We Were Significant Others Once, Too

Although SpouseBUZZ is a place for military spouses, not all of our readers are military spouses. "Significant others" also lurk, read and comment here, and we're happy to have you. After all, before we became military spouses, we were significant others. I would have paid a fair amount of money to have had a resource like SpouseBUZZ available to me before I married into the Army. It probably would have helped me understand the culture a bit better, and avoid some of the more embarrassing situations I found myself in.

Several months ago, I wrote a post asking significant others to say hello. I've noticed that since then, many have kept coming back to that post and connecting with one another, which I think is great. One comment really grabbed me.

Already after 4 weeks I realize that I'm going to have times like this evening, melt downs because I feel lonely and scared most of all, because I haven't heard anything.

Reading through these posts I realize that I'm not alone, that there are others that are going through the same.

****

Most of all, I think I just needed to "vent", but I want all of you that share this situation with me to know, that I'm thinking of you, as well.

I will check back and read posts and post! Keep your heads up, everyone, and hang in there.

One of the main reasons SpouseBUZZ exists. For girlfriends or boyfriends who have found us recently, I thought I would open a fresh thread for you. Say hello to us, let us know who you are and how we can better support you.
