He's Home But, I'm At School

Hi my name is Kaitlin. I am 19 years old and have been dating my boyfriend who is in the army for 6 years on and off. Seems like a long time but, when you know.. you know. I've always known he was going to join the Army but what I didn't know was how much it would break me down. It has been extremly hard. He's done basic training and airborne now. He is finally home again but, this time I can't always be home because I am in college and I don't have classes that I can miss this semester. It is really breaking my heart to know he is home and I can't be with him. I already had to wait two months... I don't want to not be able to see him when he only has 10 days home. I never thought an hour and a half could seem so far ( that is how far I am from him at home). I don't know how to handle this. He also talks all the time about wanting to get engaged butttt I don't think it'll happen. Unfortunately my school work has become less important and I've been very depressed. All I want to do is be with him. I want to be engaged. I know he is the one and he feels the same but, money is the problem. I don't know what to do anymore.

aww that is crappy! i just graduated from college in December. It was hard finding time for my guy when he could come home. He drove over 10 hours to come see me. It was a big compromise for him, but he made it happen. I swamped myself in school work to keep my mind off of things. I know all you want to do is get married and be with him. That's how i feel right now. But you obviously know school is important too. Im sure you will figure out a way to see each other. Where there's a will, there's a way ;-) keep your head up!
