I'm Getting Good At Being Alone, Lol

   Well, I got married to a wonderful Marine in January. Moved away to be with him. I left my family and all I've ever known. I'm 26 years old and this is the farthest I've been away from my family. It's been really hard. In march he was deployed. Once again left alone. I have two children but it is nice to have someone around who is older then 10. They are great to talk to but it sticks mainly to cartoons, bikes, and boyfriends or girlfriends, lol. They are 8 and 10. I didn't think him leaving was going to be this hard. I never knew I could miss someone this bad. We've been together for a year this July 4th. I've always been a hard ***. Never let anyone get close to me. I've been married once before and that taught me really quick that men were hard to deal with. Until I met Derek. Now I can't live without him. I didn't plan on this, I really didn't plan on caring enough to marry him. I didn't think I could miss him. That went out the window. I just can't wait until he gets home.

Wow... Could our stories be any more alike? I hear you... And i feel for you too.

I know that it may not seem like it but I know how you feel. My bf joined the marine corps last january and i can't stand to be with out him. We've been together for a year as well and it's the hardest thing i've ever had to deal with.

i have a couple of friends who are dating military men...congratulations on your strength...i guess we can never have it all, and i dont think i could choose between having someone to miss and not :P at least you know hes coming back : ) cheers, kf :)

Yes-Wait for him. A soldier depends on the love he gets from his family. I hope you grow old together. I appreciate your sacrifice.

No matter what I write it doesn't sound right - but thank you for waiting for your soldier - thank-you for supporting him while he is deployed - it means the world to him right now.
