Hi guys! Although I'm not actually dating a Military man, I do need to get some of your advice on a situation I'm currently in!

Last year, I was studying abroad in Eastern Europe for several months and met a group of US Marines in the university I was at. I grew close to three of them in particular and we had a really fun summer together before I returned to the UK and they went back to America.
I was actually in a long term relationship during this time with a guy at home so nothing romantic happened but I became really attracted to one of these guys and the more I got to know him, the more I liked him.

I would say to wait until he gets back to the states and for you to figure out where things are going before taking things further. I think going a step further now and then adding the upheavel of his adjusting from a deployment and you getting situated with your career/school situation can put a lot of pressure on a new found relationship. There's nothing wrong with going slowly, especially with all of the other things going on in your lives.
