Be very careful here.
You may want to try EHarmony because at least they match you based on personality and other personal characteristics. I came out here to marry my husband and I have come across a lot of women Black, White, Puerto Rican and Chinese who are not so nice. They know how to play the innocent damsel in distress but they will rip you to pieces if given half the chance.
Also, consider that the military men like them that way. Military men like hard women - lol. That's fine, but are you a military man? Seriously, a reasonable online dating site that matches people for things other than a Saturday night 'hook-up' will be your best bet. I agree that you should try online dating but don't ever pay for these types of sites. There are plenty of free ones, however, you run into the same problem with all of them: Sign up for PlentyofFish or something like it and try your luck.
It's better than blowing a bunch of money on Match. And oh by the way, I've lived in several states across this nation and have never met such rough women like I have here. Honestly, I feel somewhat bad for the military guys.
Plenty of girls here hate military guys and won't even talk to them. Even worse, there's plenty of uniform chasers who marry them, cheat on them, divorce them and collect their benefits.
That being said, their very presence here greatly inflates the ratio of men to women so while perhaps half the local women hate military guys, the other half is neutral or likes them.
Looking at it from a demographic standpoint, you have a local populace with about an equal male to female ratio but when you hit the early twenties, the numbers become horribly skewed. In short, women, whether their preference is local, military or whatever, have their pick from their late teens to about mid thirties.
Just to drive home the point, here are the population pyramids for Norfolk and then Virginia Beach. Note how the male side juts out.
