Being An Airforce Girlfriend/fiance Isn't Easy, But Oh So Worth It!Like I've seen other girls wrote, I'll give you the whole story! :)
Me and my fiance, Tyler, went to school together and knew eachother for about two years before we started dating. Previously, I was in a relationship for two and a half years and it ended, obviously, lol. Anyways, afterwards, Tyler and I started to talk more, just as friends still. Long story short, we "offically" started dating two days before he was shipped out to basic training. Just as an insight to my past: in the three days that we spent together non-stop, he showed me more respect than my previous boyfriend did in two and a half years. Anyways, I was there when he got on the bus to go to the airport to go to BMT. That was one of the hardest days of my life but the love & support of his family and mine made it so much easier. It wasn't a walk in the park but I didn't die either. The first letter I recieved from him was an emotional time for me. In all honesty, I cried for a good hour on and off because I was so happy! A WORD OF ADVICE TO ALL YOU LADIES WHO HAVE A MAN IN BMT, WRITE THEM EVERYDAY! THEY CANNOT WRITE YOU VERY MUCH, BUT HAVING SOMETHING TO READ EVERYDAY MAKES IT EASIER! YES, THEY GET THEIR MAIL EVERY NIGHT IN MOST CASES!!! Anyways, I wrote him a letter at least every other day, if not every day. The first phone call was amazing too! Halfway through BMT, I got approval that I could go to his graduation. I kept it a secret for the longest time but, with the advice from his mom, I told him I was coming. I found out why when I got there. Anyways, I flew out to his graduation on Thursday night. His graduation was Friday and we spent Friday, Saturday, and Sunday together. On Sunday, everyone went out to breakfast and afterwards, they left us alone and he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife! The next day, I had to leave to go home and he left for Tech school. Thats where he is now. Ladies, I'll assure you, tech school is much easier than basic. For me anyways. They can talk more often, you can send them things, its a WHOLE lot easier. We have found out that he graduates tech school in october and comes in, and best part of all, he is going to be stationed relatively close! 5 hours, not long at all! We have set our wedding date and cannot wait to start the rest of our lives together!
Ladies, feel free to talk to me! Having someone to talk to helps, I promise. Especially someone who honestly knows what your going through. So, if you are going through BMT right now, tech school, or it is getting ready to happen, whatever, feel free to talk!
