Anonymous asked: to the girl not wanting her man to deploy - tell him and be sure he listens. as a milso, you have to be accepting of the things he cannot help because that is part of the job, but in a relationship, HE NEEDS to consider your feelings when it comes to things he can CHOOSE. you choose to consider HIS feelings every minute you wait faithfully for him, and he owes you the same.
blatantlyblunt asked: For the anon who doesn't want him to deploy - The shitty part of being a mil SO is you're supposed to help/support their career and the things they want to do, no matter what. Doesn't mean you have to be Lil Miss Hooah Go Army 100% of the time. I'ved asked my bf: "Do you want me to be HAPPY you're gone? That would mean something's wrong." It helped him see...
Anonymous asked: to the girl not wanting her army man deploying; it's normal to feel that way and to be afraid of life without him, but it's part of his duty and job as a serving military member, and a huge reason they even join to begin with. if you're not prepared to deal with him being gone, you may want to re-think your relationship with him. you may not be cut out for a military relationship.
Anonymous asked: To the anon who doesn't want her man to go: tell him!! Yes, he has an army career, but if you two have a relationship and are life partners, what you think should matter to him and should be just as, if not more important than being in the army.
vickytorious asked: For the girl who has hesitation about asking her man not to deploy - DO IT. I know tons of guys who would be willing to change their minds or make the safer choice if someone showed they cared enough to speak up about it. Sometimes, they feel that deploying again is the most meaningful thing they can do, until someone speaks out and says that they mean so much to them that they can't stand by...
Anonymous asked: To the anon who doesn't want to let her "army man" (not sure if bf or husband)" deploy with a different company: In my opinion, this is the order his priorities should be in: 1) Army 2) Relationships and everything else. In order for him to have a successful Army career, he shouldn't be influenced by outside factors. It's not fair, but your relationship...
Anonymous asked: hey ladies! I need some help. My army man mentioned to me earlier that he could switch to a different company to deploy with them instead of staying in the states. If he wants to do that- I dont want to hold him back, but I also dont want to let him go. I do want to talk to him about this again but what would you guys say?

raaychh asked: For the anon wondering about mail. Usually there will be a mail cut off date after that no more mail. For my husbands last deployment it was about a month and a half before he came home.
Anonymous asked: I'm in a bit of a dilemma. My sailor is stationed in California. I live in Florida. We are not together right now because of the distance. I graduate from high school next year. I know I'm going on to college, but I don't know if I should stay in Florida for school and go to him whenever I can? Or if I go to California and live with him and visit my family for holidays? I really...
Anonymous asked: I was wondering when someone is deployed and their deployment comes to an end when do you usually stop receiving letters from them? I write to my friend overseas and I haven't heard back since early March. I don't know if this is normal or not? Thanks!
Anonymous asked: Ok so I'm freaking out right now. My boyfriend is currently in Afghanistan, he's a bigger base making his way back to his normal smaller base. I looked at his facebook messages earlier (bad, I know) but I saw one from his Sergeant that said that there has been IDF for the past 6 days straight at the base my boyfriend is going back too. For those that don't know (including me until...
thewordsofclayton asked: Not really a question, just a rant. My wife and I got in an argument just over Marine Corps crap basically. All day I've been trying to talk to her to make an apology or anything and she hasn't said anything to me all day. I offered dinner and she went to the MCO club. I know she'll get over it and shes just being obstinate, but it's frustrating -__-
blatantlyblunt asked: For the miserable with him anon - if you want to make it work, and nothing is working, try something new. Buy a couples' book. Go to therapy. Take the 5 love languages quiz to see where you two are the same/different. If you want to TRY, then try. If you feel like nothing will change, then leave now. There's no point in staying because it's GREAT but only 10% of the time. That...

With the way things are today, everything revolves around the internet! I was worried about what other people would think until I just had enough, and told myself- all that matters is what I think and what HE thinks! Everyone who cares about you will be happy for you guys NO...
Anonymous asked: Not a confession, but the Marine Corps ball is in 5 months, can anyone recommend any sites to get dresses at?

Anonymous asked: to the girl who met her so on fb. i met mine on fb and he drove 6 hours to meet me and my family and at first my parents were skeptical about us and called us an "internet relationship that would never work." now we're engaged and my family loves him.
godsticksandscissors asked: Hi my name is Amber I've been with my sailor over a year now. This blog is beyond helpful, can I be added to the SO directory? :)
