Signs Of You Missing Your Airman

First off, I just wanted to mention that this group has almost a thousand members! The marines has over two thousand but ehh I love this group :) I found this and wanted to share it with my fellow military girlfriends!

Missing your airman:

1. You wear his old sweatpants and sweatshirts to bed.

2. You find yourself listening to songs that remind you of him when you're alone.

3. You get up in the middle of the night to check your phone and emails.

4. You sleep with your cell phone in case he calls in the middle of the night.

5. You love watching cute love movies because it reminds you of all the cute things he does when he's home.

6. You haven't shaved your legs in weeks.

7. The mailman knows you because you are always out waiting for him to come.

8. You start paying close attention in class when the words "military" or "iraq" are mentioned.

9. You suddenly have an obsession with anything military related.

10. You see someone wearing an army, navy, air force, or usmc shirt and you get this overwhelming urge to talk to them.

11. You make friends with strangers online just because they are in the same situation as you and are the only ones that can truly understand what you are going through.

12. You can't decide what to wear when you meet him at the airport because his flight comes in at a ridiculous hour in the morning and you want to look cute, but not too cute, because your cutest outfit you want to save for your first full day together.

13. Your Christmas together is... apart.

14. You find yourself checking your mail every fifteen minutes.

15. You know all the time differences between where you are and Iraq, Ireland, Kuwait, Italy, Germany, Korea, and every state in the U.S.

16. The highlight of your day is getting a letter that was mailed a month ago.

17. And if you don't get a letter, the highlight of your day is writing him a letter that you know he will be able to read in a month.

18. You realize that HOMECOMING is so much more than a football game.

19. You want to hit any happy couple you see together

20. You get excited about "unknown" phone numbers calling you.

21. You've exhausted every idea a brain could have of what to put in a box.

22. You see a "support our troops" sticker on a car when you are stuck in traffic and you find yourself guessing about who they know that is deployed and thinking about their entire life story.

23. When the clock says 11:11, you find yourself wishing for the same thing every time: a call from your soldier.

24. You get excited when its only 5 months until you see your Soldier instead of 7!

25. You can't stand girls that talk about missing their boyfriends who live a few hours away. You just want to yell "drive and go see them them" because if you had the chance, you would jump on the first plane to go see your soldier no matter how far it is.

26. You hate going to places that remind you of him because it gets you to miss him.

27. You wouldn't dream of walking out of the house without the cell phone and every number you have is forwarded to that cell.

28. You find yourself randomly crying from just looking at a picture of the two of you together.

29. You find yourself randomly crying and you sometimes have no idea why.

30. You stay on the internet for hours searching for anything and everything about the military.

31. You talk to your friends about him so much that they know his full name, birthday and even his favorite color.

32. You find yourself speaking in military acronyms (that no one other than you and he would understand).

32. You are reading this and smiling and nodding because you know it's so true

I've realized that I've done almost everything on this post and he's only been in BMT for a week. I love reading this, thank you for posting it.

I absolutely loved this post. I haven't had anyone in the military in my family, so my boyfriend is the first experience of this that I've had. Wow! It is a completely different lifestyle than I could have ever imagined.

Hahaha I absolutely love this!!!

I am not an USAF girlfriend officially. But I still do this!

<p>Im only 16 and my bf left for the air force a couple of months ago and I no I am still young but I do every single one of these things. I couldn't help but cry and think of him.</p>

All of these are def true especially the anything military obsession. I don't go anywhere without wearing something with airforce on it I even have my airforce s/o pin on my purse and getting my nails done with airforce design next week before he comes home in November lol

I teared up when I read this, because every single thing here is true.

This describes me to a T!!lol!! and to the advice given above, WOW...5 months?? And still together 27 years later..that's beautiful:-) I just love this note!! Good Job!!

Hey, I know exactly how you are feeling. I spent 20 years in the Air Force and when I was away from home, I knew that my wife missed me alot just like I did with her. I see that you two have not married yet. Why? My wife and I met in December, just before Christmas. She invited me to her folks house for Christmas Dinner. We went out several times, slept in the dorm room on many occasions, and by the time I knew it, I was living with her in her parents house and by the time I knew it, we were married within 5 months after meeting each other. Now today, we have been married for over 27 years. So my advice to you, don't wait, next time he comes back, GET MARRIED. If you feel this way, get MARRIED now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
