    I've been dating a deployed marine for a little while now, and I really like him. I can tell he feels the same way. The problem is we used to talk all the time, and now not so much; not necessarily because he's busy. He doesn't like talking about himself much at all. Whenever I...

    for no reason. He was home for 10 days and it was amazing. Things were probably better than ever and now he's off to his next training so I have no contact for 29 days. This is crazy and hard but dang, I love him. Hoping these days go fast. Hoping everyone else is good. :)

    He hasn't thought about our future.

    When we talk about that, he always say "maybe", "someday" or "later". I know he's still young to think about that but I'm not... I will be 31 soon!!!! And all what I want in my life is HIM ! :(
