This story is not uncommon. Let’s give this young man the most positive benefit of the doubt spin possible: He’s cutting ties as a means of self-preservation. LDRs are hard and they’re really hard when you’re several time zones apart. And the worst possible option is that someone else is already lined up. Or worse still, she was unknowingly a side chick and he is putting a hard line down because he’s not deploying, his main person is either returning from deployment or he’s worried about getting found out.

You’re a good Aunt but you have to encourage her to take a little time to grieve the relationship but move on. It’s over.
