Guam!!!!So, my boyfriend is currently in tech school in Ft. Leonard Wood, MO! He just found out this week he is 'red horse' and is going to Guam! Guam ... really Air Force could you **** my relationship up even more. Distance doesn't bother me now, mainly becasue I can financially buy an airline ticket every 2-3 months to go wherever he is and it really not cost me more than $400. But Guam the tickets are like $1800 ... and thats the cheapest!!! So, my options have been limited so fast! I feel like every conversation we have is about Guam, and what is going to happen to us, and me crying !! Like believe me when I say it sucks and he is still so close ( well like 800 miles away) and I am going to see him in less than 3 weeks!
So, I have been thinking . . . I love this kid, like I know I'll be in love with him for well forever, but I know that I cannot be away from him for at least 2 years and only seeing him twice a year. I need to plan, planning makes me reassured that everything will be okay, but he just never wants to talk about what is going to happen. I always decide and he follows, but for once I want him to tell me what he wants. I do not want to say "I am going to Guam with you," thats like inviting myself to a party. It is just not done.
I have thought of a few options though . . . and maybe people can way in on them becuase you all have insight on this topic. My mom, and grandparents, and rest of my family are all to judgement to really see my point of few, and what is something that is reasonable.
A little background . . .
I am almost 20, finishing my sophmore year in college at PITT. Financially, I have no problem taking out loans to go to school because I am sure my parents will not pay for it if I move to GUAM. I have no problem moving that far; I already live away from everyone.
He is 19, in the Air Force 6 years will be in Guam for atleast 2.
1. Get married, live on ba
2. Move to Guam and go to college, rent an apartment together and live there.
3. Move to Guam go to college, live on campus
4. Stay here, and have a skype relationship for 2 years
5. Break up.
I am just not sure if i can do the 4th. I love him so much to be away from him, but at the same time it is not fair to me to be away and see him twice a year if that. I feel like I would feel better and not so depressed and sad if I was alone opposed to constantly fighting and missing one another. So really it comes down to it, is it stupid for me to go to Guam . . . is it wrong to pick up my entire life and go after him?
Advice and words of wisdom are greatly appreciated, anything would help . . .
