Don't Know How To Say Goodbye

Me and my boyfriend have been together for 4 years on August 23. He's leaving sept 24 and I try to spend every possible minute with him. Idk how I'm going to handle him leaving. He's my best friend and idk who I'm gonna randomly call when I'm bored or just wanna hear his voice for 3 months. I'm just wondering if it's as hard as I think it's going to be? :/

I understand how you feel. My boyfriend of 3 years just left 3 weeks ago. We had lived together for the past 2 years. It's not easy. But it's gotten so much better! The first week dragged and the first few days were miserable, I'm not going to like. But the second week wasn't that bad and this last week flew by. The only time I cry now is when I get his letters. Oh, and once you get those letters it will make it so much easier! And you've got us to talk to! Just remind youself that when he is leaving that you will see him again, and he is going off to better his life. So even though it's sad he is gone, in the long run this will make his and your life better!

oo i no. im trying to tell my self that now. i couldnt be more proud of him.

My boyfriend left for bootcamp 2 weeks ago. Honestly goodbye is probably going to be the hardest thing you will ever do, it was so hard and I cried a lot but for me I stopped crying like an hour or 2 after he left and I called one of my friends and hung out with her and actually felt ok. The whole first week was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be. It didn't get really hard until this last week. I think it took me awhile to realize that he really wasn't coming back for awhile. But the best thing for me is talking about it. I talk to my friends about him all the time but talking to people that know what its like helps the most. But definitely just keep busy and try to set goals for yourself to finish before he gets back. I am so proud of my boyfriend and I want him to be proud of me when he gets back.

I'm just really nervouse cause I'm alwaysss with him now. I just finally got use to seeing him all the time. I can do the distance thing cause we live an hour away from each other now and i use to only see him once a week but now I see him all the time. And not being able to just call him and hear his voice is gonna suck.

Yeah that worst part was having something to say to him and not being able to call or text him... and waking up alone every morning was the worst. But now I've finally gotten myself into a routine and keep busy and that helps. I also keep in touch with his family and that makes things way better.

yea im hoping school and work will keep me destracted

It is hard, but I've found that its actually not as bad as I thought it would be, the first week was really bad, but the past two weeks have actually been a lot easier, sure I still miss him but I know we'll be together again soon!

Thank you:) I will
