I met my guy at work where he and I are both nurses. He works for the agency, so he works in several different areas around the hospital. I had met him a couple of times before when he was working on my unit, but we never had much of an opportunity to talk. One day while he was working with me, I was dealing with a patient who was dying of cancer and the doctors were wanting to try a bunch of different things to try and prolong her life. She had pancreatic cancer and the tumor had blocked her bowels. I had immediately developed a really good rapport with the patient and her family and was in her room constantly. The doctors had ordered enemas to try and get things moving past the tumor. I had asked Dan if he would help me with her and he gladly said "yes." I was struck with his compassion for this woman and when I met his eyes while we were giving this woman an enema......I think I fell in love with him at that moment. I know that must sound strange.....but to see a man who can be so gentle with someone he doesn't even know....just went straight to my heart.

The next day, he was working somewhere else, but he came up to my floor and found me and asked if I had his scissors. Come to find out, he just wanted to see me again and needed an excuse to find me so that he could ask me out. We've been together for a year now and I truly feel that he is my soulmate.

We began having some problems about a month ago and I broke up with him. He seemed to have quit talking about things and I jumped to the conclusion that he didn't love me anymore. (I'm an idiot) I have spent the last 3 weeks trying to get over him and finding that I can't.....because I love him too much. We've talked periodically over the last few weeks, but not about "us." Yesterday we finally had a breakthrough. I found out that the reason he's been stressing over things and shutting himself off was because he found out that he might be deployed to the Middle East and he wasn't sure how he was going to tell me or how I would react. He told me yesterday that his unit has been activated and will be leaving for Iraq soon. He's going to get all the details this weekend.

I made him promise me that he won't ever shut me out again. I told him that I can handle whatever happens as long as I know that he still loves me. I said, "Do you still love me?" He hugged me and kissed me and said "yes" and then kept saying "I love you" over and over again while we both cried.

So our love story is still a work in progress. He will be leaving for Iraq soon and will be gone for a year. I plan to stand by him and love him until he comes home safe. One thing is for sure......we love each other very much and are meant to be together.
Oh Robin, that's so bittersweet!! I hope that everything works out for you two and that he isn't in Iraq for too long!

Chris and I met at the cappuchino bar on Camp Bondsteel, in Kosovo. I was there working as a contractor, he was/is a soldier. We actually didn't like each other when we first met. And yet, he came over to our place to play Uno and watch movies (There's not a lot to do on Bondsteel). We started to talk and hit it off. So we started hanging out, not much in the way of "dating" possible on a base if you're a soldier and not allowed to leave. I could being a civilian, but not him. Anyway, when he left and returned to Germany, we started dating long distance and visiting one another. We got married in May 2003 and I moved to Germany the next month.

I met my boyfriend through his sister. She was marching in the colorguard with me and he was in the WVU drumline. We talked later that night at a band party, and we've been talking ever since. hehe
