Recently, I read a really interesting piece by Raul Felix about the Generation Y Division that inevitably existsbased on those who entered the military versus those who went to college.
It further resonated with me because although I first went to college, I also worked in contingency operations in Bagram, Afghanistan from Yes, I was objectified. Yes, I received plenty of attention. Yes, I knew that I could pretty easily sleep with anyone that I wanted if I really tried. And yes, I still chose to date a man-in-uniform despite the crude, ugly truths that Raul described. So there are usually two polarized groups of females who want to date a military guy:.
The typical, grew up near a military base and was told she had to have a man, so she would do anything to get one kind of girl, who is also usually the same girl who cheats on her man while he is deployed….
The strong, neo-feminist inspired woman, who is successful on her own and is seeking a man who is strong enough to lead her, despite her own capabilities and independence. So, whether you fall into the former or latter of those groups, IF you find yourself attracted to a Gen Y military men, here are a few warnings for you, based on my experiences:.
