    Another newbie!

    Hello

    Somehow stumbled across this site, and thought this is a place for me!

    Boyfriend is a RAF lad, I live 200 miles from where he is currently based.

    None of my friends know what its like to go out with a bloke from the services, don't understand the weeks he has to spend away, on training or exercises.

    My BF does not always understand what life is like outside the services, especially in the corporate world, time is money! plus I work in retail, which means weekend work is the norm.

    As i don't live that near where my BF is, don't get to see and chat to other wives or girlfriends.

    Hoping you all here can shed some light, give some advice and help guide me through life in the services as the other half!

    Re: Another newbie!

    welcome my dear!
    tell you what im in the exact same situation.
    appart from my other half lives 400 miles away and hes in the navy! hehe
    but still, took a while for him to come around to the idea of managing his money well, and what a utility bill is, and that the navy isnt his comfort blanky and he needs to know these things!

    can be well hard, but hes getting there, wage isnt spent by the 10th of the month so i think he has improved! hehehe

    i havent got any friends down here either with oh's in the forces, dont think they understand how we all do it!

    heck im not sure how i do!

    but we have the great feeling when hes about to come home from a tour or patol or what eva, and the reunited time is fab!

    ok ok we tend to be at eachothers necks for two days but then its great!

    hope you settle in ok into the group! its my little haven on the web!

    im a LADY, you see!

    Hello spanner,
    Many of us on here dont get to see our other halves much for one reason or another-so like minded people are only a click away.

    Have fun

    Re: Another newbie!

    hey welcome spanner, i found this site through someone who found it and well it has helped a lot to have people who know what your going through because none of my friends on civi street no....they think i am nuts for being with someone in the service but i can tell you its worth while when you do get to see your OH, when mine was in kenya i missed him like mad (before i was on rear party) but i just kept telling myself it's ok and then when he came back it was like he had never left....people in here know what your going through so if you ever need to talk like someone said were only a click away....

    Hiya and welcome hun

    My fella too is hundreds of miles away in Germany and sometimes the sad thoughts get the better of me, but I can't really talk to my mates about it coz they just don't understand. I'm so glad I have found this place coz not only do you get a supportive ear, but you can have a right good laugh and some great life tips too
