Thus making small talk with a veteran on a date can be a bit difficult but not impossible.
Start off by ask your partner about his/her hobbies, home town and some of the interesting places he/she has been to.
If you too have met someone who was in the military and are keen to know him on a personal level, here are a few things to consider. The understanding of who is a military veteran varies from one society to another.
In some countries the terms refers to an old soldier who has seen long service but in more empowered societies it can refer to any person who has served in the armed forces so that they are entitled to certain benefits for serving their country.
See if your town or city has any of these and if so, offer to volunteer at them.
If you can meet thousands of singles in one go, why not do it?
Dating online is the new “it” thing, although it doesn’t feel trendy, it just feels practical.
Take your cue about discussing his/her service from your date.
If he/she seems eager to talk about it, go ahead and ask where he/she served.
Look up dating sites catering to relationship needs of veterans or even military dating sites which welcome its retired service personnel among its members.
