0seandogue 11 years ago I'm afraid that unless the army sees fit to send you on a ten day leave, you're kinda stuck. That's part of the deal you struck by joining the military. I can't say I understand your situation completely, as I am not military (although I've done quite a bit of work in support of the military in the past), but I do understand the tough situation of having an LDR...At some point, you just have to accept that they'll either be there when you come home, or they won't. If things are going South, you might need to grit your teeth and accept that relationships fail, do your job well, don't get into too much trouble, and try to take advantage of the opportunities that the military can offer you (not being snide...they do offer a wide variety of skill training aside from carrying a gun). Many women appreciate military men, and you're quite young, with plentty of time to find a great girl and have loads of children if you do your job well and keep your head down when the bullets fly. As Kiteman suggests, Skype or similar is your best bet. Try not to see the dark side of things when you're talking to her. Let her know you miss her, and try to buck up...Don't be weak or whiny.. Do be tender, patient, and tolerant .Most women I've known are leary of weak men and appreciate tpt. best wishes.
