The Air Force seems like it would be the safest.
I have been having a lot of trouble even talking to a recruiter to the air force. Idk if its only where i live but when i go they are never in their office, they don't answer my phone calls or emails or even give me a call back i been waiting a week for them to contact me and still no luck. When i go to their office i am always greeted by the army recruiter and i have talk to him plenty of times and im really considering it.

Why do we need to hear your life story? It hardly has anything to do with you wanting to join the army or air force.
Your best bet is to just talk to some professionals in both fields and come up with a decision on your own instead of having people on MMOC choose for you... Joining the army or air force is no laughing matter.

Well you will not make a very good Officer, telling you why would get me infracted on this forum. What role are you looking at doing? We cannot advise you without specifics, do you want a combat role? Do you want to sit in front of a computer?
Your life story is not important at all, we need to know about what you want to do, not what your parents did.
First thing you should do is go talk to the recruiters and see what they have available. Your experience in the military will change drastically based not only on your branch of service, but on what job you get.... scoring high on your ASVAB will help a lot, as will the college credits you already have.
Talk to the recruiters, and see what they have available at the moment... if you're still unsure, do NOT sign anything or agree to anything until you've had a chance to think it over. I got lucky with my recruiter, but a lot of recruiters will deliberately gloss over a lot of the less pleasant aspects of military life to try and get you to join. I'm guessing you're old/experienced enough to see past a lot of the pretty talk, but still be aware of it. (My recruiter specifically told me exactly what I could expect, and thus far I haven't seen any point he's been wrong on; the things he didn't tell me about he told me up front he didn't know anything about, so even there I knew I was going in somewhat blind.)
Also, make sure you read up on marriage requirements. Once you're in, there are procedures and protocols you have to follow if you want to get married, and while they will not prevent you from getting married (except in very extreme cases), it's still better to know ahead of time.
Army/Airforce will mean you have to go to training and so you'll abandon your girlfriend and apartment, right?
How about this: just drop apartment and girlfriend - you mentioned both as expenses, move back with parents and go to college.
Is this not an option?

I've been in the Air Force for 4 years, and it really is the way to go. Just do yourself a favor, and stay out of maintenance. DO NOT GO IN OPEN ANYTHING. Get yourself a guaranteed job beforehand.
And I thought things were ran at least somewhat efficiently.

Before any mods decide to infract me, he did ask.
