How You Know You're A Marines' Girlfriend <3

1.You get up in the middle of the night to check your e-mail.


2.You sleep with your cell phone incase he calls in the middle of the night.


3.You love watching cute love movies because it reminds you of all the cute things he does and will do when he's home.


4.You haven't shaved your legs in weeks, because there's no point.


5. You start paying close attention everywhere when the words "military" or "Japan" are mentioned.


6. You suddenly have an obsession with anything military related.


7.You see someone wearing an army, navy, or usmc shirt and you get this overwhelming urge to talk to them.


8.You make friends with strangers online just because they are in the same situation as you and are the only ones that can truly understand what you are going through.


9.You can't decide what to wear when you meet him on base because you're not gonna be alone and you want to look cute, but not too cute, because your cutest outfit you want to save for your first full day together, and you think about this months before you even see him.


10.You find yourself checking your e-mail every fifteen minutes, or in my case every five.


11.You realize that HOMECOMING is so much more than a football game.


12.You want to hit any happy couple you see together.


13.You get excited about "unknown" phone numbers calling you.


14.You've exhausted every idea a brain could have of what to put in a box. (I'm sending you one soon but shhh its supposed to be a surprise)


15.You see a "support our troops" sticker on a car when you are stuck in traffic and you find yourself guessing about who they know that is deployed and thinking about their entire life story.


16.When the clock says 11:11, you find yourself wishing for the same thing every time: a call from your warrior. 


17.You get excited when its only 4 months until you see your warrior instead of 6.


18.You can't stand girls that talk about missing their boyfriends who live a few hours away. You just want to yell "drive and go see them them" because if you had the chance, you would jump on the first plane to go see your warrior no matter how far it is.


19.You wouldn't dream of walking out of the house without the cell phone and every number you have is forwarded to that cell.


20. You never turn your phone off or put it on silent.


21.You find yourself randomly crying from just looking at a picture of him.


22.You find yourself randomly crying and you sometimes have no idea why.


23.You stay on the internet for hours searching for anything and everything about the military.


24. You talk to your friends about him so much that they know his full name, birthday and even his favorite color.


25. Hearing his voice even for only a min, makes your entire day.


26.You are reading this and smiling and nodding because you know it's so true.

I am a Marines girlfriend....Sure it's a hard life, full of loneliness and wondering if your marine is okay. But it's seriously the best experience I've ever had to go through, I'm insanely in love with my Marine and I fall in love with him more each day he's gone. Our relationship, other then most of you ladies is the strongest I've ever seen in my generation. Love is fading in our country, it's full of divorcé and unfaithfulness. I seriously think if everyone in the world had to go through what we do, there would be no divorcés. I can't imagine going through all of this missing, and being lonely for Frank (my Marine) and us not working out. I know I'm going to be with him forever someday we're going to get married and I'm going to have his babies someday far far away because we're not ready for all that lol. If I didn't know that coming into this I would love him forever I wouldn't be doing this, but being so far away and sad 25% of the time is a risk I'm willing to deal with because he is so unbelievably worth it. I have always had so many trust issues but since the first day I met Frank I've trusted him he destroyed my huge unbreakable (so I thought) wall in an instant. No amount of water could ever come between our love, because we have each others hearts with us...Never willing to give them back. Only 4 months and 8 more days. <3

Thank you for that it really helped today

This is so perfect. <3

I love this so much! My phone is with me everywhere I go. Just in case. :)

I love this! I did have a smile and was agreeing with each one I read. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that does some of these things, although I do them all. Like, I'm psycho about checking my email so checking it every 5 minutes I understand lol. Thanks for sharing this with us! :)

Of course :), and I really do sleep with my phone in my hands like a teddy bear soooo you we're all a little psycho with some things ;)

love it!!
