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

Welcome to the board, A! I don't think it sounds ridiculous at all. Having a relationship with someone in the military presents its own unique set of challenges. When they're deployed, they don't always have a lot of time to write. My BIL didn't always have access to an Internet connection, but he would make every effort to send some kind of contact when he could.

You might want to come over to the Military Families board to get some advice. There is a section there for ladies who are dating military men, too. Here's the link in case you'd like to stop by: http://forums.ivillage.com/ivillage/?category.id=iv-rlmilitarywi
