Actually, that's not bad advice - assuming you'd actually care for a dog (and be able to take care of it). A dog will provide you with comfort, friendship and unwavering loyalty beyond anything any human can or will. At the very least it will:

* make you more satisfied with your life and thus
* make you less desperate for company (believe it or not, desperation is not sexy)
* get you off your ass.

As a bonus it might
* provide the opportunity to meet other people
- some of which are of the opposite gender
- all of which you share a common interest (dogs)

That last point is not irrelevant, because at the very least you'll have some place to start a conversation.

I'm all for using games as a means of sparking young men and women's interest in joining the armed forces. It's a great way to show them what to expect without actually sending them overseas. The only condition I ask is that a representative number of gamers get shot in the gut with an AK-47.
