My boyfriend is going for Basic training in Texas for 5 months. Any advise on how to make a long distance relationship work? I'm scared—I've never gone longer than 2 days without seeing him.

distance strenghens strong loves
by: Anonymous

The key to a sucessful long distance relationship is establishing complete trust with one another. My boyfriend and I went to great lengths to remain faithful throughout his 15 month tour in Iraq. It was difficult at first because we were both scared.

He wasn't ready to commit to me and I was afraid of being heartbroken once again. We both came to the realization that we loved each other and had to give up our selfish ways in order to become one with one another.

I had to give up all the past men in my life and he had to give up all the past women his life in order for us to move on with each other. We lasted the entire 15 months by each others side and now we are happily married.

How to Make a Long Distance Relationship Work

Trust me, hon, him being away for 5 months is just the beginning ... I am a military spouse myself and if you think 5 months is a long time, then wait until he deploys ... my husband was away for 14 months. If your love is strong enough, you can make it through anything!

You've just gotta stay in touch talk as much as possible and it will just work.
