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.
So instead, I began questioning all the people I was messaging about why they had turned to online dating.
Over the years, Military Friends has experienced tremendous success in bringing military singles and their admirers together.
Uniform Dating.com, though free, was too complicated to use.
I couldn’t tell the difference between live chats, messages, winks, likes, and whatever else was going on.
Regardless of age though, none of them ever responded to my attempts to meet in person.
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.
