Missing Him Makes Me Realize That I Am Lucky To Have Someone To Miss

My boyfriend and I have been together for the past 3 months. We've known each other for five years though and have always been close friends. When he went to basic training we weren't together but we wrote each other regularly and my feelings for him grew. When he was on leave we realized that we had strong feelings for each other, but it was not until he was at his duty station that we began dating. Every leave after that has made us closer but it's also harder every time. He's being deployed very soon and I have no idea how I'm going to make it through a whole year without him. It's hard enough when I can't speak to him for a week. He's definitely the one for me and as soon as he gets back we have plans to get married. He tries so hard to be strong for me, but sometimes he just needs comforting. It's hard to be the rock, but he's so worth it. He's definitely my everything and I just want him to come home safely to me. It's great to find people who can relate. So if anyone has any stories to share or tips for me I would love to hear them. God bless all of you and your soldiers, I'm praying for all of them every day.

Im pretty much in the same boat. My soldier is deploying in October and will be gone till August. Im already dreading it. We both have our fears because of this deployment. I had a cousin that had to deploy but its not the same at all. I hate not hearing from him and since we can talk daily now its going to be even harder. We are making plans to get married as soon as he comes home just both nervous about the deployment. Any advice how to make deployment easier for us?

Wow, I'm so glad I found this place. My story is similar as well. I met my guy, Jay, in high school. We've known each other for about five years as well. We just started dating this past February. I have always loved him and knew I'd do anything for him. He told me last year he wanted to join the Navy, and I supported him. I'm not a very clingy person, nor is he, but I don't know how I'm going to handle it when he goes away to basic training. But I'm glad I have a place where I can talk to women who are going through similar situations. :D

my boyfriend is leaving for SEAL training in may and i know i'm going to have to be without him for awhile, but i'd go anywhere to be with him. It's going to be really hard at first but it helps knowing there's other girls on here that are going through the same thing.

your story is just like mine! me and my man we're best friends and we just decided after 5 years to start dating we started dating the day he left for afghanistan. it was hard there were so many things running threw my mind like can i do this? is this stupid? but i realized he is worth it and he is who i wanna marry. it has been a month now and suprisingly its been ok. we communicate over facebook ( he messages get sent to my phone) and he calls me when he can. the weeks we dont talk get hard but then i log on to here. we also send each other things like letters pictures and he sometimes shops online for me! you will survive hun and when you do you will be such a stronger person,, if we can get threw this then we can get throw anything.
