Life Decisions

So me and my boyfriend have only been dating for 2 months as of today. We met on an online dating website and instantly clicked. I know that we havent been dating long or anything but today he had to make a hard decision he had to decide whether he wanted to go to another country for 3 years and soar through the marine corps or stay where he is stationed and slowly work his way up. He is going to be getting deployed around October to Afghanistan. We would have just then been dating a year. We skype and talk everyday while he is stationed in Jacksonville, NC. I told him that i didnt want to hold him back or anything and that if he wanted to go id wait for him to get back. But he says he doesnt want to leave me behind and his family. I feel by this decision I am kind of holding him back some way.

Girl, I completely understand where you are coming from. My BF, is currently waiting his orders from his monitor. He was due up for a transfer before we had met and had his choices in for his orders, and then after we've been together has currently tried to change his orders to stay back. Right now we are waiting to see if he will be being sent to Okinawa for 2 years vs stay stateside. It is such a stressful time (We've been on holding waiting orders for 3 months now.) Just love and support him, and remind him that no matter where he goes you are there to be by his side.
