CAMO - Connecting All Military Others
Even though Corey isn't here I still like to go out and have fun. I go to clubs and some bars with my close guy friends and I also go to parties and stuff like that. I never dance with other guys though, just my sister or any other girls that end up going with us. Before he left for his deployment I had just turned 18 the week before so he told me he didn't care because I was still going to be in my "oh my god I'm grown up and can do this now phase"
Yet I still feel bad for going out while he's in Afghanistan. Should I or am I just overreacting? I try to have fun because that's what I'm going to these places for but in the back of my mind I'm just like "is he really ok with this?"
What are your thoughts and do any of you have this problem?
Thank you so much! That makes me feel a lot better. And whenever I go out I make sure my best friends Tyler and Casey are with me. They're guys but Corey knows them and they're basically my body guards haha. I never like to get myself into situations where something bad could happen. Never in my life would I think about being unfaithful but there are some really bad people out there especially at the club I go to.

Hey Brianne! My boyfriend is also in Afghanistan right now. I don't think that you should feel bad at all for going out. You are not doing anything wrong by going out with your friends to clubs and bars. You can't stop your life completely because he isn't there to go with you. As long as you stay faithful to him and do what is right I'm sure he really is fine with it. I get how difficult it is, I have questioned myself a few times now with wether or not I should be doing something like going out to parties. But I feel as long as Im making the right decisions and are around the right people I shouldn't feel bad about it. Not that I go out a lot to parties anyway, my friends live a few hours away! But Im sure he would rather have you out doing something and enjoying yourself than being home alone and just missing him. My dad was in the military up until I turned 16, my mum gave me advice before Tristan left and she told me to carry on with my life.. and to not choose to do something just because he isn't there. She said it would go a lot slower living that way! And he will want to hear that I'm happy and having fun when we get to talk on the phone because if I don't sound happy that makes it harder on him! Try not to feel bad I think you are making good decisions by the sounds of things :))
As long as you are making good decision when you're out then there's no reason to feel bad :)
