CAMO - Connecting All Military Others
Hi Ladies! First off I'd like to say hope everyone is doing well! Ok so I must admit i have been a little overwhelmed lately with my relationship with my Marine. Im actually in tears writing this so bear w/me lol.Ok so if u have been followin my storyline on here then u kno my bf is not on deployment and recently was in his field training.. Ok so after 2 wks i get a text response explainin that he destroyed his phone... i guess that was his excuse of not communicating. Idk i feel like were so distant its like he makes no effort lately everything is work & military stuff, now i kno wat i was gettin into from the beginnin but i jus feel like im the one who is trying really hard to hold us together & i do feel a lil unappreciated...i asked him last nite "are we good" n he was like "yes we are, why?, lol" so i explained how we barely talk lately n he didn say much.. i feel like he is losin interest...im tryin diff ways to approach him but how do you make some 1 listen if u cant get them on the phone.. so i asked him 4 his email explainin that i need to have alt ways of contact & gave it to me..
well i sent him a lil package with a pic album n 2 1/2 short pg letter, i chkd online & it said it was delivered, but when i asked him he said he didn get anything.. i poured out my emotions in it & i really felt like i needed to do somethin diff & unexpected. Im hopin once he gets this, it will help cuz idk wat else to do! Thanks 4 reading...
Hang in there. Sometimes they get so overwhelmed by their work, they start seeming distant. It's hard to understand the kind of life they're living, because ours are so different back home. I feel the same way with my fiance sometimes. He almost seems to "shut down", when really he is just so exhausted and stressed, he doesn't know what else to do. Hopefully everything will even out for you guys :)
You have to stay strong, I have been going through this with my sailor off and on, and it has led to full blown arguments (especially about the unappreciated part) Is he on base? If he is you have to realize that his package may have been delivered already but it hasn't got to where he is staying. Does this make sense? I know when I send my sailor stuff to his barracks it literally takes a month and a half to get to him. The base mailing is so slow. Just continue talking to him and one thing that worked for me is telling my sailor not to shut me out, they have to talk to someone you know? So just try that with him, reassure him that you are here to stay and that he needs to communicate. Let us now how it goes !
