I fucking despise going out in public in uniform. Attracts way too much attention.
I always make sure that when it comes to receiving compliments from the opposite sex that may interfere with my relationship status I do so in the most appropriate way possible. Just because an individual hands you their number, doesn’t mean you should get all defensive and respond with a “Oh fuck you, I have a girlfriend/boyfriend”. I found that ” Thank you, and I’m deeply flattered by your compliment. However, I am seeing someone.” works fine.
Compliments are nice and refreshing to hear every so often and I try not to fuck up by letting people know that when they give me one.
Doesn’t apply to me.
Quite honestly, not everyone in the military are straight edge goodie-two shoes guys. A lot of them will find a way somehow legal or illegal.
