Dating guys in the navy
I've worked as a civilian for the army, have friends who have served and have dated someone from almost every branch. But still I'm no expert and only have my experiences.In all honesty it's just like dating in general you are going to find good and bad guys.Anyway, I've recently met a very nice guy, and now everyone around me including my parents are warning me and waiting for it all to blow up in my face. For some people the military is an extension of high school. Dating is hard because you don't always know who is a great guy and who isputting up a front.My boyfriend is leaving for Basic Training for the Air Force in January, so he's not quite a "military man" yet, but I'll be honest and say that I'm terrified of it.I'm terrified that he will change, things will get weird between us after being apart, etc., but we both want to stay together and make it work.And I know some military people who are just jerks.
Those individuals will be drama and aren't worth your time.
They will almost always go on a mission rather than stay home.
This is from my own experience as a military kid and girlfriend.
He went from being my partner, to being a sailor with a girlfriend.
When I had a problem, we didn't discuss it as equals, he told me I needed to "be more like the other Navy girlfriends" or "I have the same issues as ____ wife, you should talk to her." What I wanted came second. I had to be okay with the supportive role, and okay making sacrifices because . I should have walked the moment that changed, but I loved him, I was young and I couldn't let go of what I had before.
So my suggestion whenever you date someone in the military, yes be aware they have seen shit or done shit in their life that you probably never will but get to know the person.
