Dating a man who is going through a separation

Now, this does NOT mean you should boss him around.

He says he doesn’t remember this and I actually didn’t remember this until we were at his parents house one time and he showed me his driver’s license from back then and suddenly that memory came flying back to me. Now honestly I couldn’t rightly tell you just exactly how we met for the second time, the time that was a better experience haha.Truth be told, it’s hard for them to turn this off.That coupled with the stress and exhaustion that comes with Army life can make it hard for him to spend lots of time planning things for the two of you to do together.Hopefully, you have a few close friends who’ll try to understand your new lifestyle.

Get ready to make concessions in this department, for his comfort and for your own mental well-being. Be it baking him a batch of cookies to take back to base, writing him a letter (snail-mail) every week or even every day he’s overseas, or simply shrugging it off when he has to cancel a date last minute because he just found out he’s got an early call the next morning, doing little things that may seem insignificant to you will matter so much to him. When we first got together, I was very skeptical about dating a guy who was going to leave me to start his career. It is my understanding that if something were to happen to me (heaven forbid), he wouldn’t even know about it until someone wrote to him. I joined this site because no one I know understands how hard this is. ***** Hey to everyone my name is Perrie or Perrie Leigh which ever u prefer, people call me both.
