Killeen, Texas is not really a city I think about when I think about falling in love. But the reality is, Killeen is definitely a place where families come to retire once leaving the military.

LOVE DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE!

This means someway, somehow, people do find a way to fall in love in the city - it’s just not advertised as a city of romantic gestures and lovers. I spoke with a group of single individuals and had to ask the million-dollar question: why is it so hard to find love and date in the city of  Killeen?

WHY CAN'T I FIND LOVE IN THE CITY OF KILLEEN?

After interviewing these single folks, I would be lying if I didn’t say my mouth was open from pure shock at how they felt about romantic engagements in the city. Here are a couple of opinions from eligible Killeen bachelors and bachelorettes on why it’s hard to date here.

PICK THE PLACE AND THE TIME AND I WILL BE THERE!

The first individual I spoke to explained to me that Killeen is not the place you go really to set the mood. He pretty much just told me there’s not a lot to do out here, which doesn’t give you much room to have really fun and cute dates. I can understand, even though I am a person that believes in making do with what you’ve got and being creative when it comes to dating. I do want the scenery to be excellent, though.

THIS ISN'T GOODBYE, IT'S SEE YOU LATER

When I spoke with a young lady about dating in the city, she explained that even though Fort Hood, which is the largest base in the United States, is right next door, committing to someone can be difficult because a lot of times our soldiers get deployed. She explained to me no one wants to invest in a relationship, then once you decide to get comfortable with an individual, they leave for nine months. Just save her the heartache, pretty much.

Last but not least, this statement right here is really what took the cake for me: when I spoke with the group, everyone agreed that a lot of the reasons that people have issues with dating in the city is because they’re already married! That means a lot of people are out of the dating pool or, worse, they're cheating.

From my understanding, adultery runs rampant in the city! Someone explain to me that you could be dating somebody for literally a decade and not even know that they have a family on the other side of town.

DON'T GIVE UP ON LOVE, KILLEEN

I’m not saying that you should just throw the idea of dating in the city completely out the window, but I do say keep these particular three opinions in mind when deciding to choose your mate! Love's out there - you just have to find it. Good luck!
