After a week on this site with seemingly no coherent mail, I quit it too.
As a result, most of my interactions came from Military
minus the guys that were just looking for nude photos, of course.
After a month of mostly trivial conversations about the weather, what it’s like to live in New York, and if I would consider getting a Kik account, I can now say 100% that military dating sites suck.
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 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.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.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.The exceptions are barely in their 20s and typically looking to interact on a free mobile messenger app called “Overall, my experiences with the sites were varied, with one emerging as a clear winner.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.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.
