I must admit I am a girl who has always admired a man in uniform. Marines and Army men rate #1 in my book.


Yep, then you act all shocked and like your world will be destroyed forever when he gets called away for long periods or when two service men show up at the door to tell you that your invincible hunk has been killed in action. Or (more commonly) he has committed suicide or comes home with permanent, deep PTSD.... Good choices made there. Actually I get the impression that a lot of women get off on dysfunctional relationships. What's life without drama right??

you know... i'm a big ol' lefty liberal. most of my life i've definitely been concerned with our military and how it's run and what it's directed to do.

and i'm a military spouse now, which is not something i ever saw happening in my life. and my husband is liberal as well, and our relationship is good, supportive, caring and functional. it's not an easy lifestyle, and i still do have a lot of concerns about the US military.

but damn, you and others in this thread are painting with a huge, broad, bitter brush. i noticed you even edited to make some extra slams at women, as if you take it hella personally that anyone would be attracted to someone in the military.

you want to talk about dysfunctional and getting off on drama?

read your own damn post.

I'm not seeing anything in your post that argues with any particular point I made. (is that called a strawman argument?) Anyway, just saying, prioritizing a military uniform when making mating decisions...


How about I explain my opinion with a different approach...
How about a statement like: Men who are not complete a-holes are #1 in my book. #2 would be men in uniform.
At least there is a smidgen of rational there.

Maybe I'm the one having to say something that isn't pleasant or popular but if I save one relationship because someone thought a little more about it then it will have been worth it.

Look up what an "incel" is. Suddenly, a whole lot of the personalities and behaviors on ATS will start to make sense too you.

Two things spring to mind. A man in a uniform always has a job, although, usually, a low paying one. Also they tend to be the kind of person who takes orders well and does what they are told. Uniforms are for people who want to fit into a certain mold. They are not for the individual or for free thinkers. They are for those who want to hide amongst a crowd and disperse responsibilities.


This quoted post is what is known as a complete load of bollocks.

You bring up a good point. I'm not dissing men in uniform. There are a lot of good ones. I'm dissing women who make statements like the one in the OP. Saying something to the effect that the number one quality of the man in her relationship is how he looks in a uniform. It's like a guy saying "I don't like fat women" and models should never weigh more than 115 pounds.

that's not what she said, though.

if someone made a thread about how they like redheads, would you be bitter about all the brunettes being left out?

or if they said they liked people who are into outdoor sports, would you get mad on behalf of the introverts?

there's definitely an interesting discussion to be had about what our desires mean, and where they come from. but shaming people, psychologically diagnosing them as dysfunctional, or bringing ones' own personal bitterness into it is irrelevant and at places in this thread, rather mean-spirited as well.

You should also understand that the masses are all deliberately "programmed" with certain key "phrases" and "statements" to achieve the goals of the elite.

One of these statements is "Women love a man in uniform."

This came from the old days, when only men wore the uniforms.

In order to attract the men to the various services to serve, putting their life in danger, the masses needed to be "programmed" to think of this "uniform" in positive ways.

And just like how adverts selling a Porche or Ferarri shows the man who drives the car getting the "woman" of his desires, the "uniform" was linked to "women" in exactly the same way, to get the men to feel good about joining up.

Both men and women grew up hearing this phrase over and over, in movies, in ads, in discussions with friends, etc..so it became part of their thoughts.

Now, they simply repeat and act on it, without even considering where it came from, or why it's there. They'll all "agree with it", without knowing why. But, if you ask anyone, they'll "construct" a plausible sounding explanation for their own acceptance of this dogma, because everyone likes to think that they had the "freedom of choice" and decided on this using their own "rational" mind.

Despite the evidence that the statement is as old as the hills, and as wide spread as the wind.

We all have our little quirks what does it for us, for some it is uniforms.
Doesn't matter does it we like what we like due to various situations in our lives.

I can honestly say that I like uniforme because of a great looking very fit soldier I once knew.
He was also into sword fighting and helicopters. His sexiness was it that now makes all men in uniform more sexy. But it's really because of strong arms and the danger and the ....
We're talking about the warrior type of soldier, right?
They are just hot. Sure they're beasts and killers but imagine how romantic if they'd do it for your and the tribes safety.

Despite over half a century of attempted social engineering women are still primarily attracted to masculinity, and for the reasons you outlined in your last post.

The God of Biomechanics will never be disavowed, and attempting to pervert what one sex finds attractive in the other is just one more battle that ugly feminism has lost.

I find uniforms attractive on men too. Always have.

I've analyzed what I associate with it- two things:

1- Discipline. It may or may not be true for the man being observed, but it gives me the feeling that he is someone who is highly disciplined; who masters and channels his urges and drives. Even if he is a subordinate in a hierarchy, he has to have self mastership in order to obey orders. I find that attractive. Men that can't channel and control their drives, reflexes or urges make terrible partners in many ways...

2- Service and dedication to the larger whole. No matter what the organization the uniform represents, it suggests the man looks for service to higher ideals or motivations than his own individual desires. That represents a certain opening to others and as well as a desire to develop the self through service to the All.

Though I am aware that these may not actually be applicable for all men in uniform, it still grabs my attention and makes me want to find out if they do..

That's the story of all movies coming right out of hollywood.

I just re-watched the legend of Tarzan.

So, I'm reminded that it's was the storyline of many novels in the bygone era, when we all read books instead of watching film.

Programming, it's been going on for millenia.

Think of Helen of Troy, and all the ships that went to war for the love of a woman etc...

Same theme..

Men to battle, women to love.

Well, modern social architects are attempting to revolutionize that aging storyline.

Today, the women wear the uniforms, the men cook and weep, and it's discriminatory to push any of the old paradigms on us modern folk.

Nope I think it is to do with my experiences as a child, I remember watching a carry on film and I first sort of noticed women, sort of a "hold on maybe they all are not smelly witches look at that!" moment.
These little things make what makes us all giddy and randy.
