i'm going to be in the EXACT same situation as you, though he's not technically my boyfriend yet. we're headed in that direction and april will be our first time meeting since we live in different states. where is he stationed?
You are in for a serious growth spurt. You learn so much about yourself during those type of separations. But pay attention to what you are going through, and don't simply go with the flow.
Please let him know there are a ton of us that respect what he is doing. His seven months will be a bit more challenging than yours.
mine is in arizona, i'm looking for advice on how to handle things ahead of time so i'll be as prepared as possible but that's about all you can do is make the most of the time you have!
