Swept Off My Feet By A Man In Uniform

For as long as I can remember I promised myself I would never date someone in the military. I knew I just couldn't handle all of the uncertainty, the moving, the seperation. All of that changed when I met my boyfriend. We met at school last winter and hit it off right away. We haven't been dating that long but we know what we have is real and want to spend the rest of our lives with each other and I have become more supportive of the him being in the military.
I wrote off the idea of him being deployed since he is in the national guard but he came home from drill and said he may be getting deployed to Afghanistan in October. I tend to see the negative in every situation so this is hitting me hard and I don't know where to turn. That is what got me here, I am looking for women to just talk to who understand what I'm going through and to learn from their expierences.

Keep your chin up hun! If you know that he is the one that you want, everything will work out. I know it is hard to see positives in a situation like ours, but we are all going through similar situations. Do not forget that you have hundreds of strong, incredible women here to support you.<br />
Message me if you ever need to talk!

Hey girl. My boyfriend just enlisted in the Army and I'm with you. I freaked out when he told me that after basic and AIT he'll be deployed for about a year. I'm not sure what to expect. I'm fully supportive but I'm scared to death. I also just want someone to talk to who can understand how I'm feeling about everything. Message me if you want to talk more about it!
