Dating frat boys
Fraternity brothers are no different than men in the world at large. My college sweetheart was a brother at Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE), at an Ivy League school, to boot.
He came from money and all, but he wasn't spoiled or entitled. He loved being part of the Big Brother program, and continued to be involved with it long after he was out of college. He worked very hard, and although he enjoyed the fruits of his labor, he was not spoiled or entitled, either.

Millitary is associated with strength, might, honor, dignity, loyalty, protection, commitment Fraternity is associated with drinking, promiscuity, partying, being disloyal, pretentious, white-collar My SO is a Navy chief and an Iraq war veteran.
For my age group, I'd guess the rates of military enrollment were very low. I have tried dating military guys, and in every case, the personality differences were insurmountable. I have noticed I prefer men who served in the military versus guys who never served, went to college right away and were in fraternities.
