Helpful Tips that I found online

 Here are some tips to get you through those tough, lonely times:

1. Don't try to change him. He's going to be a firefighter and there isn't really a lot you can do about it. He will be dedicated to his mission as a member of the fire department. It's something that you have to learn to around.

2. Get some hobbies of your own. The more you sit around waiting on him to come home, the more chance there is of you getting angrier by the minute. Go shopping or visit friends. Do something that you have wanted to do for a long time and have put off.

3. Get into your firefighters head. The more you understand about what they are doing the more you will love and respect him for it. They are a rare breed and you should treat them as the gem they really are.

4. Be happy that they are at the firehouse. I know this seems like a ridiculous idea, however, would you rather them be out drinking or with other women? I would much rather have fire as his mistress than another person.



5. This is the most important thing of all. Every time your firefighter goes out the door on a call, do not roll your eyes or get mad at him for it. Give him a hug and kiss and tell him you love him. You never know what might happen when they are out there. What do you want to be the last memory of you together? Besides which, do you really want them to have something bad on their mind when they are getting ready to go into a dangerous situation? Getting angry with them only makes their job more dangerous because they are then worrying about you instead of focusing on their job.
