Dating in the military
Dating someone in the Navy is something you have to be ready to commit yourself fully to.
Most people who date someone in the military are experienced in long distance dating.
Keep up with each other by letter or email.
Phone calls can be expensive and if a military member is constantly moving, you want to be able to keep up and say more to each other than in a phone call.
Buy plenty of phone cards because it will help cut down the high phone bills.
Invest in a web cam so you can video conference with each other, but be discreet in using it.
The soldier's location may not be private and can be viewed by other people. Also, care packages can be helpful as well, but make sure you ask the person you are sending it to what they're allowed to have because the military has strict regulations as to what personnel may receive in the mail while on deployment or transfer. This will help save you time and money sending something that could likely get discarded or sent back because it didn't clear security.
