Want to Marry My Airman

I am a United States Air Force girlfriend. My airman and I have only been dating for about 10 months now but we are already planning to get married one day (hopefully in the not too distant future). I'm only 18 so most people think that I'm crazy and that I can't possibly know what true love is at such a young age. They are definately wrong. I KNOW that he is the one for me and that nothing could make me happier than to spend the rest of my life with him. He's been gone for about 6 months now. Boot camp was definately tough. I was a complete wreck when he left. There is nothing in the world that I find more painful than goodbyes (especially when it's someone I love). Once we finally got through boot camp, things got easier by the day and we grew even closer as a couple. It is tough that he is so far away but the communication has picked back up since he's been at tech school. I miss him so much but it's definately wonderful to be able to hear his voice. Because of our struggles, we've become so much stronger as individuals and as a couple. He was able to come home for Christmas exodus. He stayed with me for about 10 days. It was so nice to finally see him again. He expressed how greatful he was for everything that I had done for him. I had never been so happy as I was the moment I saw his smiling face running towards me in the airport with open arms. I was afraid that the time would make things awkward and that we wouldn't be able to just pick up where we had left off. I was completely wrong. It felt as though we had never been apart. If anything, we were even closer than we were before he left. It was definately hard to say goodbye again when it was time for him to leave. However, each goodbye means that there will be yet another time that I will be filled with happiness when he returns home to me. Whenever I miss him, I realize that I'm such a lucky girl to have someone so amazing to miss. Distance truly does make the heart grow fonder. I believe it firsthand. His first tour of duty will begin in the spring. He is going to be stationed in California. I'm so excited because I will be able to afford to go to college  there so that we can see each other on a regular basis. I can't wait to be by his side once again. This has been a tough experience but I have gained so much from it and I wouldn't change it for the world. I love him with all my heart and will stay strong for him however long it takes. I know that he is the one for me and I will always be here for him. He's my everything and I can't wait for the day that I can finally become his wife!

OMG my airman just left me too headed back. I had him for about 2 weeks. He proposed on New Year's Eve. I'm 19 and he's 18. But we graduated together and dated our Senior Year. I know exactly what you mean but we are gettin married pretty soon though because he's moving to another base. The good thing about this is the distance between two people will either serve as a relationship strengthener or a breaker. Thats up to you and him how it comes out. Take care.
