    Advertisements
    i talk about DB ALL the time. almost non-stop. LOL but DB on the other hand, he doesnt like to talk about "stuff" (hes a really quiet guy in general) bc thats just the way he deals.

    so i was just wondering if im the oddball here or he is

    do you ladies TALK about missing your SO etc, or try to ignore it?

    do you think its a classic man vs female thing?

    I talk ALOT! sometimes I'm not sure how my Mom deals with all the phone calls, but she does it with a smile everytime! I'm so thankful I think it's partially a man vs woman thing though too.......guys just don't talk about emotional stuff much.

    I talk... I wouldn't say A LOT though. Some people just get sick of hearing the same stuff over and over.

    I put other, because the "no" answer didn't quite work for me. When DH is gone I don't really talk about him being gone, but it's not because it makes me sad. I'm not sure why, I guess I shoulda been a man.

    When he is gone (training, deployment) neither of us talk a lot. it is often a struggle to make conversations last.

    Neither of us like to talk about how much we miss each other because it makes the other person sad and feel bad... and he doesn't like to talk about his job, especially now that he is deployed.... and I just never have much to talk about.

    In person neither of us are very emotional or mushy. When we're separated we both tell each other how much we miss the other and are ok with that

    i put other. bc I would love to talk about it every second of every day which I could do and partially do. but once I bring him up I try to talk about other things. I dont wanna bother my company or by talking about him non stop.

    And also, I feel like they dont really understand so much about the situation. my one friend was comparing her being away from her boyfriend for 2 weeks to me and the DB which hes been gone since Feb. its like come on
