Crush Going Into the Military

Sunday Confessional: My Crush Is Going Into the Military

This week's confession comes from our anonymous Confession Booth group in the TrèsSugar Community. Weigh in with your advice below.

I currently live in South Korea as a foreigner. It has been impossible to really find a guy to connect with (language, work hours, etc.) But now, I've finally found someone (a Korean) I can really connect with. We talked for a long time and then went on a few dates. Recently he's told me he is going in three weeks to serve his mandatory 21 months in the military. I think he's wanted to keep it casual because he knew he was leaving, but this news has really crushed me. I don't know if all this is going to end shortly.

There's lots of cool stuff going on in our community — join it, check it out, share your posts or advice in the great groups, and maybe we'll feature it here on TrèsSugar!

21 months? Can you keep in touch? It all depends if he's asking around for that keep in touch, visit me, visit you conversations.

Never give up hope , you always see these romantic stories that are real life and I hope that you get your Happy Ending, just make sure he knows how much he means to you before he goes. GOOD LUCK.

You don't know if it's going to end shortly. -- Yes, it is going to end shortly. Your relationship is super casual. You have put more meaning into it because you are in a foreign land and it's hard to connect with people. The sooner you can accept that this guy is going to be gone for a long time and you may or may not continue to hear from him, and sparsely at that the better. My advice, let this go in your heart. Try to do whatever you can to make other friends and realize this will never be something it's not. The conditions don't allow it.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I can't imagine how hard that must be. Does he get any kind of military leave? Perhaps you can still see each other occasionally if that is the case?
