Navy Girlfriend

I am 19 and a freshman in college. Me and my boyfriend have been dating for about a year and have been good friends for about 4 years. He is in Florida and has been gone since march, I have seen him twice since then and he is coming back Christmas =). It's hard being so far away and we have been fighting a lot lately, that's why I wanted to join this. I hope I can get advice on how to show him how much I really care about him and to help him get through the hard times he is having right now!

I am 19 and also a freshman in college. My boyfriend is almost done with boot camp in the Great Lakes; we have also been dating a few months over a year. He's been my best friend since Freshman year of high school.

I'm so sorry y'all are fighting. Maybe what could help is to sit and think about the true reason for your fights. Is it your impatience, or his misunderstanding? I know that I personally have little patience when it comes to seeing and hearing from Jarred, which I have to consciously work on every day. It is just as hard for him as it is for me, and I have to be understanding. Be empathetic.

If you need any support or help, let me know!

My baby just left for the great lakes :( did you hear from him much?

Mine left on April 24th for Great Lakes as well. His mom and best friend each received a letter last week and his friend got a phone call but I haven't heard anything even though I have mailed him frequently throughout the weeks.
