My Military BoyfriendBy Corian   1/09/2009
My boyfriend and I first met 7 years ago it was the summer between 5th and 6th grade for me and we had written letters to each other as kids and then as the years went by somehow lost contact for about 4 years. I tried everything I could think of to find him.... I even searched MySpace a couple times a month for about 3 years and finally gave up when my search results came up as "0" every time. During this time I realized how much I missed him and eventually it turned into love. So about a year later (July 2008) I had gotten online to check my messages and had a friend request and it was from him. I was never happier to get back in contact. He has recently joined the Army and is currently in New York. We've finally came out about our feelings for each other and it's an AWESOME feeling to know that he's just as crazy about me as I am for him. He is doing training to get deployed to Afghanistan in November :( so I haven't been able to talk to him a lot lately but he texts me these cute messages telling me about his day and that he's thinking about me and loves me and always asks to make sure how my day has been.
This site has a lot of really GREAT ideas and I'm glad my friend told me about it. To every girl/guy who has their one and only in military.... hold strong and never feel like your alone because there are more of us out here going through the same thing. Very few people will ever have to experience the feeling of being a military wife/husband and having to constantly wonder what's going on and whether they are actually safe... but having them home and in your arms is an unbeatable feeling. The best advice I was given that I would like to share is that you have to always stay positive no matter how hard it is. You'll eventually figure out things that occupy you whether it's reading, writing letters, being around friends/family, journaling, or just sleeping... it's your way of coping and there is nothing wrong with it.
GOD BLESS OUR U.S. TROOPS WHO ARE FIGHTING FOR OUR FREEDOM RIGHT NOW AND THOSE WHO WILL IN THE YEARS TO COME. YOU ARE TRUE HEROES AND WITHOUT YOU WE WOULD BE NOTHING. <3
