Losing Them All...

So, I met my marine boyfriend on an online chat site. We would get online every morning, and talk until late at night. Eventually we stopped chatting and started texting, which we do constantly. I fell in love with him, but I was afraid to tell him, and he was in the same position (but of course I didn't know it). I called my best friend to ask him for advice, since he's had experience with long distance, military relationships. He told me I was doomed to fail, and that because he's 20, that he's a MAN and therefore too good to be talking to a 16 year old little girl like me. My parents are no more supportive of my decision to be with Cody.. I just don't understand it. The only ones supporting us, is us. I mean.. I understand how hard this life is... I'm living it. I won't see him for 2 years. Period. But, I accept that. I love this man, I choose this life. I will always love him, no matter what, I just wish I had someone here for me at home while he's away.

Hello, I'm also in the same situation here. Well, not all the same but yes, I also love a guy living really far away and because of our distance and culture, we may not be able to be together. My parents also don't support us...we're still trying to work this out.<br />
I wish the best for both of you.

And the same for you.. Keep me up on how it's going?

My relationship?

Yes. I know I'm not the only one who needs support, so why shouldn't I try to support others, while I try to find others to support me. Sorry if this is worded a little weird, but.. I hope you get the gist of it. I want to help others, just as much as I'd like others to help me.

Thank you so much. Well....we're ok. I told him about my parents opinion about internet love and he said he'll wait. We're still students so I told him to concentrate on his study, so do I, so one day we can finally meet in person (we're living in different countries.). School year is getting close again so it's a bit heart breaking. How about you?

Hi, sorry it's been so long.. I've been dealing with a situation and haven't been online. It's not going well with us.. My boyfriend got shot, about a week ago. He lost a lot of blood, and somewhere in the mix there was blunt force trauma involved as well. He has extensive memory loss, to the point that he has no idea who I am. I feel like I'm living in "The Vow".. I love him with all my heart, and from what he said, and everything he did, he loved me, but now, he doesn't even remember my name. I have to reintroduce myself to the one person who, somewhere in there, knows me better than I know myself.. I just dunno what to do.. :'(

Hey....I know this is hard for you but please, don't give up. Have you visited him yet?
This may not be a good place to discuss this. I'll send you my email address so we can talk more about this k?
