New To This...

I'm not really good with forums... nor am I really good at talking about things that bug me with complete strangers... I read through some posts and they are so touching. I haven't been with my boyfriend for very long but I can feel that it's something real. He's obviously a Marine and we basically started our relationship long distance. I miss him like crazy. It's only two months until I see him again and that's for the formal ball. It seems so irrational to be in love with someone that I haven't even known for that long but it's definitely something that cannot be explained. He's in training right now and he graduates in December. He told me that he is on a team to be deployed but doesn't know when. I don't even know how to react. I feel like I'm so lost to this whole institution. I'm scared of everything for the first time in my life. But at the same time I am so incredibly enamored with this man. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him. We are fortunate to have texting, calling, and Skype. I am just so nervous for the day he tells me we can't talk everyday. How do you do it? If I don't talk to him for a day, I feel like I haven't talked to him in a week. My parents also don't understand at all. Sometimes I feel like it will never work. Other days I think it will. Am I thinking too far in advance? Am I being a silly love-stricken girl? Is it possible to be this in love with someone so far away so quickly??

Hey there is no time limit on love seriously. I'm crazy in love with my marine and that was from the start of our relationship. He is deployed now and I still love him. So yes anything is possible you may hear people say things like "oh you haven't been together long you don't know if you love him" But a guy I work with met his wife married her two weeks after to meeting her and they've been married 30 years. Loves kind of tricky each kind of falling is different for each person but when you know you know. I know right now for me I email and write my bf when I miss him it makes it feel like I am talking to him even if its not direct. As long as you both are dedicated anything can work :-)

Thank you so much for the encouragement. Sometimes it's so hard but I wanna make it work so badly. I can feel it in my bones.

I'm sure you will be fine just don't give up :-)
