Missing Your Boyfriend Whose In the Military.

Missing your boyfriend whose in the military.


1. You wear old sweatpants and sweatshirts to bed.

2. You can watch whatever you want on TV without arguing with him first

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

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

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

6. You haven't shaved your legs in weeks.

7. The mailman knows you because you are always out waiting for him to come.

8. You start paying close attention in class when the words "military" or "iraq" are mentioned.

9. You suddenly have an obsession with anything military related.
10. You see someone wearing an army, navy, or usmc shirt and you get this overwhelming urge to talk to them.

11. 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.

12. You can't decide what to wear when you meet him at the airport because his flight comes in at a ridiculous hour in the morning and you want to look cute, but not too cute, because your cutest outfit you want to save for your first full day together.

13. Your first Christmas together is... apart.

14. You find yourself checking your e-mail every fifteen minutes.

15. You know all the time differences between where you are and Iraq, Ireland, Kuwait, Italy, Germany, Korea, and every state in the U.S.

16. The highlight of your day is getting a letter that was mailed a month ago.

17. And if you don't get a letter, the highlight of your day is writing him a letter that you know he will be able to read in a month.

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

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

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

21. You've exhausted every idea a brain could have of what to put in a box.

22. 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.
23. When the clock says 11:11, you find yourself wishing for the same thing every time: a call from your soldier.

24. You get excited when its only 5 months until you see your Soldier instead of 7!

25. 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 soldier no matter how far it is.

26. You don't know what teams are on top for football, basketball, etc.

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

28. You find yourself randomly crying from just looking at a picture of the two of you together.

29. You find yourself randomly crying and you sometimes have no idea why.
30. You stay on the internet for hours searching for anything and everything about the military.

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

32. You find yourself speaking in acronyms (that no one other than you and he would understand).

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

There was literally only ONE thing in here i couldn't relate to, and i still did kind of and it was the christmas one except replace christmas with anniversary. THIS IS SO TRUE.

My boyfriend just left yesterday morning for four months and I'm already struggling on how to deal with it. He made me promise to go visit his family and I plan to I just can't grasp the fact that he's really gone.

So true, laughing and crying at this. 7 months to go! :(

So true. I haven't gone through deployment and mad respect for those ladies and gents who are the other half of our marines. Mine is in a situation where we only get to talk weekends. I know its a lot more than some, but it still sucks. I wish there were cheaper flights.

Everything on there is so true my partner has been posted on the last afghan tour and has 6 months to go still cant stop crying

He's been gone for almost 3 months... He'll be back in June but this post also had me crying!! It's so relatable:( I'm glad I'm not alone feeling like this :(

ive just read this and cried, but for the first time in months it wasnt because im missing my soldier, but because i finally dont feel so alone!

i like the point about girls saying they miss thier bf's who live 2 hours away!

x stay strong girls xx

The worst is that mine is on base 2 hours away and I still can't see him!

My boy friend has been gone since December 2nd, 2013.. We didnt get to spend Christmas, new years, valentines day, our birthdays or anyhing together,, he doesnt know exactly when he will be back, which means i dont either.. Everyday i dont hear from him... i worry. everyrthing that was posted above.. is Very true. Thank you for sharing.

my boyfriend has been gone two days now and i have not stop crying ......i miss him so much ,dont know exactly when i will hear from him or see him.

So true. I've ALWAYS kept up with bodily maintenance. But since my boyfriend is so far away and we have months until meeting again, why bother? Au Natural!

Agreed!

My bf just left for the marines and its difficult thinking what if his not going to be here while i give birth im 2 months pregnant.

Totally life story. Love it cause its so true! Haha

It doesn't get easier but it is all worth it once they come home! My boyfriend gets home in 6 days and I can't believe how fast this past year apart has been,even though it sure didn't feel like it most of the time. Keep your chins up ladies! You'll be with your loves before you know it. :)

This is so true. I love it so much. (: <br />
My boyfriend has been gone for almost a year. Longest year of my life! I can't wait until he's home. <3

So true and I am totally smiling and nodding

Lol! yes :( i no longer keep in touch with my basketball xp and i do cry when i look at our pictures <3 bittersweet.

My boyfriend has just been deployed for the next 6 months. It is the first time since we got together 18 months ago. It is unbelievably hard not hearing from him but hearing other people doing the same as me makes me feel better and gives me the strength to know we will get through it. Thankyou<br />
<br />

MISS MY BOYFRIEND SO MUCH DOES IT EVER GET EASIER ! ?

i just cried hysterically reading all these true things. love and support to you girls and your men.

This is my life right now. I sometimes feel a lone and like no one else understands what I'm going through. Now I know there's a whole internet community that knows what I'm going through.

wow. thats my life right there. i feel so predictable right now. damn!

I nodded yes to every one of these, then I realized that all of you ladies did as well. Glad to know we aren't alone in this!

I'm new at the whole army girlfriend thing & boy this already feels like it's going to become my life routine !

Glad to know im not the only one =)

I realize every day apart is a day closer but its still hard. Im counting down the days. He's the love of my life & the only one im waiting for

Haha I definitely related to these!! xD How crazy!

perfect and something we can all agree on...thank you

this deffinatly sums up my life! i love it :)

omg this is describes me perfectly!!!

my boyfriend just left for bootcamp today and we've only been dating for four months nut we were pretty much attached at the hip im know this is just the beginning but i would really appreicate someone who can relate to talk to me bc im having a really hard time

This is so perfect! Really sums everythin up.<br />
P.S. Don't call him a soldier!

Lol...this is what i have to look forward to ; )

<3 so very true! love it!

i love this!!! :)

OMg When i saw this i was like wow....Most of the numbers from here are saying my life with my Marine<3 Boyfriend; & i just wanted to cryyy!!!<br />
ITs just TOOOOOOO CUTE!

all sooo true!!!!<br />
<br />
Just hoping that April they will station him here... Even if everyone tells me that it's almost impossible I keep hoping...

Wow. This is so sad. I'm so not looking forward for him to be going to basic. :(

THis is exactly what I go through every day!!!

Haha I love it! And this was also posted during my last deployment to0 and made me smile then also:)

Haha I love it! And this was also posted during my last deployment to0 and made me smile then also:)

this is my life, just saying.

yep you pretty much summed it up =)

hahaha after three yous, this consecutively sums up my life with my marine :]

wow. i was reading this and every one of these is true. its crazy.

i hate it because it is so true. i haven't seen my marine for more than a year now. i have realized alot of things that seemed so important don't matter at all to me anymore. i just want him in my arms again.

wow this so true its kinda ridiculous how true it is....but i love it!!!

this is so great and i was nodding and smiling the whole time i read it!!!!

omg!!! thats funny because its so true!

I just read this and I pretty much relate to all of them, I'm just thinking wow, this knows me so well :)

My husband and I are both military. Right now I'm stationed in Spain and he's already transfered to California and we don't know when I'll transfer out to him, he might even deploy to the middle east before I get there, so it might be a year until I see him. I sleep in his sweat shirt every night. I sleep on my couch because the bed is just too big for me now. But, you know what? It's all totally worth it. People say military relationships/marriages don't work. Don't believe it. I married my best friend and even though he's far away, we're making it work. It's just like any relationship. Sometimes you make sacrifices and I'd sacrifice anything just to see my hubby's goofy, little boy grin and make sure it never leaves his face.

I was laughing this whole time. I relate to most of these, if not all. =)

totally describes how i feel! my boyfriend just left for navy SEAL bootcamp:/

I wear my man's tags all the time on the outside of my shirt or whatever I am wearing... Dont let any of these people tell you that! I dont have to have them on to remember but by wearing them it's a constent reminder that he is there even if it's not phyically!

Soooo true! This made me cry! I miss him so much! 7 more months!

i use to wear my boyfriends dog tags all the time, until people started making fun of me. Lack of respect for our soldier, obviously. Now i just wear them under sweatshirts and t-shirts where people can't see them.

you wear his old dog tags where ever you go.. because there apart of him

YEP! definately my life story right here :)

soo true! <3 i was nodding the whole time

ha ha I totally nodded and laughed!

Omqqq, thiss iss sO truee x3 ! <br />
My Marinee Juss Left tO Japan for 1yr :(<br />
ii Misshimm sO Muchh!!

thanks for that....good to feel like you're not alone. Everything we go through to keep our relationships going strong when our husbands and boyfriends spend so much time away from us...its hard, really hard, even harder than you think it will be. Being away from the one you love is the toughest job in the world. Good thing he is worth the anxiety and the wait. I love my marine!

thats exactly how it works... its amazing how you all can hit the nail right on the head... and my mom is standing here like omg thats so you... lol do u have stalkers.. im like no i have a soldier... and so do they.... lol

Omg everything of that was so true!lol

hahaha sooo true! i didnt know others did 8, 19, 22, and 30 too! haha that makes me feel so much better.
