Whats To Come!?

Hello (:
I joined this site a while ago, wrote one story, but didn't come back for a while. Reading all of the things on here made me constantly obsess about my boyfriend leaving even though we had plenty of time so i had to avoid it so i could enjoy while he's here haha. He was supposed to leave July 6th originally but luckily, it got moved to aug. 30th, so we're able to have the summer and when he leaves i'll be going back to school and keeping myself busy. I'm really nervous about him leaving because other then him being just a boyfriend he truly is my best friend. As the days are coming closer to his departure i'm realizing more how much i need him around. I have no idea what to do once he leaves! So far the assortment of stories i've read everyone seems to be older than me and so they have the chance to move in with their boyfriends and other things like that. I'm 17, my boyfriend is 18, i still have my senior year of highschool to go, then four years of college.Seeing how i don't have the chance to move where ever he is i'm nervous about how things will work. I feel likes he's going to be missing out on important parts of my life. I have so many worries and fears about whats to come my questions are endless haha. But just a few that are on my mind at the moment... Should i get him a gift before he goes? or is it better to wait till after basic? and what kind of present? ... Is he going to be able to come home after basic? or anytime during his service? ...I'm not very educated on the whole airforce thing quite yet, but i'd love to be ! I feel stuck because i want to keep reading all of your stories to figure out what to expect but at the same time i'm afraid to know whats coming! Everyone here seems so great and i'm hoping to make some friendships here (: (for real this time because i'll actually be coming on here now that he's almost going to be gone!)

usafgirl- thanks (: long distance is hard! I live in MA so the chances of my boyfriend being stationed close to me is not high at all, so i'll be right there with you on the whole distance thing haha (:<br />
<br />
uncertainandworried- Good to know! I'm looking forward to making friends with all of you! I'll probably end up just getting him a bunch of things for graduation, We take alot of pictures already and even have a scrapbook going haha, but i never thought of taking silly videos, thanks for the idea (: Thats awseome thats he's graduating soon!!! (:<br />

Lchristine5- I'm definately a worrier so its hard for me to let go of what ifs and all that stuff haha, but i'm gonna try hard to ! I'll be writing him a novel everyday lol (:<br />
<br />
To all of you, thanks for the support! I wish all of you good luck with everything with your men(: I'm excited to have all this support here, I'm not quite dealing with all the bmt and tech school stuff yet, but soon enough i will, and i'll understand better what everyone is talking about. Regardless, i'll definately be supporting all of you back! (:

Hey :) Let me just say you are lucky to have the summer with him :)<br />
Yeah most people on this site are in their 20s... im 18 however and my boyfriend turns 20 in October. <br />
This website is amazng! It will help you so much and you will really make friends with the girls. We have all gone through the same experience so we understand each other and the many things we feel during the 8.5 weeks of bmt and then tech school. <br />
<br />
To answer your question, once he graduates from bootcamp he will go to tech school. Now, idk much about reserve because my boyfriend is active duty but after tech school, they come home for two weeks. My bfs tech school lasts about 4 months... it all depends on their job. <br />
<br />
It's ok if you want to get him a gift... but he most likely won't be able to take it... just try spending as much time together oh and take a ton of pictures and videos of you two! Trust me... my boyfriend and I made lots of videos and it just made things a little bit easier :)<br />
<br />
Once he leaves, the first week will be awful... and during the 8.5 weeks there will be times where you will be really down... but trust me it all gets better. Once you start getting letters from him, in which he tells you how much he loves you, you will just be assured everything will be ok. He will call you too, depending on his TI... but dont expect a call every weekend because if they dont get to call you you will be really upset. <br />
<br />
Believe it or not, writing to him helps a lot! It kinda feels like your on the fone with him, except you're the only one talking lol but you can imagine the things he would reply. <br />
<br />
For now, don't worry about it too much. Be with your boyfriend and make each other happy. Make a lot of happy memories so that you two can remember them once he's gone. My boyfriend graduates in 5 days and i am beyond excited! You can add me here and im Also on facebook if you need any help, even if its just venting :) Im Conny de la Torre<br />
<br />
Best of luck ♥

It's going to be ok. You will have so much support from this website and all these girls. It is hard to realize they will be leaving. My fiance will be moving to California to be stationed there and I live in Missouri. Just remember ya'll sound like you have an amazing relationship. You will be ok. Take pictures and write letters. If you need anything at all (venting, someone to talk to) I'm here. I will be going through my fiance leaving in September. Just know your not alone.
