I did once and I thought she was a great friend..We hung out..She came over to our house when her husband was deployed and she spent holidays and birthdays with us. I told her my deepest secrets and vented my frustrations out. She was very supportive. For the first time in my adult life I had a true adult friend..And then her husband came home and though I expected not to hear from her for a few weeks while they had their time, I turned into an email forward recipient, except when he went underway..Then she needed me. Am I being selfish? I understand wanting to be with your husband, but I feel like she was a user. I didn't do that to her when mine went away for his training and when we hung out, it was when mine was home too. My husband even took her 3 kids and my 3 so we could have some time out. So I again remain antisocial and guarded.
