Dating military man tips comscore media metrix online dating
When someone claims the only people who join the military are people who are not smart enough to attend a university, I bite my tongue and squeeze my fists and think of all the fascinating, intellectual and educational conversations my partner and I have shared, all because he has seen the world and I have simply studied it.
He insists on occupying the spot that allows him to survey who is coming and going into the restaurant or bar or whatever establishment we might be visiting.
He refuses to have his back turned and is constantly on somewhat of a “look out”, even if he’s in the middle of a double bacon cheeseburger and a pint of delicious beer.
I’ve learned that being on time is necessary and absolutely expected.
I’ve learned that we are so quick to say we care about our military members and military veterans, but that’s a heavy dose of lip service followed by very little action.
And most importantly, I’ve learned that while I had no intention of ever dating a military man, I am so glad that I am, and I am so thankful that my son will grow up knowing that his father was a soldier for the country we call home, long after he took his uniform off.
Plus, men in uniform are passionate about what they do because they know it's important – stopping crime, saving lives, protecting people – so they'll understand your passion, too.
