They can be tough for people in the most exclusive, committed relationships.If you know that you want to be with that person and you’re committed, then go for it! If your whole identity is wrapped up solely in your service member, it is going to be a tough, lonely life.Started in 2006, Military Cupid is part of the well-established Cupid Media network that operates over 30 reputable niche dating sites.
If you’re teetering on the edge of this particular path, think through the lifestyle before you jump in:(And don’t date him/her if you believe that “everyone cheats” during deployment.) Period. (So do people in the civilian world.) But that doesn’t mean everyone does, that we all agree with it, or that it’s even the “norm.” You will be separated from the person you love at some point during their career in the military. It’s okay to get frustrated, be angry, and cry, but you’ve got to pick yourself up and move on.
But don’t let the sole reason for committing to someone be because of a deployment. Honestly, I think these are good things to think about before entering into any relationship– no matter the affiliation to the military.
Don’t ever let yourself be pressured into something you don’t want– it will end badly every time. It can mess with your self-esteem and sense self-worth.
It’s for reasons like this I’d never considered dating someone in the military, but then I did.
It was one of those typical relationships I knew I shouldn’t have began in the first place solely because of the distance, but when we continued talking after he went back to his duty station it just grew into something.
