I have a question. How do you as a 20 year old guy from Canada know all of this? About military culture not being forgiving with feelings or something setting them off? by the way I served for 4 years as a US Army MP so I know the "military culture". There are all kinds of reasons why he may not be able to open himself up and the military is just one of them. It may very well not have anything to do with his service at all.
@phyllisisabelle Easy, I'm in the Royal Canadian Navy and am a Logistics Officer. Bloody Americans. I've got a military ID if you wanna see. I don't think someone coming from a military that gives out a medal for shooting straight, has any right to criticise me or the fact that my sources are Afghan vets whom I work with everyday. War is hell, and it fucks people up. In Canada we just had a soldier shoot his wife and kid because of this exact culture issue.
Well aren't you special. How did you get commissioned at 20 years old. And read my comment and tell me exactly where you think I criticized you. I just asked you a question and stated that his situation may be something unrelated to the military. And by the way we dont get medals for weapons qualifications. We get badges for the level we qualify at. I qualified as Expert. Bloody Canadians.

I have never once asked him to tell me about stuff he saw in combat and I don't expect him to. I just want to know why he has trouble opening up to me as a person. In order for a relationship to work, you need to communicate what you want, how you feel, etc...
No, women NEED to communicate how they feel, thats not a need for a man.
That's a childish mentality to have. BOTH partners need to communicate.
No thats science
