Hey Y'all

I met a guy on eharmony. He is currently on a contract in Afghan. Over the holidays we talked almost non-stop for 2 weeks. Then we started talking less, mostly cos he was busy. The tempo had picked up again at the base. He would come online, we would talk. He would call, we wud skype. But then he becomes unavailable again, sends offline message after a week that its been really busy. This has been going on for about 2.5 months. I really like this guy, and I was at a crossroads and wanted to know what's going on between us. I didn't get a response, but then about a week later I get a dozen long stemmed red roses from him for valentine's day. I love the roses, and the thought, but I would have preferred talking to him to gifts. I still haven't gotten a chance to talk to him. I miss him more everyday. This prob. sounds ridiculous to like a guy

No need to explain yourself :)

If you really seem to hit it off with this guy, and you really like him then you may as well wait for him.

The lack of communication can be because of the conditions where he is located. A mortar can take out a satellite. Sandstorms mess with the signal and then there's also blackouts when there are casualties in the area. Another thing that happens is that sometimes there are long lines for phones and computers, he doesn't have time to wait or only send a quick message. A lot of DA contractors, from what I've heard, have satellite phones. However, signal quality can be an issue. Hopefully this info helps you with insight.
