Honestly im not sure if this is the section this should be in, but im sorry. Anyway, im currently a poolee, and was wonder if any of you guys had tips on how to make being in the Marine Corp. the easiest on ur relationship. I will be leaving a girlfriend back at home and was just wondering on some tips. Thank you.

My only advice to you is, while you are on the Island don't give to much thought to girlfriends back home. You will have much more to think about.

Have you not been told yet that if the gd Marines wanted you to have a gf, they would issue you one?
Forget the gf, hope she mails a dear john letter and be done with it. Sound advice, whether you like it or not boot.

I've seen too many situations where my Marines married jodie from back home, who just ended up cheating on him when he got her out of the podunk town they grew up in... just tell you it'll be a long distance thing until you get your feet on the ground... then you can see what's up.

Dont worry about it, Jodi will keep an eye on her for ya !
Its only 3months, man...Dont sweat it.
I left a girlfriend back home when I shipped out, when I got home- I sent her on her way...I saw plenty of recruits all teary eyed over their girls- made me sick.
HOWEVER, our SDI made all recruits that recieved photos of their girls, put said photos up on a tack board, some were HOTT !!

You honestly shouldn't have a problem if you built your relationshp on a Emotional basis not a Physical one. Is she really love's you she can wait for you, I know how you feel I hae to go to NSCC BUD/S over the summer(it's not MCRDPI but it is hard) and I will be leaving her but I am not worried because we built our relationship on a emoional basis the most physical we have gotten is kissing. When you grow old and you aren't attracted to her body wil you be attracted to who she is?

So basically.. you have been told the following:
A.) Focus on the Marine Corps. It will take precedence over your girl.
B.) Be prepared for her to be unfaithful. It happens a lot.
Don't worry, you should have no problem once you become a Marine in the girl arena. They just love them Dress Blues. Haha.
