Dating before deployment

I remember mentioning this to another wife in passing, and how surprised I was that this build-up seemed harder than his first tour.I felt like I was at my wits end and worried about going into a deployment in this state.

Talking with people about relationships with loved ones in the military is like opening a bottle that has been violently shaken.

The pressure inside is so great that the questions and experiences come out fast and strong, and they spew in every direction.

Dating someone in the military isn’t as glamorous as Hollywood makes it appear.

If you are considering seriously dating a man (or woman) in the military, there are a few things to consider.

Maybe you just met this person in the military and are curious about the “what-ifs” that come with the relationship.

Perhaps you are already dating someone in the military but want to know more before making a serious commitment.

Plenty of folks join at 18 and get out at 38, so when you meet a guy in the military who is over 40 and divorced his head is usually spinning from things going on around him. Send me a picture of you sitting at the computer looking at my web page or our emails. But I can verify all of that with my social networking accounts or other info. (If he says he is locked out or needs a new password then say fine, see you in 24 hours).

By the way, in the Army we call that guy “Jody.” When we are at war, “Jody” stays home and fools around with your wife or girlfriend. They are the parasites who take the place of the military service member. Or they need money to build an orphanage or buy stuff for kids or pay a bill back home. Go to Wells Fargo and deposit money to account 1234. While deployed I needed money transferred from one bank to another and had a friend physically go to the bank and move money, but it never involved Western Union or Moneygram an definitely not a third party. Send me pictures of happy American life that I am fighting for. I have lived in a hotel while deployed, even had a rental car. I worked on things that were classified and that’s all you’ll hear about it. While deployed my marriage died, my mother died, and my dog died. Do not continue the chat if he cannot send you an email from a account. Military Singles Connection provides online personals services, including online profiles and photographs of single men and women, chat rooms and an instant messenger – to enable others to communicate in real time, a private mailbox to enable others to exchange personal messages, a public forum to enable others to exchange messages and information…

I was a military girlfriend with a deployed service member and I struggled to balance waiting by the phone with getting out of the house and enjoying life. I always had a feeling about him from the moment we met. Much has changed since my first months as a military girlfriend. Think of your relationship as a beautiful brick wall built by both you and your service member.
