Deployment 08I met my boyfriend a week and a half before his deployment. It's kinda funny how we came to be, in an ironic kinda way. haha. Within 30 minutes of meeting each other we called dibbs. To explain, I told my friend that i called him and he told his he called me. Two days after meeting and talking on the phone all night, we both knew we really liked each other. So after attending an oyster roast on the outskirts of town, I was walking outside with him to his car to show him the way out of the neighborhood. When we got to his car, he kissed me, outta the blue. As i walked back towards the roasting i told him, "Oh by the way, we're dating now." and his reponse was "Good, thats how i wanted it to be." haha. Kinda backwards but it worked. haha.
Well, today marks our 3 weeks together. Although, he has been overseas for most of our relationship i can honestly say i love this boy. He's amazing. I know that i will be spending many-a-day without him physically present, including our first 8 or 9 month aniversaries and valentines day but i still would not leave him for anything or anyone. He completes me and I know he feels the same about me.
We are currently dealing with his first deployment. Its different than I imagined. I miss him terribly and think about him everyday and I know he does the same. Its tough not seeing him or talking to him everyday but I'm strong enough to handle it and won't let anyone tell me differently. After all, being an Army girlfriend is my superpower! =]
