How to find a boyfriend in the military
I'm 22 years old, and this is my first time being in a relationship with a man in the military. He just got back from Afghanistan and decided that he wants to be married within the next two years. I've heard many stories of soldiers being unfaithful, and I was wondering whether I should be concerned, with him being only 21? We are already nine hours apart, and I plan on moving my son and me closer to him. Will that help at all? I promised myself to start being more open and honest with everyone who writes to me.

How to Meet a Single Military Man
If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! And I do mean, girlfriends. This short series of posts is written directly for my readers, who email me each and every week, sharing their struggles. This amazing group of young women always refer to themselves as a military girlfriend. Time and time again, I hear their struggles and it causes me reflect on my years as a military girlfriend.
Even though it was only a few short years ago, it feels like forever. Our lives are different now: We live in Japan, we have a toddler and a baby on the way, and I work from home running my own business. So if you find yourself filling the role of military girlfriend, you are not alone.
You are among friends who understand these exact problems…. Separations are a part of life, but they are heavily prevalent in military life.
Many pre-marital military relationships experience long-term separations over a long geographical distances. This creates a difficult scenario for young relationships to even have the chance to survive. Sometimes it even feels a little embarrassing if you need to get a base pass. Standing in line with your significant other each time you need to get a vehicle pass starts to feel a bit unwelcoming.
Thankfully, you only need this on rare occasions when you need to drive on base alone to meet him somewhere. I do understand now why only service members, retirees and family members are allowed to make a purchase.
A Power of Attorney is a powerful thing and should not be granted unless absolutely necessary, but there is a time and place when a Power of Attorney is necessary in a non-marital relationship.
I cannot think of another profession or community where legal marriage and legal rights are such a prominent part of everyday life. Because legal rights are at the forefront of the military community, you often consider just getting married already. Things like deployments and PCS moves weigh heavily on your decision to marry. In any other profession, this is typically not the case. If you are a military girlfriend and your service member receives orders to PCS, you are forced to decide stay or go.
If you go, you are uprooting your life and picking up the tab for it. If you stay, you create a challenging long distance relationship scenario OR you end the relationship, which is challenging and sad as well. Many military girlfriends come and go in the military community. This is one of the reasons why the title of military girlfriend seems to carry the transient label. It feels discouraging some days. Many of those in military relationships choose to marry young, some only months into their relationship.
I can only imagine feeling transient plays a huge role in couples marrying quickly. Whether you are a military girlfriend years or months into military life , I applaud you. It is challenging, and I know you are filled with immense strength, heart and determination to carry the weight. The road of military life is rewarding, yet filled with ups and downs, and your time as a military girlfriend will prepare you for all that is yet to come.
I write about my crazy parenting adventures, discovering happiness in motherhood and navigating the ups and downs of military life. I spend my days re-heating coffee while chasing my kids around the house. Hang around for a bit and join the fun! How do you stay faithful? And so on and so on. Some days I just want to cry, it hurts when people ask me questions like that. This is so me. I am going to college right now and my boyfriend got deployed.
We have been together for 4 years now and still going strong. This entire post resonates with me on such a deep level. I get a lot of questions from people in college with me, regarding the temptation of other guys, or how I handle not being able to see him so often.
He is being deployed soon. This is the first deployment I am going through with him. How I will be strong during this time, is unfathomable to me. He is really my everything. I know I can do it, and everyone keeps saying the time will pass quickly. But if anyone wants to chat or give me any advice it would be greatly appreciated. After 12years of marriage, me and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me and moved to California to be with another woman.???
I felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again.??? Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, I was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help get ex back fast.???
So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a Love spell for me. So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and the kids. Mack is real and powerful spell caster who i will always pray to live long to help his children in the time of trouble, if you are here and you need love spell?????????? This was such an amazing post to read!
Talking is an absolute blessing and only happens rarely but when it does, it brings me out of some dark stuff. I had a decision to make: should I break things off and make it easier on myself? Or should I stay with him because I think I can take him going away. I love Dustin with all of my heart and the pain and frustration from being separated will all be worth it in the end.
How often are you able to talk to him? I have never felt so alone in my life I literally carry my phone around. Hi sweetie, I have the same problem and look him online on Facebook but always think how much he loves you and maybe he had a bad day … or try to talk with him and clear the thing… I hope I can help you.
My boyfriend is being deployed in July and although it is months away I know it is going to come soon. It has come up recently where we talked about how I am going to deal with his absence when I leave. Seeing other woman blog makes me feel relieved knowing many can relate.
Knowing he is National Guard part-time, deployment can happen anytime of course. From being raised in San Antonio almost my entire life to starting a whole new chapter in another state? Huge changes I shall say. I am a military brat myself. My parents divorced when I was younger, and I ended up living the rest of my timeframe down in San Antonio.
I have faith and trust in every move I seek to make with him especially when we plan to take our relationship into marriage and so forth. Being a military spouse is a huge sacrifice, and I applaud their relationships, because men have woman who are strong-willed emotionally and will do as much as they can to take care of what was promised.
My boyfriend has yet to deploy but we have communication issues already. He works on base. BEing as though he does get free time in the evenings the least he could do is call. Good day Jazmone. I am currently a deployed male Soldier and I am going through some ups and downs with my girlfriend and our relationship.
We dated for a while and tied the not for my B-day on 28 December She is completely new to the Army life. We just made one year on 19 October Ever since July the communication has been very vague on her behalf. Before me deploying she would demonstrate the tender loving care and write letters to show that she cared for us and the relationship. Now almost completing my deployment there has been many changes on her behalf. That makes me feel some type of way as a deployed Soldier.
I love and care for her passionately. In completion of our one year anniversary I prepared a cake for her which was delivered by her best friend. I did not receive a thank you via text or anything on her behalf. It is hard not to hear from the person you deeply care about and can become frustrating at times.
As my mom always say have inner strength and have faith. You hang in there Jazmone. I feel the same way My boyfriend is leaving for the army and basic on July 6th and 7th and we have only been together for 3 months we talk about this a lot but I know this will make our love stronger and will be faithful and loyal while he is gone.
I always told myself that if I ever started dating a military man I would make it and be strong for the both of us!
My boyfriend is about to go on his 3rd deployment my first as his gf. Which makes me really sad, and upset that they would say such a thing! It will be easy to stay faithful and strong because everything will be that much sweeter when he gets home!
Gillian, you are going to make it!
