    My boyfriend is my best friend,

    So my boyfriend has now sent me three letters

    where he is saying he wants to come home and doesn't want to be a Marine anymore. I was hoping in this last letter he would feel better since his actual training had started. I've heard from many parents and girlfriends that their recruits are actually having fun at Parris...

    I did better than I thought I would. I'm happy and then I'm sad again.

    I ended up receiving a phone call from him which made me so happy I started crying, but the service was absolutely terrible so all I heard was him say "it's me!" And before I knew it the 36 seconds was over, he texted me from the number afterwards saying how I didn't even sound...

    He called today and I literally felt like my

    heart was going to jump out of my chest. I have really missed his voice. I had all these fears that he would question our relationship while being apart, but he made them all disappear. Just 40 more days stand in the way of being in the arms of the love of my life.

    What Really Grinds My Gears

    Ladies, Just because your man is away doesnt mean that you exactly have to be super girl, Do not lie to him about your feelings. Don't supress things that bother you until he comes home. And dont be overly worried about stressing him out. BREATHE! It is ok to show some emotion...
