Advice for dating someone in the military
In all honesty it's just like dating in general you are going to find good and bad guys.It just depends on what you are looking for and their personality.Those individuals will be drama and aren't worth your time.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.The best advice is to be yourself and try not to act any differently.However, as the relationship gets more serious, there are definite aspects of civilian-military relationships that are unique.I dated a military man and he really set the bar for how a man should treat me (and women in general).
To be honest, our problems went well beyond the Navy. Just don't make decisions based on feelings you have for someone else. Relationships come and go, but you're stuck with the military whether you like it or not.
Yes if you find a meat head and date you might have issues but if you find a guy that is trying to serve his country is down to earth knows right from wrong then great.
The problem I have found when it comes to men in the military that are real dicks is that they joined the military for all the wrong reasons.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is very treatable; the sad thing is that it is often undiagnosed and untreated.
When untreated, it destroys a person's sense of peace and will erode the bond with their partner.
