Why Online Dating Is Great For Travellers

I’ve shared my love and bad luck stories many times on here before, I’m not shy or ashamed of my luckless past. As a long term traveller, it can be truly hard to keep up a relationship when you are travelling a lot. It can also be difficult to meet people while you’re busy moving around. And even worse – it can be hard for your dates or potential partners to trust you, as they feel you could move on again very soon and not care for them. To save time and effort when you travel, how about using online dating? There are so many dating sites these days, all hoping to help you find the love of your life. It is easy to organise Speed dating in London and dating events around the UK. Meet like-minded people at our amazing organized events. Here are my five reasons why online dating is great for travellers.

1.Fast to organise
Once you are registered on one of the dating websites, everything is fast to organise. You find your matches, or girls you might be interested in and get chatting. Over time, if you like them, you can of course meet up in real life. But the initial process and organise to meet the girls and start the chatting, is easy and fast, and of course it is normally in English, even as travellers.

2.Easy to set up
With the modern technology advancements these days, setting up a profile on an online dating agency has never been so easy. But my BIGGEST advice is don’t lie. Be honest about it. Tell your correct age, show a recent photo and be honest about your interests in life. If you lie, it can cause huge stress or depression to the other person. The most important thing you shouldn’t lie about is where you live.

3.Building trust before meeting
Because you are getting to know your potential dates or partners online, it means you can easily build up a trust. You can ask them a lot of personal questions. You can add them on social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Trust in any relationship takes time and this is another example of how important it can be.

4.Cultural Diversity
Because you are travelling a lot, you have a chance to meet with other people from other cultures and communities. This is brilliant as you can learn so much about other cultures, traits and habits. Down the years I dated with girls from South Africa, Hong Kong, Northern Ireland, China, Poland, Scotland, England, Germany etc. and it was always a total crazy experience, a new culture and a worldwide eye opener.

5.Confidence and no fear
Because you are dating on the move, you are also feeling very confident because you have reached a high level of confidence and no fear. This is why online dating is a superb way to break the ice on route to cementing a relationship that will last longer and grow in strength day by day. Be honest, be confident and have no fear.

  • Yes I do agree with your blog content. Online dating is always a good thing for the travelers. Thanks for sharing great informative stuff here with us.

  • Very good read, I agree with you on using online dating websites or apps. They can connect you to some really good people and you can have good experiences, but there is some risk associated with it too because I believe it’s a little difficult to build trust in a short time with a complete stranger. I am wondering if you are still in contact with all the women you dated in different countries? and how often do you see them?
