Thumbs Down So my boyfriend left for basic training...
Nine days ago, my boyfriend left for basic training for the Marines.
He will be graduating around December 6th of this year.
I'm missing him so so much.

I'm curious as to if any of you have been through this before and if so, how can I make the time go by quicker or what are some things to distract me?
Help please, ily.

Sounds like a good time.
The problem is.. I hate watching movies alone.
Tbh I really just want to get a ton of people to come over and us have a Star Wars marathon because that'd be amazing.

Video games have been my main distraction lately, but maybe that stuff will work too.
Thanks.

Whenever I'm deployed or TDY, my wife tries to spend her free time with friends or family. It keeps her mind on something besides me being gone and helps keep her from feeling as lonely.
It's always harder in the beginning and it does take time to adjust.

My sister had the same scenario when she was a high school senior. I know a lot of the time she spent hanging out with his friends since they had mutual interests and missed him.

Beyond that, idk since you don't like watching movies alone, I think she watched Forrest Grump 2 dozen times in that absence as well. Long movie that passed time.

Create educational content on youtube.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

This is me resisting the urge to make crude and insincere suggestions about finding a temporary, disposable boyfriend.

Instead... volunteer. Teach 3-7 year-olds to read at the public library. Be a docent at a museum. Hold boxes of apple juice for the geriatric set at the hospital. Help out at the animal shelter.

Or, learn how to do cool scary makeup for Halloween... rotting zombie flesh and translucent-skinned vampires and axe wounds to the face.

Dye your hair.

See how far you can ride your bike in a day.

Learn to make the BEST pot of chili in your county, and prove it by winning a cook-off.

Or... something... Unsure

I'm sorry you miss your boyfriend. That's rough. Hug

I AM he who is called... cat furniture.

RE: So my boyfriend left for basic training...
My fiance goes out of town often for work, usually only a few weeks at a time but it's tough sometimes, especially if we have other stuff going on that I feel I need his support on. You probably can't talk to him often during this absence, but perhaps you could sit down and write him a letter when you're feeling particularly down or lonely. Give them to him when he returns, or don't, either way it may be a helpful release for you to vent your frustrations and emotions. Good luck, I hope it goes by quickly for you.
