The doubts were frustrating: does it make sense to even attempt dating someone states away?
Whether it made sense or not, it’s not something I regret at all.
Your boyfriend might be in love with you, but he is married to the Army.
Work schedules and leave time are always at the discretion of his superiors and are subject to change at any time.
He even flew me out to where he was during the spring semester and that was the greatest amount of effort I had ever seen from a guy to spend time with me.
Truthfully, dating someone in the military is no different from dating a civilian.
I've learned that you cannot compare each other's difficulties, but instead be there to listen and help one another through hard times. “Normal” guys love to write their appeal off as “the uniform,” or the fact that they’re usually in great shape.But there’s a reason the military men you meet, more so than other hot men in uniform (think firefighters, police officers, the UPS guy), are either in relationships, or don’t seem to have a lot of trouble meeting women. At the end of the day, most of these things are qualities any guy could bring to the table, if he really tried.Dating a military man can be difficult, but if you know what to prepare yourself for, it can be very rewarding.. It is normal to worry, but Civilian life and military life are completely different. Depending on what branch of the military your man is in, and whether he's Active or Reserve, you may not know when his next deployment will be.While we, of course, always love to hear from those who are married to members of the military, this time we wanted to hear from those who have not yet said, “I Do”!
