Should I do this?

I just got out of a relationship that totally left me utterly done with life. I knew her for 5 years and all of a sudden it was over... I'm slowly getting over it but I still have relapses where I crave for her again, but I know she won't come back. So I've decided to enlist into the Air Force and do Explosive Ordinance Disposal. Basically diffusing bombs on the battlefield. I know the chances of death are high but that's not the reason why I'm doing it, it just looks cool to me. But I am so depressed. I want to do this job but idk if its cause I want to do it, or if its cause there's high chance of something going wrong... can someone please help?

Never make a decision when you are overcome by any emotion. Wait until you are stable especially when making a decision that can dramatically change your life. You will end up hating her really bad. Focus on your own healing first.

Um i guess its kinda both in ur case . Look u deserve better and if u open ur eyes a little and looked at life the positive way then ppl are gonna be welcomed in your life -- what r u doing now its closing off the whole world u have in front of ur eyes because of one gurl . Everything happens for a reason but god gave u this life and hea the only one who can decide to take it from u . Calm down get easy (:

I doubt you will get into the MOS you are considering because if you want to die from a bomb, you could take someone else with you, and I'm sure that is not what you want. However, if you do go in the service, you will have lots of opportunity to travel and see the world (assuming you are careful about what field you follow.) This is going to be a real learning experience for you, as well as a service to your country. Keep your eye on the goal and don't let a past relationship bring you down or stop your forward momentum.

look man..you stand your ass up and get out of that hole ...defuse bombs my ass. life is all about dust it off and move on my friend. you talking to a guy that has been in 2 marriages...and about lost his mind over a woman i wasnt even married to. my last gf finally got the message across WOMEN COME AND GO that is just the way it is. just be glad and thankful for the good times you had. that is a chapter in your life. its hard these days to even consider forever . to put light on my point....google the % of marriages make it in 2012 i understand 50% of 1st time marriages go down the drain........i dont like the odds....if you want some good advice NEVER let yourself be sooooo in love with a person till he or she holds the keys to your life.....it can leave you so weak you wanna die. im not saying not to love...i am just pointing out the risk...you decide if you want to jump.

Very wise, James. Cynical, but still wise.

if you really don't care if you die, are you looking into the military for any of the right reasons? I 've noticed in your other questions, that your actual focus in the Air Force has changed every time you ask. Are you really interested for the right reasons, or just drawn to the danger? If your recruiter knows of your depression, or you had entertained death in anyway, it may hurt your acceptance. they don't want people attracted, to the possibility of death, or that don't care if they live, because they can become reckless and careless and endanger their fellow soldiers.

I am actually interested I that career field. Grant it I had a shitty week that week but overall I would never let that make my final choice though!! I am not stupid I've had y heart set on the military since I was 5. And yeah honestly I am attracted to danger alittle bit. The only reason I didn't join the marines or army is cause my dad made me promise to get a job that could transfer to the civilian world after. And I don't jump with job choices, when you enlist you have to pick 9 jobs you want and so I am just getting as much info as I can for the 9 jobs. So I'm not jumping around I'm getting as much info as I possibly can for the jobs I'm going to pick. By the way my 9 jobs I picked were:

1) Medical Services
2) Aeromedical Service
3) Load Master
4) In flight refueling
5) Airfield Manager
6) Tactical Aircraft Maintenance
7) Surgical service
8) Health Service Management
9) Air Transportation

So I am trying to get as much info as I possibly can. I am not stupid and would never threaten a person life over a decision due to my feelings and I am not changing my mind constantly!
