Hello everyone! I'm 19 years old (about to turn 20 years old) and in the air force. I've currently been in the air force for one year and it's been ok. Ever since I arrived at my duty station, dating has been horrible. Most women (civilians) don't want to date anyone that is military. I've had multiple women reject me for this. When you're in the military active duty, 9 times out of 10, it's extremely hard to find a girl that isn't taken. Like if you tried military women, most of these women have already been taken because the military is dominated by males. So, doing an other military member is off the list. Going back to civilians, since I wanted to date someone that is my age, it's really hard to find a girl that is my age to date that is civilian. The reason why is because there are really no outlets to find a girl my age off base. If I was in college, I would be surrounded by them, but this is the military. Dating apps, don't get me started on dating apps, since I live in a very dense military area, which is full of dudes, dating apps are absolutely horrible (probably worse than most areas). Most guys would agree with me on this. I tried sliding in Instagram DM's and it sucked, like 90% of women did not give me a response and a lot of them blocked me because I was just some random that slid in their DM's. The ones that did respond did not want anything to do with me. For example, I slid in a girl's DM's and we talked for a while. We had a lot in common. I asked to her hangout and she responded with "I'll have to see". Which meant she had to see later in the weekend in the plans. Not only that, she also told me that she started seeing this one guy and they went on a date last week and hanging out with each other this weekend. This was an absolute slap in the face when I was told this. After this, I blocked her on everything. It might be because of my lack of experience since I'm a virgin and never been on a date. But, this is me hanging up the towel for a few years (until I separate from the Air Force). Like if you're planning on joining the military and you're a guy going active duty, just quit dating until you get out. It's just bunch of bullshit.
