New Navy GirlfriendMy Sailor left to Basic Training November 22nd. He's been one of my best friends for 4 years, and have been dating him for 5 months now.
I love him with all of my heart. From the beginning I knew this wouldn't be easy, but I know that in the end it will be worth it.
It's been a little over two weeks since he's been gone and though they've gone by faster than I anticipated, it still feels like forever since the last time I saw him. It is really hard going through my day without knowing how he's doing, without being able to text him like I always did. This has been hard on me. I find myself tearing up throughout the day, thinking about how much I miss him.
I have been really busy lately, so it has helped to keep my mind off it, but I still miss him like crazy.
I wish I could say I will see him at the end of Basic Training, but unfortunately I don't think I will be able to attend his graduation...
Which really depresses me. I feel like I will be letting him down if I don't attend. I am completely committed to him and this relationship. There is just no one else I can see myself with but him.
It's so comforting to know there are people out there who are going through the same thing. It is really encouraging to hear stories of couples that have made it through this journey.
