Put It All Out There?

Ladies & Gents...

It's almost Valentine's Day which has definitely got me thinking about my soldier, I call him that even if he isn't actually mine at the moment. I'm not a big fan of forced displays of affection...but with Valentine's approaching and him deployed....I can't help bu think about how much he means to me.

I've written probably the longest letter I've ever written, talking about the times we've known each other and how special each moment we've spent together is to me. I don't use the word "love" because I'm not sure I'm there yet...but I make it clear how special and important he is to me.

Do I send it? Does it put added pressure on him that he doesn't need while he is deployed? Is it probably nice for him to know that someone cares that much about him?

What should I do? If I want it there in time for Valentine's Day it needs to go out ASAP.

Pretty sure my letter still hasn't made it to him yet. Seems like mail takes forever. But, we've been talking more, still just via chat. I'd love to hear his voice but I'm not sure when that will happen. Through our chatting though I feel closer to him (well a close as one can feel to someone thousands of miles away), I just still have this fear holding me back from just believing that he could feel the same and I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because I always seem to start the convos but he chats back. I figure if he didn't want to or couldn't he just wouldn't respond.

I'm nervous I didn't lay everything out clearly like I wanted to in my letter but hopefully it did. Trying to be patient and wait and see. He did recently bring up seeing me when he gets back, which thrilled me more then I could ever say. I've really got to get over my insecurities and just continue to be there or him no matter the outcome. I had no idea how hard this would be!

You should send it! Him reading a letter from you would put a smile on his face. My boyfriend always tells me that him and the other guys with girlfriends are always thinking about us, more than we think. :)

I think you should send it! He should def know how you feel and I don't see how it would put pressure on him knowing that someone out there cares for him so deeply. If anything it'll probably encourage and uplift his spirits! Send it:)

I did it...we'll see...I'm gonna be a nervous reck the next few weeks...

Well done you! Let us know how it goes down!!! :)
