My #1 Tip for Potential Navy SEALs is understand the nature of your desire. If being a Navy SEAL isn’t the #1 choice for how you want to pursue your life then choose something else. But, if you want to eat, breathe, sleep, fight, and bleed, and you are committed to the training above and beyond all things then this desire will give you a fighting chance.
My #1 Tip for Potential SEAL Wives or Girlfriends is follow your dream. Plan your life goals to be independent of your mate or boyfriend and allow yourself to achieve your greatest dream through your own sweat and dedication. It will benefit you in several ways: 1) you have something to fill your time with what you enjoy and are dedicated to doing, and that sense of achievement can never be taken away; 2) it takes the pressure off your relationship; and 3) having an independent source of income is always useful. In all ways, ‘living the best of yourself’ helps you stay happy and encourages you to continue to grow and succeed.

He murmured in her ear, “Sorry about that.” His first instinct was to be polite and distant, but this contact brought a wave of protectiveness with it that made him even more uncomfortable. He needed to keep his perspective. “I always seem to be apologizing to you.”
“Must be something about me,” she murmured against his chest. Her body changed from pliant to stiff almost instantly. They were locked together for several seconds.
