    Not only is he away in his schools right now

    but we have also been long distance since our first date. I miss him all the time. We still see each other once or twice a month right now. Before, it was every weekend. I just can't wait until we can actually be in the same city. Unfortunately, that will be at least a year. We...

    Truth Is...

    I can say a lot of different things right now that make me sad. But the truth is. I just miss my boyfriend. Any of you girls who are on the same page as me, don't you just dream with maybe just five minutes with him. That's all I would need to be ok. But I know it can't be that...

    Just got his first phone call only 35 seconds):

    but it was so satisfying just to hear his voice. He said everything is okay he's fine but started off with "I love you I love you I love you" made my heart melt lol I miss him so much already

    This Feelings Sucks.

    The feelings of wanting to tear up because you miss your soldier sucks. You tell yourself to be strong for him and your relationship, still, you just want to tear up. You close our eyes, imagining him right in front of you, smiling, laughing together, holding one another in each...

    The Prayer Of An Army Girlfriend

    As I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to keep. To help me clear my cluttered mind. To help me through these desperate times. To bring my love to me all night. In dreams where everything feels so right. That even if he can’t be here, Make it feel as though he’s...

    I really just don't know what to do.

    My family (parents, two sisters) doesn't want me dating my boyfriend. Don't get me wrong, they like my boyfriend a lot, but when it comes to me dating I find it almost impossible to get them to be supportive. What makes this even worse is that he's at basic for the air force and...

    Sex is not everything.

    But while my army man is away I do miss that special bond you get from sex. I just miss him like crazy and miss that feeling of being intimately connected. Is that normal? He was my first too

    How do I tell him I'm

    so broken without him?... I just want him back I'm tired of being alone I'm tired of wondering if he's ever gunna come home to me tired of it all. It's not fair to finally get the love you've always wanted and it's gone... Just like that he's gone.

    carnations on it. Each carnation was a different color, one was red, one was blue and yes the last was white. I asked for the ribbon to match my the color of my flowers and asked the florist to pin the corsage on me. She did and I wore proudly to church, while practicing my...

    Missing Him..

    Some days are worse then others with my boyfriend in Afghanistan but today is definitely one of the harder days.. I miss him so much. I'd give anything just to be in his arms again and to feel his skin on mine. I'm so ready for all of this to be over, for him to be home. Wish...

    I miss him so much. I’m trying to study

    for finals but all I can think about is not being with him anymore. I just want to read everyone’s story and cuddle up in bed and cry. It helps to know that there are other people who feel the same way. It’s like you don’t want your man to think you are needy or that you...

    Two weeks until he's home now

    but all I can think is that he's got to go back to afghan until July. I'm not coping well at the moment at all. The fact I can't tell him I'm not coping because I don't want him to worry is making it even worse. I have a boyfriend who I can't talk to because of the situation and...
