I was talking to someone the other day and they asked what the benefit was of dating in the military world. They had only read negative things or only heard negative things.
Maybe I’m crazy, a little bit, but I started laughing. I did…. I started laughing.
My first response was “his love and loyalty”.
I kept thinking. God, I love this man. I love him so much. I still get butterflies. Deep in my stomach that make me smile to think of him.
I kept replying on top of that. For me personally: “You know that every muscle he moves is focused on finishing the job so he can get it done and then come home. You know that he scrolls through all your pictures because he is craving your touch. You know that he saves all videos you/he makes because you never know when you’ll hear each other’s voice again. You know that he doesn’t care about anything else besides you and the job. That things become so much more clear for you. For him and things are much simpler.”
I know a lot of my posts are ranting and about past things that may have a hint of anger or resentment in it. I want to let you know that this relationship of mine is the best one I have ever had. Complications? Clearly. Hard times? Obviously. But I love him and I know that he loves me. I know that all the above is true. I know that he does everything he can to make sure I know he loves me. I know things are rough and limited for us. I know this, but we have made it this far. I love him.
I LOVE MY SAILOR. I LOVE MY GUY. I LOVE THE MAN WHO HAPPENS TO BE IN THE MILITARY. I LOVE A HERO. I LOVE MY HERO.
