New To The Army Girlfriend Thing

My boyfriend i have known since i was 4 years old. We have been bestfriends all of our life then we lost contact when we went to different schools and got new numbers, And we had re-met and now we are dating and before we started he told me that he was going into the Army. I have always seen myself dating an army man, because i have grown up with my family telling me that's who i was going to end up with. My boyfriend and his bestfriend went and signed up about a month ago, and they go to basic in October at a base in Georgia. He is only 16, but he leaves the day after he turns 17 for basic. I've been worrying every night just wondering what could happen to him, because when i read the papers that he was actually going it hit me. I'm trying to be strong about it for him, but my friend's don't understand. Like they do to a degree, but only our friends have went to the military, none of our boyfriends or girlfriends. :-/ I miss him already, all his family can talk about now is him going, and how everything is going to change, because everyday i'm at his house and he is at mine, there isn't a day that goes by that i don't see his parents and his sister and her kids, and he see's my family. He's going to be gone for Christmas which is an even bigger bummer. All of these post's on here have made me want to cry. I'm a proud soon to be army girlfriend, I just need someone to talk to about all of this. -Haley

CICI, that's how i have went to sleep allot lately. Last night i stayed up until 530 just thinking about it.<br />
Monica, we made a list too!! Cuddling and taking a million pictures were on our list too! <br />
Mpalmer, I'm getting used to the idea. Still not there completely though.

aww that's a very cute story of you guys knowing each other since you were 4. and well girl i'm on the same boat as you are right now. my boyfriend leaves for basic on august 31. right now he's on vacation with his friend, so i only have 3 weeks left with him. makes me a little sad thinking about it too. just try and spend a lot of time with him, cherish that a lot. my boyfriend and me actually made a to do list of things we wanted to do/accomplish before he left and they are all from cooking something from scratch, which we made banana pudding. :) And we have stuff like cuddle and take a million pictures( haha) on the list too. <br />
just enjoy your time with him. everything will be okay. :)<br />

It's scary and it's hard to adjust to, but before our men left, we other girlfriends didn't know if we could handle it or not either. As it turns out, we did. You will, too. If you have any questions or even just have a bad day, we will be here for you. Feel free to message me anytime.
