Dating as a Lesbian or Gay Midshipman

Trust us, it is a really bad idea to date within Bancroft Hall. It will draw from your attention, energy and concentration which should be focused on doing your best as a Midshipman, academically and professionally. This probably sounds as though monks and nuns are writing this, but those of us before you have learned from our combined experiences that intra-Brigade dating is just a really, really bad idea, just as it is a bad idea to date within the command once you hit the fleet. Unfortunately, too many of you will probably learn this yourself the hard way.

You only get one opportunity to be a Midshipman in your life. There are no do-overs, no try-agains at USNA. We hope that you will take full advantage of your youth during the special and exciting time at the Academy.

’Nuff said about this.
