Hi my name is Megan. I am nineteen years old and I have been dating my boyfriend for a year. We have been best friends for seven years. Jimmy (my boyfriend) is leaving for the Air Force in about a month. I am so nervous and I don't know what I do or who to talk to. His family is here for me but, they don't really understand. I'm on here because everyone will know my feelings. Thank you for reading this.

Hi Megan, welcome to the forum. Thank you for using the large font, my fellow retirees and I (referred to from here on as the "Blue-ID Mafia") appreciate it.
Most people have no idea what they are getting into when joining the AF, so it's all-good.
Just to warn you, I don't know if you've lurked this forum, but some folks can be kind of harsh. Like the movie Kill Bill was kind of violent.

Find the "AF Wingmoms" group on Facebook... tons of great info there. They create private groups for each graduating class, so you can share questions/concerns with others in your loved one's same flight.

Don't know about AF but know plenty about Military and relationships. When I left for boot I was engaged to my best friend of 9 years and girlfriend for 4. Boot was hard, AIT (i think the AF calls it Tech School) it got better. She was in college in Mississippi, I got stationed in FT Hood Texas. We met almost every weekend in Louisiana. Then I was Deployed to Desert Storm, and like soooooooo many statistics the Dear John followed. Neither of us ever really recovered from it. 8 divorcees between us 23 years later we stay in touch and are civil, both wanting to re-kindle the flame, but neither of us willing to forgive the other, her for me leaving her alone, me for her turning her back on me when I needed her the most. This is my only advice, communicate, about this, commit wholeheartedly, or walk away before he leaves, if he deploys OConus.

Good Luck
