Leaving Early.

I just found out today that he is leaving in November. It was January, now it's November. I wasn't ready for him to leave then, now he's going to be leaving now. I do not want him to go. When he told me that, my heart just broke. I love him, with all my heart. We're going to be getting married. I just, i've got so many feelings running through me right now. I'm proud of him, I really am. I'm so proud of him. I know it's going to be hard for him as well. We can't go a day without hearing one anthers voice or seeing each other let alone 13weeks. It's going to be so hard for me. I just love him so much. I just want to cry. I don't know, is this how your suppose to feel? I know he's just going to basic.. but still. I guess I'm going to have to get use to things like this. I've got to be strong for him. Strong for us.

I know exactly how you feel, and i am so sorry you have to go through this to, my fiance just left last sunday for the marines, we live in oklahoma and he went to san diego, its really hard for me to cause hes my best friend and we do everything together and to not have him here with me hurts really bad. But really all we can do is stay strong and be supportive for our men. in time if you keep your self busy, no the missing him isnt going to go away, but doing stuff will keep your mind off the crying for awhile. and being strong is all you can do, and dont let anyone tell you not to cry, or not to miss him, or itll be fine, he'll be back its just three months, but its three months without the love of your life, cause usually the people who say that, they have no idea how hard it is. But it really does take a strong woman to love a marine!

They're sending him to North Carolina I believe. :( I am going to try my hardest to keep myself busy. It's going to be so hard going through my day to day notions with out him. We do everything together. He's my everything. It's going to be strong, but I love him and I'm going to support him and be strong.

Usually, most recruits's date gets either pushed up or back. I'm sorry you're going through this but you have to be strong because this is only the beginning. Just be sure to write him tons of letters while he is away.

I will write him, I have to have some way of talking to him because If I don't i'll go crazy. I love him to much.

I know exactly what you're going through. My boyfriend graduated from Parris Island Marine bootcamp Dec. of last year, so today actually marks a year he has been in. Last year he left in September, when he was originally supposed to leave in Nov. Basically a spot opened up for his MOS and he took it once he could, and this all happened at once. He took it and then found out he'd leave 4 days later. It sucks either way, I know. But, be glad you still have 2 months with him :) And I can honestly say, the 13 weeks started out super slow, but then the days just started to blend in together, and before I knew it, I had him standing right next to me on his graduation day. Just keep yourself busy with ANYTHING. Pick up a new hobby. If you're going to school that's a plus because you won't have a choice but to be distracted. For me, watching movies helped because I was able to concentrate on the movie, and not him being away. He was constantly on my mind, but only him. Not the fact that he was gone for 13 weeks or the fact that time was creeping slowly, just him. You guys will be fine. Remember, it's ONLY bootcamp. My aunt told me that when I spoke to her while he was there, and it really is only bootcamp, it's just a short 13 weeks he's away. He's going to miss you just as much as you're going to miss him. Write him LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of letters. They LOVE getting those. I went through the same emotions like you are. The moment he told me he was leaving, I burst into tears, he and I both did lol. My stomach was in a million knots, I'm surprised I slept and I was crying at everything lol. Everything you're feeling is completely normal, so don't ever be ashamed of the way you're feeling. It's a big transition in our lives. Some people can hack it, and some people can't. Personally, if you guys can get through bootcamp, which I'm sure you both will be fine, you guys can get through anything. The communication is limitless once he's out. By limitless I mean you don't just have to send letters anymore. Any means of communication will be open. And any time you feel like you need to cry, let it out. You'll feel better afterwards :) Keep your head up :) You're going to be just fine <3 I'm here if you need anything..we all are!! :)

Thank you. :) I love him, &amp; I'm going to spend the rest of my life with him. I won't ever walk away from him. He's my everything. I plan on writing him lots and lots. Thank you for your support, all of you.

You're going to be juuuust fine :) It's rough at first but once you start to figure out how you can cope with him being gone, it gets a little easier. I feel the same way about my boyfriend. We've been together for 4 years and he's been in a year. One year down, four to go! Lol. And you're welcome :) Feel free to talk whenever!

Me &amp; him are planning on getting married. We've already been out looking at rings. :) I

:) Are you planning on getting married right after bootcamp or after all of his schooling is finished?

After bootcamp . .

Congratulations :) Better start planning! Lol
