AMWHOIAM Posted February 18, 2012 Share Posted February 18, 2012 Ok, so I happen to live in a VERY strange city in the United States as it relates to the "dating scene". Anyway, after leaving the military I moved to CO Spgs, CO for a job and was subsequently laid off. After being laid off I began my undergraduate degree program here. Anyway, on to my question. Unbeknownst to me and despite having a population of roughly 500,000 give or take, this city is nonetheless a horrible city if you are single and wish to date people. Every woman who moves here falls into one of two categories to include the following: 1. A MARRIED Army or Air Force wife or 2. a woman who was already married to some dude BEFORE moving to Colorado Springs with her husband. To make matters even worse, the few single women who do live here tend to only date guys that they went to junior high and high school with. So, with all of this being said, I am sick and tired of being looked at by all these married women when I am out in public. Every time that I go grocery shopping it almost never fails that some woman wearing a wedding ring is looking at me and I don't like that one bit. They are most likely looking at me because I am not with a woman because I don't have a wife or gf like all of the other drones/clones in this city. The only other reason that they might be potentially be looking at me is because they are attracted to me and I am NOT interested in cheating with someone's wife so they are SOL. So, I have seriously considered buying a fake wedding band to wear whenver I go out in public in Colorado Springs, CO so that I will fit in better here. I am tired of being looked at as some sort of weird outcast every time that I go grocery shopping simply because I don't fit the typical "married with kids" demographic which is predominant in this town. Do you guys know where I could find a relatively inexpensive "wedding band" to wear so that I will not be looked at as being "deviant" where I live? I realize that the practical solution to this problem is to move to a non-military city where I MIGHT stand a chance of fitting in better, but that is still a few months away. Just for informational purposes, Co Spgs, CO has no less than 5 military bases so that in and of itself is why this city is such a horrible place to be single because there is simply too much military influence in this town. It was the same way where I was stationed back on the east coast too. Link to comment
