When I was single I used to have some romances when I was travelling. Meeting and sometimes dating some of the exotic guys I met was part of the general fun of travelling.
I have been advised that I would be wise to point out here that by romance and dating, I do not mean sleeping around. But if dating means sleeping around for others, by all means tell your stories.
For some reason, while visiting other places I seem to meet guys that are from or near my home state. It's not that I don't like exotic guys either; I guess it's just a small world. I did meet some German guys in New Orleans who were really fun and def loved to drink.
Does it count if I met the love of my life traveling?
I'm not much of a flirt, but something about being in a new country gives you that extra confidence, or maybe it's the relaxed, carefree attitude because it's a vacation...
Or maybe it's just down to having time to get to know people, or meeting people of a similar wavelength, or meeting way more people than you ever would back in "real life".
While travelling I focus more on myself, and I am more relaxed. Had some minor relations around, but nothing serious.
It is not the exoticism though, but more the inner attitude while travelling and finding new things.
but of course that is one of the best things about traveling. all the surf spots I have been to are always fun to meet women.
my whole blog is based on the pursuit of finding love and the more physical pursuit that young males search for (when I don't have a person I'm particularly in love)...
sadly, I have had close to 0 success at finding love. Or rather, I've found in but the feelings weren't mutual or I was too shy to follow through or a well timed interruption stopped me from stating my feelings...
I have just come back from Petra and I have met a very nice guy there. I would like to speak to you, so can tell me about your experience.This is my email address. Can you send me your email, so I can contact you? I'm very confuse now

I think almost everyone has had some type of romance whilst in an exotic country. Most people tend to drink more alcohol, I know a lot of Brits will be in their swim suits the second they feel the sun so a lot more flesh will be on show, everyone is happy to be somewhere that is 'different' from where they live & you are guarenteed to meet someone you have something in common with as a lot of other people will also be in the same position. I had a holiday romance when I was 19 that turned into a 2 year relationship but things are VERY different once you are back home.
Timely post..I met my partner in Thailand (we are both Aussies who lived in the same state about 100km apart - we now live together a year and now 8 countries later) - There is an element of truth about the Romantic Gigolos and Chris and Nikkis comments - they are everywhere except PNG. Looking at it from a locals viewpoint..along come women who are wanting to get some sun and into a bikini and party hard and drink big, easy pickings. Ive met a few ladies and guys who have local boyfriends/girlfriends and are going through the long distance relationship, sending money, spending up to go back to spend more time with this wonderful exotic lover on a tropical island. Have only met a few people who have managed to transport the romance back home and have it work. Just last week in Indo we met a young swedish lass who was crying on a beach alone..she had travelled all that way to suprise her fiance - who was unfortunately busy with his American Fiance.
For the record..I do think we OLD people travelling helped cheer her up when we took her out for her first scuba dive. Poor girl had been sending this guy money for a year to help him financially. I wonder how many girlfriends, fiances and how much money he had raked in over the years.
Not to say it doesnt always work - we are very happy together - at home and on the road.
