  • Take it from a guy that was once in the military and had a girlfriend or two. You will need to get used to the idea of him being overseas and away and not seeing a whole lot of him. The obligations and responsibilities of military life are ALWAYS going to take priority over everything else. He has to do what he is told when he is told to do it, no questions asked. He will rarely have a choice in what his duties are. Scenarios like you and him making plans to go out for your anniversary when he gets home (if he's fortunate to be around for it) but he has to stay late because he has to do paper work on a douche bag that crashed his car into another car driving drunk are going to be fairly common, what he does is not just a job but a full time commitment. Your not going to understand why he has to do the things he does in the military and it's probably going to frustrate you. Not to say that something can't go somewhere with him but you need to have the right expectations if you are going to have something going with a military guy.

    • Why do you say that?

    • 1. Guys are loyal to the military, not to you. The military teaches them that.
      2. A lot of willing girls in many of the countries they invade..often poor, willing to be taken advantage of.

  • Well he's not different from any other guys, just his job is.
    If ti's something long term be sure to know what you're getting yourself into. There's a lot to know about life in the military, but you'd have to do that research yourself
