My Story

Hello ladies my name is Andrea., I am new to this site but hopefully i will get the hang of it. I am pleased to know that their is a place where you can talk to people who are going through the same things you are. I am 18 and my boyfriend is 18 too, our bday is on the same day;D I met him in high school and we have been inseparable since then. Well until today, becasue he left for bootcamp in San Diego. I know this was going to happen sooner or later because i have known he wanted to be a marine since freshmen year but when he told me last friday that he was leaving today sunday it hit me like a train. They kept changing his date and it was a surprised when he told me. It has only been a couple of hours but i already miss him. I know its only going to get harder in the coming weeks but like they say pain is weakness leaving the body, and i need to stay strong for him. I was devastated friday afternoon my face hurt from all  the tears and i did not know if i was going to make it to work the next day. I can not describe the kind of person he is becuase their are no words to describe him., i can see his love towards me through his eyes and i know that if he saw how emotional i was it would only hurt him more. I am a very sensative and emotional girl i cry for everything and i get hurt easily, but for the first day in my life i learned to stay strong. As i said good bye to him today i smiled and was happy even though my heart was in pain seeing him go. He will not see me weak because it will make him weak and i want him strong and happy because he is finally full filling his dream of becoming a Marine; and his dreams are mine too. I know it is only going to be 3 months and that i will see him for 10 days and i cant wait:D So for now all i can do is countinue with my life, my school and work., and wait anxiously for an address to write. I have a long way to go, but with the love that exists between us we are going to make it. This is not the end but the beginning, after all our men are the strongest branch from the militaty and we have to be by their side stronger than ever. SEMPER FIDELIS FOREVER!
