I felt like I was at my wits end and worried about going into a deployment in this state.
She simply smiled and said, "Let me give you a piece of advice, honey.
When it comes to tips about loving a service member, nearly ever wife agreed, that getting yourself moving and keeping yourself occupied were key.
Marine wife Meghan Lee recommends, "Find a hobby, or something to invest yourself in, to keep busy while he's deployed." Military wife Bobbi agrees.

4) I can't speak for everyone, but many of them marry young. I do not think he is reluctant to communicate because he is a solider but more so because he was ditched by people who ditched him for his life's choice of work. the only way to communicate with them is to be very direct and let them know where I am and what I want?

I'm not a soldier so I can't comment on all of your questions, but I went to a big ROTC school and most of my friends are in the Navy or Marines.I've always avoided dating soldiers because I'm not really the long distance type of girl... we're only in the beginning stages of dating and it's going so slowly I don't know how to interpret anything. guys in uniform just make it ridiculously complicated, so I was wondering if any of you could answer some questions/ give me tips? (I know that their job is always the first priority.) 4) Do they have commitment problems? The do not really get to decide if they are going to do something or not like go on deployment. How you would figure on the list of priorities would be how is relationship you have together?but I've met a man that makes me want to try, despite the distance. 1) Can they really not contact you at all if they're out doing field training?

Some are scared of being hurt because they are gone so much.
