You’re better off trying your luck at a local bar, or just quitting the game altogether and signing up for Seamless and Netflix, because what’s better than ordering takeout and binge-watching “Stranger Things”?
Men and women in the military lead busy lives — to say the least.
Not only are they fighting for our country and our freedom, but they can also be away from family, friends, and their homes for months or sometimes years at a time.
They make a lot of sacrifices, which means their dating lives can suffer.
All in all, I probably spoke to about 25 different people.
I realized how lonely they must be, and that this attempt to connect with people online was somewhat of a last resort for a lot of them …
Recently though, I started to think about how hard relationships can be for service members and veterans.
So naturally, I took to Google to see if there was an online service for military dating.
We would have conversations about hobbies, school, the weather, and weekend plans, but no one wanted to exchange phone numbers, or set up a place to meet.
Typically, if I asked for either a number or a real date, I was met with radio silence and never heard from the guy again.
In addition, it wouldn’t let me set my preference to men, so despite being straight, I kept getting notifications about women I might be interested in as well.
Uniform Dating.com, though free, was too complicated to use.
But if that wasn’t enough, there are also military dating sites. C., I tried a few popular dating apps like Tinder, Ok Cupid, and Bumble.
