    I need help. My guy is in basic right now.

    He wrote me and said that he'll be able to call me next weekend! There's a catch though, it'll be his first phone call since he left and he said "PLEASE don't tell my mom. It would crush her". I don't know what to do. She knows calls will be coming soon and will be expecting one...

    I told my 5 year old sister today

    that my boyfriend, who she loves, was gone for a while (at basic training). First thing she does is ask if I'm ok and if I miss him. She knew how much he meant to me enough that she asked.. That already made me teary eyed because I did not expect that at all, and then she said...

    I found out 20 days before his graduation he

    cheated on me 2 days before he left. I still haven't told him I know and I don't know how without breaking his heart.

    So, my boyfriend has been planning to join the

    Air Force for some time. It's admittedly been his dream and I've been supportive and proud of him from the get-go. There's been a few setbacks, but he's well on his way to getting in and I'm sort of gearing myself for the two months I'll be apart from him. I can't say for sure...

    I hate the idea that they all have to be

    "broken down," so to speak, first in basic training. For me that's the worst part. I feel like it's wrong, even though I know it's what needs to be done. And the communication aspect has me worried too because he has a hard time communicating now let alone with the whole basic...

    It wasn't long but at least I got one. It was so good to hear from him. He graduates on January 17th if he doesn't get recycled. I'm just ready to be in his arms. This is harder than I thought it would be but I can pull through. I can do it if he can❤
