    he is leaving, my first time Help

    Advertisements
    New joinee.

    My boyfriend and I have been dating for over 2 years. He has joined the navy and is now leaving for bootcamp. How do I get through this and not go crazy. I need some ideas to keep me busy until I get to talk to him again. He leaves tonight. I should get about 1 letter a week. Help me please!

    Keep busy... find a new hobby, do things you like to do, spend time with friends, visit family if you are close to them, take an online class or go to a class in town (art, cooking, whatever)... My boyfriend of 2 years left for navy bootcamp on the 3rd, so I'm in the same boat you are. if you wanna talk, feel free to PM me.
    Are you a parent? Ask me how you can help out with my thesis!!

    Hi! I'm Kate, my boyfriend is in the navy too.

    What I did while he was gone was anything to keep me busy, sitting there and doing nothing just makes everything a million times harder. I went out with my friends a lot whether it was to dinner or to a playground. It was hard because half the time he was gone was the summer, so I didn't have school to keep me busy, but when I got to school I just focused on my work and had that keep me pretty busy, I also work at school so that took away from the sitting and thinking time.

    There is a section just for boot camp so if you have any questions about that just search through there or send me a private message and I'll be happy to answer any questions you have.

    Hello. I'm Kelsey. My DB is in the Army & is at basic right now.
    It will honestly go by alot faster than you think. A lot of ladies on here told me that when he first left and I would just think to myself, yea right. But it really does. Lol. Surround yourself with people that understand what your going through. Bootcamp is hard because for most couples it's the first time you've been seperated. PM me anytime you want to talk

    This site helped a lot for me while my DH was gone.

    I agree with the other ladies, take up a hobby, hang out with friends and family.

    You can do this and you are strong!! Hang in there.
