New To This

My boyfriend and I have been together for about three years now and he just left for basic training at Fort Jackson on August 22nd. I am so in love with my soldier and can't wait until I get to kiss and hug and just be with him again. I know it hasn't been that long but It's hard not being able to see him or hear his voice. So far I have gotten only one letter and can't wait for the next one to arrive in the mail! I feel so alone with all of this and I feel like nobody knows what I am going through that I have here to talk to like my friends and family. That's why I joined this group so that I could have someone to talk to that is going through the same thing that I am. So please feel free to share your experiences and any advice that you may have, and I will do my best to do the same!

Hey there I've been with my bf for 4 years and 4 months.. He left for basic to fort Jackson as well but he's been gone since july 8.. It's been two months and I still miss him like crazy and still cry for him.. I can tell you that the first couple of weeks are the worse I fell into depression and wouldnt want to do anything.. Now I'm starting to get better and getting use to the idea of not having him or hearing his voice.. Since he's been gone I've reveived 3 letters and one call from him which sucks!!! What also sucks is that he graduates in about 2 weeks and I won't be able to go do to family problems so I feel so sad and bad that I can't make it!! So I won't see him till he comes back maybe in December! But what can I stay you just have to be really really strong cause it's not easy at all!! I'm not the best person in giving advice cause I myself am trying to be strong about it but it's hard!! But just stay strong and I wish you the best! If u want u can't message me cause alot of sometimes I need people to talk to that are going through the same thing cause that really helps!!

Well who knows maybe for you the letters will be different cause for me my bf writes to me one week then the next week to his mom and just continue like that the good thing is that i keep in touch with his mom and thats how i know and in every letter he sents her he tells her to remind me that he loves and that he has not forgotten me so that makes me feel better .I know it really sucks that i cant make it to his graduation i feel that hes probably going to be upset at me and maybe not want to be with me when he comes back and i really dont want to loose him.. I meen in one of his letters he told me that he didnt think it would be worth it goint all the way over there and spending so much money just to see him for a day or two so i feel as if he already understands if i cant make it but i wouldnt care spending so much money just to see him for a couple of hours but theres really nothing i can do about it.. =( But hopefully he understands!! So are you going to attend your bfs graduation?? =)
