Long Distance Girlfriend

by chris klepy
(kandahar afganistan)

I have a girlfriend and we have been dating for 4 years now. She is a long distance girlfriend now because I am in the military.


Recently, she met this guy named Ben. They have been sending each other questionable e-mails, but she tells me she loves me to death and she wants to get married someday, but I don't know what to think of this because I am across the world from her.

I don't know what to think. I just need someone to give me solid advice. Can you help me?

Remember what you're waiting for...
by: Desiree

My boyfriend is in the Army and currently deployed. Even when at his posting we are in different states. Sometimes you need a reminder that he's just more than a voice on the phone. Arrange to have flowers delivered to her at work, or make a video clip of you and your normal day. Do something to remind her what she's waiting for.

Also, be open with each other. You guys have survived four years, talk about your hopes and fears, talk about the next time you'll be together. Look to the future, a future where you're together.

Love Long Distance
by: Anonymous

My daughter also has dated a Military guy for 4 yrs now...he is getting out to be with her real soon.
I was there for him to let him know and remind him that she was being true to him. Tell your girl how you feel. The hardest times are the farthest away times. Be happy and thank you for serving our country!

Long Distance Love
by: zanele. somanco. south africa

Hey, Chris, part of loving is trusting someone. You have been with this gal for 4 years now, so you know that she loves you and if she didn't, you guys wouldn't last that long nor would your long distance love survive. Be honest with yourself and her also, tell her your fears about this Ben dude and make sure you also tell her how much you love her. She really loves you and it's not fair for her if you do not have faith that your relationship will last. Stop being insecure and love your future wife!

Go With Your Gut...
by: Anonymous

Okay, so if someone I've dated for four years started talking to another guy, I'd get a little nervous, but if you love her, you have to trust her. Without trust, love becomes almost superficial.

You have reason to be worried if you're not there. Just go with your gut, man! That's all I have to say.

OKAY

Listen. This girl has been dating you for four years and she still says she loves you! Just because she meets a new guy does not mean that they are going to hook up. It seems as if this girl really, sincerely loves you! So quit worrying!
