It Gets Easier, Right?

Hey Im really new to this...My boyfriend left a few days ago for bootcamp.  He had to wait 10 months or so after officially signing up so I thought Id have plenty of time to prepare for this, but now that its here Im really struggling. I heard he wont have much time to write and he probably cant call. Im sure I wont get a letter for at least a few weeks...does anyone know? The tough part is hes getting sent straight from bootcamp to Pensicola for A school, so I wont be able to see him until the beginning of Feb. Yikes. On day 3 that just seems unbearable. I miss him terribly already. Hes been one of my best friends for 3 years and my boyfriend for almost a year now. When will I start to get used to this? Im so proud of him and happy for him and I knew it would be difficult, but I diddnt expect to be this heartbroken. Any advice?

Well, at least you had ten months to kinda prepare... my boyfriend went to MEPS and a month later he was offered a job on this last Tuesday and now he's leaving next Tuesday...<br />

He's going to Pensacola for A School also, what a coincidence.<br />

But we're all going to get through this. I will... somehow and I know you will too!

My fiance left almost a month ago for boot camp, and I promise you even in this short amount of time, it does get better. It is still hard, but things will be ok. I got my first letter from him last week and it made everything so much better! They don't have alot of time to write, so don't expect the letter to be really long, but what little it says will mean the world to you! I read it every night! Also I know for me that writing him makes me feel better. It's like that is our time together, and I look forward to it all day!

I cant wait to see him again! Thanks for the comment it really helps to know that there are others going through the same thing. Hang in there!

it is really tough. I am going through the same thing but I did get a letter after the first week and I got another one week 2. Just remember that he is thinking about you too. It does not really get easier but it will be worth it when you can see him again : )
