Hello Everyone :]

First I want to start off by saying hello. I'm a proud girlfriend of my Marine. He just left for Cuba and he barley can talk. He told me that I need to be strong for him. I dont know how to do that. I try to keep busy as possible but I can't really talk to my friends about this because they won't understand. It's the first time in our relationship where he's actually gone and cant speak. I know that I need to prepare myself and that it'll just take time. But is they're any advise that you guys have to have to time to by? I guess I don't know how not to be so soft I guess with him. Thank you so much

I'm going to be in long distance with my man for another year and something that has worked for me when I haven't been able to talk to him for weeks at a time is that whenever I start to miss him a lot, I sit down and write him a letter about everything that I would normally want to tell him if he was here. It's obviously not the same as talking to him since it's basically a one way conversation, but it still seems to help a bit. Try to keep busy and surround yourself with positive people. Do you know how long he's supposed to be gone for? If you ever need to talk just message me!
