Found This Online! It Is So True! (you Know You're A Military Gf When...)

You know you are a Military Girlfriend/Wife when..

1. You don't mind a phone call waking you up at 4 a.m.
2. You tell people that ask that he's 'only' been gone a month.
3. The smallest contact (short email or 2 minute phone call) from your man makes your entire week!
4. You cry over an email that says nothing more than hey- I love you and I miss you.
5. Those recruitment commercials on TV make you cry because you are so proud!
6. You sleep in PT attire, cuddled up in a poncho liner, because it's the closest you can come to being with your military man. (hah)
7. You're sitting at home and you realize that you haven't talked to your boyfriend/hubby (on the phone) in over a month.
8. You become heartbroken just knowing that your boyfriend/hubby tried to call but wasn't able to get through.
9. You know your a military girlfriend/wife when your favorite 'man' to see everyday is the MAILMAN (what a love/hate relationship that is).
10. You stop shaving above the knees. (or shaving at all.. lol)
11. A 30 second phone call after no calls from him for 3 months leaves you full of joy and happiness.
12. "No news is good news" becomes your motto.
13. You could wait forever for your loved one to return home into your arms.
14. You feel yourself growning more and more in love with your military man even while he's so far away.
15. Planning letters/care packages and putting them in the mail is more exciting then going out for a night on the town with the girls.
16. You hold off on seeing certain movies so you can see them with your military man when he comes home.
17. YOU WANT TO ROLL YOUR EYES WHEN YOU HEAR SOMEONE SAY, "I haven't seen my boyfriend/girlfriend or hubby/wife in a week!". (AMEN!!!)
18. You can go from being happy, to sad, to lonely, to angry, to proud, and back to happy in a matter of less than an hour.
19. You sleep with the phone right next to you, just in case.
20. If he's deployed you don't care how your hair looks nor care about wearing make-up, and the people at your work ask about your boyfriend/hubby every day to see if you've heard from him.
21. The sight of any other man in a uniform makes you miss your boyfriend/hubby MORE than it makes you drool.
22. You feel lucky for each second granted to the two of you.
23. You are 3000 miles apart and you dont notice the time difference and talk until 5 am his time 2 am your time on a school night.
24. Phone kisses are just as good as the real ones if not better.
25. You realize you can forgive your boyfriend/hubby for not calling you for a few weeks due to the fact he really had to work.
26. Your cell phone shows 87 screens full of the number 2 for "repeat message" after you hear he left you a voice mail because you missed his first and only call so far!
27. Going 3-6 months without seeing your man seems like a drop in the bucket compared to what you have been through before.
28. You haven't heard from them in awhile and you find yourself reading the old letters you have received. It's just something comforting to feel close to him in a way.
29. You don't bat an eyelash when he say's "Uh, Honey they changed when I'm supposed to return home, yet again (for the 18th millionth time)".
30. Everytime you see him it feel's like it's for the first time all over again...EVERYTIME

Oh man number 18! I laughed so hard at that one!

I'm new to this, and it's so hard not to get any contact from him and going through #18 so many times during the day! Good to know I'm not going crazy, and it's just the way it is!! Thanx for the post!!

oh, just so me!!

Truth!

#18 for sure lol, I'm new to all this and it's tough to say least! Glad there's others with experience to connect with! :) I also will swear I hear the phone and trip over my own two feet trying to get to what didn't happen haha!!

The toughest job in the military is being the one left behind when your loved one is deployed.

29 lol! So true!

My bf isn't deploying but he lives 5 204 miles from my town. But all you said is so true..I want to punch every girl who is talking about her bf all the time and is crying about it that she can't see him for a week..

its beautiful

32. When you measure your relationship with number of deployments rather than years.

wow, even reading the very first one made me cry. all so true.

Thank you so much for this! My boyfriend is facing his first deployment and for a while I was thinking that I was the only one that was doing # 18. You can go from being happy, to sad, to lonely, to angry, to proud, and back to happy in a matter of less than an hour. Knowing what I'm feeling is here means a ton!

Love this. This is my first time facing deployment. My bff has been on the military for 10 years we've been distant friends for 4 n dating for 1.I new ad long as he was. In deployment was possible but got comfortable I guess. Now that I know for sure he will leave next year... reality has hit. Jus looking for advice n coping techniques

So true

love it

I love number 18!! lol

Absolutely true! hahaha Love it.

i love this! it is so true

Sooo true :)

This is so true!!

So true! I carry my phone everywhere, I was so busy at work that I didnt hear my phone and missed his first call, and probably had the hugest panic attack! It was horrible.

i love this!

I love this its so true.

Its reallyhard to stay away from ur bf for months n years nthe worst part is that u hardly receive any call frm him.. M totally confused how to control myself... Its like there is no life wothout him.:-(

I know that it is hard but just remember that its not permanent! He will come home and you will be together! My man and I spent 8 months apart and there were times when I didn't hear from him for weeks. But when you do talk to him its like the whole world stops and everything is right again! Just be patient and positive and you'll make it through! Message me anytime if you need to talk!

Thanks a lot for showing ur concern... I really need someone to share my problems with especially the one who has already gone through all this.... Are u guys still apart???

You find yourself hardly being able to carry a conversation that doesn't in someway relate back to him

OMG! i do this without noticing! lol

This is adorable.

You check your phone 3 million times a day and sometimes even hear it ring even when it's not...trip over large furniture just to get to it in time and then shake your head and laugh when you realize what just happened :)

when you carry more than one phone around the house just in case one runs out of batteries...there's always a backup...

so true! :))

I love this :)

and i didn't cry
