I love travelling. And travelling is best with a partner. Wouldn’t it be great to be with a guy who can be your partner in all your travel adventure? Not convinced why you should date a guy who is a travel bug? Here is Jason of trekeffect.com to give us 10 Reasons To Date a Guy Who Loves to Travel.
If Disney movies have you hung up on the hopelessness of finding Prince Charming, don’t give up hope just yet. Instead, try heading to the closest airport to find your soul mate. Finding a guy who loves to travel is, as far as I’m concerned, the best way to start finding your soul mate. Falling in love with a travel addict is one of the best ways to guarantee you’re in for an adventure that you won’t regret.
1. He’s Low Maintenance
The pressure’s off when you’re dating a guy who loves to travel. Trust me, he’s just as happy in a cramped hostel room as he is at home, and knows how to crash overnight in an airplane terminal. He’s used to eating somewhat dodgy finds, and surviving in less than ideal conditions. By comparison, your cooking, no matter how lacking, is bound to always be greeted with enthusiasm. And if you never make the bed, chances are he’ll be the last one to notice. You don’t always have to put your best foot forward because he knows how to accept everyone where they are at, and is happy in a variety of places and circumstances. Plus, if you do take the effort to clean the place up and cook something extra special, he’ll appreciate the effort.
2. He’s a Go-Getter
Traveling takes an active pursual; it is easier to stay at home, but those who love to travel and do so frequently spend a lot of time and energy being pro-active, chasing their dreams, and making their goals into reality. They know how to work around obstacles, deal with plans being changed, and prioritize their activities to incorporate more travel time. In the end, they’re the last kind of guys to let life happen to them, and the first ones to charge after life and make it what they want it to be. Dating a guy who loves to travel and follows his passions means you’re with a guy who won’t sit back when bad things happen. He’ll get up and keep charging, and help you keep going forward, too. Traveling helps everyone become more decisive, in charge, and pro-active. Dating a guy like that means that you won’t have to hand hold him through every life choice, but instead celebrate the victories with him.
3. He’s Interesting
Let’s face it, no one wants to sit across from a guy with absolutely nothing to talk about, or worse yet the guy who won’t shut up about his narcissistic lifestyle that revolves only around himself. But guys who love to travel are usually full of interesting stories, have a broadened perspective on life, and think outside the box. They’re fun to talk to, and inspiring to be around. Conversations don’t lag, and just hanging around them is entertaining enough. Boring dates are almost non-existent, and they know how to find joy in the weirdest and quirkiest of places. Dating guys who love to travel means that plenty of your dates will be full blown adventures or last minute flights across the country, but even just eating dinner together can be an adventure as well.
4. He’s Independent
It’s easy to have a relationship with healthy boundaries because guys who love to travel know how to be by themselves. They aren’t clingy, and they don’t need to survive. You’ll never fall into the “mom” role with them, because they know how to take care of themselves. They’ll happily include you when you can join them, but they can easily survive if you need to take off again. He’ll respect you and expect the same, and the fact that you both love being with each other won’t mean that you become unhealthily dependent on each other. This is the healthiest and best kind of relationship to be in, because it includes two strong people who can build each other up rather than trying to pull each other up.
5. He’s Easy To Introduce to Family and Friends
Guys who travel a lot are used to being out of place and out of their comfort zones. They’re at ease in a variety of social situations, and know how to strike up a conversation with just about anyone. When it comes to joining your friends in activities or meeting your family, he’ll easily be able to laugh, make friends, and put on a good face no matter how embarrassing it gets. Plus, he’s fun to introduce because he’s interesting, finds it easy to relate to people, and has tons of stories to entertain everyone with. No guarantees that there still won’t be awkward moments, but for the most part, joining two social circles together is easier with a guy who loves to travel rather than with a guy who’s never left his hometown. And his friends are much more likely to be more interesting as well!
6. He’s Smart
Frequent travelers are always being exposed to new cultures, ideas, and cultures. They’re always learning by researching and reading about new places they are traveling to or interested in. They are knowledgeable about things like geography, culture, and travel, and love to discover new ideas and think outside the box. Guys who travel a lot tend to have a lot of experience having their ideas challenged, and having to defend their opinions. All of this keeps their brain engaged and active, meaning that they tend to be smarter than other guys who waste time in front of the TV. Smarter guys are more fun to date because they challenge you to be better as well. They’re more likely to find success and be happy with who they are as a person, and be able to navigate through life.
7. He Knows How to Roll With the Punches
Life will always have its ups and downs, guaranteed, and relationships in general tend to get pretty strained whenever things look rough. Guys who travel frequently know how to adapt; they can make adjustments on the go, and they know how to keep the end in sight. They’ve had their fair share of missed flight connection, being stranded in the middle of an unknown area, and arriving in a foreign country without any luggage. Through it all, they know how to keep their cool and problem solve. These skills come into play in relationship as well, and help survive the storms in life. Plus, no one wants to date someone who falls apart every time something little comes up that throws a curveball.
8. He Will Never Be Materialistic
Guys who love to travel aren’t hung up on material possessions. You’ll never be arguing over that favorite poster or sofa because they just don’t care that much about things like that. He’s happy and more focused on things that last, rather than on physical goods. His priorities are in check, and fighting about finances will be much less likely to happen. He would rather spend his paycheck traveling that outfitting his apartment, so he’s learned how to do without when it comes to the extras that so many other people think are essential in life. As a result, he’s much more grounded and down to earth than other guys you’ll meet.
9. He Will Be Happy
Studies have proven many times over that the happiest people in the world are those who spend their resources on experiences, not on things. The guy who loves to travel is going to be less materialistic, and in return, happier, as he chooses to spend his time on experiences over and over again. Who wouldn’t love to date a guy who’s content and happy? Being in a relationship with that guy is much more fun that with someone who is obsessed with keeping up with the Jones and discontent in life. Instead, you’ll be dating the guy who loves life and has almost contagious happiness.
10. Life With Him Is Always Better Than Life Without Him
In the end, the best reason to date a guy who loves to travel is because you’re signing up for one of the biggest adventures of your life. Guys with that much enthusiasm for the world can’t help but share that with their significant other, and getting to be part of the wild ride they live is always interesting. Your relationship won’t get stale easily, and you’ll always have new things to talk about and challenges to conquer together. You both will build up memories that will last a lifetime, and your own horizons will be broadened so much by dating him. You’ll always be falling in love over and over with each other, because you’ll both be growing and changing together every day and every trip you take.
Guys who love to travel follow their passions, and when you become their passion, they’ll do everything they can to pursue you, keep you happy, and help you to enjoy life just as much as they do. Compared to any other guy you’ve dated, dating a guy who loves to travel will be the best choice you’ve ever made!
