    hello.
    I'm New on this forum.
    My Fiance is joining the Navy and is waiting for his entry date.
    I found this forum through RR forum and thought it would be a good place to find people in a similar situation, as I'm a bit worried it might change things between us.

    Hi Rach,
    welcome to RP!
    change is inevitable (except in vending machines), but it's how you both deal with it that counts. I'm sure you'll be fine.
    Have a read of the forums on here, there's loads of people in similar situations that can offer some advice & support and people to just chat to.

    Welcome Rach....there is a good mixture of people, mums, dads, wives, husbands, kids, serving, girlfriends and boyfriends. Pull up a chair, crack open a bottle and sit back and enjoy.

    Hi Rach. Welcome to RP. Archers will do nicely. I'll bring some cherries will I?

    As to who is on here, well, lots of alsorts. From your backbone of the Army (Yep, the WAGs) to friends, family, serving personnel and the occasional odd-ball (That'd be me by the way...)

    And a lovely oddball you are too legs. Welcome rach, as long as someone else has said things are bound to change, just take care of yourself and do your best to be there for him when he needs you, its all you can do (wont say it will all be fine since as I discovered sometimes it isnt). Enjoy the people on here, and keep the archers stocked up we have a habit of sharing our drink on here...
    Doris when you go to the meetings Ill say hi.

    Welcome Rach - all peope welcome and oddballs definitely make life more interesting and exciting. And as for the Archers - well we are a pretty eclectic lot and the more variety the better.

    enjoy RP it is a sanity saver (perhaps because we are all wonderfully mad!).

    All the best

    Archers???!!! Vodka is the way ahead and for your sweet tooth stick some haribo in it. That will sort you out!

    Ooo i like the sound of vodka with haribo... reminds of the many times i have had a fish bowl cocktail.. is a mixture of all sorts with fish shaped sweets in the bottom... delicious!! Could easily have a big one to myself.
    Anyone else had one?
