Sheesh, have you ever even read a history book, learned about other cultures, read a periodical that was published in a country other than your own (such as The Economist), listened to BBC radio, or opened up your mind a little? If not, you should start!
You have said you have little to no experience in relationships, and it seems you've led a sheltered life. I think you should focus on your basic training, your job in the Navy, and staying alive. Let the maturity that will come from that guide you in relationships in the future.
Thank you for this wonderful advice, you to monkeystyle!~ ^_^
You are all right, I am like a new born, yes I have read, and heard, and watched all kinds of educational programs concerning everything outside the United States, but I have rarely ever been outside my own houses over the years and I've never stepped foot outside of the U.S.A.~
Perhaps the words you all speak are very wise, worrying and thinking too much over these questions and asking for answers in places where they are not found is not going to help me much.~ You are all RIGHT, the best way to learn about some thing is to EXPERIENCE IT and I will do just that!~ ^_^
Thank you!~ Thank you all for all such wise words of wisdom!~ ^_^
