My boyfriend of 2 mths has been deployed to Bamako, Mali
It has been hard for me. We just met online in April. I live in Singapore while he lives in DC. He visited me on 19th of June and we decided to go exclusive as we love each other and he said we can plan for wedding a year from now if we get along till next year.
He loves me even though I hv a 13 yr old child. He said it does not matter to him.
We were attracted to each other online and was instantly attracted to each other the moment we met at Changi airport in Singapore. We spent quality time before he flew home on 1st June. He flew to Bamako, Mali on 14th of June on a 6 mths deployment.
Doug is a Lt Col in US Air Force in charge of International affairs and he said this assignment is interesting as he is working with the UN
Since he left Singapore he has been writing to me but not everyday. He said he has been very busy preparing for his deployment.
He called me from New York and Paris Airport on the way to Africa via Viber but I hv not received any calls from him again since he started his deployment.
He promised to take me to a 2 week holiday where we can spend quality time in January for my birthday
I miss him like crazy, and I feel like January is like forever
I just don't understand. If he said he loves me very much and that I am always on his mind, his thoughts, why doesn't he write to me everyday since he has access to wifi although he said it is not very stable
If he can write to me on Whatsapp why can't he call me?
Do your bf/fiance/ husband call you often? Care to share your experience?
May I know how long do you engaged / married to your man after you know him?
Is getting to now him 1 yr before getting engaged/married too long, too short or just right?
I hv not dated since I get separated from my ex in Oct 2007. Doug is the first after so many years as I was not ready.
Thx v much for sharing.
Thank you very much
