Sailor's Princess

My boyfriend has been in the Navy for 5 months now. Bootcamp was hard, but having him come home & leave again was really hard. It's sad to tell myself that I really should try & get use to saying goodbye, but I don't think that will ever happen. I've been with my boyfriend for about 2 & a half years now, & we were never really apart for too long. So this experience is definitely new to us. I live in California & he is currently attending school in Chicago (which is about a 5 hour flight away from each other). Each day is a struggle, because I yearn for the one man I truly love. This distance is definitely making our low stronger than ever, yet I can't help but be selfish & dream a little. I'm only 19 years old & my parents want me to finish college before I commit myself forever in marriage. Which, I do agree with, but at the same time, I want to be exactly where my boyfriend is. I want to live with him. There's no doubt in my mind on who I want to share the rest of my life with & who I want to start a family with. I know that being a military girlfriend will definitely put us through some difficult times, but I accept the challenge.
