    He would txt me first. Especially since he was underway it only made sense for him to contact me on e he got back. Well he came back to land and a whole month went by ( can't believe I stayed string enough to not get ahold if him) so anywYs it seemed as tho we had broken up...

    It's For The Bold Not The Fearful

    Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It's for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for for a little time with the one they love. It's for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough.

    My Boyfriend left 11/12,

    and he's in DIV 57. I miss him so, much, but I agree that staying busy really helps me stay happy. I'm going to his graduation on 01/09/15 and I couldn't be more excited. I write him all the time, but I cannot wait to kiss his handsome face. I'm here to support others if need be...

    So I'm just going to say it- bootcamp is rough!

    ! He has been gone for about two weeks, and having no contact with him is killing me inside. I write him letters every single night, but I have yet to get a letter from him. I am hoping to get my first letter tomorrow... but I just don't know what to do about feeling this way...

    My boyfriend and I have known

    for at least four years but have only been dating for the past two months. He tried to get me to date him the whole time that we have known each other but at the time I didn't think I wanted more. He is in the Navy and currently stationed out of state in California. I think him...

    I havent seen him for a couple months now,

    and even though I know he's working I keep dreaming about him having another woman/ a second life and I worry that he may be cheating on me. I feel terrible and I even asked him and said he would never, and that he's working 24/7. Sigh. I wish he could come back so I can talk to...

    So tonight I broke down.

    It's only the 2nd day for me and I broke down! Wth! I was doing so well with keeping myself busy, until my father asked who I was texting at the dinner table, and he assumed it was my boyfriend. That was when I lost it. I broke down and went to the bathroom to let it out. My dad...

    He was underway for 8 days.

    He came back to land on Thursday and I still haven't heard from him but he seems to have plenty of time for Facebook. I don't understand. :/ He always says he is soooo busy and that's why he can't text me much but how bust can he be if he has time to be online talking to other...

    Each time he leaves it gets a little bit easier.

    It doesn't bother me as much having him gone. I'm worried that soon I won't care at all and I'll just move on completely. Does anyone else worry about this?

    I think I needed him today more

    than ever. You ever have one of those days where everything seems to be going wrong? They were little things...but without him here to comfort me I lost it. I just want to know how I learn to deal with things without him. He's my other half, I just feel lost.
