    I am kind of new to this,

    but my boyfriend just left for Basic Training and I'm a complete mess. I feel like I've been beaten almost. We started dating seven months ago, but we've been pretty good friends for a minute. I read all of these stories looking for a positive outlook on all of this. I pray...

    So he has just left again

    after spending the most amazing weekend at home with me. Now I have an 8 week wait until I get to see him again. I'm finding it really hard having nobody to talk to who understands what I'm going through, everyone just tells me to pull myself together and stay strong for him but...

    Hi. I'm new to this and I'm just looking

    for a group who understands. My boyfriend is completing his BCT at Fort Jackson and boy has it shown how much we care for one another. We've held off on really planing our future because we want to make sure we both fulfill our dreams. He has expressed before he left how...

    Sometimes the military sucks.

    But you get out of it what you put into it. If your going to be one of those people who just complains that your soldier is gone or cant be with and just hate on the military your going to have a horrible time and it will reflect not only on you but you your boyfriend. Be...

    Back in California...

    ... These 2 days went by too fast. I'm very proud of my soldier! These 3 months have been hell from waiting to get an address, to getting an address, to replying back to his letter and waiting for him to write back, to waiting for calls. It was a very stressful journey but you...

    So he left reception Monday morning

    so of course I haven't talked to him and based off what I've been reading I'm probably not gonna hear from him for about 2-3 weeks. You would think I would be crying and sad, but I'm actually okay. I feel fine. Keeping myself busy, I started working out again and picking up...

    I often read and reread the letters he sent me

    while at Boot Camp just because it is something personal and intimate. I catch myself smiling and laughing once in a while because i can hear his voice as my eyes go over the words. Not saying that phone calls and texts aren't but letters make it so much more romantic, and I...

    My boyfriend and I got through boot camp!

    He came home for his Christmas leave and is now back at AIT. Everything is falling into place and it's so nice to be able to talk to him on the phone. Boot camp is the hard part. Not having the constant communication was hard but it made us stronger in the end. I can't wait to...

    My man is in Afghanistan now

    and won't be back until October. Some call it crazy, but I call it love. There are good days and bad days. Even good minutes and bad minutes. I think it's shameful when girls pretend they love a military man when all they do is complain and cheat. Be supportive and faithful! He...

    Had an amazing day! His family is

    so nice. Both our families live in Indiana. They drove me to Oklahoma to see my bf with them! The whopping 15 hour car drive was sooo worth it. He's so perfect! That reuniting hug though. He hugged me so tight(: His whole family cried, I cried, my soldier cried. He looked so...
