Army girlfriend

I really do think of you at 2pm when I’m busy running errands. I think of you as soon as I wake up. Because I’m already wishing for you. I think of you at 8pm when I’m off at a dinner or a movie with my family. I think of you at 1am when all I can think of is how you smell. Thinking about how I love your laugh, and how I wish with everything I am that we were in the same bed kissing goodnight.
“I wish you were here. But you’re not you’re there, and there doesn’t know how lucky it is.”

Well-intentioned questions:

“When will he get leave next?”

“Where will he be stationed next?”

“Will he be able to come back for my wedding/Christmas/birthdays/holidays/anniversary?”

“When will you get to see each other again?”

Your boyfriend belongs to you, mine belongs to the military.
You complain you haven’t seen him in a few hours, I will go months on end without seeing him.
You haven’t heard from him in a couple hours, I will go weeks without hearing from him.
You get mad and ignore his calls, I would do anything for just 5 minutes.
You take him for granted, I don’t.

Want me to tell you the truth about Long Distance

The truth is that, I say I hate it sometimes, when in reality I hate it all the time (constantly)…

I hate it the most when I’m doing things I know he(she) would enjoy. I hate it when I want to feel a little extra loved. I hate it when there are things going on but we can’t physically be there for each other. Or the times when I’m sitting on my bed alone and I just wonder how different it would be if we were together. I hate distance, I hate missing the one I love. Honestly I think there is always a time that I hate it. (except when I get to talk to him(her) or I when I know the time is getting super short like days or weeks)

The truth about long distance is that it’s hard. It will always be hard (yes there are ways that you can deal with it but it doesn’t make it easy, just a little more bearable.) People will always have something negative to say (yup there is always that person), you’ll always want the person you love a little closer or there with you. They never leave you’re mind that’s for sure. The truth is that you’ll always have something that reminds you of them with you, as a way of having them there. You won’t always find someone that will understand what your going through (but that’s ok there’s always the LDR community or your other half trust me the know what you’re feeling). You’ll feel that long distance hits you hard on somedays, harder than usual. Tears: happy or sad, oh trust me they exist in long distance.

Now in all honestly the truth about long distance, the one that isn’t like anything els I said. I’ll tell you what the truth about long distance is; that all the love that I have for THE ONE is what keeps me going with this long distance. The way that I feel when I’m with him (her), all the happy tears and all the smiles that he puts on my face are what keep me going. It’s the love that keeps a long distance relationship strong. Yes of course there are other things but, if you don’t have love as a base you can’t have the other things that make LDRs strong.


If your reading this you may be able to relate or you’re probably in an LDR (maybe not). But I want you to know that whether you’re waiting on him or her all the negative things we hate about LD it will never beat the LOVE that we have for them. Continue to stay strong and know your not alone, they miss you and need you too.

I want you when I feel like the world is against me.
I want you when I’m the happiest.
I want you when I wake up. When I go to sleep.
I want you when it’s raining.
I want you when the sun is burning my skin.
I want you when the leaves start to fall. And when the flowers start to grow.
I want you today and tomorrow and everyday after that.

…a relationship is two people. Not two people and everyone who has an opinion.

God Bless this woman. It can’t be said any better then that.

I can’t stop thinking about you. All our hopes and dreams. Can’t wait to wake up to your handsome face. To kiss you as we dance in our kitchen. Or in between helping our little ones with their homework. I love you so much its ridiculous sometimes.
