    Okay so my man comes home in 12 days.

    And we aren't really together, but I waited for him this summer. I understand he is going to be different. I know that. I'm completely aware. But will his feelings be any different towards me. I mean, I've had 3 months to prepare so I'm ready if he does change. And I know...

    I have been with my boyfriend going on two years

    and I love him with all my heart. When I was younger I always said I would never get into a relationship with a military girl/guy. I've seen friends and how much they go through with their husbands being away and how much they hurt, I didn't want to go through that. I even didn...

    So my flight is booked.

    I have a hotel. I'm so ready to freaking leave and see him. Is it possible to sleep for 20 days...? I mean all the beauty sleep you can get, right?

    Missing Him :/

    My boyfriend, whom I have been with

    for a year, recently left to boot camp to become a Marine. It's only been a week, but it's so difficult for me to be without him. I went from seeing him and talking to him everyday to not having any contact with him at all. I've written a letter everyday since he has been gone...

    So tonight I tired going out with some of my

    friends to get my mind off missing my boyfriend but just seeing them with guys or with their boyfriends honestly was the worst. All I've been doing is thinking about how much I wished I could just simply talk to my boyfriend. I miss him so much and it's only been 4 days :(

    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...
