Just wondering what some thoughts are on dating ex military men. I've been on again off again with a guy for the past year. We go through phases where we hate each other and are crazy about each other. He just got back from Iraq when we first met. Just wondering if anyone else has experience with it.

I am a military man myself and return from a deployment can be and is a very delicate matter. The transition is extremely volatile and you actions and reactions to the things he does is going to make all the difference. Being over there, in a constant combat mentality and then coming back home to a place where you are meant to relax takes time. Work through with him, even if it has been a while since he has got back, it will always be there, it never goes. How it effected him is different to how it effects me, but in general, be careful with your approach and most of all, be understanding.
Hope this helps1
