Hes never been the type to show his feelings the way I do but when we are together, there is a lot of affection there. This past week (his last wk here) he was very distant.
I did get to see him not as much as I wanted to but he even met my family for the first time (which I think is a big step in a relationship).
Of course, there are a few military girlfriends who give the title a bad name. They take advantage of service members and make poor choices.
He told me the last time he spent the holidays with them was in 2009. (to be distant) This is the first serious relationship I have had with someone in the military so I am a bit lost. He just text me when he was in California getting ready to leave at the airport apologizing that it had been a crazy hectic day and he didnt have a chance to do much since he had issues with his plane tickets. I don't know what he does but military people are very good at building compartments in their heads: this one is girlfriend, this one is labeled job, this one is labeled family, etc. I don't know what he does but military people are very good at building compartments in their heads: this one is girlfriend, this one is labeled job, this one is labeled family, etc.
I remember mentioning this to another wife in passing, and how surprised I was that this build-up seemed harder than his first tour.
I felt like I was at my wits end and worried about going into a deployment in this state.
This could be military community members or civilians.
Establishing friendships and good relationships with others will offer you the support you need to overcome the ups and downs of military life.
