Since my SO went to medical school, and had always planned to do so, it wasn’t exactly as surprise, and I had been mentally preparing myself for the possibility (or rather, the probability) since we started dating.  Even still, him getting his acceptance to a school 5 hours away and then preparing to leave was really difficult for me, since I was (and am!) incredibly proud of him for achieving his dreams, but didn’t want to see him go.  It was hard to accept that it was actually happening even though I knew for a year and a half that he was most likely going to be leaving at some point!

  • Wedding: February 2014

@sammyann:  I definitely get this feeling! my FI and I had been together for a year when he got accepted into the army. While I knew the possibility was always there, I didn’t really think it would ever happen, so when it did, I was devastated.

My FI has been away at bootcamp for 4 months now, and I found it unbelievably hard when he left. I felt like he didn’t love me, because I don’t think I would be able to do anything that cut me off from him like that. 

We have talked about it though, and I know he loves me, and I’ve realised how good the whole experience has been for him, and he’s realised its what he wants to do with his life. As much as I hate that this is what he has decided, I do my best to support him, because it hasn’t been easy being away from me either.

I haven’t handled it brilliantly though. The thought of being apart was unbearable, but you get through it, and I know how much I love him, and i want to spend the rest of my life with him, so I just keep busy to keep my mind off it, and stay strong for both of us
