A little more about me.

Like I said, I don't feel like I'm your typical Navy Girlfriend and maybe that's why I decided to start this blog. I know that there are a lot of other girls that have similar blogs, but many of them are about making babies and being stay-at-home moms. Young girls that married their high school sweethearts and followed them wherever the Navy took them. Me, I'm 30. S is 30 and has been in the Navy for 9 years. We've both been in serious relationships in the past and a little further into the game than most.

S has many friends in the Navy who have been married and divorced, two or three times over. I've never been married and although he has, I am not looking for a relationship like most people he knows. I'm old enough to know better and know what I'm getting myself into. I know its going to be hard and I know it will be a struggle sometimes, but in the end it will only make us stronger.

I am originally from Connecticut, born and raised. I graduated from the University of Connecticut with a B.A. in Sociology in 2004 and completed my MBA in 2009. I have been working in Higher Education since I finished grad school. Mostly in Admissions, but I recently landed a state job at the local community college. Although I'm still only considered a contract employee, I'm hoping to be hired full-time permanent very soon. I am hoping that with my education and background, I will be able to work for the Navy some day as a civilian or at least be able to find work wherever we may end up. I definitely want to have kids and soon hopefully, however, I definitely feel the need to work until then and then I'll see where life takes me. I would like to continue in my career, but if I need to spend more time at home with the babies than I am okay with that, too.

We have been taking it slow in our relationship, taking into consideration the events that happened in the not-so-distant past. I know that S will only be in Charleston for so long and although I absolutely love this place, I will go wherever he goes. Before the end of his contract, he will have to go back out to sea again. He seems to think that there is a pretty good chance that he will be on a boat out of Kings Bay, GA. He also thinks that we can maintain a home in Charleston while he spends time in GA as needed. I wouldn't say that I am compeltely opposed to moving to GA though. We shall see.

So that is my story in a nutshell. I'm hoping to connect with other girlfriend/wives like myself. So if you are out there, feel free to say hello!
