Beginning Our Journey..

My boyfriend and I are seniors in high school and graduate next month but two weeks ago he enlisted in the United States Army. I am so proud of him for doing it because this is something he has always wanted to do. We have been dating for four months but it seems like years and we are very much in love with each other. Ever since we started dating though we have never been apart for more than three days at the most and when were not together we talked to each other over the phone. He leaves for basic sometime in November if it does not get bumped up and I am so scared though that things are going to change between us even though I am hoping this journey makes us stronger. For now though I am just enjoying every minute that I have with him and showing him that I am not going to leave him.

Honestly things will change. But more in a "he now makes his bed" kinda way. :) I promise if you two truly love each other there is nothing to worry about. My boyfriend and me were best friends for 2 years and have been dating for almost a year and half. Since we have been dating I got to watch him mature from the highschool jock boy I knew, into a very wonderful man, who just happens to also be a very Handsome Soldier. ;) There will be bad days in this journey with yall, and there will be days that couldn't be more perfect. Just try and stay positive and cherish every second with him. If being an Army Girlfriend has taught me anything (its actually taught me more than I ever imagined.lol) its taught me to love, cherish, and hold on to every second you get to spend with your soldier. I wish you the best, and if you have any questions or need anything feel free to ask. :)

Thank you very much from what you have said I can not wait to look forward to watching him mature more than I already have and spend those good day's with him. Best wishes to you and your soldier as well.

That's the best thing you can do just enjoy every second that you are with him. My boyfriend is graduating in a couple of weeks from high school and then he leaves in September, so I kind of know how you feeling. Just remember to keep your head up and always be positive and most of all be strong :) Wish you the best! If anything that I could help you with message me. We are here to help :)

Thank you very much for all the support and advice. I am sorry to hear he leaves in September if you ever wanna talk I am here for you as well. Best wishes!
