Am I Crazy?

I met Zach February 28th this year and now I don't know what I'd do if I didn't speak to him every day. There are many people that probably think I'm absolutely crazy because of the age difference between us. I've always been really mature and to this day, guys my age could care less what girls think or what they want in life. I'm 19 and he is 26 and I love him like crazy. I just recently found out that next year he will be deployed to South Korea and I'm not quite sure what to think about it. I've never been in a relationship with someone in the army, marines, navy, etc and I'm pretty shaken up about the whole ordeal. Usually I'm the strong one among my friends and family, but I don't think they really know how to help me cope. Does anyone have any sort of uplifting words that could help?

Aw you have to be strong and follow your heart. I remember going through this with my boyfriend and it was devistating but I decided God wouldn't have out him in my life if I couldn't handle the lifestyle. You need to talk to him also and find out if you can do it. It's just going to require a lot of self questioning and reflection. Good luck and feel free to message me anytime!

Thank you very much. I get to see him next weekend and I'm so excited. I think I may have actually talked him in to meeting my parents. :) But we are going to have plenty time together to just talk about everything and hopefully things work out. I've always been told I'm a strong person. I mean, I was pregnant my junior year of high school and have taken care of my son alone since he was born. So, I'm a single mother, I work, and I'm enrolled in school. Being a single parent is hard enough but tackling everything that I have has made me a stronger and more patient person. I'm pretty confident in myself that I can do this. :)
