My husband has barely been gone for a week and I've been solicited for sex twice already.
#1: Within days of husband leaving, some kid I went to high school with that has hair like Fabio and, it seems, has recently found a surplus of self esteem, messaged me on Facebook. His exact words were, "So now that your husband is gone, when do we get to hook up?" My response was deleting his disgusting self from my friend list. Ew.
#2: While buying things for a box to send to husband, the guy that was ringing my stuff up saw husband's dog tags and asked if I was in the military. Very proudly, I told him husband is in the Army and is currently deployed. Upon hearing this, a sly smile creeps across his face and he says, "You must really miss sex then. I could help you out with that, you know." Thankfully, I was done paying and just gave him my best look of disgust as I grabbed my stuff and got out of there.
I really don't understand it. I mean, it happened before R&R too but it was no where near as often as twice a week. It's not like I walk around without my ring on and forget to mention that I'm married. Trust me, I talk about husband every chance I get. So what is it then? Do I unknowingly walk around looking like a super-slut or do military wives really have that bad of a reputation for being cheating whores? I'd like to think that since both guys knew my husband is military, it's a military wife reputation thing. But even so, that is really sad. How many wives have to be out there cheating to give us all this awful reputation? What I know for sure is, I would never ever cheat on my husband. Even if I had to wait a decade for him to come home to me.
Has anything like this happened to you?
