Umm.. I am kind of in a bit of an emotional bind. You see I am dating the most wonderful guy. But, he was just recently deployed to fight in this war. Since then I haven't heard from him. That was March fifth. What do I do to keep my mind off of what could have happened? (His parents have told me that he's fine and he just doesn't know when to call because he doesn't want to upset my roommate)

Give him some time sometimes the military can be very demanding and secetrive,most times they are not allowed to contact many people except there parents to inform them that they arrived safley. It is a busy place over there so please be patient,if he assured you he would contact you than he will when they allow him some free time.

i would tell his parents to let him know he can call at any time cause you want to hear from him or atleast get an e-mail address or mailing address so you can have some kind of contact with him.Although the soldiers are surrounding by friends when they are mobilized, it means the world to them to talk to people from back home. When you do get in touch with him, just let him know he can call anytime and once you get an address, send him like a care package or just anything to let him know that he is not forgotten.
