Even though dating someone in the military can be incredibly challenging on many different levels, there are numerous reasons why a man in the service could be your ideal beau:1. Nothing says sexy more than someone who is putting his life on the line to protect your freedoms and rights. Let's not pretend that the fact he's probably in the best shape of his life doesn't turn you on. Since your relationship will probably be long-distance at certain points and for long periods of time, communication becomes quintessential. It's not just because the tailored cut of a uniform perfectly accentuates his physical assets.Joining the military is a choice; by serving his country, you know he has strong ideals and is willing to fight for them. The rigorous training he is committed to is part of his daily routine, and you get to reap the benefits of his occupation's strict physical and dietary habits. This means lots of emails, chats, phone conversations, and snail mail. Since he is often in unfamiliar environments, you know that he can take care of himself. The military is all about structure, order and rules. A uniform represents discipline, strength, courage, and fellowship—all traits that make for great partners.I’ve read many posts about how army guys should cherish girls who stays by their side throughout their army life; how girls must understand what the guys go through in camp and be thankful for each other and so on.But I’ve never come across anyone who has written about the perks of having a boyfriend in the army! So on my way out of Alaska, I stop into Fort Richardson Army Base. Control, regiment, hierarchy, and a whole lot of young people in peak physical shape, far from their loved ones, and all crammed together. The darkest aspects of that dynamic that have been in the public eye as of late and it makes me wonder about the full picture.
This is not a bad thing because even though you both spend lesser time together, these times are much more appreciated and looked forward to.
So if you have a serious girlfriend there’s a lot of pressure to get married so they can come along.” I had asked L earlier about her decision to marry B so young. “Female and male soldiers will just arbitrarily get married as like a business agreement to get out of the barracks. I ask why she didn’t have to live in the house with him and B explains that normally in the lower 48 your family would have to live with you, but Alaska is considered overseas.
They had dated for a few years, knew they were in love, and knew B would be going to Alaska. That or they’ll just find some random broad.” L says, “I knew a guy, he married one of his best friends from high school. B says, “But say a soldier finds a random person in town that he thinks is hot I guess, and they want health insurance they can just get married and the soldier gives them health insurance and he gets to move out of the barracks.
“For the people that aren’t marrying just to get out of the barracks, people that are getting married just because they like someone, the whole courtship process is packed into three years.
You meet someone – hopefully early in that time – you get to know them, you date for a while, decide to get married and you propose before you leave so that the Army will pay for them to come with you. She got health insurance; he got to live in a house.” Pretty sweet deal.
