Dating before deployment
Thirding the "grandmother" advice for care packages, plus there's a list of prohibited items online that you can check.
For example, if he's deploying to a Muslim-majority country, you can't send him pork products.
I was even able to drop him off at the airport and stay with him until he had to go.
It also depends where he gets deployed to, where he stays, and what he’s there for.
It's the dating phenomenon that happens when people are too cowardly to actually end things with the people they've been seeing, so they choose to just… In this weekly column, I share a tale of a time a reader was ghosted (with accompanying screenshots) so you can see the last text that was sent or words that were uttered before someone decided to disappear forever. This week we have Jackie*, a soldier who was ghosted by the guy she loved.
But if you've ever been ghosted, know that you're not alone.
' I told him I respected him too much to yell; I was trying to find a solution to this. In anger, I sent him a letter telling him to grow up. I called him out for being cowardly and told him I loved him, but I just wished he could have given me a reason. I ended up getting hurt on the job and came home early…
Then I messaged him trying to pull more out, figuring out why he could go from 'I love you' to nothing. I thought maybe now that I was back, I would hear something. Sad thing is, he was my friend before he was anything else. he must have hit it off with someone and was too scared to say something to me.

And from the beginning of my military schooling, I knew I was going to be deployed. I should have realized the small red flags, but after a battle of back and forth, we finally found ourselves together and saying 'I love you.' That is a huge step for me.Ex: fiancé was deployed for 7 months in the desert, shitty internet, he was always busy up until a month before he came home. Being a military SO is challenging sometimes, specially with deployments. I hope that when he's gone the time will fly by fast and that we'll be lucky enough to at least be able to facetime/skype at where he's going to be at, but as of now we don't know yet.Couldn’t really skype/face time so it was more a phone call every other day for less than an hour or so, if I’m lucky. My fiancé and I dated two months before he first got deployed and I’ll tell you it was really hard! I know it’s hard not to think about him being gone but try to enjoy your time together. He did tell me today though that it'll be anywhere from 6-8 months.My best advice is to stay busy, and be understanding that he’s going to be busy/stressed out a lot. I'm hoping we can communicate well while he's on deployment because he said he could by gone anywhere from 6-8 months and that's really stressful for me to think about :( being that we're also in a new relationship Hey, my bf and I were in the exact same situation!
I'd never dated anyone in the military before and we'd only been dating a month when he deployed.
And as for the deployment process it really depends.
