Victoria’s story

Apr 18, 2013 by

I’ve been with my boyfriend for under a year and we are great together, he has been in the army since before I met him so I’m used to him being away but it’s only ever been a few hours away and we’ve always been able to talk through out the day.

Last week he moved abroad and is only able to call me once a day, I can’t describe how much I miss talking to him through the day and how hard it is. I know he loves me and wants to be with me, but with not talking to him, I feel I’m just in the background of his new life and being a bit of a hassle. He tells me how much he wants me there, however I still have a few weeks of Uni and he hasn’t sorted somewhere to stay, that I will be able to be with him.. (Obviously, as we’re not married, we have to find our own place).

I try to keep strong for his phone calls, because I hate thinking that I might be making him feel guilty about leaving, even though he can’t do anything about it. But I also want him to know how much I can’t bare being without him and how much I miss him. After spending so much time with him, and then being completely cut off, it’s so hard to do anything except wait for his calls. I just feel like I’m going to get paranoid that he will forget about me, or get bored of trying to talk to me.

I would go over there in a heart beat, but with needing to finish my course it puts me in a situation. But I’d do anything for him and he knows this. Does it get easier? I think it might just be a thing we’ll have to get used to, but it’s soo hard!
