    Hello everyone! When I came across this site I felt relived because I have no idea what to expect on being a girlfriend to a future Coastie. My boyfriend and I have dated all throughout our senior year of high school and we graduated this year in May (yay!) but now he's leaving next Tuesday for basic training at Cape May. He's going to be gone for 8 weeks!  I'm feeling all kinds of emotions for him; I'm happy, nervous, excited, sad, proud, scared, overjoyed, and everything in between. I need some advice on how to cope with him being gone and how to prepare when I go up for his graduation. Thank you!

    Just write daily about your day. No matter how small the detail is add it to the letter. Encourage and have his back throughout the whole ordeal and be ready to accept that he more than likely won't be stationed close to him.

    Do not tell him how much you miss him. He needs to have his mind focused on the next eight weeks. It was easier coping with a loved one being gone before cell phones and smart phones. In days of old when a loved one was in the service all many had was a picture of them. So look at his picture from time to time, I suggest praying daily for him and keep yourself occupied.

    How to prepare for his graduation is easy. Dress nice and expect him to be a bit changed which is ok. He will probably have a raspy voice from yelling, may have the Cape May Crud and will be very alert and possibly tense. He will need to decompress and will be very tired. Understand that it has nothing to do with you when he just falls asleep on you when he is home on leave.
