Mine and I are getting married hopefully may 15th. That is our dating anniversary date and it’ll be 6 years together in 2021. He’s going into Air Force Special ops. He’s training exceptionally hard for this and I can feel his passion. Not a doubt in my mind that he will do great things. I’m terrified. He’s my best friend and I’m going to miss seeing him all the time, however it’s not about me. This is about him and about us. I will support him no matter what.

I'm feeling the same. Today, I drive him to the hotel to be shipped out for BMT tomorrow. He's excited and I'm excited for him but he's my best friend and life partner and we've had the amazing opportunity to live together for the last 9 months. I'm going to miss him but know this is temporary. Surprisingly, I'm not nervous but very calm this morning. I'm going to the enjoy our last physical day together until we can be reunited next summer post his trainings.

My boyfriend is leaving for boot on October 26th! I’m super grateful he will be here from 12/21-1/1, then I won’t see him again until the end of March. He’s going to be a combat engineer as well as going to airborne school.

Any tips for savoring these last few weeks, or for the first month he’s gone?

The first few days are the hardest and then you being a routine. I know it sounds scary af, being without him, but my husband leaves about every 18 months and as long as you help living your life and taking care of you you’ll be ok. I find I’m way better at sticking to goals and accomplishing things while my husband gone. I don’t know why but being able to say “I’ll get my body fat down to this” or “I’ll have this room rebuilt” while he’s gone always gives me a deadline and I stick to it!

I'm new to this too (first deployment starting last week) and second the routine sentiment. I get home from work, do a peloton, walk the dog, shower and then I hardly have time to mope. The weekends are the hardest - make plans with friends/family to stay occupied!

My man and I have been doing long distance for the most part and were planning on moving in together late this year. We recently found out he will be going to Ranger School and the shortly after, getting deployed to Poland for a year. All of it is just so scary to think about but I know we’ll be okay. I’m so proud of him but at the same time sad because we were suppose to start our adventure together… I guess it’s all just part of the journey :,).
