    My boyfriend and I have been dating

    for almost a year and 9 months. Yesterday he left for basic training, and the worst part of all of this is remembering all of our memories and how we can't do any of that anymore. Does it get easier to cope with as time goes on?

    Is it normal to feel like your feelings are not

    as strong for your boyfriend while he's in basic? Today I've just been feeling really distant from him and I hate it. I don't want to lose feelings for him and I think this is just because we haven't got to talk a lot. Has this happened to anyone else?
