    My sailor. My heart. There is no difference.

    "It's not for me or for you, it's or us." I love him, since day one I knew he was mine. Hooyah! Go Navy!!!

    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.

    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 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...

    when to see American Sniper with your sailors? I wanna see it but my sailor refuses to take me because he doesn't want to put bad thoughts in my head. I think he wants to keep from seeing what he'll be doing in during his time in the military but it's really nothing new to me...

    It's easy to walk away

    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

    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.
