I suppose everyone is free to make his or her assumptions. On that note, an assumption such as the one in bold is not the brain trust of an intelligent person. At all. It is a display of limited intelligence and understanding of the individual to whom the comment was directed, and that person's preferences on a larger scale.

Or women for that matter.

I thought most people are attracted to individuals.
That's because children, little, small-minded boys and girls, are attracted to and go after a person because of their career (Marines, pro athletes, musicians, etc).

The rest of us adults are attracted to the individual and the career could just be icing on the cake.

Or, in all honesty, they use the women with no intent of a relationship. They have a huge aversion to what they consider "groupies."
This is pretty popular with both genders in any environment that attracts "groupies" (for lack of a better term, but you know what I mean....those that specifically seek out that particular type/profession/etc)

Strippers
Athletes
Musicians
Military
etc.

Words such as BAH and Tricare come to mind as well as someone looking to become a dependapotamus.

The warning signs are there: claims to be doing good by herself and okay with a long distance relation. This is a leaders worst nightmare here.

Joe marries someone like this, signs over a power of attorney, leaves for deployment and comes back to nothing and no one. The senior leaders in here have seen this before.
Don't forget about that divorce rate just after 10 years, once the spouse is eligible for half of the pension.

True as most guys will carry the max $400,000 SGLI and if you're KIA, it's another $100,000. I would even go as far to say that some want the husband to be killed.

The issue with that is you have to look like a Playboy model to get a rich old guy like that who has the real $$$$.

As long as you are not a dependapotamus. I say go for it.

Not sure if there are any website available, wish you can hang out with me, and I can introduce you to a lot of them.

Why? I see too many military guys taken advantage of by women that target them......this post gets my hackles up.

You should be looking to date a person you like and care about...not picking them because you think they are an easy targeto that will support you and go away so you can run around.

I was a bartender at the E and NCO clubs on two different bases....I saw it plenty....the pretty ones went for officers...the skanks went for the fresh young and naive ones. Thing it...for these women it was a step up in life style for them...as much as a mansion would be.

It was pathetic when a unit would deploy...the wives hit the bars force...and they weren't going home alone.
