There are just certain things you are going to want to know before dating a fireman. In my experience, I had to learn along the way. But at the end of all the calls, constantly smelling his gear in the car and sometimes even cancelled plans, I sure do love my firefighter!

No matter the circumstances, if you have a fireman on your hands, he will jet to the car and be on his way.

I have learned that these nights are not optional. Yes, other people miss them, but not my firefighter.
You will learn the lingo. Structures, fully involved (the good stuff) smoke alarms, cat in a tree (ehh I mean they are fireman...soooo still good stuff).
Which means that you will have to learn, too.
You fold the chairs and he stacks them. And Im talking at like 12 a.m.,1 a.m.
Honestly it's a giant bromance going on and they prey on this kinda stuff.
You'll just be Boyfriend's name's girlfriend.
Next to the bed, in the car, next to your bed, your living room, EVERYWHERE. And even if it's not the real pager, it's the dog app that I can never remember the name of so dog app it is. (Say that really fast to get the full effect).
But secretly they always want to put the firehouse first.
If its an amazing building, you'll have to remember the name. And then you'll have to tell him about it. And then you've just proved number 11 correct. Add it to your list.
Even if the calls are short, they could stay at least another hour washing the trucks and being boys, of course.
Because if you don't, he will. "Got a call, Love you, bye." Mid-sentence is always what you want to hear.
You will cry like a baby and then want to make him quit.

"No it's alright, I'm a firefighter."
From NYFD memorial shirts, a station from where you're vacationing even acquired old shirts of his, you will have started your own pile of station shirts.
You can't be mad because he's doing what he loves and also because a man in a uniform isn't too shabby.
There are a lot more things to know before dating a fireman, but the rest you'll just have to learn along the way.
