The Classic Example Of A Lurker.

From time to time, I've come by and lurked just a teensy bit! Especially at times when my situation becomes especially unbearable for me, it helps a lot to read that others are in the same situation as myself.

Well, let me introduce myself :) My name is Michelle and I'm a 17 year old junior in high school and the love of my life is my savior. He's helped me to have respect for truth, God and the feelings of others. He knows everything about me -- knows when I'm lying, even if it's to myself. He's my best friend. I never expected I'd be in high school with a ring on my finger, but I'm proud to say that I am. My marine is my whole world. I thought at first that maybe no one would understand, that maybe they don't get that he's matured so much more than the average 19-year-old. But then I found this website and I realized that maybe I'm not alone! :) 

We've been together for nine months and I've seen him a total of nine days. It's been hard sometimes, but he's great at making me feel better since he knows me well enough to know exactly what I need. I found out just a few days ago that he'll be moving! He'll be stationed at Camp Pendelton and I'm incredibly excited :D He'll be only an hour and nine minutes away (yes, I mapquested!). This will be a great opportunity for us. Now I'll see him every weekend, not a weekend every few months. 

I'm really excited to begin to get to know as many of you as I possibly can! I'll be getting married next summer, and to be honest, I'll be entirely alone when I go to live with him. I'd love to get a chance to find people at the same base, as well as some pen pals who share the same situations. I always feel so out of loop at school -- I can't hang out with the single girls and I can't be with the couples either. It makes me feel left out a lot of the times and I remember a time when I cried two weeks straight because someone jokingly told me I couldn't hang out with them because they were single and special. -_-

I'm a crybaby, an aspiring author, half indian and half arab and very much in love with my marine :)

Aww thanks so much for the encouragement you too! :D It's really nice to meet you both. <br />
I guess my fiance was right, lol. When I told him about this website, he told me to join so I wouldn't feel so alone all the time. <br />
But don't worry, I'm not usually all that cranky :) I cope pretty well. <br />
<br />
I'll message you both sometime! (:

I wan engaged at 17 as a senior in high school! I graduated in 09 and am 18 now :) My fiance' Chris and I were together for less than a year before he proposed to me when he got back from Iraq. We had seen each other a total of MAYBE 20 days or less. Don't let anyone ever tell you it wont work out just because of your age. Don't let anyone ever get you down. they're secretly jealous because they're still searching for the love of their lives (whom they might never find) and you've already found yours. I STILL get crap and it's been almost a year since we got engaged. I always get the "aren't you a little young?" "why the rush?" "my parents got married young and divorced 3 years later." crap from people. Don't listen to them, stay true to who you are, and to what you feel/ think. You know what's best for you. I wish you all the luck in the world! <br />
