Well This Is Awkward...


My name is Pepper, and my fiance, Will, and I have been together for well over a year. He just joined up with the AF, and he's trying to get into the Predator Drone program, and I have never been more proud of him. I joined this group because Will and I were best friends before we started dating in High School, and he spent two years wooing me. We've recently moved in together and I'm dreading it when he goes to boot/ships out. I'm a girl who needs her guy by her side or she starts to wander, something to pour her affection on (I'm thinking of getting a bird once he's gone) and I've tried long-distance before, and it hasn't worked out. I joined because I know I'm gonna need moral support if our relationship is gonna work, and I need someone (somepeople?) other then my family and friends (who never really got why I was with Will) in my corner. I've been lurking here for a while, and you all seem like wonderful girls. So there is my spigel, and I'm just crossing my fingers that my boi gets the program he wants. (I'd much rather him be in Nevada as a Drone manipulator (proper term?) then in the sandbox as a mechanic, his close second option.) So yeah...Hi.

I am sooo happy for you to have found this site early on because it took me a good week after he left and that first week was SO hard I wish I had these girls then. Everyone is amazing! Write everything down it helps. And within like 5 minutes of posting something on here at least one of us will have some positive words or encouragement and advice for you :)

Yeah, I remember being at my lowest and having these girls pick me up. My civi friends just don't cut it with advice anymore. lol But congrats and welcome! Cherish ALL the time you have with him before he goes, take pictures, record videos, write a letter or two beforehand. Anything. You'll love having those things to look at while he's gone. And of course, we're all here if you need anything. :)

Welcome hunni!! The girls here are GREAT...it so comforting coming on this website and talking to them..because you will soon feel very alone && like no one understands you && your situation. I wish I would have found this site sooner...!! But enjoy your time with your boy before he deploys! Time will go super fast hunni...but again WELCOME! Talk to us..we are here for you =)

Thanks! He hasn't been told when he's going to Basic yet, but we'll be getting that info soon. I'm very excited to be here, and plan to post pics of us as soon as I can. Thanks for the tip on the letters! Sounds fun. I was going to ask for an extra pair of dogtags. I have my dad's from when he was in the navy, and both of my grandfather's when they were in the AF, and I want his now too.

Welcome to the group!!! ^_^ Feel free to come here and while complain vent AND rejoice!!! We'll be her to help you through it. We want to let you know that you're not alone in this and we'll do our best to give you advice. <br />

P.S Write letters EVERYDAY if you can. Your airman will LOVE them. ^_^

Welcome to the group! All of these ladies are incredible and will be here to help you through everything :) Basic is hard, I wont sugarcoat it at all. But it gets much easier. As for the needing a boy by your side thing....thats going to all disappear once he leaves. When my boyfriend comes home in June, he will have been gone for a total of 8 months. But I can promise you this, him being away at basic is going to make you two grow so much stronger and waiting for him to come home is going to be a given. You won't question it at all :) Let me know if you have any questions...when does he leave?
