Live in an area that is near a military base. This will ensure your ability to meet the highest number of military men in a small area. If possible, get a job on or near the base. This will increase the chance you'll be able to encounter military men and possibly find a single one.

Seek out military men online. There are several online sites that specifically target people in the military and help them find dates. Joining one of these dating sites will help you meet a large amount of military men who are also looking to date someone.

Show up to Fleet Week. This happens in a variety of cities across the nation when Navy boats come in and dock. Many of the guys coming off the ships are single, and this is a great way to meet many of them. Look around the city for parties specifically designed for the guys who come in for Fleet Week and attend those.

Find a military pen pal online, and start writing to him oversees or wherever he is stationed. While this might be an odd way of meeting someone, it allows you to get to know him better via letters and helps you figure out if you have a connection or not.

Tip

  • Always check a man's left ring finger before approaching him. This is one way to tell if he's single.
