Dating a guy in the marines
There are some extremely good guys in the Corps, but there are also extremely good guys who are not in the military at all, just like there are douchebags everywhere. Life is not like An Officer and a Gentleman and you are not Debra Winger! Your household goods are scheduled to arrive while he is gone. I know there are women out there who want to date a guy in the military. The tearful partings, extended separations, passionate returns. He is not going to swoop in, in uniform no less, and save you from your dreary life! You, your toddler, and husband move across the ocean. You are going to mainland Japan for training for a month! You’ll get to supervise that (and good luck, they might not speak any English) while keeping track of your toddler and then you’ll get to unpack it all. It isn’t that he doesn’t want to do it, it is that he is forbidden from these actions while he is in uniform. Marines are subject to deployment with very little notice.When she is out on a deployment, your Marine may not be able to communicate with you very often.
He called me (he left an adorable voicemail that I got while at a dance recital) and I was so nervous!
Maybe you just met this person in the military and are curious about the “what-ifs” that come with the relationship.
Perhaps you are already dating someone in the military but want to know more before making a serious commitment.
You’ve read my posts about for an army girlfriend, navy girlfriend, or military girlfriend.
There are certain things that strong military relationships have.
As far as the Marine Corps side, if he is in a nondeployable unit, then he won’t deploy. He may have a regular day job with the occasional overnight duty or he may work shifts.
