My 'boyfriend' Is Leaving Tomorrow... Please Help Me...

I have been on and off with this guy. I care so much about him, and he's going into the army... he's leaving for 28 weeks. I don't know what to do.. I won't be able to talk to him or see him for what feels like forever... I can't stop thinking about it. He's so depressed about it, I have to be the 'strong' one because I don't want to show him how much this is effecting me. I really do care about him, but sometimes I feel like I should let him go... I don't know what to do. Please help me figure this out.

i know exactly how you feel! i was only 15 when me and my bf got together and we were only together 5 months before he left for basic but if you arent sure about your relationship then i would do what i did i wasnt sure about me and mine but i tried and we stuck it out we have been off and on to but if you two can make it through this you can make it through anything me and my bf are closer than ever now he we went to basic then AIT now he is in italy and hasnt got to come home for almost a year and we are still together its the hardest thing in the world to go through mainly when your 15 and you have no one that knows exactly what your going through because no one can truely tell you "i know how you feel" but the biggest thing to help him through this is write him ever single day i wrote every day sometime twice a day and that helps them a lot but let him know before he goes that it is going to take a couple weeks to get the letters so dont think that you arent writing its just they have so much mail to go through and sometimes they get lost. I know how you feel its hard but if you stick it out its is very rewarding in the end and your relationship will be sooo much stronger!

Thank you so much for understanding! I have nobody to talk to about it, so it's just that much harder. It's so hard just accepting the fact that you won't be able to see this person for so long. Just going from seeing him every day to not at all is the worst feeling ever. He gets back a week after my birthday.. which is in September... I don't know if I can make it that long!!. But thank you again for responding to me... You helped a lot.
