Dating rules in the navy

When your love is away, you’ll do whatever you can to be available—even if that means changing your schedule. However when he is home, it feels like he has to leave too soon.

Do you have rules for who your kids can and can not date?

Whether you surround yourself with photographs, movies, quotes, or stories about the sea, you’ll start catching yourself missing your boyfriend or husband all the more. You’ll need to keep a “to tell” list, rather than a “honey do” list. Fortunately, the dress can be saved for another date night. You get word that he is being sent to some destination that is far away and you know nothing about it. Pull out your handy laptop and start looking up everything that you can about it.

Marcus Luttrell, the retired Navy SEAL whose memoir Lone Survivor was made into an Oscar-nominated movie starring Mark Wahlberg, does.

Luttrell caused a sensation on Facebook by posting a list of requirements that any potential match to his daughter should meet.

You’re going to have to spend a significant amount of time apart from one another. How many times have you wanted to tell him something you found so exciting, but the moment you got on the phone and heard his voice, you forget everything? Plus it also gives you a little extra time to work on that excess water weight that may have made the dress feel a little tighter than it should. You want to know what he’ll be eating, what he may be interested in doing, the military climate there, and maybe even what the Wi-Fi situation may be like there.

While your friends are rattling their brains with things to have their boyfriends and husbands to do, you’ll be jotting down notes of things that you’ll want to tell them. The moment he calls you, you fill him in about all the things he could do while he is at port. You become much more worldly because of all the map gazing you’ve been doing.

Then she’ll be able to make smart, and hopefully safe, decisions regarding whom she has romantic relationships with, whether she decides to see men or women.

For an alternative list of dating rules, The Huffington Post points to a “Feminist Father” shirt that reads: This is such a better message, because it’s the truth.

Oh, but just imagine the sheer joy you feel the second that you do hear from your love. Of course, this only gives you something to look forward to with your own travels! Fortunately, you can change the subject by telling him about what has been going on with you! Your mind has programmed itself so that you can make yourself available for your partner who may be staying halfway around the world.

It’s a two way street and now it’s his turn to listen! You do this because you want to be available to talk to them, so if they only seem to get a free moment at 3 in the afternoon, but it is 3 in the morning for you, you’ll have an alarm set so that you can talk to them. Haven’t you ever noticed that when he is gone, the time drags so slowly.
