    Ms. Maghan, I'm having a rough week already! DB and I are on the outs and I am not a happy lady. He was just gone for 2weeks for training. I had been waiting all day Friday to find out if we were going to see each other this weekend. No call came so Friday night I called him and he was at his friends house watching a movie...NP he said he would call me when he got call ever came, no text ever came. He never replied to my calls or text. I am so frustrated. It is one thing when I don't hear from him when he working, but when he has off...uugghh! It just makes it 10Xs worse because you work so hard at waiting and being supportive. I'm ! are you? Hope you and your sweetheart are doing GREAT! Take care!!

    Hi Maghan! I'm so happy you got to see your sweetheart, that is GREAT! My DB was gone on a training mission for a couple of weeks and he called me yesterday to let me know he was on his way back to base. I hope he is off this weekend, I sure will make that 10hour trip to see him. I miss him like crazy!
    Take care and have a great week!

    I read your post and was impressed at how positive and upbeat you are. I am trying very hard to be but today is not a good day. My SO has recently been relocated and communication is not good right now. I try to always be strong and upbeat when I talk to him and usually I truly am but today is a bad day. I know you don't know me but you do know how I feel and I just needed to reach out to someone tonight.

    I am so happy you are having a positive experience with deployment so far. I think he is preparing me for the worst, so any communication I get from him will seem amazing and he gets to earn boyfriend points! Are you connected with his base's family readiness center? From what I read, they send out email and news updates about the SO troop. Will your SO be gone for a year?
    Keep in touch...I'm sure this is easier to go through with others that can understand the feelings we go through.

    Hey Mkensi,
    My name is Ashley, and I saw you had responded to my post. Thank you so much, my boyfriend actually ended up leaving last night. Of course, the night he leaves I had to work. I didn;t think it would be as hard, because it is only a month, but it is. I wish we were able to communicate more while he is there, but i do not think we will be able to. Shortly after he comes home he leaves for Afghanistan. I hope everything is doing okay with you!

    Hi Mkensi, my name is Sheila. I am in a similar situation. My DB is getting ready to deploy very soon..sooner than we were preparing for. Sometimes I wonder what I got myself into. I have no experience with anyone in the military, so everything seems "strange" to me. I have really used this site to calm some of my nerves. When no one else understands why i have not heard from my DB for weeks..someone here has always encouraged me.

About Mkensi
Not yet, but hopefully some day
Current Location/ Duty Station:
Me: Kentucky, Him: Iraq
How I Met My Military Significant Other:
Tony and I actually met when I was dating one of his old high school friends a couple of years ago. We became good friends and would often go out with the same group of people. When my relationship ended with my ex-boyfriend, Tony and I remained friends and still went out in the same social circle. We eventually started to hang out one-on-one and quickly realized that we had a very strong connection beyond friendship. We started dating on new years day of 2011 and my life has been completely changed by him.
About Me:
I'm 22 years old. I just finished my Bachelors degree in Communication Disorders and I am currently enrolled in graduate school to pursue my Masters in Speech-Language Pathology. I will finish in May of 2013. I also have a brother who just joined the Air Force and is leaving for basic training at the end of August, and my dad retired as a sergeant first class in the Army. Although this is my first deployment in a relationship, I'm not exactly new to military life. However, there is still a lot that I am getting used to.
About Us:
Considering my track record of failed relationships, Tony is my breath of fresh air. There really isn't much of a better way to put it than that. We are really good at making each other laugh, and there isn't a day that goes by that he doesn't make me smile, even from thousands of miles away. This is it :-)
Interests & Hobbies:
I live close to home so I love to go back and visit family. I also like spending time with my girlfriends, cooking, reading, crafts, working out, shopping, watching movies, going to the lake, etc. I'm your average 22 year old.
Dream Sheet:
DB is in the National Guard, so we have the freedom to move around a little. Once I finish school, we hope to move to Nashville, TN. I want to practice at a medical, nursing, or rehabilitation facility. Tony and I both love Nashville and the fact that it is so close to home. We are very excited about our future :-)
I'm a big country music fan, but I like a little bit of everything.
I'm a big reader. I love all Emily Giffin novels, and I'm currently reading Water for Elephants. I LOVE Cosmopolitan magazine.
full time graduate student
