    I have gotten so many letters in the mail these

    past 2 weeks. I love being able to respond to his letters and actually hear about his days. He offered to buy my plane ticket to see him graduate, and that honestly felt so good. Just to know that he wants to see me as much as I want to see him. He always draws these quirky...

    My boyfriend is in basic now.

    We planned on getting married once he reached his permanent station, but now I'm reading that's it's better to get married in tech school because the process is faster and I will get stationed with him. I wish I knew this before. I don't know whether I should mention this in a...

    My boyfriend is in his 4th week of basic

    training. Right after he left I got the idea in my head that I should start "shaping up," both as a way to support what he's doing and also give him a beautiful girlfriend to come back to. I've always had self image problems and I thought I'd be more attractive if I lost weight...

    He called today and told me

    that they said he probably won't get 14 days of leave in September the most he will get is 9. Take out 4 days of travel (2here and 2back) That means I only get to see him for 5 days if I'm lucky

    He told me he loved me

    for the first time today, I got so emotional I started crying. It makes me so happy knowing he cares for me just as much as I care for him. I've never felt the way I do about him with anyone else. Now only 4 months until I get to see him again, and I can't wait until that day...

    I can't help but think about

    and see myself getting engaged to this man, marrying him, settling down and having a family someday... Is that weird? Do you think I'm too young to be thinking about this? I love him and I can see a future but sometimes i don't think people approve because I'm so young.

    I reached out to my airman's bestfriend as someone to talk to about him. I expressed my fear that while he's gone, I'm worried he'll change the way he feels about me. All he said was that we can't expect for him to be the same. I know there will be a change in HIM but that didn...
