Dating a man from the Military is kind of tough. Look, I am definitely not . Does having your own life help you get your ex boyfriend back? (Oh, and FYI this was. You might be doing a great job of blending in to your civilian surroundings, but your walk is always going to give you away. Military personnel. (Author's note: obviously warriors can be female -- like me -- and family can be male, but for clarity's sake I will write assuming a male soldier and female family.) .

His way is the best way because he knows best. You need to understand this and realize how difficult it is. Recognize the invisible wounds. Not every soldier comes home with post-traumatic stress. However, for those who do, there is nothing wrong with that. Just keep in mind that the chances of him wanting to open up and talk about it — let alone seek help — are slim to none, at least at first. This will be trying for you, but imagine how he feels. Expect sleepless nights, and bouts of being on the receiving end of awkward silences.
You need to try your hardest to understand, get him to eventually talk about it preferably to a professional and pretty much avoid all triggers — like war movies. Enjoy the fun facts.
Yup, text messaging is out and if text messages are out due to poor cell service that means that phone calls are going to be out too. Honestly the only thing that you can use out of the regular four tier strategy is the last part, a re-connection in person but there is a big downside to that. So, what do you do?
I figured we would use the same four tiered graphic since that is what we are used to already. Ok, so lets talk a little bit about this. As you can see there are four parts to this new strategy. I am going to go through this strategy and explain it to you until you understand it so well that you are sick of reading about it. Ok, lets start with part one of the strategy.
Her business started succeeding…. She started hanging out with more friends… All in all her life was going well… So, the question that this woman had was, Does having your own life help you get your ex boyfriend back?
Oh, and FYI this was episode 3 of the podcast. After all I have seen and learned here at Ex Boyfriend Recovery I can honestly say that having your own life or improving your life does have a positive correlation to getting your ex back. Now, what do you I mean when I say that? I find that interesting because the way that I teach the no contact rule almost lends itself to self improvement.
Oh who am I kidding. I am pretty blunt about the fact that during the time that you are actively ignoring your ex you need to be improving yourself. Again, I explain this in more detail here. You see, in my mind there are two big benefits to a regular no contact rule. By ignoring your ex you increase the chances of having him miss you. Now, since your ex boyfriend is being shipped away to some foreign country where he might not be able to use his phone until he is stateside that pretty much takes care of the no contact rule right there.
However, the huge difference between this self imposed no contact rule and one that is imposed by a woman who is trying to get her ex back in a general situation is the fact that the no contact rule will probably last for more than a month. Heck, it may last as much as six months to a year. Well, after you finish crying lets do something with all this time. The chances that you and your ex will eventually talk to each other again at some point are very high. Did we get that all out of our system?
When the two of you do eventually come face to face I want you to be at your best. I want you to have interesting things to talk about… I want you to make him laugh… Smile… Oh, and above all I want him to be captivated by your looks. Men are really big on looks. In fact, I am writing an article right now for my other site, Ex Girlfriend Recovery that teaches men to become more attractive to women and on it I talk about the differences between men and women when it comes to the looks vs personality debate.
In other words, what matters more to men vs women? Would you like to know what I concluded? Both matter a lot for relationships but one always matters a little more than the other. Personality definitely comes into play at some point but for men it always starts with looks. This is especially true of a soldier coming home after a long time. You have been away from your family, friends and any form of regular civilization for a long time.
Well, coming home your sex drive is going to be going crazy. Yes, I received plenty of attention. Yes, I knew that I could pretty easily sleep with anyone that I wanted if I really tried.
And yes, I still chose to date a man-in-uniform despite the crude, ugly truths that Raul described. Like Thought Catalog on Facebook. So there are usually two polarized groups of females who want to date a military guy: The typical, grew up near a military base and was told she had to have a man, so she would do anything to get one kind of girl, who is also usually the same girl who cheats on her man while he is deployed….
OR The strong, neo-feminist inspired woman, who is successful on her own and is seeking a man who is strong enough to lead her, despite her own capabilities and independence So, whether you fall into the former or latter of those groups, IF you find yourself attracted to a Gen Y military men, here are a few warnings for you, based on my experiences: He is not going to feel sorry for you for trivial, meaningless shit.
I know there are days where you want to burst into tears because your favorite lipstick got discontinued.
