I Love My United States Marine

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,424 People

    Just got off the phone with him.

    Kind of surprised he was still awake, but then remembered he has tomorrow off. It's nice to hear his voice before I fall asleep. We've hit this rocky patch lately but he reassured me everything will be ok and it's just something we have to get through. We are both stressed out...

    Only if he knew how much I am falling apart

    without him. I mean the life he gives me and my son is beyond words. But i would rather him in my arms but I know that love is so much more the seeing each other everyday. It's being able to handle time and space. Trust and respect is our strongest link we carry together. He...

    Why does he keep asking me

    if his making enough money for me. I always tell him I don't care about the money I will love him with or without the money. He also keeps saying things like he wants me to leave him I don't understand. But when I ask if that's what he wants he says no but I don't understand why...

    I'm truly in love with my US Marine.

    it's only been a couple days since he left and I can not stop thinking about him. of course as soon as we start dating, he starts this challenging but exciting journey that I'm so excited to be by his side for. Being a military girlfriend is one of the most amazing opportunities...

    I love him more and more.

    I've been so stressed because of finals and work and he has stuck by me. I can't believe it's already December and I will be picking him up from the airport in 28 days! I miss him so much and these past couple days have been hell but it's worth it to see him.
