Finding love while traveling

Finding love while traveling

Packing your bags and leaving on a jet plane is one of the most exhilarating experiences imaginable. When you have the freedom to leave everything behind – even for just a short while – the possibilities are endless.

You have the opportunity to explore new cities, learn new languages, try new things and meet new people, leading to lifelong friendships and, sometimes, something more.

New city, new experiences

Time feels different when you travel. Days seem longer, and a week in a new city can feel like an eternity. The people you meet when you travel become your best friends seemingly instantly, as you cling to one another in a strange and foreign place.

When you travel, you experience an openness that seems to be missing in the course of regular life, which makes it easy to meet and forge new relationships with people you’ve never met.

For example, striking up a conversation with a cute stranger while in line to get into a museum, or at a bar in the cool part of town, is a much easier feat when you’re not surrounded by your friends at your local pub. Traveling allows you to shed the skin of self-consciousness that we all walk around in.

But it’s not always easy…

Of course, traveling can be a challenge. It can be exhausting being away from home for long periods of time, and lacking the daily routine of life, work and family can be frustrating. If you’re traveling solo, you can experience periods of loneliness as you try to navigate new territory, looking for comfort in strange places.

If you’re traveling with friends or a partner, there can be tension when making decisions about how to spend your days, or your money. While nothing is without its bad days and mishaps, there’s no doubt that the experience of traveling is incredibly rewarding. After the long days, late nights and strange beds, returning home is a bittersweet feeling.

Finding love that lasts

Meeting people to date while traveling can be wonderful fun, but it can be dishearteningly fleeting. After all, it’s hard to sustain a relationship with someone who lives half away around the world.

There is another option, though. When you’re traveling, or when you’re about to set sail for new adventures, it’s always a good idea to check out dating websites such as eHarmony.ca, where you’ll meet truly compatible people. You might just find the perfect traveling companion there.

You can narrow your search to look only for people who live locally, or broaden it to search for potential partners in all the cities on your travel itinerary.
