    My boyfriend of almost 3 years just left

    I want to put my relationship on Facebook

    so my family can see, and so his ex can see he's moved on (she's crazy). Here's his side of this-- he doesn't want to put the relationship on Facebook because ISIS goes after family/friends/SOs etc...and he wants to keep me safe. Is he just incredibly paranoid or am I just being...

    weeks ago and it's extremely hard, waiting for a letter has been the hardest part. I know I can stay strong, I love him so much. But I've been so down without him especially going from talking everyday to not even a phone call is really hard. Does it get any easier?
