I’ve grown accustomed to thinking long distance relationships are normal, but I guess you have to actually get past the dating stage to reach them.
I can see why someone wouldn’t be interested in trying to seriously date someone who travels so often, but I also can see why someone would.
I’m pretty sure I’ve deterred a lot of dating opportunities because I refused to shut my laptop.
I know damn well that if I don’t work my ass off, I don’t get to travel, so I spend a good 10-12 hours of my day glued to my laptop, writing, editing, pitching, emailing, and even Airbnb-ing, all so that I can make enough to sustain myself, and keep traveling.
You have to be intuitive and follow your gut when you travel a lot.
One wrong decision can get you in a lot of trouble, or worse…can make you miss out on something awesome.
Communication, in fact, may be limited to a phone call only once a day. Posted: 7/24/2007 PM: I used to travel a lot for work, same as you 3 weeks of every month. Jul 24, 2007 · Dating someone who travels for work.
But at the end dating someone who travels a lot the day, if the LW wants to maximize his chances of success in the relationship game, he should aim to move away from a traveling career within the next couple of years if not ASAP. It doesn't really matter what I say, dahing the guy faded, he faded. Posted: 7/24/2007 PM: I used to travel daying lot somrone work, same as you 3 weeks of every month.
Part of traveling is challenging yourself and pushing your limits.Just like I have this grand idea in my head that I’m going to just go travel the world, I also seriously think that one day I’m going to just happen to stumble upon my traveling soulmate, so I tend to just wait for it to happen.The problem with that is that I can actually make traveling the world happen, but fate is a little bit harder to tackle.I can pick up on peoples’ personalities as easily as I can assess a potentially dangerous situation, but just like I’d immediately avoid the latter, I’m guilty of doing the same to the former. Sure, I might not allow enough time to develop feelings, but I don’t want to be with someone who I have to develop feelings for, I want them to already be there. When I want something, I usually want it right away, which is why I usually end up traveling alone.Then once I have it, and I’m there, I try to do everything and end up forgetting how much time has passed.I know I’m smart, I know I’m well traveled, and I think I’m hilarious, so put that all together and you’ll get one really real girl who grimaces at the thought of pretending to be cute and flirty on a first date.Feed me some wine though and it’s a totally different story.“Well, she’s bi-coastal, she’s in real estate, and you’re always traveling.” I scoffed as my face scrunched into resting-bitch-mode, thinking, “You’re damn f*cking right I’m always traveling.” After my brain stopped registering the comment as a quasi-compliment, it started wondering what in the hell this guy was talking about. Second of all, I have no idea how being bi-coastal or in Real Estate translates to undateable, and third of all, if guys prefer girls who don’t travel, then sign me up for the lifetime singles program. Either way, I don’t have any regrets, and I’ll continue to keep traveling, but I can’t help but wonder if this is why that random guy said what he did.I suppose it’s a bit hard to date someone when they’re never home.Apparently that sort of ambition is only attractive to a certain extent…my level is pretty much a turn off.It’s a no-brainer that someone who likes to travel would want to be with someone who also likes to travel, right?
