Don't date a girl who travels

She’s the one with the messy unkempt hair colored by the sun. Her skin is now far from fair like it once was. Not even sun kissed. It’s burnt with multiple tan lines, wounds and bites here and there.  But for every flaw on her skin, she has an interesting story to tell.


Don't date a girl who travels. She is hard to please. The usual dinner-movie date at the mall will suck the life out of her. Her soul craves for new experiences and adventures. She will be unimpressed with your new car and your expensive watch. She would rather climb a rock or jump out of an airplane than hear you brag about it.

Don’t date a girl who travels because she will bug you to book a flight every time there’s an airline seat sale. She wont party at Republiq. And she will never pay over $100 for Avicii because she knows that one weekend of clubbing is equivalent to one week somewhere far more exciting.

Chances are, she can't hold a steady job. Or she’s probably daydreaming about quitting. She doesn’t want to keep working her ass off for someone else’s dream. She has her own and is working towards it. She is a freelancer. She makes money from designing, writing, photography or something that requires creativity and imagination. Don't waste her time complaining about your boring job

Don't date a girl who travels. She might have wasted her college degree and switched careers entirely. She is now a dive instructor or a yoga teacher. She’s not sure when the next paycheck is coming. But she doesn’t work like a robot all day, she goes out and takes what life has to offer and challenges you to do the same.

Don’t date a girl who travels for she has chosen a life of uncertainty.  She doesn’t have a plan or a permanent address. She goes with the flow and follows her heart. She dances to the beat of her own drum. She doesn’t wear a watch. Her days are ruled by the sun and the moon. When the waves are calling, life stops and she will be oblivious to everything else for a moment. But she has learned that the most important thing in life isn’t surfing.

Don’t date a girl who travels as she tends to speak her mind. She will never try to impress your parents or friends. She knows respect, but isn’t afraid to hold a debate about global issues or social responsibility.

She will never need you. She knows how to pitch a tent and screw her own fins without your help. She cooks well and doesn’t need you to pay for her meals. She is too independent and wont care whether you travel with her or not. She will forget to check in with you when she arrives at her destination. She’s busy living in the present. She talks to strangers. She will meet many interesting, like-minded people from around the world who share her passion and dreams. She will be bored with you.

So never date a girl who travels unless you can keep up with her. And if you unintentionally fall in love with one, don’t you dare keep her. Let her go.

    1. I love every line of this as it speaks directly to my soul. I once told a boyfriend that I was leaving to Spain for a few months or maybe a year and that I figured he should know....the good news is that this girl may be difficult to date but eventually you find the one man who can speak directly to your soul, values your perspective, and wants to join your next few hundred adventures now rather than wait for retirement...then you know this is the man you can marry. I say don't date her, marry her! :)

    2. I have to say I find this post both demeaning and stereotypical. Im a Senior Marketing Manager for a leading international brand and Ive traveled the world more than most. Not everyone girl that travels is a drop out and sometimes a high flying career is what a girl dream of.

      You make the assumption that everyone is the same and that is simply not true. I washed my hair everyday I traveled.....even in a hostel by la laguna blanca, Bolivia. I booked my own flight with my own money to Malaysia...oh and Russia. And despite having spent 8 days living in a hut on an island in the sea I still absolutely love a dinner-movie date.

      I hold down a successful permanent job and am probably one of the most organised people you could meet. I have a permanent address in a $500k house, drive and Audi A3 and WOULD pay $100 to see Avicii.

      You're not a proper traveler I hear you say!

      Ive spent almost a year on the road, moved to the other side of the world because, despite my contradiction to your view of a girl who travels, I am a free spirit.

      So my point is dont stereotype society because everyone is different and leads there own path!

    3. I totally agree with you. I absolutely adore travelling and spend all my money doing that, but it doesn't mean I wouldn't like "the usual dinner-movie date" or something like that. Maybe the story should be entitled "Don't date me"!!

      Delete
    4. This isn't meant to be offensive. Its not geared for a girl who's career is involved with traveling. Its for a girl that wants to do nothing more than explore. The unknown and new is what fuels her desire to live. Its everything and all she breathes, which is the reason why everything else comes second. The hair, the money, the address. None of it matters if she is traveling for self pleasure and innate curiosity. She will drop anything at the first chance she gets just to move on and fill the void that's left since her last adventure. Traveling, then, is more of a necessity, not an option.

    1. Mine too... except for a few things.I think this piece is really well intentioned and I know it's made a lot of people very happy to read it. Well done Adi for that. Having said this, of all the dubious post-feminist writing that I’ve seen, it’s exactly this kind that I find the most dissapointing. I actually think it can be quite damaging to women and men alike.

  9. Hey girls, feel free to continue or add your own thoughts to this article!

    From Kage: As a girl who travels but does have a day job, I will add this: "The girl who travels does not work to climb the career ladder. She is simply finding a way to fund her next adventure. And she often finds those means at a job that also makes her happy. Do not expect to dazzle her with your corporate ambitions. They mean nothing to her."

    From Cesca: Following your writing prose, something like: "She'll never be clingy and seldom be jealous. She will never ask you to stay put and stay with her, in fact she'll do the opposite and encourage you to leave at the break of dawn and try to catch the forecasted swell, or buy a ticket on a whim - travel halfway across the world to join your buddies on the big festival happening there... It will not cost you much to please her; take her on the back of your bike and ride around town. Sit by the beach or a lake or whatever natural scenery close by. Chill. Have some beer. But she'll also appreciate it if you do decide to spend on her - as long as it's an experience she can relive in her memory (or something practical she can use in her own adventures)... you will never have to worry what to answer her when she asks how she looks because she will never ask you that, she simply doesn't care"...you know the rest better, xx

  38. As the girl who travels- everywhere- I don't think this is true. I have been to over thirty countries in the past five years, but hold a steady job. I am an MBA student and recently engaged to a man who is more dependent on me than I on him. He had a spinal fusion surgery so not only can he not pitch a tent, he can't even vacuum our house without being in pain from the metal rods holding his spine in place. I want to tell you that while it is true that bragging about your watch or your new car won't impress me, loyalty, humor and intelligence will. I am happy marrying a man who does not travel, but loves to let me do what I love to do. I went to spain without him last week and am going without him to Japan in two weeks. The traveling on my own makes me feel comfortable with myself and happy, but it also reminds me of how much I love the life that we have created together and how much I miss him when I am away. I understand the rationale for this article and I agree with some of it, but I think it is a little closeminded to say that girls who travel will never be satisfied with anything else. Girls who travel seem to be all over the place, mentally as well as physically. Thus, for me at least, having a man at home for stability in my life is more than helpful, it keeps me sane. Good read, just thought I would share these thoughts. Keep traveling the world!

    1. Hello Sasha, thanks for sharing your thoughts. I wrote this article a year ago and was at a very different place in my life. While the article might come off as a bit narrow minded, implying that girls who travel will never be satisfied with the average joes, I'm sure there are a lot of exceptions. I admire your dedication to your work and also respect the love that you and your partner share. Happy travels!

  40. I'm a traveler, and this article does not accurately describe me at all.
    I travel the world, but I do have a home. I love talking to strangers and meeting new people, but I also have friends and family that I talk to on a daily basis.
    I always have a job and will never be wondering when the next paycheck is coming in.
    Although material things don't impress me, that doesn't mean that I won't fall for a guy that has these things. On the contrary, if he's a great guy and worked hard to get the things he has in life, I will be absolutely be drawn to him.
    You can have the best of both worlds...and I am proof to that!

Even though we all have travel as a common ground, everyone is different from each other and have the right to feel otherwise. Happy travels!

    1. Wow, you must just be so much better than everyone else because of how you choose to travel instead of live a life so normal it is sickening. It is just not cool how all these other people who have just lived their small insignificant lives have burdened you with their dull conversation and boring life stories. What losers they are for thinking you might care about the lives of people who maybe have different life experience and who haven't necessarily been lucky enough to travel yet. Well now you can absorb yourself in your own amazingness and uniqueness, you gypsy of the world, you flitting carefree fairy of ethereal natural wonder you. You and your other wanderlusting wanderers can all revel in each other's deep cultural wisdom as you agree with each other about how much more amazing you are than the rest of dreary old society. But dont talk with each other too long because you don't have enough time to form any lasting or meaningful relationships with anyone, you're off on your next flight!

      Delete
  49. I feel like you and me have much in common, in the way that we both love to travel and travel long and slow through a country, really getting to know it. In between, I work in jobs I don't really want to do but that make me a bit of money to go off and travel again to that place I always seem to be daydreaming about.

    What we don't seem to have in common though is your nature of deeming everyone else as dull because they don't have the same life as yours. I don't judge people by the way they want to live their lives. Some people stay in their home towns all their life and look forward to those dinner-movie dates. And if they are happy, good for them. And I am sure they will have as many interesting stories to tell as you do.

    If I was a guy, I would never date a girl like you, whether you traveled or not, because you come across as self absorbed and ignorant in this article and it's not attractive. It seems like you care not for other people.

    I used to think like you then I grew up.

    1. The thing is, most guys don't want to DATE a girl like that anyway. They will however definately want to shag a girl like that. Girls like this are the perfect one night stand, or once off fling - they are adventurous and there's no strings attached. So if you never want any meaningful relationships in your life, be like this girl - just make sure you use protection because you wouldn't want a baby to come along and ruin your travel plans...

  52. Don’t Date a Boy Who Travels
    He’s the one with the messy unkempt hair colored by the sun. His skin is now far from fair like it once was. Not even sun kissed, it’s burnt with tan lines. He has wounds and bites here and there, but for every flaw on his skin, he has a story to tell.
    Don’t date a boy who travels. He is hard to please. The usual dinner and movie date will not make for a repeat. His soul craves new experiences and adventures alike. He will be unimpressed with the talk about your new dress and new purse. He would rather climb a rock or jump out of an airplane, than hear about your possessions.
    Don’t date a boy who travels, because he will bug you to book flights. Every time there’s an airline seat sale, even for a night. He won’t party at Republiq, and he will never pay for Avicii, because he knows that one weekend of clubbing is equivalent to one week somewhere far more exciting.
    Chances are he can’t hold a steady job, but even if he could, he’d probably be daydreaming about quitting as soon as he could. He doesn’t want to keep working his ass off for someone else’s dream. He has his own dream, and is busy working at it every day. He is a freelancer; he makes money from something that requires creativity and imagination. Don’t waste his time complaining about your monotony.
    Don’t date a boy who travels, he might have wasted his college degree, and he will definitely switched careers entirely. He is now a rafting instructor, rock climbing teacher, or whatever it may be. He’s not sure when the next paycheck is coming, but he’s happy he doesn’t work like a robot all day. He goes out and takes what life has to offer and challenges you to do the same.
    Don’t date a boy who travels, for he has chosen a life of uncertainty. He doesn’t have a plan or even a permanent address for that matter. He goes with the flow and follows his heart. No matter how cliché, he dances to the beat of his own drum. He doesn’t wear a watch, but maybe a ring on his thumb. When the waves are calling his life stops for a few moments, and he will become oblivious to everything else. But he has learned that the most important thing in life isn’t just surfing.
    Don’t date a boy who travels, as he tends to speak his mind. He will never try to impress your parents and friends with his worldly mind. He knows respect, but isn’t afraid to hold a debate about global issues, social responsibility, or even something as mundane as everyday hate.
    Don’t date a boy who travels, because he will never need you. He knows how to sew a button and can cook a mean stew. He can clean up like a whistle, and doesn’t need you to polish his boots. But if you try to help him tie his tie, he will be more than happy to be treated so well by you.
    Don’t date a boy who travels, he is too independent. He won’t care whether you join him on his travels. He will forget to check in, and when he arrives, he will immediately hit the town for what’s sure to be a busy night. He’s always living in the present, talking to strangers. He will meet many very interesting, like-minded people. He will share his passion and dreams with people from around the world. In the end, he will get bored with the non-traveling people.
    So, never date a boy who travels, unless you can keep up with him. If you unintentionally fall in love with one, don’t you dare keep him. Let him go.

  54. As a woman who travels solo long-term throughout the world this article resinated with me, but I think you should change the title and premise of this article to "STRIVE to Date a Woman that Travels... And if you can't keep up with her then set her free." It's more POSITIVE! There's another blog written by a man that is titled "Date a Man Who Travels" so I'm not sure why women in this blog get the flipped side of the coin... Thanks.

  56. Date a girl who travels. She doesn't care if her hair is messy and she knows she doesn't need to tan her skin and be "sunkissed" or "fair" to be gorgeous. For every mark on her skin, she has an interesting story she may tell you. That is, if you are smart enough to stick around.

    Date a girl who travels. „Good enough“ may not be good enough for her. Enjoy when she decides to spend the evening with you cuddling in front of the TV. If she is there, you can be sure she wants to be there. Don’t expect her to fawn over your car or your watch when she has her own things to fawn over and she pursues them. Expect the same smile and honest interest that you offer her, when she talks about stuff that is important to her.

    Date a girl who travels because it may enrich your life. Hear about her latest journey, instead of exclusively talking to people who have been to the same concert as yourself last Saturday.

    Chances are, she’s really good at whatever she is doing. She wouldn’t work her ass off, if she weren’t working towards her own dream. Don’t fear wasting her time by talking to her. She wouldn’t be there, if she didn’t want to listen to you.

    Date a girl who travels. She might have one, or two, or three college degrees or she might have none. Get real and find out what really counts. She goes out there and will tell life exactly what she expects it to offer her. And it has till the count of zero to be willing to oblige.

    Date a girl who travels. She knows there is no certainty in life. She decides what rules her day. Sometimes she is so focused, she will be oblivious to everthing else for a moment. Don’t worry, she will come back eventually. Or she won’t. Teaching you a lesson about certainty.

    Date a girl who travels, as she tends to speak her mind. She will never try to impress your parents or friends. She knows respect, but isn’t afraid to hold a debate about global issues or social responsibility.

    She will never need you. Rejoice in the thought that she is with you, because she wants to be with you, not because she needs to be with you. She is independent. She will care wether you travel with her or not. You will know because she will talk to you about this. She talks to strangers. She will meet many interesting, like-minded people from around the world who share her passion and dreams. She will not be bored with you. Thank the flying spaghetti monster, she is not with you because she needs to, but because she wants to. If you are habitually afraid of being boring, give yourself a break and a cookie. You deserve to be loved.

    Date a girl who travels, even if you can’t or don’t want to „keep up“ with her. This is not important. There will be others to travel and run with her. There will be others to watch TV in bed with you. It doesn’t mean you are not supposed to want her in your life. Enjoy what you have. Let go of the fear.

  57. A girl who travels is all this and the above... But also she understands at some point that all those incredible landscapes, those cultures, those marvelous people she gets to meet are all serving the purpose of her inner journey, to get to know herself better.... And then she realizes that the most beautiful sunset will only reach its full intensity when she has someone to share it with, at least her best friend, at best the one she loves... Yes we should all date a girl that travels, because she will know why she loves you and she will show you her world. Embrace it.

  59. There are some truths in this essay but there are also some false claims here. I don't care if she has a messy hair or burn tan lines even she wants to be a nomad as long as she has an interesting story to tell then we will be 100% compatible.
    Yet, I would still date this kind of girl because a girl who travels loves enriching herself with life lessons and experiences, making her wise, smart and never afraid of challenges.

  65. Hi Adi,
    I like how you reply to most of the posts and would like to share some lines with you.
    I shared your article on my fb; not surprisingly many gf like it. And funny enough, many of my guy friends replied: I don't want to date one, I want to marry one! :D
    I read through all the replies and saw many people who don't agree or thought you are selfish. You know what? I think everybody is selfish. However, to be honest enough to say out loud, just like what you wrote in your post, is definitely a step toward our true selves. Don't you think so?
    Anyway, wanna let you know that I like your thought and would like to rewrite your post into Chinese if you allow me. I might add-on or change something to speak up my mind in my own language, but I guess you won't mind.

  82. I fell in love with a girl that travels. I only knew her for a few weeks and then she left for her next adventure. She knew I was sad that she left. Today I received an email from her after she landed halfway around the world. Her email simply said this sums up why you don't date a girl who travels and below it was the link to this post. I read it and read it again. Truer words have never been posted.
    ”And if you unintentionally fall in love with one, don’t you dare keep her. Let her go.”

    ReplyDelete
  85. This comes across as stereotypical and a bit condescending. Not everyone who travels fits the "wanderer" and "free spirit" stereotype. In fact, a lot of people who travel finance those trips with the money they make from corporate "boring" jobs, that by the way, also require skill and creativity. Working in advertising requires creativity, designing websites and programming requires creativity and a sense of style as well.

    We should do away with this dichotomy. The world isn't divided into free-spirited girls who give up any responsibility and boring stodgy people who have no sense of adventure. I've always felt a tension between various impulses, desires and preferences, but I realize now that there's nothing abnormal about being a person who can't fit a stereotype - it's the cliché that constructs this as abnormal.

    My final comment is about the last paragraph....there is nothing wrong with needing someone. In fact, what makes relationships last is that that person satisfies something for you that no one and nothing else can. Not even travel.

  91. This article creates the image that someone who travels is extremely selfish, that at the end of the day, no one matters but themselves. Maybe this is the case for some people, I'm not sure, but I feel as though this article just provides an excuse for this type of behaviour.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Hm. I think the motive force behind the article is good, and I find those who take on a life of movement and adventure to be very inspiring, but this is a really bad piece (like most "Date a Girl Who Travels/Reads/Writes/whathaveyou stories are), and it's troubling that so many people have taken to it the way they have.

    The problem with it is that it's so unnecessarily, thoughtlessly nasty and dismissive of other realms of experience, and other ways of living, thinking, and being, which for me goes completely against the bright-eyed spirit of travel and what travel ideally seeks to accomplish. You'd think someone who travels a lot would have a bit more empathy, would be a bit more attuned to the lives of everyday people, and would be a bit more considered in talking about other ways of living and doing things.

    For one thing, the article completely ignores the fact that one could very well find the experience of a musical performance to be just as enriching as a week of travel, and therefore find either to be equally worthy ways of spending money. To use the example from the article - yes, most clubs are ethical cesspools, and much of the music played in these places is derivative and pandering and shoddy, but there is a lot of great art in that world too, if one has a mind to look for it.

    For another, the article goes to great lengths to disparage the boring jobs of those who are regular employees doing ordinary, unglamorous, unromantic work. But that guy working that tedious customer care position at the call center could very well be running his own DIY cassette label in the little free time he can muster (probably not, but he could), or writing a novel, or acting, or making glass art or whatever. The simple fact that one works a regular job doesn't mean that she can't be creative or imaginative.

    Also, it must be recognized that, no matter how thrifty one is, travel is and will always be a luxury reserved for those with the time and the financial, social, and psychic capital for it. Most people can't afford to travel; they might not have the money for it, or they might have to take care of someone at home, or they might find it too emotionally or mentally taxing, or they might find that their abilities are best used with each day spent within the confines of an office cubicle.

    And so these people have to work boring 9-to-five jobs, like robots, and hopefully derive whatever sliver of meaning they can from work. If they're lucky, maybe there's someone there at the end of the day willing to listen to their stories about work, and help make the tedium and daily torment easier to bear. And they're really sorry for being so boring and wasting the author's time.

    These people take what life's handed them and work with it the best they can as well; no need for an overbearing voice challenging them to drop everything to jump off an airplane somewhere. Contrary to what the author seems to be saying, there's romance and sacrifice and love and great stories in the world of regular jobs as well - think for instance of the steadfast, hardworking mother who aspires for nothing more than to provide for her family.

    Finally, the author, in choosing to be so snarky and snobby, closes her eyes to the more macro- forces that affect a person's desire/ability to or appreciation for travel, such as education, access to information, class, social standing, domestic relationships, expectations fair and unfair, and yes, disposable income. Oftentimes, the barriers to entry into the world of the traveler, imposed from without and often beyond the control of the individual, are just too high to even consider hurdling.

    I myself think that travel is a beautiful thing and that it makes people better on the whole. And again, I find those who take on a life of freedom and adventure to be very inspiring. But I think travel needs a better, more thoughtful, more empathetic voice than the writer of this article.

    1. Really well thought out response, and much the way I was feeling after reading the article. Life is a multi-faceted experience and cannot only be felt through the kind of travel discussed in this article.

      I have had discussions with people like this, and they always give air of being more culturally superior to you, and use every opportunity to drop in a travel story or talk about how unique and free-spirited they are. But life is full of experiences, and that comes through living a full life, not just one spent on a plane jetting from town to town. Love, sex, loss, grief, family, work, poverty, wealth, stress, friends - life is a series of trials and tribulations that educates us and gives us opportunity for growth. Just because you haven't travelled and someone else has doesn't make them any more cultural or experienced than you, it is just a different experience you have had and you should use it as an opportunity to share and grow from each other in an authentic and genuine way. It would be boring if everyone was the same.

  94. Blah blah, the girl that travels then ends up the bitter, alone and child less, whinger who some how blames everyone else who lives the boring menial existence they shunned because it wasn't edgy enough. This article is the opposite end of the same self centred insecure spectrum as ones where mothers bang on about how being a mother is the only thing worthwhile.

    My wife and I have both travelled, perhaps not as adventurously as the author, but we decided to try something new; responsibility, disappointment, effort all the mundungus of the boring day to day life.

    I'm happy the author has such an existence, but this smacks of an article written by a 20 something student espousing the wonder of travel, that they have just discovered. In essence, bragging about their superiority over the rest of us luddites who apparently brag about watches etc.

  98. Given that travel is a high aspiration for millions of people on the planet, I think it is unreasonable to say that every traveller shares the same personality traits, perspective and choices as you. Remember not everyone that enjoys travelling is a young and carefree twenty something year old woman.

    Just like humans in every day life, people who travel come in many shapes and sizes and would all have different experiences and take different things from those experiences. Some people may be your kind of traveller, but many would be otherwise. Some people ARE in the corporate ladder and are lucky enough to get to travel the world and live in other cultures for years at a time. Others like to travel to volunteer their time on social and environmental projects rather than flitting from place to place. Some enjoy getting out in nature, whilst others enjoy being in the hustle and bustle of the city. Some are strong family people and regularly touch base with their friends and family back home, whilst others have no problem leaving folks behind. Some are searching for love and would be happy to settle if they find it on their travels whilst others are happy to jump from partner to partner leaving each behind when they change destinations. Others have found their soul mate and travel with them. Some travel with their kids, some with their friends, some all on their lonesome. Some are old, some are middle-aged, some are young (and not all carefree).

    Please don't assume every one is having your experience, and if they aren't the same as you, then don't assume they are any less of a traveller. Everyone is different, searching for different things from their travels, in the same way we all search for different things in life. So don't necessarily say no to dating a girl that travels because she may well be her own unique person that doesn't fit the narrow stereotype presented in this article.

  100. I'll say this: It can be true, but it may also be the lie.
    Yes the adventurous is harder to please, but as long as you can let them travel and be themselves, then you can be with them. But the key here is embracing the fact and accepting that you won't be able to be with them as much as you want to unless you become like them. So if you or the other part has to change to be with your other half, then it isn't worth it. But if you can embrace each other for how different you are and feel that you want to come back to your other half, then there isn't a problem that can't be fixed.

  105. I'm actually pretty disappointed in the girl travelers I've met (as I am in travelers in general). They are mostly very vapid, use travel as an excuse to get fucked up all the time, eat a shit diet, smoke a lot, sit around having really shallow conversation and are generally very lazy. Most travelers do a really shit job of getting outside their 'ethnic comfort zones' - the North Americans, Europeans and Aussies hang out together in one group and the Latin Americans in another group. But more specific to girl travelers, they have lost touch with their femininity. They try to act like guys, they don't dress sexy, they don't take care of themselves. I'm not into 'tom boys'... the girls I have met traveling that I'm impressed with are the expats who are making a living and accomplishing abroad. About 20% of the girls I've met traveling fit Adi's description, the rest are just traveling to avoid something.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Travelling has many meanings, and there are two sides of each coin. In my limping english I tried to show the other side as well...

    He's the one with the smeared hair by yet another train seat, his skin has the typical tan that comes from backlit screens and some bruises here and there where he keeps getting hit by bike pedals.

    Don't date a guy who travels, probably you'll get bored: after 9 hours of train, a meeting in Skype over a scrounged wireless connection in an international airport and four hours of test flights, all he wants is just to lay on the couch with you for 5 minutes of quiet. Or, maybe, just wander without a precise destination printed on the chemical paper of a ticket, just to frame some moments in a picture.

    Don't date a guy who travels: he will always talk about the places he likes to visit, but his life will take him inevitably somewhere else, usually where there's an awful weather. Most probably he's following a project he really cares about and he's prepared to do everything he can to reach the end of it, even travelling till he wakes up in the middle of the night without knowing precisely where he is for some sleepy seconds.

    Don't date a guy who travels, probably he had to to make a lot of compromises to do what he likes and he knows that to stay on the path you need to swallow sour outskirts pills. As soon as the road he had chosen summons him somewhere, he will pack his bags and go, no matter how much he prefers to stay.

    Don't date a guy who travels, because he has chosen an uncertain life. His objectives keep him on the move and his plan is a wild schedule: probably he will wake up at four in the morning just to lay down to bed hundreds of kilometers away. Even when the waves call he'll probably be checking the run of a model using the few kilobytes that the hall of the hotel has to spare. Or maybe, he just dropped down in bed like a stone, fully-clothed and with all the lights on. He's a good listener, but he usually prefers music to the chatters of strangers. More than speaking about social responsibilities he likes feeling useful and do something between one train and the other.

    He will need you often: in the desolation of a small town, down in some middle European hinterland, where the only thing you can hear is the howling of night winds or in a sleepy, broken-down, endless local train trip, he would cut one of his phalanges just to hear your voice. He's an awful cook: he knows he could never shop properly because he could have to pack his stuff at a moment's notice, therefore he settled on a plain subsistence regime. He can get by on his own quite well, but he understood that things just taste different if you share them with someone. He gets bored with slogans, he likes to talk about new ideas and if he meets something he does not know, he'll find a way to discover what it is. He will meet a lot of interesting people, but he'll never be able to hang around them a lot. He won't get bored with anybody who could stimulate him on any kind of topic, even if his nomadism will surround him of a weird circle of imaginary friends who can be stored in his luggage and keep him company wherever he goes.

    So do not date a guy who travels...seriously, don't! Nobody's forcing you! And if, unintentionally, fall in love with him, please bear with him, be patient, and rest assured that even if his life keeps dragging him away, he will do anything he can to come back to you even for just a brief afternoon.

    This is the first post of yours I read, and I must say it really hit home. Especially as I find myself struggling to find my way. You know, between following "The American Dream," the expensive car and the expensive house and the amazing career, and following my dream and passion of traveling the world.

    I started writing a blog to see if it would help me figure out my direction. I find myself struggling to explain my desires to family and friends. I just don't understand how they can't understand me haha

    Anyway, I love your post. Keep on inspiring the world!

  124. I am Mrs Sandy from USA, i want to share a testimony of my life to every one. i was married to my husband Williams Jack, i love him so much we have been married for 6 years now with three kids. when he went for a vacation to UK he meant a lady called Mary?, he told me that he is no longer interested in the marriage any more. i was so confuse and seeking for help, i don't know what to do until I met my friend miss Lina and told her about my problem. she told me not to worry about it that she had a similar problem before and introduce me to a man called Dr Joel who cast a spell on her ex and bring him back to her after 3 days. Miss Lina ask me to contact Dr Joel. I contacted him to help me bring back my husband and he ask me not to worry about it that the gods of his fore-fathers will fight for me. He told me by Three days he will re-unite me and my husband together. After three day my husband called and told me he is coming back to sought out things with me, I was surprise when I saw him and he started crying for forgiveness. Right now I am the happiest woman on earth for what this great spell caster did for me and my husband, you can contact Dr Joel on any problem in this world, he is very nice man, here is his contact eromosalelovespell@outlook.com He is the best spell caster how can help you within three days.

  125. you know i have spent 25 years traveling this globe in hope of find a woman that likes to travel as much as i do, but when i do meet them, normally for an hour in some airport we are going opposite directions and she is very... wary i guess i the right word, guess she thinks i am trying to con her into settling down or something... but i keep hopes up :)

  128. I totally disagree, maybe with ur title " don't date a traveller" Is just inappropriate because it speaks with every traveller, like me, but i am not like what you have described.
    I don't have a messy unkempt hair, i am absolutely not hard to please, yes i do crave for new experiences and adventures but i plan them accordingly depending on my work schedule because yes i work hard as an engineer and yes because i didn't wasted my college degree. I may not own an expensive car and watch but hey still got impressed with cars and would love to drive one. I maybe a traveller who knows how to pintch my own tent and screw my own fins but it doesn't mean I don't need a guy.
    Maybe you just dated a guy who was totally opposite YOU but not to "travellers".

    Please read this opposite blog too. :)

  129. I would like to be girl like that butl I still haven't enough courage, or maybe it's only naive dream. I'm not self-sufficient. Everything could change like a kaleidoscope if I had someone with me who also would like crazy, full of adventures, journeys and experiences life.

  133. I would have liked to be the first one to write such an article, as a boy. But I'm really glad a girl did it first. It made me fall in love for a moment.
    Thanks for that.

  134. A boy sent this article to me last year in December. He cared a lot about me and was just falling in love with me at this time. He said this article describes pretty much what he sees in me.

    That last December, when I read your article the first time, it made me cry. Nobody ever told me, that I can't hold a steady job, that I get bored with others, that I will never need that other person caring about me. But when I saw these words staring at me, I knew that it is true. It made me sad.

    It took me until today to dare coming back to this article to read it again. I knew most of the lines by heart though.

    And that boy? The one who unintentionally fell in love with me? He didn’t dare to keep me. He let me go...
