I seem to get all of this advice about what to do and what not to do when your SO goes on deployment. I did exactly what they said not to, and am comparing when shipmates of my SO are communicating with their loved ones. I realize that this guy will message me as soon as he can. But it’s very hard waiting and wondering when exactly this will be.
I feel like a terrible person today. I spent almost two weeks bracing myself for a time apart from someone that I actually really like. Then I spent two weeks trying my darnedest not to talk to him.
The disgusting, unconscious truth?
