Dating female love male site online dating services hope idaho

It’s also worth noting that on all three sites, there was really no way to create a geographical limit.

A couple days into my quest for love, I was getting messages from some people who lived five miles away, and others who lived in Germany and Japan.

Still, I held out hope, and then I tried my luck in Norfolk, Virginia, while visiting my parents over Labor Day weekend.

Being the site of the world’s largest Navy base, I thought sheer numbers might result in an actual encounter.

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.

While I found no mobile apps, there were three promising websites: After a few weeks of messaging locals and attempting to solicit dates in the Greater New York City area, I didn’t have much luck.

In retrospect, the popularity of mobile apps most likely draws the use of eligible military bachelors, because unlike these sites, the interface is more friendly and the likelihood of meeting someone is much higher.

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.

Those men who did reach out were often willing to share some fairly intimate personal details.

In talking to them, I learned that a majority of the guys using the sites are in their late 30s, have a few kids, and are looking for a wife to settle down with.

It even wanted to verify my photo by using my driver’s license.

Regardless of age though, none of them ever responded to my attempts to meet in person.
