He was an ass, didn’t say anything, he said what up then turned back around to face Kalea, so I continued to walk in and was like what a asshole and never thought about him until like 2 years later.He says he doesn’t remember this and I actually didn’t remember this until we were at his parents house one time and he showed me his driver’s license from back then and suddenly that memory came flying back to me. Now honestly I couldn’t rightly tell you just exactly how we met for the second time, the time that was a better experience haha.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.It’s making sure to text him good night before he bunks in. Each second I spent apart from my boyfriend makes each moment together twice as sweet. I always imagined dating someone who would go to college and I would see on some weekends and over the holidays. Maybe the mail screwed it up, or the Army hasn’t sent them out yet. I am 22 yrs old and from the great state of Alabama. We’ve been together for 7 months now, so you could say that I’m still green at being an army girlfriend.It’s sending him a funny picture that will brighten his long, hard day. It’s also, according to my Army friends, one of the most rewarding careers a person can have, and one of the greatest things one can be a part of. A soldier is brave, he’s smart, and he’s a tough son of a gun. Feel free to show your pride in the conventional ways: a bumper sticker, a t-shirt, etc. So prepare yourself, you’re about to embark on what can often be a trying adventure. Each time I can make his life easier, his simple gratitude fills my heart. But I fell in love with this great guy who wanted to serve his country. I finally got his address from his parents the week before and I’ve written him 5 letters. The way Bubba and I met (and lol no he’s not some kind of backwoods redneck haha I promise ladies but that’s his nickname he’s had since he was little and its just suck for the past 25 years) is a really great story, I think its kind of like a lifetime movie type of story.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.
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.
I’m sorry I wasn’t going to somewhere far away with no car of my own not really knowing anybody for some guy that I just really talk to on the phone and plus I wasn’t that interested for real so I didn’t go.
Right after that he enlisted into the Army and we lost touch.
Hopefully, you have a few close friends who’ll try to understand your new lifestyle. So if you can’t remain true, forget the whole thing and move on with your lives. Then, after falling in love with a medic, this changed, and it really caught me off gaurd. Certain movies, television shows and video games were suddenly off limits in my house, because they disturbed him or gave me nightmares. This is true of any relationship, but it can mean so much more to a soldier. His name is Eric, we’ve been together for almost 2 years and I’ve known he wanted to become a solder since the day we started dating. But I feel like the Army doesn’t care about the girlfriends, only the wives and children of the soldiers. I’m proud of my soldier and I tell him that in every letter.
I was watching an episode, and suddenly, it hit me harder than it ever had before. Get ready to make concessions in this department, for his comfort and for your own mental well-being. Be it baking him a batch of cookies to take back to base, writing him a letter (snail-mail) every week or even every day he’s overseas, or simply shrugging it off when he has to cancel a date last minute because he just found out he’s got an early call the next morning, doing little things that may seem insignificant to you will matter so much to him. When we first got together, I was very skeptical about dating a guy who was going to leave me to start his career. It is my understanding that if something were to happen to me (heaven forbid), he wouldn’t even know about it until someone wrote to him. I joined this site because no one I know understands how hard this is. ***** Hey to everyone my name is Perrie or Perrie Leigh which ever u prefer, people call me both.
