First Deployment.

I haven't heard from him in a little over a week I know I should be so grateful in order to have heard from him at all. I love him with all of my heart and would never give up on him. I get a little worried sometimes that he may change his mind because of the distance but then I know in my heart that won't happen because he loves me to. I wait every day to see if I get a phone call and some of the times I am dissapointed when he doesn't but other days I just tell myself he will call as soon as he gets the chance. The other day he tried calling though also and it was from an unknown number but I didn't answer because I had prank phone calls all day that day also so now idk when the next time will be. I left him a message on his phone and a message on facebook and just hope to hear from him soon. I know that this is all worth it in the end though I just have to get through each day.

I'm going thru my first deployment and it's his 3rd and its so nice and comforting and it makes me feel like I'm not going crazy that I'm not the only one freaking out about when am I gonna hear from him next. And what really got to me was when you said you get worried about him changing his mind because of the distance. That is my worst fear. Granted we've been together for over a year and a half I still get scared even when he is constantly telling me he loves me. We have 5 months to go in a 6 month deployment, I just keep telling myself one more day closer and we all just have to stay strong like they are. Ive kept myself busy with do it yourself projects but just try to stay busy it keeps your mind from wondering. I hope all the best for you and your sailor :)

Oh my gosh I know I was freaking out and I finally got an E-mail today it was only like two sentences but that's okay.. it's something! and yeah it's a constant fear because of the distance and that's the exact same thing that I tell myself everyday to get through! I hope the best for you and your sailor also:)

My boyfriend is more than halfway through his first deployment!

I don't know how your phone works... but I was forever getting restricted calls... I think it was a verizon thing... but I've figured out that when the number says "unavailable" it's him and if it says restricted it's a spam call or prank call! Maybe that'll help you next time! Hang in there though! It'll go by a lot fast than you think!!!

Thanks! And yeah I kept getting unknown numbers calling me then one of his friends told me that he tried calling and it was from unknown so now idk when i'll be able to hear from him again. I just get nervous lol cause of the distance I know I won't give up and I hope he won't either but I just haven't figured out what's normal he's only been on deployment for 2 weeks and i've only heard from him twice so idk how everything works though! Thanks for that though it helps!:)

Stay strong girl! My first deployment is coming up fast. We have to be strong for our boys!

Thanks!! And so true its def harder some days than others but we get through it for them!

and I also just sit here and wonder if it's normal to not here from him like this right now.. i think it is cause it's only been two weeks but idk

I think that's normal. When my boyfriend first started going underway I heard from him only when he was on duty. Because he was so busy and had to sneak away. Then I heard from him a lot more. When he left in December he was really busy and didn't have alot of time. I was really hurt because he had gotten ahold of me more all the other times but not this time. He's probably is just really busy is all and will get ahold of you when he can! my name's Allie btw.

Alright I thought it was too I just over think sometimes!! lol and yeah i'm sure he will call with in the next few days and I understand being able to talk all the time then next to nothing at all. haha. And my names Victoria:)

I over think stuff too! You are not alone! The first couple of days are rough on me when he's underway. Then I get used to when he's going to get ahold of me and I find a sort of happy medium. I get a lot of sleep when he's gone! that's the only good thing about it

I get a lot of sleep too! haha the last couple days I haven't just cause I have been anxious to hear from him because they just got to there next port! and i feel better knowing that i'm not alone with all of this and it's nice to know that there are others going through the same things.
