I use this https://www.amazon.it/Ernie-Ball-guitare-%C3%A9lectrique-calibre/dp/B00CAV0TRQ/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=ernie+ball+10+46&qid=1629047475&sr=8-2 on all of my 8 electric guitars. Properly clean fretboard first, keep your hands clean before playing, they'll be ok for more than you expect. My average is 8 months before they lose a bit of brilliance, cheap enough to change them, but for less demanding average user I guess they can last over a year. Much depends on personal use, sweat etc, this is my experience.
Since you mentioned EB and I have heard of it before- I found these but it seems you can't pick different thicknesses on Amazon?
I have no basis though because I've never used any other strings
Should I try getting a couple different kinds of strings?

They're electric strings. Using these
And I've tried two brands, D'addarios as well. Same result
Why not just some EB Slinky’s?
That would work right? I can't find pics of the strings itself
Ernie Ball 3 packs are usually like $13 on amazon. Best bang for your buck.
the guitar is ~20 years old so i dont think it has the same strings. but i just ordered these
