New To The Army Girlfriend Thing

My boyfriend i have known since i was 4 years old. We have been bestfriends all of our life then we lost contact when we went to different schools and got new numbers, And we had re-met and now we are dating and before we started he told me that he was going into the Army. I have always seen myself dating an army man, because i have grown up with my family telling me that's who i was going to end up with. My boyfriend and his bestfriend went and signed up about a month ago, and they go to basic in October at a base in Georgia. He is only 16, but he leaves the day after he turns 17 for basic. I've been worrying every night just wondering what could happen to him, because when i read the papers that he was actually going it hit me. I'm trying to be strong about it for him, but my friend's don't understand. Like they do to a degree, but only our friends have went to the military, none of our boyfriends or girlfriends. :-/ I miss him already, all his family can talk about now is him going, and how everything is going to change, because everyday i'm at his house and he is at mine, there isn't a day that goes by that i don't see his parents and his sister and her kids, and he see's my family. He's going to be gone for Christmas which is an even bigger bummer. All of these post's on here have made me want to cry. I'm a proud soon to be army girlfriend, I just need someone to talk to about all of this.

I know how you feel. My boyfriend has been gone for almost two weeks now. The best advice i can give you is to cherish the time you get to spend together, those memories that you make while your with each other will help you get through being apart. Also keep in touch with your boyfriends family, they will help make it easier because you will be going trough the same thing. Dont depend on your friends to understand...i have been trying to get mine to understand for a while now and just gave up on that. There are great people on this website that you can talk to and who understand you. <br />
If you ever need someone to talk to you can message me. Stay Strong Girl! and the best of luck!
