Ptsd dating veteran
“I love you” might be all you’re going to get sometimes. Know this – if your veteran is there with you and trying to make your marriage work, he or she loves you more than words will ever be able to express. On that note, if you’re a stay-at-home caregiver and/or parent, please note that your spouse can no longer be expected to be your sounding board at the end of the day. Talk through your day’s frustrations with someone else. For example, in an argument he or she says that you don’t clean the house well enough.

Trying to decipher the intention between those blue i Message bubbles and bugging my (incredibly patient) friends to help me analyze.
And as it has happened more times than I’d care to admit – we never did go out again.
Someone would start with something said at one end and the message was passed on until it reached the end.
Invariably, along the road, those precocious little mouths and ears turned a simple, normal, innocent phrase or sentence into some twisted, weird, humorous concoction that often had you giggling for hours!
