    Let The Countdown Begin...

    We're down to a little over a month until my boyfriend leaves for basics. I know deep in my heart that this isn't just "some fling." This is the man I want to spend the rest of my life with, and you can say I'm too young to know that, but I know, in the deepest parts of me. I...

    Questions About Basic

    I'm trying to prepare as much as I can...can anyone give me any idea on how much we will communicate during basic, and in what forms? I always read different things, someone who knows and has experienced it would be great. He will be in the military.

    So I've been talking to this guy

    for some months now and I've noticed some sexual tension. He comes home in 5 months and we've known each other for a few years. Should I have sex with him when he comes home since I may not have the chance to make love to him in many months? You're opinions?
