My boyfriend went through bootcamp in the summer and now we only see each other every weekend because we have not got married yet and he is only a couple hours away. What I have learned is that I need to be supportive while focusing on myself. Keep yourself busy, with a job, college, hobbies,etc. He is very busy wherever he is at and having a lot of down time is when I get really depressed about him being gone during the week. But you also have to be prepared to stop your life at any second to be fully supportive. Like when he calls from boot camp, even if your at work go talk to him. A few weeks ago something happened and I had to drive to my boyfriend right away. Work, college and everything else are very important to keeping myself busy and focusing on myself, but I am very flexible with them because his needs come first now.

Thank you for sharing:) I hope I can see my boyfriend on the weekends after he finishes boot camp. Yea, any time he will be able to call, I will take the call. I'm in college so I can just walk out and take a call if he calls. & that's so smart to keep yourself busy because I know that if im not busy I will get depressed also. How long have you been with him? Thank you:) I'm here if you ever need to talk. <3

Aww, i will be so sad the day i go to the airport with my boyfriend. You been with your boyfriend for 8 years thats such a long time. By the time my boyfriend finishes be will be together for 7 or 8 years. I know that no matter how long any relationship is, it is still tough when the one we love goes into the military. Just stay strong and remember that you guys can and will get through everything. If you need anything, im here for you.

Thank you so much, it means a lot to me. I know it will be rough but we both love each other and we can get through it. We just need to stay positive and work through the hard times. I know you have been going through this since last year, i wish you the best and if you ever need anything im here for you:) just stay strong <3

i am also new to this. my boyfriend of 8 yrs just left yesterday for boot camp. i didn't think it was going to be as hard as it was to let him go.): i was ok until we got to the airport and he had to leave. he is joining the airforce and with what he is going in for he will be gone for about 1 1/2 years. i know that it is going to be hard but me being so proud of what he is doing makes it a little easier. i got to talk to him last night when he got there just for him to tell me he made it and that he loved me. i don't think missing him will get any easier. but i know that i just have to stay strong for him. keep your head up! i am going through the same thing as you so i am here if you need to talk!

I know how you feel. My sailor and I were together 4 years when he left last year for boot camp. It is truly a terrible feeling to think of being parted. But what you have to do now for yourself is change your frame of mind. Be proud that he is doing something for his life and his future. Then focus on yours as you support his. It will not be easy but if it is what you two want then you both will get through it. When you see him you both will love and appreciate each other even more than you have before. Have faith, trust in your love even when moments of doubt cross your mind. I am here if you would like to talk <3 I have been doing this for almost a year now. Stay strong!
