What to expect when dating a man in the army
You said this is your first time with a military man.
) I've parted with a lot of baby stuff from the girls, and I'll be going through their old clothes soon too.
I’ve never known or been in relationship with a military guy, so this was all new. I endured much of his stress during this time, they actually have a name for it ‘vicarious trauma’ and found it to have effected me greatly about the time he was ready to come home. for awhile there I thought maybe it would patch up. I want to cut it off but feel guilty because he’s a vet.. You’re trying to create not only a relationship out of not much, but he has shown you what he is prepared to give you and you’re asking for more from the man that doesn’t want to give.
So our relationship became long distance as he was in another state preparing to go to war. Your needs aren’t getting met and you hate how he treats you.
And let’s be fair to this guy, he didn’t force you to do these things and I think that you have spent a bit too much time reading about being one half of a war couple that you’ve got carried away with your role.
If you don’t know what you are to him, it’s unlikely that you are anything much.
