And of course…the ultimate question…what if he doesn’t come back? I saw a commercial about a soldier coming home and felt like I had been punched in the gut. ) starts in November, meaning he could get deployed any time starting in November until March…Deployment as I understand it could be 6-12 months. I don’t know anyone closely who has been in until I met my boyfriend. I begin to think about these things and get so overwhelmed that I just stop and enjoy the moment…I’m having so much fun with him and he is everything I’ve ever looked for in a guy.
There wasn’t any thought of hooking up, or of dating on and off till their mid thirties, or of living in their parents basement until they landed a cushy job.
