Friendships & Single Life

Friends are important when you’re single. Network to make new friends and explore new activities, no matter your location.

Friends are an important part of life, particularly if you’re single. It’s more fun having folks to share the good (and bad) times with.

You may have long-term friends from life before the military but due to distance and lifestyle changes they may not be as available. It’s important to find ways to connect to your new military “family” and the community where you live.

Get started by networking – join clubs, attend events, ask for introductions. Perhaps you want to travel, attend classes or pick up a new hobby.

There are plenty of opportunities wherever you’re located to make new friends, explore new activities and maybe even find that special someone. Use all available resources to stay in touch with old friends and make new acquaintances as you make the most of your military experience.

Talk to someone who's been there. Schedule a peer-to-peer consultation.
