New To This Whole DealSo I am 19, in college and have been dating my Marine for a little over a month now. He just deployed for his first time to Afghan and he left about a week ago. We met on his leave home while I was still in our home town. 4 days before he left, my brother/his best friend/ marine and his girlfriend thought it would be a good idea for Steve and I to meet for the first time. Those 4 days were amazing and incredible. I stayed with him, met his family, spent almost every minute that I wasn't working i spent with him. So after those 4 days, he went back to his okinawa station, so I kinda got adjusted to not being able to talk to him or spend time with him. But we did get to message and skype every day. So now that he is deployed, I've been doing my best in keeping myself busy and trying not to think about how hard this next 8 months are going to be. My brother is also over there, but he comes back in march. I just thought it would be nice to have people to talk to that I know would understand what I'm going through. None of my friends, besides my brothers girlfriend really knows what I'm going through or really thinks that I'm being real smart about this. I don't want to leave him because I really truly think that this is the man that I wanna be with forever now. Just thought I could ask for some support!
