Dating a military friend

Military men are everywhere, but in many states, they're even more popular than they were in decades past. A survey of more than 4,000 singles in New York City found that just 24 percent of married couples considered themselves military.

So, to keep your military buddy safe, and your life together, don't feel so guilty about being single.

"People think single chat online it's like a dating site. It's not," says Kelly, 35, a former Marine with a tattooed torso and pierced earlobes. "I'm not going to go anywhere if I don't have a guy to take me." Kelly has chatroom irani been with her boyfriend for three years. "I know that I'm not the best at being single," she says. "I just don't know what to do." Kelly says she'd like to get married someday, but not for "another couple months." She says that prison pen pals georgia being single is a personal choice, not a dating tool, and that she's never been single before. "I guess you have to get out and do it."

Kelly and her boyfriend, Andrew, 35, of Franklin, are both Marines. The couple met while he was a private in the Marines and her in the Navy. Kelly is a "firm believer in monogamy," she says. Andrew is a bit more "unconventional," he says. "We both kind of go into things blind." But they'd like to have kids, and there's nothing like dating a military guy to do that. Andrew isn't sure thailand cupid dating if they should pursue that or if they should be "more laid back and keep things simple." But Kelly says it is easy to date a soldier - he's a lot like her in that regard, though he's a bit more experienced. And he doesn't mind if they're not really in love.

Kelly has been single for almost a year and says the Marine Corps has been great for her career. She doesn't miss it. He's never been shy about letting her know that he's in love with her, either. "I always ask, like, 'How do you feel?' He's always so nice about it, which is very sweet. He knows I'm a girl and wants to be with me because of that." Andrew doesn't mind being honest about it - but he's not sure if that's okay for a woman. "It's not an exact science, and there are times when I feel like I want to keep him a secret, and I want to hold off until he tells me he loves me." Kelly is the kind of guy who's willing to tell you exactly how he feels, or how he feels you should feel. He's also a man who's had his fair share of bad relationships. "I had a boyfriend for two years, and he was really, really good at keeping things between us hidden from me," he says. "When he told me he was cheating on me, I was shocked and I thought he was crazy, so I just let it go." Kelly says his experience with his ex "was a really good lesson about not letting him go to work." Andrew says that's why he won't be leaving his tattooed guys boyfriends alone when he goes off to fight in Iraq. "I won't let him get any work done if he's there, and if we're separated, I won't let him see her," Andrew says. "I know this sounds crazy, but when I'm going through it, it's like, I don't want to do this. I can't. It's not a good feeling." Kelly is in a similar situation. He says he's been seeing his boyfriend at home for six months. He's been "pretty good" about not talking to his ex during that time. "But this is when I can't stop thinking american single girls about her and worrying about her," he says. "I mean, you do see her every day, you know?" He can't see her at all on weekends or vacations, and she can't go anywhere alone. "It just makes me want to hide. Like, I can't even do it."

But Kelly, who is still very much in love with his girlfriend, says he doesn't want to live that way anymore. He doesn't want to go through the trouble of breaking up with her. "I don't want to be the guy that says, 'She's still going to be my girlfriend," Kelly says. "So if I find someone, I'm not going to make that the thing. I'm going to move on."

I'm reminded of this from having a boyfriend in the army a story from 2014: "One of the men in our group had been single for 20 years, and had already given up trying to get a girl. But he'd finally met his soul mate, a woman who wasn't only his girlfriend but also his partner." The guy in question, who was single and dating his soul mate, said: "It's the same thing with being single. You have to move on. I'm not really looking to start dating again and I'd like to get some more time to focus on being a better friend.

"If there are still any girls out there looking for a guy with whom they can be friends, it's good to know that I'm not a girl, and I'm not looking to start dating."

In the same article, another single man explains: "I've got nothing going for me in life. I'm 25 years old, I've had a decent amount of success in my career, and I've been with a good woman for the last three years. That's it. I'd rather not be dating at this point."

These guys are looking to get back into their marriages, because they're tired of all the drama. I find this sort of attitude pretty typical. They don't see what the big deal is. They're not even looking for someone to "help" them.
