It's Complicated...So I have just joined EP and have decided to share my story with whoever wants to know :]
I guess I am not technically an Army Girlfriend, but I might as well be. Hence the, it's comlicated....
My soldier and I have dated before, in high school, but we went our separate ways when I went out of state to college. Well, now, 3 years later, we are both finally single. When I was visiting home last week he happened to be home on leave (he just returned from his first deployment in Iraq) and we saw each other. The moment I saw him again everything we had way back when came rushing back. I welcomed the feelings, memories, and ease of being with him. We only had a week together but we spent almost every day together and I loved every minute of it.
We haven't talked much about the future and honestly, I don't know if we have one at the moment. Our lives have been taking us in different directions for 3 years and it was just by chance that we were at home at the same time. I know that my feelings for him have not changed in the past years; I am still as in love with him now as I was when I left him 3 years ago and would love nothing more than to be with him now. He was and always will be my first love, my best friend, and such a huge part of my life that I will never be able to forget him.
I want you all to know that you are such an inspiration to me! I hope to be an Army girlfriend soon and I hope that I can come to you with my troubles! :P
God bless you all :]
