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 couldn’t tell the difference between live chats, messages, winks, likes, and whatever else was going on.
My plan was foiled, however, when Hurricane Hermine struck the coast and left me stuck at home with my family, where we all got drunk and played a full game of Monopoly. When I returned to New York, I realized that I wasn’t going to get anyone to meet up face-to-face on any of these sites.
So instead, I began questioning all the people I was messaging about why they had turned to online dating.
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.
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.
So I’m a total novice when it comes to dating online, really dating at all.
But I deleted them after about a week, because I could never bring myself to actually go on dates with anyone who swiped right.
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.
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.
