Since you're Canadian, I'm not too upset by this.

Sniper- I'm not against standing up for your country it's the whole fighting thing in itself!
I know that your military didn't start the terrorist but it does take 2 to fight!
Saddam and Bin Laden should have just been euthanized (to kill to relieve suffering)at birth!!

@guapisimo,

You're reason was that men in the military had the urge to kill. Not correct. We're just like everyone else. Whatever their reason for enlistment in into the Armed Forces, I have yet to meet anyone who said he joined to kill other people. What it boils down to is survival. You place these guys in harm's way, and they'll do what's necessary to survive. If they come across innocents, soldiers who have surrendered, etc... It's live and let live. They get shot at, and they defend themselves. Simple.

You may think they're misguided. Perhaps they are. But I think their intentions are noble, and their actions, honorable. I've never had one bad thing to say to those who attack our governement policy regarding the war. But to attack those who want only to preserve our way of life is worthy of rebuke.

Hello, yes I could date a man in the military because first military men are so sexy.....
mentally...physically....they are are intelligent...gentlemen, curtious, gentle, wise, can hold a decent conversation, they are very respectful, and to me I think they deserve the best a woman can give them... and I could date a military man because Im a very faithful woman..I dont cheat and I dont believe in it.. I feel If im lucky enough to be with a military man he deserves my faithfulness to the very end whether hes gone for a few months or not... maybe some woman cant or wont be faithful but I am and could be. I have never cheated on anyone and I never would be... thats childish, rediculous behavior.. and I just dont believe in it like I said..... thank you

Sniper you are so very right. As a ex Navy wife, no we are not divorced due to infedelity, I saw so many "WesPac Widows" it wasn't funny. I never was able to understand how they could do that to their guy when he was either training to protect or actually protecting them. Being a Military wife/girlfriend is one of the, some would say is the hardest job in the military. Cuz it does take a strong woman to live the life. But I tell you what, after living the military life for 10 yrs, I would do it again in a heartbeat. I think alot of women don't realize just what their job entails when their guy ships out. They need her support and faithfulness more than anything else. They work long, hard hours and are often in dangersous situations which means the last thing they need is to be stressed out or worried about what is happening back home. Just my 2 cents. But for what its worth, I admire each and every service member out there. We need you and we do truely appreciate all the hard work you do.Thanks!

Sorry, but I very much disagree with you. I truely don't think its women sniper dislikes so much as unfaithful, unsupportive, uncaring women who don't care enough to be faithful to their guy when they are having to do the job they are trained to do. Until you have actually been in these guys shoes and seen what happens to them when they get wind that the wife they left back home is being unfaithful or even stressing over everyday life and they can't do anything at all to make things better cuz they are 5,000 or more miles away, you could never understand how devestating and dangerous this can be for our soldiers. Have some respect at the very least.

I'd be more interested in a thread as to how many women could keep their legs together while their men were deployed... but you people carry on with this one.

My guess would be a bit more than the guys deployed actually keep it in their pants.......

For what its worth....I don't think you have to worry about the guys too much. It's not like they have a club to go out to every night. Granted there is down time, but I will bet you anything that the percentage of Military Men cheating on their wives is a substantially less than the Military Wifes cheating. Am I right guys?

well unicorn.. I do have a great deal of respect for the men in the military. the one thing that is never brought up is what they do while away from home! but i guess you probably think that its okay because they are just being men. men and women are unfaithful!! In a perfect world it would never happen,but to judge all women that way, well lets just say burns this girls bacon. sniper made a comment on canadians, as I'm one maybe he should respect that fact.
One thing about us canucks we are loved all over the world.

@widdletezer,

With an average 50 to 1 ratio of men to women, and most of the women being faithfully married... There's not a lot of peeps getting tail. The biggest thing going on over there is the porn swap. Porn's illegal in the Gulf, so you see people smuggling magazines inside Pringles cans, and damned near everyone has a laptop crammed with it. Even folk who are married and deployed together are discouraged from going at it. They say it destroys the morale of the others. It's hardly a scene from "Girls gone Wild."

No actually your are way off base here. I am not dogging women alone. Cheatings wrong no matter what your job is. But put yourself in these guys shoes.

I have a question, have you been a military wife? Have you seen first handed what happens. What stresses the men are put under? I have. Until you have the experience of what really goes on, then how can you judge? I made it a point to know my partners job and responsibility. I went and saw what conditions these guys live in. Granted, things probably are a bit different from when I was a military wife, like you can talk more often now. Back then you had to wait 2 weeks to a month for a letter after not hearing anything at all for the same amount of time, unless they were lucky enough to find/go to a Phone Bank.

I'm not trying to down anyone here. Your opinion is your own, but women really need to learn how hard it is to be a Military Wife. It's the toughest job a woman can have and it truely does take someone strong enough to take on the everyday life by herself. Cause essentially she is a single mom while they are gone. Plus deal with her own stress of being alone, missing her guy, wanting/needing to be held. But she does have a support group to help her, where a single mom doesn't neccessarily have one. It's tough, I know that. That is why they have the support groups. That is why the military is so close knit. Until you experience it, you can never understand. It's a world all of it own.

Email me for a site that has some real eye opening information of what are guys go through. I don't think it's right for me to post it here. (if this is spam, I will delete it)

Sorry, but I didn't pay attention to any Canadian remarks. As far as I am concerned, Candians are Americans. And in some ways smarter too. But that isn't the topic here. The topic was about dating a service member...not just the men either. That is what my posts are focused on.

unicorn.. the military is no different than say a police officer, he or she goes out everyday..all they deal with are scum, the divorce rate in police officers is the highest.I have the greatest respect for anyone who puts thier life on the line day in day out so we all can live alittle better. you see my son has applied to the r.c.m.p. We have loads of friends that are members. I'm well aware of marriage break down.
so your statement that i just don't know is false. I also realize that this thread is about dating a military personal. I don't agree with war but also know that we have to protect our selves. You say that you stood behind your man the whole way,but now you stand alone. For me, I can honestly say I would never cheat on anyone I was with. because thats who I'am. wether he is gone a day or a year.he would be secure in the knowledge I was waiting for him.
ONLY HIM!

I'm also a candidate for the RCMP and been advised of the failed marriages etc.

You need to find someone within your respective organization so that they may
appreciate the stresses you go through. Very few 'civilians' understand
the stresses one goes through in those professions. It all sounds romantic
in the beginning but it is unfortunately something that does not last.

Political comentary aside the question of marriage or dating a military man is a serious consideration. There will be scarey and lonely nights for both spouses. There will be long deployments and strange schedules. Women through the years have been up to this task and I believe it is the hardest job in the military. There are cheaters in the ranks and at home, that's not the issue. It is a job, and for most a temporary or even weekend one. If the person you love is in or is considering going, it is a discussion worth having. I served 30 yrs, 23 active in the United States Marine Corps. I didn't join to kill things but had to. I haven't slept a full nights sleep since. I was wounded 3 times and that is no fun. Spent 2 yrs once getting spare parts and learning to walk again. Even got addicted to morphine. To support and defend the constitution, and willing to give my life. Yeah, that was me...........then. Once in a particularly difficult time in Viet Nam there was this great idea as a Christmas gift. They called it a cease fire. Wow! Fantastic idea. Cease fire.....cease fire. Y'all come home OK? It isn't our way of life and we are not defending anything we as individuals believe in. If it's good enough for America, it's good enough for me.............BS! OK, attack me now, but most Presidents, Senators, and Congressmen are lawyers not warriors. It is not right for 19 yr old boys to hold other 19 yr old boys in their arms and watch them die. My favorite comment thus far is that Guapisimo apologized for our Bush and gave me shivers because she doesn't have one.

I would put everything I own on this wager. Assuming you were asking my ex-wife this. I'm worth US$500,000 dead, add to that social security, free education for her and the kids, and a ton of other benefits. She could handle it.

P.S. And what happened to guapisimo's bush? Did I miss something?
