I apologize if this is in the wring place I just wanted to know if there are anyone on this forum that are in the same kind of circumstances thanks in advance

finally a good answer thanks yeah I ain't married yet lol she either leave before I get her down the isle lol she works I was self employed work has slowed gcse's are ok but lets face it if a level students are finding it hard I ain't got much chance ain't qualified in anything hence one of the reasons to join she's happy with my decision and understands that we won't see each other as much but will find it hard leaving my wee girl behind but its the end result im looking at. Some soldiers that I know aren't happy and some are but its like any job in "civey street" it would be the same if I was a long distance lorry driver lol

Forget civvy life, when you come home after passing out all your former mates will be civvy no-marks and you'll be fighting women off with a shitty stick. What is the drowning man logo for in your posts?

This,

lol

What's it for?
I believe "lol" is the new term kiddies these days use to say they are laughing out loud. Which means the op is laughing out loud as he is typing the message.

Which seems vaguely disturbing.
