Travel: it’s exciting, it’s interesting, and it can teach us so many things. Since traveling encompasses so many things; it makes sense that dating a girl who travels will offer the same experiences right? If you come across a girl who travels (or a guy), here are a few things you should know when dating them.
1. You will NEVER be bored
She is spontaneous! Will she take a weekend trip to a nearby city, or fly across the country? If she has the means, she will find a way. And better yet, she’ll want you to come with! Even when she’s not traveling, she’ll always have ideas for you both to do while at home.
2. She can BUDGET
She is financially smart. Unfortunately (sigh), traveling is expensive. She doesn’t waste her money on copious amounts of liquor or a shopping spree every other weekend. This also means she may have given up certain “luxuries” and has even found ways to get creative and thrifty.
3. She always looking to better herself.
Whether physically, mentally, or spiritually, she wants to grow as a person. Traveling turns you into one of the best students. There is so much to learn from traveling, and seeing the world in person is better education than any book can offer. Even when she’s not in a new city, she’s focusing on her next project. She’s continually on a journey of self-improvement.
4. Things will NOT impress her.
Your fancy car? Nope. Large house? Nada. Motorcycle, 4-wheeler, boat, AND a snowmobile? Think again. Don’t worry, this does not mean taking her on extravagant vacations will impress her. Experiences will impress her. Take her to a museum or a new restaurant she’s never been to. Wander around downtown for the afternoon. Spend time with her rather than showering her with stuff.
5. She has a happy soul.
She loves life so much that she wants to experience it all over the world. Traveling helps her see how other people live and their overall culture and to be thankful for her own life and home country. With having so much love in your heart for other countries, how can you NOT be genuinely happy?
6. She can be stubborn…
The girl who travels often has goals and plans and is determined to reach them, travel related or not. She has an ever growing list of “things to do, places to go, and people to see.” She is a hard worker, even if it means she’s a little stubborn along the way. (At least it’s the good kind of stubborn!)
7. She is easy to please.
Any traveler will tell you that, though they enjoy adventures, they adore the simple things in life. They just want to experience these “simple things” all over the world. After all, sunsets in the United States can be vastly different than sunsets in Brazil and Australia. From gazing at sunsets to dipping her toes in a river to cool off, the girl who travels will want to experience these simple pleasures with you.
Are you a travel-loving girl? Would you agree with these? I’d love to hear what else you would add!
