He's Away & I'm Missing Him Already...

Everyone has a story & I'm pretty positive there's more than 1 out there like mine.

I met my now boyfriend 3 1/2 years ago. We've been on & off & on again. Too many times too count. I am happy to say that we've been on for quite a while now. I moved in with him around 6 months ago. On one of our "off again" times he decided to join the army. I have successfully made it through basic training & am now gearing up for his deployment in May or June. I've never really been through this before and I am definitely getting more nervous as the time approaches.

I guess I'm just looking for more out there that are going through the same thing or have gone through it before. Pre-deployment nerves are killing me.

As of right now he is away training all week....I figure if I'm having problems missing him now- I'm going to be a wreck when he leaves for a year.

hey girlie!. My boyfriend is gone on a year long deployment and i'm almost 6 months through it. my story is similar to yours, i've known mine for 3 n half years as well and we were together back when we first met then broke off complete connection and eventually got together again. i definitely know how the on and off feels like. message me if you have any questions i'd be happy to help out with whatever you need!

My bf just left sunday for a year long deployment and this is my first time dealing with this- his third- but im not gonna lie its the HARDEST thing ive ever had to do! I had to have my lil bro stay with me the first night and stayed with my parents the 2nd night bc it was just too much to handle...I didnt get to say anything except goodbye before he walked away for the plane at the airport bc he was too emotional n didnt wanna show it but if theres anything even the silliest thing you havent told him make him hear it it will help you in not regretting not saying something! Sry this is a lil long im still in the shock stage lol best of luck to you guys!!
