Hey Ron, I didn’t say he was an awful army man.
He broke up with no explanation after 7 months and won’t talk to her. I think we can say that’s jerkish behavior.
I don’t know if you’ve ever been a young woman, but many of us dated army men, and we’ve read about 100 letters like this over the years. Men in the army are taught not to consider/carry baggage and emotional ties, yet they still pursue serious relationships with women. I always advise against it. I’m not some evil person labeling everyone. I’m trying to be helpful.
This is her aunt writing in for advice. For them, I think it is easier to label this guy who broke up and wants zero contact with no explanation as a jerk for her to move on the quickest.
