when your sailors go underway..what happens? Do they just up and leave whenever their told too? When do you hear from them? I know theres no contact by phone & my boyfriend has my email address,but I dont have his yet. My friend who's boyfriend was in the navy yrs ago said that sometimes they arent allowed to tell anyone the exact day they are leaving.So now im confused its not really comforting that he might just up and leave.. =/ I tried to ask him if I will hear from him or not & he said he doesnt know what to expect on a ship b/c its new to him too. After that idk he seemed to get annoyed with me b/c he was busy =( so I said ok fine we dont have to talk about it now and that I was sorry. I care about him alot and I dont wanna loose him but now im afraid I pushed him away with asking..hes never reacted like that before with me.Well I hope we talk tomorrow.
