Difficult Circumstances watch

    Hey All,
    I just wanted to post this to get this off my chest really.
    Up until this morning I was a relationship for a year and half with the love of my life. We were perfect together. I love her so much and can never stop thinking about her.

    However, I joined the armed forces nearly a year ago. This wasn't much of an issue and we have been getting on fine since then. However, its been her ambition to join as an Officer. I'm enlisted.
    Two days ago she received a letter that confirmed her place for Officer training at the start of September.
    This was obviously devestating to me. Obviously I was very pleased for her but I thought this would just be tough for us to keep seeing each other.
    However, she felt that it would be better for both of us to break up as Officer/Non-Commissioned relationships in the force that she is joining are not permitted apparently.
    However, we've decided that will still definatly wan't to see each other and talk to each other. But I'm obviously devestated as is she.

    Has anyone been in a similar situation?
    How did you cope with it?

    Right now I feel like my worlds just crashing down around me.
