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.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 …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.It even wanted to verify my photo by using my driver’s license.
So instead, I began questioning all the people I was messaging about why they had turned to online dating.
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.
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.
