    Hiya me and my bf have been dating for a while now and he's going abroad with his work soon (he can't tell me where he said). I know he's not lying but I'm worried is it safe? Where will he stay?

    Depends where he's going. Odd that he's not telling you a rough location. I mean, he could be going to the Falklands, in which he could either gym or drink himself stupid.

    It's just his flight sergent or whoever not telling him, that's why. He'll be gone for a while like a couple months so where could it be?

    Without sounding mean, nobody can tell you this because he doesn't know himself which country he's being deployed too. If we knew which country then we would tell you more but sadly we don't know. So just trust that he's going to be safe while he's on base and hope things work out well for you both. My ex girlfriend broke up with me while she was going through basic training and I've just passed my fitness test!, so almost there. Sorry getting off topic, we can't tell you until you tell us more but hopefully he can tell you more when he knows more.

    He's in the armed forces, he's never going to be 100% safe - but at the same time, we don't put people into unnecessarily risky situations.

    The likelihood is he'll be perfectly fine.

    You also need to get used to this idea of the relationship is going to last.

    #firstworldproblems.

    The time difference is only 3 hrs behind compared to the guys in afghan who were working 4.5hrs ahead.

    The cinema has been there for almost a decade now.
