Hi Everyone!!

So I have been a member for a little while now but I have finally decided to follow my instincts and introduce myself.   My name is Alicia and I'm 22 and from GA.  I have been dating my marine for almost a year but we have known each other for almost 2 years.  He is currently stationed in Hawaii, he will be there for 3 yrs and I really miss him so much as you all can totally relate to.  I finally could not hold it in any longer and I had to find a support group with ladies who finally could understand what I was going through with the distance and everything else tht comes along with a military relationship.  So I really look forward to getting to know you all, sharing and receiving stories and words of support and wisdom! Ttyl!  : )

Hi Rosana! When is Brandon set to come back? That's great that you two will be back together! I totally agree that distance makes your relationship so much stronger it forces you two to communicate more which is always great. : )

Hi, My name is Rosana and Brandon is in Afghanistan but will be stationed at Camp Pendleton, CA...We are both from Cali :) Distance is hard but it makes your relationship stronger! Semper Fi

OMG!! Heck yea Lexi that is way closer. Good for you I know that you can probably hardly wait until he gets there...I know I'm hoping the next time my guy will get put a whole lot closer to me. I will totally take a 9 hour drive for that! : )

Hi Shelby! how are you? how long will David be gone? <br />

~Hi Kayla~ thx so much I'm sure I will be getting in contact bc my friends just don't understand what we go through with a long distance relationship...<br />
<br />
~Hi Sam~ Congratulations!! I love weddings! How's the planning going so far if you don't mind me asking? Oh yea and what colors? : )<br />
<br />
~Hi Elizabeth~ I agree the highlight of the day, week or whatever are those phone calls from him...yes it is all worth it bc I could never see myself with anyone else : )<br />
<br />
~Hi Erin~ How long will he be in Japan? Rocky was stationed in Japan for our entire first year of knowing each other and the time difference was a kicker but e-mails, letters and those awkwardly timed phone calls were great...lol<br />
<br />
~Hi Allison~ yea you never get accustomed to the long distance I guess...I had one of those weeks last week where I saw all of those happy couples together holding hands and all I wanted was the same thing right then...but we have those times when it get rough but we keep "marchin on" : ) <br />
<br />
~Hi Sarah~Thx. Wow I have not been through a deployment yet but I know it is going to happen sometime...I can only imagine how much you must be missing him and I know you are so doing a countdown until you see him again! : )<br />
<br />
~Hi Lexy~ That's awesome!! so will that be closer to you?

Hey!!! I'm Sarah and Paul is my marine. We havent been together all that long, almost 3 months now... He is currently in Iraq and will be until June or July. Missing him is super hard, I can entirely relate to that!! Welcome to the group!

Hey, I'm Allison. Kieth is currently at boot camp in san diego. He'll graduate in a month :] <br />
We've daated on and off for almost a year and a half now. The long distance thing does suck, and it's definately caused me to have my ups and downs with my view on the relationship, but in the end I realize how much I love him and wouldn't want to give him up. The distance just takes some getting use too. Welcome to the site :]
