Where to start... I met this amazing guy then found out he is in the army. I support him no matter what. This is all new to me and I have no idea how to be strong or how to act. I'm scared and just cry. If anyone could help me and just give me advice I'd love it. Thank you so much and to anyone else who has a oly friend in the army you are in my prayers <3

I thought my boyfriend was a pizza delivery boy when we met. Turns out that was his part time job the ****** is in the army. I was with an ex a long time. He joined the marines a year in. Ended up fing me over so I vowed never military ever again. Besides I don't want people to think I chase tags. Before I admitted to myself I love him I was so clear I don't want serious, I'm not waiting on him and I don't do long distance. Tried it from here to Japan. You see how that worked. He said that's ok I'll take what ever time I can get, you don't have to promise tm. So I totally get the oh crap military. Here I am waiting granted its 5 weeks so I doubt I'll have some kind of break down. Keep busy work your butt off. I work in a shoe store I've touched every shoe in that place in the past week. Our store will be amazing all because my heart is unreachable. Its ok to cry btw. a heart is a hard thing to reason with. Everything will go wrong while he's away. It will seem like a cruel joke but he'll get home and it'll feel like a day hasn't passed. He and I both feel most comfort in a hug. We hug quite often. I cried over a month of school with only two weeks of not talking. Two weeks only feels like an hour when their deployed. Here I was being a baby. Anyway. You can handle it.

I went through that exact situation with my boyfriend!! It sucks, sometimes I'd get so frustrated and mad but I didn't give up because I love him. The first time he came home made me realize it was worth all those lonely nights. Being able to see his whole face light up when he saw me was priceless. If your able to talk to him. Have "dates" time where you just talk on the phone trust me my boyfriend didn't like talking on the phone but now he loves our dates! Hang out with friends work school hit the gym read a good book or just stories on here. Staying busy is key. If you need anyone to talk to just message me :-)
