The Double Whammy - I'm An Army Fiance In A Long Distance Relationship!!!forgive the lack of proper punctuation but my need to share overpowers my need to uphold conventions. i just want to share lol.
i met my fiance in the summer of 2010 while visiting the US. up to that point i had never had much luck with love and guys and had began to doubt i ever would. i was kinda dating someone else when we met and i wasnt very interested in starting something new without ending this other thing.
anyways over the course of the summer we spoke at different intervals on the phone and in person. then one day it just happened. i looked at him and could see my self being more to him than just a friend. it was the final day of my visit and i had to return home to my own country.
then came the skyping and the phone calls, the instant messages and the texts. it was continuous. the first time we spoke wen i got home, we talked for 8 hours!!! gosh lol. we quickly beame friends and our relationship built up from there. i started going to see him every couple of months. and man was it hard being in different countries but somehow we seemed to make it work because of our committment to each other and to making it work.
then in april he proposed to me while we stood in a boston market getting food. something so routine. god i love this guy. i told hime yes. being in a distance relationship forced us to become serious with each other because otherwise it would fail.
he knows i want a better proposal but i understood that i wud have to wait cus he doesnt make much money.
we had spoken about him joining the army a couple times before and as the reality of not getting a well paying job set in, he decided that in order for us to move forward he wud have to join the army. it was a sacrifie he wud be willing to ake for our future.
i support him in his decision. its been one day now and i had to look for a support group cus i'm dealing with a double whammy - we're in a distance relationship and he just enlisted in the army!!! god. some people might say i''m crazy but i have found the man who takes care of me, supports me in all my decisions and wants the best for me. we have more of a life apart than most people have together. so yes i will risk it becuase i know it will pay off in the long run
if anyone has a similar experience i wud love to chat and exchange more. i know i'm in pretty rare group (my double whammy) but if u meet one category hit me up.
