Anonymous said: My girlfriend is shipping out to boot camp (Marines) in a month and I'm terrified that she will getting treated different because she is in a same-sex relationship with me. Is that a justifiable fear???

I totally understand why you would be nervous of her being treated differently. The whole situation is rather nerve-wrecking. I do know a few people in same-sex relationships that went through boot camp, and i haven’t heard of any bad stories or anyone being treated differently. I have a few friends who have been in for awhile now and they don’t get treated differently either! I think she will do great and be fine! Both of you stay strong!!

Confession #970: Seeing him this past week for the first time was the best thing in the world. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him when he gets out. Then the next thing i knew we were saying goodbye. Eight months is a long time but I didn’t mean to cry as much as i did i knew it was selfish and it hurt him. Have you ever seen a Marine cry? Thats a sight that will rip your heart out! Now he’s gone.

Anonymous said: I'm having a hard time right now with my navy bf. We've never really fought and relationship wise are we are great, he's my first love, I miss him lots and am 100% supportive of his decision. Recently a lot has happened in my life with family that has taken a turn for the worse and I need advise. I haven't told him what happened yet because I don't want to add more stress on him, and I know he's in hell week. I'm not sure what to do.. i need support too but feel like I can't complain to him..

I’m not sure if this is a question or a confession. but if it is a confession just message me back and I’ll make it for you! I’m really sorry about everything going on with your family. I understand that you don’t want to add more stress on him since he is in hell week. Maybe you can hold off until things have settled down for him a little and THEN update him on whats going on, let him know you didnt tell him right away because you wanted him to be focused on his job. You are right, you do need support, and letting him know whats going on is NOT complaining, sometimes you need someone to talk to, and thats completely 100% okay!

Anonymous said: My boyfriend wants to be in Marines and I have barely any knowledge about it. I don't ever know where to look because I don't know what is reliable and I don't know what I'm looking for. Whenever I ask someone straight up about it, I feel like an idiot and people look at me like I'm stupid. I want to be more educated about the Marines, but I'm tired of looking stupid. Can you please help me find somewhere I can look that gives me helpful information that I can actually understand.

Hello! I totally understand where you’re coming from, but don’t worry. I’ve been with Ian for almost three years and there are still PLENTY of things that I don’t know or understand about his job. I’m ALWAYS asking Ian different things, even if they sound stupid. Lucky for us gals, if you’re on tumblr, you can easy head over to some blogs and ask anonymously! I will link some great tumblrs that have awesome information to help.

I hope I helped you out!!

Anonymous said: My boyfriend, a marine, is stationed over in Okinawa. I am really struggling trying to find out how to deal with a situation that just came into the light. Anyway (the story): a few months back my boyfriend had gone to a Japanese massage parlor, he ended up getting a hand job with a massage for 20$ more. Apparently a lot of the other marines do this ass well. He finally told me less than a week ago about this while he was drunk. I'm struggling to find a way to deal with this.

oh wow.. Thats a lot to deal with. I’m very sorry that you’re going through this. Well, I would confront him (if you haven’t already) I’d try to keep my cool, although… I can understand how hard that would be. I would lay the line on the ground and tell him that he CAN NOT do that. you are married, you have vowes, a promised life together. That is cheating, whether he wants to believe it or not… I would ask of him that he doesn’t go back. Depending on how you feel about it you could try to put it in the past and work towards a better time in your marriage, but you NEED to let him know you’re serious, that he can’t do this. I’m very sorry that you’re going through this again, and I’m always here to talk if you need to. I hope I helped a bit.

Hey guys!!

As of right now I’ve been out of a laptop so this is the new “theme” for photos I’ll be using, temporarily. You will also see the old one when Mags uploads pictures!

Excited to post more confessions!

Confession #969: My Marine is deployed right now and even though we are happily engaged, I feel like we are never going to be together. There is always something in the way of us physically being there, with each other for good. I don’t know if I can do distance forever.

Anonymous said: my bf is in the navy and hes in school in south carolina right now and i know hes busy a lot. but last night he wasnt doing much at all besides going to study for an hour so i told him to call me when he gets out because i really haven't heard his voice in awhile, but he never called, and i asked him about it this morning and he was like sorry i was playing video games or whatever he said, it kinda made me mad because i just wanted him to call. but am i being a bitch about it?

I’m sure school is pretty tough on him, a lot of studying and change of pace. But its normal to miss and want to talk to him. I think by asking him to call AFTER he was studying was completely okay. Instead of being mad try to confront it in a different manner, maybe “hey, I miss you a lot and I’d really appreciate if we could have a conversation when you aren’t busy, its been awhile since we talked” explain that you just want to talk when he’s done studying and you aren’t demanding a two hour conversation. Communication is key. Good luck!!

Anonymous said: I recently found out that my navy sailor boyfriend, got immediate orders from boot camp in Chicago to go straight to South Carolina..I live in California and its the longest we've been apart. He had 5 days left of boot camp before we were supposed to see each other again. Now with his new orders I won't get to see him for over 5more months and I miss him so much already it hurts, to be so close then have it taken away. Yet I feel guilty cause I know military wives go through worse. What do I do?

That’s really difficult, it was almost there and then they took it away. :/ I’m really sorry you’re feeling down about this. The good thing is, is that you will be able to have phone calls and skype and see/talk to him a little more now! It’ll make the next five months fly by! Don’t compare yourself to other military wives, we all have different experiences, and you’re new to this! A lot of people get to see their loved one after boot. This is one challenge that you WILL overcome. Good luck!! You both will make it through this together!
