Dating soldier ptsd
I was going to move to Georgia because that is what had been decided for him. The things I value (independent thought, self-sufficiency, open-mindedness, independence in general) are not the things I saw in military life. However: this is my experience with one man, and it will not in any way fit for every situation.The sexism, racism and arrogance of many military personnel always upset me, but I tried hard to put that aside and enter the Military relationship with an open mind. I try very hard not to create my opinion solely on my hurt, but I'd be insane not to admit that it must color it slightly. But please, please don't make life-long sacrifices without appreciating that there are other options. He cheats constantly, then makes her think it's her fault. He won't take more than two easy community college classes a semester, and usually ends up failing out of at least one.But don't count him out on just the biases of others. I was in a military relationship for 2.5 years, and almost engaged.It created a very difficult time in my life, but I am to this day so so so so grateful that I did not marry that man, as much as I loved him.
Those individuals will be drama and aren't worth your time.I dated him for a year before he enlisted, and then for almost two years afterwards. It especially changed the way he treated me, though it didn't happen overnight.Military relationships seem to be overwhelmingly unequal.They will almost always go on a mission rather than stay home.
This is from my own experience as a military kid and girlfriend.My boyfriend is in the military, and he's not a bad person. He loves his job, and he aspires to be the best he can be for his soldiers. It makes me proud to watch him excel in something that he loves.
