I don’t think it’s that big of a deal, but I’m in a long distance relationship with my former Army paratrooper FH. He’s 8 hours away (we work at different bases) in a different state and we see each other once or twice a month if we’re lucky. So really, it could be worse for you (and worse for me, too!). cherish the time you guys have together and don’t get hung up on plans falling through. i’d call up that restaurant and get a to-go order of what you were going to have (he can pay you back) and bring it to him and just hang out, cuddle, give him that massage… the point is being together, it doesn’t matter if it’s at the restaurant or not. and, he’ll feel totally lucky to have a girl that’d go out of her way like that! i’d make sure he’ll actually be there first and isn’t just playing hookey lol.

Hi MsEucalyptus,

I am new so I am not sure I have a “right” to be chiming in here, but I agree with Ellie.  It is a downer that your original plans fell through, but make the best of it by getting out early and go take care of him.  As you already recognize, with military you have to get used to certain things the same way you would have to with a cop, fireman or even high level business man as a husband/fiance/boyfriend. They all have their own demands on loved ones.    My FH works in business which often requires 12:30 AM nights on a Friday and 1 Sunday a month.  It often changes our plans, but its something that is part of his job for now.

Its a bit of a drive, but if your dad goes into surgery and you want to be there you can still drive home and be there when he gets out.  chances are if he needs surgery they will be quick to send him and you wont be of use to start or schedule for tomorrow and you can be home by then.

I’m sorry your plans were canceled, but he needs you. He is not feeling well and he needs you to be there for him. If your original plans were to leave early and give him a massage, you get home early and give him a massage. This is your MAN, make him some soup and reschedule.
