s. I have...

    Be weary! I've talked to a few girls on here,

    and things just didn't add up. There are some definite fake accounts. So unless you are positive beyond any doubt that the person you're talking to is who they say they are, then give no information about yourself or your SO. Protect yourself, protect the guys and gals in the...

    Gah! This is an all around bad day.

    I haven't had one in awhile. It sucks, all I want is for my sailor to hug me and tell me it will be okay. Probably doesn't help any that I've been looking through Pinterest all morning at Navy Wife quotes. Why is it that bad days make me miss him the most? Come on, December...

    I'm still young. I don't need anyone to tell me

    that. But me and my Sailor have been talking about marriage <3 And no I didn't say we were getting married any time soon so don't go attacking me and telling me I'm too young, making a mistake, etc. You don't know me. Nor my relationship. Nor anything we are going through...

    Hi everyone! I am new to this site

    but reading everyone's post has made me feel a whole lot better. My boyfriend left for bootcamp on the 1st of October and is graduating on November 26th. It's been soo hard not having him here because we've literally spent everyday together for the past 4 years. The day he left...

    Ok so I'm about to drop a load on you guys,

    because I need some advice/insight. This has nothing to do with the military. It's just my relationship. As you know, (or maybe don't know) my sailor is on hold before starting C school, unfortunately. So he's been having a lot of time on his hands (hey... I'm not complaining...

    about girls attacking other girls. If you don't like the way someone simply gives advice or something, then don't read what they have to say! Avoid it! We are big girls here. We can handle ourselves. I'm not really sorry if this seems harsh but I really don't like to see that my...

    How long after receiving his address does he get to call? I'm literally keeping my phone in my hand almost 24/7 hoping it rings and turns out to be him. It's been almost 4 weeks and it's easier with each day but still sucks so much. He graduates Nov 26th so little over a month...

    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...

    It's easy to walk away
