Why won’t his family give you the address?

If you haven’t received any letters from him asking about your letters and his family won’t give you the information, it sounds like the relationship is over……

I don’t understand, aren’t there phone calls that could happen…? I agree that if there’s been no contact at all, probably means it’s over. If he wanted to contact you, he would.

TheGridMonster:  in training there is usually no phones. That’s normal.

TheGridMonster:  If I remember correctly, phone calls come after basic while they are training for their chosen job. Until then letters are the only means to communicate.

TheGridMonster:  depends on the training. My brother has been in 14 yrs and there are many times shell he out of touch for months because of training, even from his wife and kids.

cheyanne.lawson:  you can contact the red cross and tell them what’s up and they’ll get a letter to him. You can also call command of the post and they’ll get a letter or note to him. Neither will give you his address but they will get into contact with him. Good luck.

Ckasnoff:  tksjewelry:  Fair enough. That said, I still think that if he wanted to get in touch with his SO, he would find a way.

TheGridMonster:  that’s what I said in my first response to OP….. She needs to stop blowing up his Facebook and the family and let the cards fall where they may.

I’m confused, you guys are dating or aren’t? If you’re not, I bet he doesn’t want to get in touch. I had a friend who would make sure he got in touch with me, be it fb, phone or visits when he was able. He would also let me know if he wouldn’t be available to talk and when he would be available again. I mean, he called me when he was overseas and deployed. There are ways. I’m thinking if the family won’t give you the address, he’s not wanting contact. I’m so sorry and I really do hope we’re wrong on that. 🙁

My SO’s brother trained at Fort Benning. He only sent a few letters out because he was always exhausted, and he only got phone time as rewards for short periods near the end. 

That being said, if this guy wanted to write, he would write. If his family thought you should have the address, they’d give it to you. In my experience, families are pretty willing to give out those types of things because the more letters the better for someone pushed so hard all the time. Maybe they were told not to tell you. 

Also in my experience, they definitely know the whole address. He gave you so little info that it almost seems on purpose. 

I would just wait and see.
