Holding all other things constant, guys who stated that they were in the military (like those who said they were doctors or lawyers or firefighters) did have an advantage online.The research doesn’t say, but we can make some educated guesses. Military guys also marry sooner than their civilian counterparts. A nurse who hates helping people and whom you can't imagine having a good beside manner isn't very sexy, and a businesswoman who doesn't look/act professional isn't very sexy (unless she's taking a break from that to reveal her lustful true nature, of course! A postal worker could manage that just as well, if she could convince you that you've violated some postage law by shipping that wolf to texas with a postage stamp stuck to its butt :)In general, men aren't turned on by power symbols, such as women tend to be. No, not really, except that with a real cop, there's the whole power angle.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... They always seem to think they are right and they become belligerent if you try to reveal the truth to them. Now for the cute little jailer who worked w/my gal, she literally hit on me at an office party/dance and I'd kick myself for not following up on that hint if I'd only gotten the hint sooner that my gal went and found her another man to drive crazy. Depends on the particular woman filling one, but then the postal delivery one is anything but flattering.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. They are usually ridged people with strong desires for dominance over others. And I'll be DAMNED if I can get any TSA person to grant me my request of being searched by a female agent when I get the dreaded 'flag' for being a white polish guy from Ohio who obviously looks like I want to explode a plane with my vast collection of hotel hand lotions from all over god's green earth............ I sort of hoped that she'd 'play cop' w/me, but it was serious business for her. Cop == arrogant control freak (much like male cops). What explains the edge military guys have when it comes to online dating? Among our own audiences at Spouse X events, meeting online is always in the top three ways military folks find a mate. We are also always getting letters from women who “met” a military guy online who turns out to be a scammer begging them for money. But for military guys to have an actual advantage before other occupations? Haven’t those women seen the articles about service members on foodstamps? Don’t they get that for every passionate, romantic, picture-worthy homecoming kiss there are (on average) 180 days in which the only lips that touch your own smell like the inside of a sippy cup?? In one study, military men were second in preference only to lawyers. (In case you are interested, women who list themselves as being in law enforcement or the military are among the least successful in the online dating game—which probably tells you something important about their potential partners.) What do these online women think they are getting when they click open the military package? Willing to commit to a job for at least four years at a time. When it comes to the research, you might be surprised to find that men in uniform really do have kind of an edge when it comes to finding a mate on the Internet. They received an above average number of first contact e- mails, keywords, and were browsed more often than men in other occupations.Those who boasted humanitarian endeavours were not rated as highly, nor mere jocks.For all their posturing on the sports field, odiferous Lycra has nothing on a starched dress uniform or a pair of well-filled combat trews.
