Waiting For That First Letter

I never believed in love at first sight. That was until I saw Matthew.

In the end of May 2011 I went out to eat with my family and that is when I first saw him. He was our waiter and I debated if I wanted to give him my number. After a good hour there, were about to head out and I decided to go for it. To my suprise an hour later he shot me a text. I squeeled like a highschool girl. He let me know right off the bat that he would be leaving for bootcamp in August. I didnt know where the relationship was going to go, so i brushed it off and let him take me on a few dates. He told me that because he was leaving he didnt want to get into a relationship. Before we realized it we were head over heels for each other. He asked me out on my birthday June 24th and since then we have been INSEPERABLE. I spend the night at his house from when we started seeing eachother until the day he left me. Im really close with his family and often go over for dinner and to see his dogs. The day he left we exchanged letters and that is the only thing I have until I get the first letter. I sleep with his clothes on trying to remind myself of his smell. I find myself crying at night just becuase i want him to put his arms around me and hold me, but i know he cant. I write him religiously every night. All i need is that first letter and I'll be such a happier person. But this waiting game is killing me. So until then I'll remind myself of how much i love him and he loves me and look forward to the day that my own first letter comes. I love you Matthew <3 Always and forever.

I met my boyfriend the same weekend you met yours! Mine was already in the Navy, though (gotta love fleet week haha). He is about 3 hours away from me now and in some phase of training when he works 7 14-hour shifts straight. I am not complaining at all since we are working our schedules out so we can see each other every 2 weeks or so, but I can sense the deployment cloud approaching once he's done and I tear up every time I think about it. I don't want to tell him because he said he doesn't want me distraught from missing him, but I can't help it. This site has been helpful so far. Navygf, keep your chin up, if you feel this strongly for him he's probably worth the wait (I've dated many years until I found my genuine sweetheart and couldn't appreciate him more). Hope this site helps! :)

Girl I'm going through the same things. Me and james met off of okcupid.com and ever since we have been head over heels. It's so hard to keep yourself busy.
