I Am a Navy Girlfriend

    I keep telling myself to be strong

    because I need to for myself and for him as well. But I can't help but just cry when I think about how difficult it is to wake every morning hoping that I'll get to talk to him. It sucks so bad. And not knowing how he is makes it even worse.

    Found out my sailor won't be coming home

    when we thought... It's all up in the air right now.. It sick because we had a plan, but I guess I need to get used to the Navy messing with those. Ugh, why does Pensacola, FL have to be so far from California? I miss my Michael?

    does anyone ever feel like they have a really,

    really ****** day but that they don't want to tell their sailor? because you feel like it's not as bad, not as important as the grueling hard training they did that day? And you don't want to make it worse, to waste the couple hours you have to talk to them on something unhappy...

    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

    hi guys I am new on here.

    I am 23. I just moved to San Diego from Florida about a month ago to move in with my sailor. My birthday is in 2 days and he is out at sea for at least a week:( which I know seems like a short amount of time but they are preparing for their 9 month deployment. I really miss 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...

    Three days ago he called me in the middle of

    the night to tell me how much he loves me. Yesterday was his birthday. Today he broke up with me. He said that feelings for someone from the past have resurfaced and he can't be in a relationship while he's "take care of it". I cannot believe this. I honestly thought he was the...

    Navy Girlfriends Prayer

    I joined this site because I was hoping to

    connect with girls who have Navy girlfriends coz it's just so hard for my friends to understand how I feel every time he leaves. He's going on a 6-8 months deployment in March, but he just left today to do some sort of pre-deployment thing which means I won't be able to talk him...
