    Dear civilian girl,

    Advertisements
    You complain that your boyfriend has worked late all week and have barely seen him.
    -I look forward to the two weeks a year we spend together.
    You complain because he doesn't call you enough.
    -My heart is thankful for the 15 second phone call I got last Tuesday in the middle of the night!
    You whine to your friends about how much you miss him already because he is on a two day trip with his parents.
    -I won't see him for another 10 months!
    You don't feel like making love tonight because you are too tired.
    -We will stay up all night because we don't know when it will be the last time.
    Your boyfriend belongs to you.
    -Mine belongs to the government.
    Your boyfriend is training for his game next weekend.
    -My boyfriend is trained to kill.
    It's just not practical for you to drive an hour to see him every weekend during school.
    -He spends $700 dollars on a plane ticket just to see me 2 days!
    You hate hanging up the phone when talking to him.
    -My heart breaks because I won't talk to him for another 10 days.
    You complain that he doesn't take enough time out of his life for you.
    -My man has to get up in the middle of the night to talk with me because of the time difference.He doesn't complain.
    Your man is in a bad mood from not sleeping much this week.
    -My man ran 10 miles this morning at 4 in the morning and has a full day of work ahead of him.(He's lucky if he gets a few hours of sleep!)
    Your boyfriend can call in sick when he is tired or not feeling well.
    -My man works no matter what!
    You don't trust him so you follow him places to see if he is telling the truth.
    -I have no choice but to trust him and even then I trust him with my life.
    You don't like him talking so sexually with his friends.
    -My boyfriend has to chant it in drills.
    You check your phone, see you missed a call from him, and decide to call him back when you aren't so busy.
    -I see a missed a call and cry, because I don't know when he can call again.
    You might save a cute voice message from him.
    -I save them all b/c it helps me to remember what his voice sounds like.
    Being apart for a month to you seems daunting.
    -A month apart for me is a wish that can't come true.
    You wouldn't change schools to be close to him.
    -I have to move to another country to be with him.
    You have every part of him memorized.
    -I study pictures so I don't forget what he looks like.
    You take your time together for granted.
    -We don't!
    Your cell phone bill was high this month from talking too much.
    -He pays 20 cents a minute to call me… when he CAN call.
    You love that fancy necklace he bought you
    -I refuse to take his dog tags off, and not a day goes by that I don't have them on...

    You say you miss him??


    a military S/O friend of mine wrote this......i loved it so much and what she wrote i had to share it!! i figured all ya'll would maybe relate?
    hopefully it doesn't offend anyone b/c i know not EVERYONE is a militarysos anymore.....plz its not disrespect to you!

    And it probably belongs in Military Pride more than venting.

    I really don't like the poem but I think it's cool that she writes. I'm a writer too.

    Pretty much. I was initially very offended but I don't think that's what the OP intended so I'll leave that alone.
