Whether it made sense or not, it’s not something I regret at all.
If you’re teetering on the edge of this particular path, think through the lifestyle before you jump in:(And don’t date him/her if you believe that “everyone cheats” during deployment.) Period. (So do people in the civilian world.) But that doesn’t mean everyone does, that we all agree with it, or that it’s even the “norm.” You will be separated from the person you love at some point during their career in the military. It’s okay to get frustrated, be angry, and cry, but you’ve got to pick yourself up and move on.
To start with, I would ask anybody who is to date an army guy to possess a lot of perseverance with an equal amount of optimism and adaptability.
let alone the deployment part, the conversation cuts are countless, you have to garner faith and courage to just be true to your commitment. Unlike a civilian relationship there are numerous challanges, sacrifices and tribulations involved on both ends,.
“I will never date a soldier” is the phrase I used to tell myself religiously.
Growing up with my dad in the Army, I have always felt that I got enough of the military lifestyle – and then I ended up dating someone in the military anyway.
