A lot of guys feel this way when they 1st go in. Mine did and at that point we had known each other/been in love for many years. It takes time for them to adjust to their surroundings and the fact that they are ultimately now dependent on their wife/girlfriend/fiance which for a lot of them is hard to adjust to especially if they have always been independent. Chalk it up to the male ego and feeling like less of a man since he can no longer be the provider. Give him some time to adjust to things and in the meantime, show him that you aren't going anywhere.

Be calm this is normal. He loves you so of course he feels you deserve more than he can give you right now. Just reassure him you love him and want to be with him despite the circumstances. It may take some time but he will eventually realize that love is what matters. This life is tough so it's hard for them to believe anyone would want to deal with it. He will have insecurity at times just stick by him and show him how much he means to you. Good luck.

Very normal and well it's not likely to be the only time he says something like this either. Assure him that you love him and that you're not going anywhere. I told mine that he might think he's broke up but I'm not and to give his wife a break and quit being so rough with me. Yes believe me, we have gone through this more than once and we been together 7 years down 5.

Keep doing what you are doing, send letters, visit when you can ... he'll eventually see that his current circumstance hasn't changed your feelings. The ladies are absolutely right, it is part of the male ego and adjustment period. Keep your chin up!

Personally I'd write a letter to get things started and let him know you still have his back.

I wouldn't say its normal. You can write him and tell him how you feel. I have also known friends who said that to girls they weren't really serious about and it's the perfect excuse to get rid of them-oh, I'm states property now, so I can't do anything for you. Would you leave him in any messed up situation, so why would he even say that? thats what you need to figure out, because its very hurtful and if you loved someone, you wouldn't tell them to leave for any reason. No matter how sorry you feel for yourself-pushing someone you love away makes no sense. I would write him and see if maybe that was just a bad day and expect that not to be the way to express it.
