    Iraq

    My boyfriend is going to Iraq in February. It's his second deployment so I know he already knows what it is going to be like, but I don't. This is the first time I've been dating a military guy during deployment. Anyone have suggestions for me?

    Flirting is very hard. I tried showing off my body but nobody seem to look at me. They prefer big butt chicks or huge breast. The max of flirting I do is smiling
