Everytime I am on a first date women ask about what you do for a living. When it is a woman who is successful and has her sh!t together, and she finds out I am in the Air Force, she loses all interest. WHY! That has to be the absolutely infuriating thing ever.

Hell, I don't care if you are a cashier at Walgreens or if you own Nike. What is the deal? Why do women run from military guys? Any insight?

I on your side man. I'm in the Army. But don't worry about it. I inherited a lot of money but I don't tell any women that. I like to have people form an unbiased opinion of me based on my life not my net worth.

Well the military dilemma is a good one. I just left the military in December. Here is what I found out in that time. It doesn't matter if you are military or not. Trust me, I just realized that I was getting just about the same amount brush offs. It is because some think that the military personnel are unfaithful or will leave for long periods. However the same goes for a civilian job. I have to travel a lot and I get almost the same brush offs. The fact is you just have not met the right one that will be understanding and compassionate towards your career. Maybe you are looking for the ones that are shallow and do not understand what a respectable career you hold. Good luck and keep up the fight. You will get there soon. Don't linger on this for too long because it will change your attitude and become negative. Negativity is sensed even though it isn't seen. Look for women that have some brains!

Hey Chris, im ex. military,Royal Engineers, we got asked out to all the best parties, meet all kinds of people, the officers mess was the best night club in town, the girls loved the gold braid, spurs and big sword.
Hang on in there

I would have to say it is because men in the military tend to be away months at a time. My brother is in the military and just divorced because out of the 3 years he was married, he was home for only 21 months.

Thanks for the insight. I appreciate it.
I didnt know my picture would get people so weary about me. I'll change it. I dont expect to meet anyone on this site either. Pretty much joined to ask this question. . .

Thank you ma'am,
Chris

Granted, I didn't marry someone in the service, but I was raised in the life style. It is difficult. Now older, consider these from a woman's perspective:

1. You go away and you could die (much sooner than most).
2. You move a lot. It is difficult to form lasting relationships with people when you know you're leaving in two, maybe three years. Plus, all that packing, unpacking is not only horrid in itself, but often precious memorabilia is lost over the course of time.
3. You're usually not around your family. For some, this could be a bonus (smile). This often means more if you have children.
4. Hate to say it, but here it is: Unless you're an officer, the pay isn't all that great. What a shame too. Here you are doing all the above and not closely well compensated for it.

But if you're looking here, you might also consider Sunshine's advice. Get the female cropped out of your pic or if it's a sister, then don't scratch out her face.

Be well!

hmm you guys are kind of rough.
Just because the most recent photo I have is with a girl I'm not good enough? Also, it's not magic marker. The editing is from gIMP image editor (if anyone is a linux nerd.)

Yes, I went to college and did pretty well. I did not finish but the credits I earned went towards my rank at enlistment. I will be finishing my degree through the Air Force.

Okay why did this turn into a self defense thread?

Greetings from Norcross!

This is just a guess, as I am obviously not a female. But I have dated a few...

But you are at the age that it is nearly the end of after HS did you goto visit Uncle Sam or to college. I would probably be making assumptions but most of the successful women with the "sheetz" together probably went to college. That would impose an educational gap. They want a peer maybe?

Hang in there though. Maybe you just haven't met the right one... That is not such an easy thing. I have been divorced for a decade now, and I am still looking for the right one!!!
