, never miss a post by subscribing to my newsletter!Rather, it just seems like it’s been a post that’s been writing itself for the past (almost!But military life (and military relationships) seem to move just a little faster and need more planning than others. You will put up with deployment, weird shifts, emergencies, trainings, and a whole bunch of other stuff that will happen at inopportune times and will be the least helpful thing.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. There was no particular email or conversation that got me thinking about this topic.
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.Here are some of the highs and lows of dating a military man. We love getting stuff from our guys, but the wait is the killer part! Especially when you have no clue when he will have his phone and if he will even be allowed to use it!I know talking to my guy is the best part of my day, but the wait definitely isn't. We hate the time difference between us, and we hate missing them so much.Dating a military man poses unique challenges, and as we overcome them our relationships with our guys grow stronger.
There is a sense of needing each other more, and a sense of understanding and resilience is necessary to make the relationship last.
We know they have to be away to fight for our freedom but we really just want them home to spend time together.
