I did meet my girlfriend online, but after a year of painful struggle, meaning hardly any dates despite being educated, employed, and reasonably attractive.Friends of both genders tell that their experiences have been hard in different ways.Aside from my own luck and the trendy radio ads and sexy commercials, it seems as if no one’s happy.Dear Geoff, Glad to hear you found someone special, and even happier that you spoke up.He has been telling her that he will be coming to see her when he can get a leave.Also, she should be getting a verification number shortly from the base , and then she will be gettting his leave money as he has put her down as his next of kin.
Is there a way to find out if this person is really in the Army? Also, almost every post in Iraq and Afghanistan has MWR phone lines available where the soldiers can call home at no charge.
this money will not be in a cheque form as the army has to be careful of fraud.
therefore they will be using western union for the transaction.
There is also no reason for you to request for him to get leave. The Army is not going to recognize a leave request from a civilian. In almost all cases, he has access to the internet as well as phones through the MWR in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
In other cases that I have been informed of, the request is typically granted and then an outrageous amount of money (in the thousands) is requested to purchase a flight. We have beem talking for quite sometime now and he says he’s deployed to Afghanistan and will be going to iraq for 3months so he will not be able to chat online. They wrote back saying I should subscribe with a fee of 524. Depending on where he is, he may not be able to call very often but it would be very unlikely for it to be completely impossible.
