    I got my claddaugh ring from the jewelry store

    and I am wearing it proudly. I am going to take a picture of me wearing it on my hand and will send it to him as a surprise. He knows I have it but he will be surprised to have a picture of me wearing it. At least, I hope he will

    missing their military man due to him being deployed, and I'm extremely grateful that mine is still here in the states. We've only been together for a month, but it feels like years, but I've never been able to go and see him on base due to his duties there and me being in...

    My boyfriend of 1 month has been my best friend

    for 4 years. When he left for basic about 8-9 months ago, I didn't realize how I felt about him. He's stationed in Ft. Riley and I'm up here in Kentucky. As hard as I try to be strong, I always tell him I miss him and half the time I feel like I'm annoying him (even though he...

    My boyfriend called me this morning at 5 am,

    I talked to him for about 4 minutes. The first time I've talked to him since he left 2 weeks ago. It's crazy how just the sound of someone's voice can remind you of how in love you are with them. Needless to say I've had a great day.
