I just missed a call from my bf in bootcamp... I always have my phone on me but I left for dinner and missed it by 5 minutes. I take it that I can't call back? I havent had a letter in a month, and only one call about paperwork, but I'm still writing

Military Girlfriend Answer:

Unfortunately you won’t be able to call him back. He only gets a set time to call and if you were to call now he won’t be able to receive it. That’s okay though, this call means that he should be able to call again soon and that is something positive to look forward to :)

There are many times that I have thought to myself “oh he’s the one!” or “I think I can see myself waiting for this guy”, and it’s difficult to pick out one single moment, but I’ll share one of my most favorite stories about him. Before my SO left to bootcamp, we spent so much time together doing different things and trying to make the most of our short amount of time. The first weekend of every month, our hometown has a small art festival that features musicians, local food vendors, and local artists, The first time we went together, we went to a small art gallery that was filled with festival-goers. We observed all the pieces together, making observations about the artists’ work and what we liked and disliked. He found one piece of artwork that he found particularly interesting, and he couldn’t take his eyes off it. It was a really simple picture of a child looking back at his dog, they were in a white space. I kept walking and looking on at what else was on exhibit, but I swear, he stood there for about 5 minutes just captivated by this piece of artwork. When I came back to him, I realized just how amazed he was as he stood studying and thinking about this painting. It was in those moments that I began to fall for his captivation and wonder in his eye. That’s always something that I’ve liked about him. He always finds something interesting, finds something wonderful about little seemingly insignificant things. That’s how I know there’s something special about him. And it was in that art gallery that I started to truly realize that.

the first instance was the first time i THOUGHT he was the one, September is always a rough month for me because my brother who passed away’s birthday is this month, he knew how upset I got and I wasn’t talking to him much and he went to my house with two of his and my best friends they all gave me hugs and made me feel less alone, all because he wanted a hug…..I knew he was the one the day he was leaving truly hit me. I was in school laughing with my friends and someone said how they couldn’t believe it was October already and I broke down in tears and started sobbing because that meant I had less then 1 month with him. I was used to people leaving me my whole life… My mom left me when i was 14ish and I haven’t seen her since. My dad took me in out of pity and my SO promised me over and over he wouldn’t leave and when he had to for the army he’d always come back because he knew about my abandonment issues… The few days before he left for basic my heart was snapping but I didn’t know how crazy it would be until he did. His mom gave me his favorite blanket so I went home with it and cried because it smelled like him…. i realized no matter who in my life left me it never hurt that badly before, so what we have must be special. I didn’t want to be with anyone else ever, I would wait no matter how long I had to because he completed me and was the only person to ever just genuinely make me happy. He made me feel so much comfort and was the only person who ever told me I deserve something in life. 
I dunno It’s not the cutest story but it’s ours…

It was raining harshly outside the day my SO and I decided we wanted to stay together. We were curled up on my bed watching a science documentary of my choosing. During one of the commercials, somehow I began cracking jokes and really lame puns from an earlier conversation. He stared at me and just listened the whole time. He doesn’t talk much and he’s super serious but he does love to listen. I felt so relaxed with him, I just kept talking and smiling. At one point he interrupted me, telling me he wanted to say something important, so I laughed and told him okay and stopped talking. He gave me such a solemn but hidden nervous expression and told me he loved me, saying he wanted to be with me even when he left for the army. He’s active for the army and I knew long before when we first began dating he told me how it might be hard for us. So, I just stared at him, seeing all the love he had for me and not to sound too cheesy but in that moment everything felt right. I knew he’d be worth the wait.

I finally got back from seeing my boyfriend gradute from BCT at Fort Sill. It was such an amazing experience. Seeing him again was well worth the wait. We both got really lucky because his AIT is only an hour and a half away from where I live which means I can visit him when he is not busy and has on base and off base passes!! And eventually he'll get leave and just knowing I dont have to get onto a plane to see him is such a relief.

Military Girlfriend Answer:

That’s so great :) I’m so glad that things are working out for you!

I knew my boyfriend was the one, funny enough, when he was telling me about his enlisting in the Navy. We started getting close a month after he swore in for DEP. I think he asked me what I wanted to do after college, and of course that led into him talking about going into the Navy after his high school graduation (he’s a year below me). He just started telling about how he wanted to be a corpsman because he wanted to help people and save the lives of those who are risking them for us. He said that it was more something he wanted to do for himself, not something he felt obligated to do, or that he had to kill all the bad guys. He also mentioned how his family hated his decision, but that he didn’t care because it had been in his heart for so long and he knew it was what he wanted to do. He talked about how he was scared, and that he’s afraid that he would change a lot as a person into a cold and detached kind of guy, but he knows this is what he’s meant to do in life. So I told him right then and there how much I respected him. As the tree hugging, flower power peace hippie that I was in my head, I respected him so much for how noble he was, for the kind of motivation he had and why he had it. He replied about how sweet I was and how that it really meant a lot to him to hear. At that moment, I knew I wanted him to stay in my life, and thinking about the risks he could face as a Navy corpsman in with the Marines, which is what he wants to end up as, made me feel sick. I couldn’t stand thinking of anything bad happening to him. I knew he was someone special that day. And I never wanted to lose him. Luckily, he realized that. So two weeks later, we had our first date, he kissed me afterward, and now here we are today, 8 months later. He graduates boot camp on October 10th and I am the proudest I’ve ever been of anyone. :)

scrachelx3 asked:

I met my SO through a mutual friend but didn't really start talking until around a half a year later when he was over in Korea. We started talking and soon enough it turned to talking every day and he was supposed to have leave last October but he said he wouldn't make it back until Christmas. So we continued to skype and he met my mom through that (she had cancer and she was in hospice care at my house) and he us that he was sending me a package, so one day I was out for coffee and my mom(Pt 1)

Military Girlfriend Answer:

Continuation:

called me and told me to come home b/c my package arrived. So I rushed home and went in to the living room where my mom and a few other people were and there my SO was, sitting next to my mom. I was so surprised and cried a little from being so happy and we went to another room and sat and talked for a minute and that’s when we first kissed. But from that moment, I knew I could wait through whatever for him because it takes a lot to walk Into someone’s home where you don’t know anyone.

antis0ciall asked:

Omg I love telling stories about my bf and I lol. My boyfriend is in boot camp right now and it's been a month and almost two weeks already. Our first kiss wasn't anything grand but it was special. So the day before it actually happened, I told him I had feelings for him and his response was "aw :)" I was like ... Oh okay like I felt that he didn't feel the same so I just changed the subject. The next day I asked my friend what I should do and she said I should just ask him straight up if (cont)

Military Girlfriend Answer:

Continuation:

We should date or not because I didn’t want I waste anyone’s time. So one day he drove me to church in his jeep and I was so nervous. When we got there I just said “so what do you want to do? Like do you want to do this whole dating thing or not because I don’t want to waste my time or yours so..” And he was so confused lol he didn’t know what to say. I was just like “.. Yes or no..” And he said yes. Then I was like ” uh okay. Thanks” and as I opened the door he stopped me and said “I love you”

And then we kissed and we’ve been together ever since :) almost a year already !

That moment…

From the beginning of our relationship Ryan and I knew we would be long distance. I go to school in Hawaii and he goes to school in Cali. This fact never stopped us from falling in love. So there were a few moments when I knew he was worth the wait but the one that sticks out is when we were sitting on his couch and he didn’t even look away from the tv and asked “Are we at the point in our relationship where its okay to fart in front of each other?” At first I wanted to laugh but I held it in and said “Umm ya I don’t care if you do. ” And he did, I started to laugh and to this day I laugh out loud just thinking about it. For some reason this moment is one of my favorites and reassured me that I want him to be there waiting for me when I get off the airplane. 

Tuesday Topic!

So I was thinking and today we need a positive topic to get things moving in a better direction after last night. Yes hate comes and we are all tired of it but we need to move on for now :)

A while back we did first kiss stories and they were so great I was thinking maybe doing something similar like the first time you two knew that they were worth the wait/the one :) Submit your stories to share with everyone!
