and holidays ur gunna complain about holidays??? my bf was deployed last year and missed freaking halloween thanksgiving christmas newyears valentinesday AND my bday.....guess freaking what?? hes being deployed again and is going to miss halloween thanksgiving christmas newyears valentines day our one year aniversary and my bday his bday summer my brothers wedding, hes missing it all bc hes going to be gone for 13 MONTHS to afghan...i unerstand basic training or boot is the the first taste and can be hard but put your situation into perspective plz and think about what you are complaining about....put it into perspective...what happens when hes deployed are you just not going to be able to hack it??? military relationships are hard thats what makes them selfless sacrifice to gain so suck it up grab your ovaries be a woman and stay strong bc hun it doesnt get easier and you better be prepared or your not gunna last

hey guys i just joined this thing and i usually dont do this kind of thing.. my boyfriend actually just got done with basic in san antonio a few months ago. It was so hard but if u get the chance to go there and see them graduate deff do it because it was one of the most exciting things of my life its wonderful!.. its hard at first but it get better and as soon as you see him you will find it so much easier even if he leaves again ":] and i thought it did go by fast and write them a lot they love it. and i felt like i became so much closer to him by writing :]

yea im asking the same question you are. mine is leaving most likly in august. maybe september. its all so crazy and not being able to see or talk to them at all at first, im going nuts right now too. :(

im still in HS, so i had classes to pass the time by. plus im in activities inside and outside school. just keep busy, talk to ppl and keep a positive attitude. if you need anything, just message =]

its gets SOOOOOOOOOOOOO easy after basic. My fiance is at Sheppard AFB and we talk every day all day!

Hey girls, <br />
I'm new to this site, but my boyfriend of two years left for basic on december 2nd. He missed christmas and new years. When reading this i totally knew what you were going through. It's good to know that i'm not alone. I can relate to you because none of my friends have ever dealt with relationships that are long distance with little communication. Your tips were very helpful ! I hope your airmen are all doing great. <br />
P.s.- do any of you know if it gets easier after basic?? <br />
<br />

hey thanks girl!!! yeah everyday gets a little easier. He actually got hurt and had to go to medical dorm for like 3 days so i was lucky to have gottento talk to him for like 30 min each night!!! His flight is grad. in the first time for th new 8 week sucks but only 5 more weeks!!!! yay! thanks girl! where you from?

Hey.<br />
I just went to Lackland to see my boyfriend graduate from basic and it was incredible. I thought it was the end of the world when he left, but trust me you'll get through. You'll definately need your friends and lots of pictures. They dont have a lot of time to write letters so dont feel like he forgot you if you dont get that many. Its hard but look at all of these people who are going through the same thing or have already been through it. STAY STRONG.<br />
