    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?

    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.
