Factors like compatibility with goals, beliefs, religions, spending habits, heck, even zodiac signs had to be considered. What’s harder is if you don’t have much time to date and get to know people because you keep getting deployed. Yep, that’s the military life. Good thing, some genius came up with dating sites exclusive to those serving the country.
