Chris & Lacie

My boyfriend and I have been dating for 4 months. When he gets back from basic training we will have dating for over 6 months. We live about 40 min. away from each other so before he left it wasnt like I was seeing him everyday but now that he's gone its like he broke up with  me or something. Im losing my mind not being able to at least talk to him on the phone. He has been gone for a week and a half but it feels like months. I know he's out of reception so I know I will be getting a letter soon. All I know is I have to stay busy but when Im not working, Im at home waiting for something to happen and then all those thoughts about where is he or whats he doing, come flooding back. Its not as easy as it looks, staying busy.

Things are better after you get the first letter. My boyfriend just got done with basic and so I know how you feel. Just hang in there and write all the time, it always helped me still feel connected to him.

You make it sound like its a bad change.. if anything, basic made my bf more ambitious.. He was never really big about school or anything.. he graduated, tried college, and it didnt work out.. never really a goal setter except for marrying me and now he has so many plans for himself as well as us as a couple Im just amazed.. so dont make it sound like dooms day so much :|

My boyfriend and I live in different states right now. He's deploying soon and has started talking to me less. It's taken me a couple of months but I have started dealing with it better now. I know everyone says stay busy but it's really the best advice. Make an extra effort to hang out with friends and family instead of being home waiting for something to happen. The more you hang out with other people the easier it starts to get.

I've been with this situation b4, My husband now was an ex-military, eventhough having problems from being with each other now, I just keep being strong for myself and for us. I really dont know whats the situation but, he might be busy for his deplyment and u should understand that its not easy for him too this deployment and I believe he's going home every after 6 months? so hold on to that, dont lose hope and always make him feel that he is loved. Good luck for both of us :) pray always.
