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.
I couldn’t tell the difference between live chats, messages, winks, likes, and whatever else was going on.
The interface was so confusing that I couldn’t figure out if the messages were to me, or ones I had sent.
I attempted to reach out to the sites as well to see if they could offer insight into success stories or the number of users, but their representatives said they couldn’t disclose any data about their users. Since I find the notion of paying for online dates a little too similar to paying for sex, I gave up on the site.
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.
just some lonely men who seem to have, as one guy put it, “been used, abused, and cheated on.”In 2015, while I was single and living in Washington, D.
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.
