Is it wrong for me to want to continue looking for a special someone in my life even if I'm going into the military?
I didn't think so, but like clockwork everytime a guy finds out, he stops talking to me.

Every guy's going to be different and it's more of a personal preference. To me, her joining the military is kind of a turn off to me. However, I do know a girl that, even though she's been in the military, I still wouldn't mind getting to know her better. Usually, from what I've found, joining the military has a great affect on people's personalities. This happens the same with guys as it does with girls. No one's ever gone through the military and remained unaffected by it. However, I've also found that a lot of women that leave the military can end up somewhat cocky. That, to me, is a huge turn off. Call me chauvinist or something, but I just like girls that are feminine over girls that aren't. It's just my preference. However, the girl I mentioned before that came out and didn't really seem too affected by it I think is still really feminine (everyone has a slightly different take on what feminine means) and I'd probably still go out with her. If I hadn't seen the end results, first, then I probably would have been extremely hesitant. The military is kind of a mystery box where a person goes in, but you have no idea what's going to come out, at least from what I've seen. Would I stop talking to her? No. Would I possibly lose interest? I might just a bit until I knew what she'd look like on the other side. Would I lose interest in a girl that I had just met if I found out she had been in the military? Not particularly, but I'd be a little hesitant. The military can bring out stuff in people that's, sometimes, undesirable (undesirable for some, but awesome for others) so that's the only real reason I'd be hesitant.
Now, that's just me personally. I know there are a lot of guys, though, that really don't care, much, about it. Also, if you met another guy that was in the military, previously, he'd be the most likely to not have any issue with it. And there are lots of guys that have been through it.0
