Love and the Army

by Kailtyn
(Eugene Oregon)

This guy I was seeing said he liked me. So we started having a thing, but then out of nowhere he just stopped talking to me and I got angry like any girl would.

On Sunday, I saw him at work at Taco Bell and I thought he wasn't working that day so I went inside and he's at the cash register. I freaked.

Later, he texted me. I didn't recognize the number because I deleted it when he stopped talking to me. So he texts me, "Hey how are you doing?" I wanted to know who was texting me. He said, "It's Zack. We need to talk." I was like, what about. He said, "I'll call you later." I was like umm..... okay.

He ends up texting me and says, "Babe, we need to talk. The reason why I dropped us talking was because I didn't want to hurt you if we started anything because two weeks after I graduate high school, I'm going to basic training for the army. I'm sorry but I didn't want to hurt you, so I figured that you being pissed off at me would be better than me breaking your heart because I care for you. I want us but that was the only way I knew not to not hurt you because either way, it would have happened and last Sunday when I saw you, it killed me."

I don't know what to say...

What to think
by: Jack

He clearly cares about you with all his heart. He is making a very brave and noble decision to go to the Army. I have plans for the Marines after I am done with my education and have a girlfriend that i plan on marrying. We have talked about it a lot. Just sit down and talk to him and tell him how you feel. Besides, basic training is like 8 or so weeks and he can write you. Then he will be back and you can be together.

Well, I think if you really care for each other and are willing to wait then Im sure the distance will only bring you closer. But once your in there's no cheating or sending letters or texts breaking up its only fair that you tell each other face to face exactly why it can or cant work. You could never say your wasting your time waiting for someone when the love involved is true and you can never find this out if you don't take the chance. The Movie 'Dear John' Is a lot like your situation.

Its a great love story. I hope It works out for both of you..x

Well, I have a lot to compare to you and your story. I also have plans for the military and such. And I wonder about it several times a day, "how will she feel?" I don't know. But it's gonna suck as I can imagine.

Why do boys go to war? Or why do they leave like such? I don't know. Power? Adrenalin? The thought of heroism over a man and watching people do the unthinkable? I don't know.

I like your work.
