Here are some things you should know about dating a military man, and how they differ from others. Military men will have many things in common and many differences from other everyday men you’ve dated. While you may not see all of these things at once, it’s good to know what to expect in certain situations before they happen. That way, you’ll always be prepared. Here are 6 things you should know before dating a military man.


They can’t always be your first call

We all want our partner to be there for us through thick and thin. When dating a military man, this is not always going to be an option. You have to keep in mind that most of them work rotating shifts and may even be sent away on duty. So, you have to be prepared to maintain a sort of long-distance relationship.

They seem unpredictable

As much as they want to stick to a schedule and to be at home for all vacations, birthdays and celebrations, they simply can’t promise this. Their working hours are not like those of an office worker who works Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. So, you might as well forget about being able to see him every weekend sweetie.



They have some incredible stories

Exaggerated or not, their war or service stories or stories are exciting to hear. Most of all they will be very proud of their missions helping civilians, unsurprisingly, so be prepared to hear the same old war stories over and over again, especially when you’re out with friends.

It will be pretty mundane

One great thing about the military is that you are exposed to different cultures, places and people. A military man will have a lot of knowledge about other areas and other ways of doing things, so take note that sometimes he may have a frivolous or superficial nature because of all the knowledge and experience he has gained from all his travels.


He is very defensive of you

It is wonderful to have a military man by your side, figuratively and literally. You will find that your own confidence increases every time he takes your side or supports you in something. This is a good thing, so hold your head up high that your guy will have that protective instinct and support you in absolutely all your decisions.

He is disciplined

Maybe in some ways more than others. And even if you think he’s only disciplined at work, you’ll soon see the other areas of his life that are structured, neat and tidy. You’ll never have to think about making a bed or worry about cleaning again because his discipline will keep everything in the house in tip-top shape.
