Most Helpful Guy
1. Expect little contact. He will be constantly on the move training and get himself ready for his career. Don't take it personally. In fact, be glad you don't get a call from him every day. That's one way to ruin a relationship.
2. He won't come back the same person. He will have a different demeanor, and he will talk to you differently when he gets back. Beware, most privates also like to showboat when they get back. he might want to probe hes'a tougher man than he was before.
3. Lastly, be prepared to either break-up, or be asked to get married. He's going to learn both the positives of dating and marrying in the military. They will teach him all the benefits (healthcare, extra money, housing, etc), but that will only apply when he's married. So, that means, wherever he gets stationed at, if you want to stick together, you have to be prepared for more long distance (which I don't recommend), follow him wherever he gets stationed on yours and his own dime, or get married so you can be moved to where he is (which I don't recommend if you just started dating).
I was not a Marine, I was US Army for 9 years, but it's all the same when it comes to the military relationships. Feel free to ask me anything if you want.
