    I'm going in for a job interview

    and can't decide whether I should ask for Saturday's or Sunday's off based on my mans liberty. He's about to go to MOS school, and I don't know which day would be best to ask off to go see him. Suggestions?

    every night he used to text me 'good night my

    darling' and the night before he left he finally told me that it came from a song, Sleep Well, Darling by Secrets. He sang it to me and I downloaded it and listen to it every night before going to bed💘

    The internet seems to be my new stand-in lover

    for when I feel abandoned and unloved by my real one. Can't talk to anyone about how I feel so I get on the internet to try to distract myself or find strangers to talk to. I feel like crying but no tears will come out. How frustrating is that? Happens a lot lately.

    I'm 31. I'm not 13. I'm an adult.

    Why doesn't my parents allow me to stay overnight with him?! He wants to celebrate my birthday in Natural Bridge, just me and him but my parents doesn't want me to go there with him. I don't know what should I do now. I haven't felt freedom when I live with my parents :(

    I Love My Marine

    Being married to a Marine isn't the easiest thing to do. It can be a pain that is for sure. You never know when he's coming home and then they get deployed and you don't know when they are coming home. But it's worth every moment. I wouldn't trade it for nothing in the world. I...
