‘Should’ is probably a strong verb to use and that’s pretty much the point of this post. And the point is to make those looking for a date see and realize that dating a traveler is the best oddball idea. Let me set the record straight though that I’m not in any way referring to myself. Beginning travelers like me, who have lots to learn about the world out there, do not count.
Anyway, here are some reasons travelers can be a good catch.
They can show you that travel is more than just a hobby – ultimately, it’s another (and better) way of looking at life and the world. On your first date, instead of roses or chocolates, they’ll give you a unique token he’s bought from one of his travels outside the country. A ref magnet perhaps or a gong.
They appreciate small things like how blue is the sky, how serene does the stream runs through or even just a little bird. I really don’t have much to say about this. They are just simple people who appreciate the world we live in.
3. They know how to shut up and listen.
When they travel, they observe, they listen to locals and they walk away with great insight, knowledge and experience. They’re always willing to learn and they have an open mind about different things, having been exposed to different beliefs, culture and ways of living.
4. They can be totally independent.
That’s not completely a bad thing and it goes to show that they’re hardly clingy, they can give you the space you want every once in a while. Don’t you always complain about not having time for yourself? Well, a traveler can give you that – space, time and more, while he enjoys traveling at some place around the country.
5. They are adaptable.
They have traveled enough so they know for sure that things can go wrong sometimes. In such stressful situations, they hardly panic, for example, Situations like getting lost and having no room to stay at he middle of the nigh, they just go with the flow and they turn things around. they are the last ones to give up
6. They are good in finance
Because their priority is traveling, they developed this financial management skills. They work their butt off to save, do sidelines and make extra income by blogging. With belts always tight and barely spending on a whim, they’re likely good in budgeting and finances. They know how to generate funds to get out there on the road.
They love the thrill, the fun, the excitement – all the intense (but positive) feelings that come with traveling. Don’t be surprised if they’ll tell you that his hobbies are not watching TV or surfing the Internet.
They would bungee jump from a 233meter tower, just for the thrill of it. They’d jump from a 50ft cliff all for the fun of it. Travelers will do anything just for that thrill and excitement
8. They Love Having Fun
Travelers, if I may say are like brothers and sisters separated from birth that when they come together they just easily get along and one thing is for sure having fun is definitely like drinking water for us giving you a natural high!
One day, they’ll be all serious about SEO and making money with their blogs. But the next, they’ll be making you laugh with all the travel jokes they’ve learned on the road. You never know what they’d want to do next! One minute they’re just around the city, but when you turn around, they’re already flying to Siem Reap! Right, Crazy people are the best to be with! There’s no dull moment, no second where you won’t be enjoying or learning from the experiences you’re getting from them.
10. They are totally romantic
While many travelers seem to be single at the moment, probably because of their travel schedule, there’s nobody more perfect to be romantic with than the ones that enjoy nature’s beauty. Most women want chocolates, a movie, flowers and the total package. But the traveler, will enjoy the romantic sunset of Boracay. They’ll enjoy the soft breeze in Tagaytay, simply sitting on a bench and looking out into the beautiful Mt. Taal. They’ll enjoy just walking along the shores of a white beach, talking, laughing with you. Romance for them, is simply not just the standard sweet gestures. It’s the unforgettable blend of being with the one they love and communing with nature at the same time.
11. They are office Allergies
They will stay out there on the road exploring the world and discovering new things rather than work at the office, so they can spend some quality time. Since they always like being on the road, they will most likely spend more time with their loved ones. And if your traveler’s mate you might be getting a little more than just hugs and kisses, A free trip.
12. smart, very smart
As much as many would like to believe, being book smart only is not going to get you to the top of the world. Traveling, even without all the books, can teach you a wide variety of things – far more than the books will ever be able to teach you. Dating a traveler can ensure you that you are dating someone smart, someone you can talk to with brains and someone you can actually get into a deep and meaningful conversation with.
If there’s someone you want to talk to about today’s economy, how the tourism industry is going or how the ethnic tribes in Baguio have been mistaken to be unfriendly. They have more experience with different kinds of things, thus, when you talk to a traveler, you can’t help but realize…damn, your world, is definitely not that small.
14. Travelers are nerds in some point of their lives
Have you ever tried creating an itinerary? Have you ever tried constructing a budget to a place you’d never been in before? Have you ever tried staying up late at night just to find good dates for a trip at cheap promos? Travelers have. Travelers are nerds in some point of their lives. They take hours searching over the internet, reading pocketbooks of guides, scouring though guidebooks, Lonely Planet and more just to get the information about it. And the best thing about a traveler being a nerd? It makes us even sexier.
Travelers are exciting to be around, they are the best example for magnetism. They have stories about everything, they’ve experienced just about any situation and they are on the go, all the time. They never run out of stories to tell.
From that fun-filled weekend in Cebu, to that amazing experience in Mt. Pinatubo, the people they meet while climbing mountains, the people that inspire them – it’s a date where you’ll definitely NEVER get bored, keeps people searching for them, wanting to be with them, wanting to be near them, envious of how happy they are in their lives of how fulfilled they are
