I Miss My Boyfriend In The Military

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,011 People

    It's been 3 months, and I have 9 more.

    I hate being without him. I can say, completely confidently, he is the only person who makes me feel worth anything. I go through everyday being told what I'm awful at. He made everything better, and still just hearing from them makes it all worth while. But days like today, it...

    I'm having a hard time.

    Not hearing his voice is killing me & not knowing what's going through his head everyday.. That's where faith comes in right?

    night, roll over, look for him in your bed and then go "Oh, wait.. " Or is that just me?

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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

    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...

    Ranger School

    My boyfriend has been away in ranger training for the past 40 days with 21 days to go. Two months may not seem like a long time but we cannot have any communication outside of letters. I've only received 3 letters. The guys barely have time to eat MREs so I wasn't expecting many...

    Hi, I'm new here so not sure how this all works.

    My bf has been in afghan for 4 months now. He's on a 9 month tour. He's home for RnR in 4 weeks but it's starting to become really hard. I miss him so much that I just don't know what to do. I have been really strong until now but it is starting to get to me.

    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...

    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 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...
