    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?
