Dating us army
Well anyways about 41/2-5 years go by and my best friend Rachel and I started hanging out with people that we hung out with back in the day and at this time I’m 21 yrs old and able to actually go out like really go out u know.So the people we started hanging out with and do stuff with were still older than us and they were all really good friends with Bubba they kept in touch with him and what not.My boyfriend is a soldier in the United States Army. Understand that these guys have to deal with things that the average person couldn’t imagine.Though I’m no stranger to military men (my grandfather, father and brother were all enlisted), this is the first time I have dated a soldier. I’ve seen a lot of websites that list ten things an Army girlfriend should remember and do, and some of them made great points. And your honey could be shipped out at any time, for months or years. Many of these are difficult and sometimes disturbing. If he wants to talk about his life in the Army, be it the crazy times with the guys in his unit, the tedium of the everyday, or even the tougher times, let him be the one to broach the subject.Truth be told, it’s hard for them to turn this off.That coupled with the stress and exhaustion that comes with Army life can make it hard for him to spend lots of time planning things for the two of you to do together.It’s giving him a backrub if he’s been doing hard PT all week. This conflict runs through a soldier’s mind every day. But simply telling him you’re proud of him, and meaning it, will say so much more. If you’ve decided to enter a relationship with a soldier, congratulations. As my soldier recently put it, some the toughest jobs in the Army belong to the women who date, or marry into, it. I knew going into this that I wouldn’t see him for long periods of time. He has only been gone for 4 weeks and its already starting to tear me apart. Well anyways we met a long long time ago, the very first time that we met I was a freshman in h.s.
But when it came to face to face talking I would chicken out get real shy I dunno why though, but then soon after that he moved up to South Carolina with his parents and really one of the last times we talked on the phone he wanted me to come up to one of the beaches up there for spring break with all his friends but I declined.Among my friends, I’ve had girlfriends who want to hook them up with soldiers in my guy’s regiment, guyfriends who ask me if he’s going to kill them if they flirt with me, and even coworkers who, shall we say, were less than supportive of the military in general. So if your guy has committed himself to an serious relationship with you, he’s most likely going to stick to that commitment, and he expects you to do the same.As a soldier’s girlfriend, you’ll have to field a lot of the same questions, and frequently clear up misnomers about the Army. Far too many of my soldier friends have had “Jodi” get their girl (you may want to look that up), and it’s especially hurtful to them.But you have to take note that my junior and senior year was a whirlwind kind of a blur but a GREAT blur if you catch my drift hahaha.He says the first time that he met me it was at a party that he came to and I happened to be there.
