He does not have the same passion for travel as I do and just wondering if it can work or should I move on and find someone with the same passion.
My boyfriend of 12 years, and father of my child is not as into travelling as I am. In fact, most of the relatively small amount of it has done has been with me.
I think, these relationships can work. In fact, I think opposites attract because there is more chemistry between them. There is also more conflict though, especially during times of stress. Id say, how successful one of these opposites attract relationships is depends on how well you can learn to communicate what you want, negoticate to get it, learn to share time money childcare...
Anyway, how is your relationship going, Lorianne? You posted this months ago, so you likely decided what to do by now.
When I see so many couples on this site who have the same passion and do RTW trips together it makes me want it more.
It is also nice when there is somebody at home, who is interested in getting your emails from far flung places, and who takes care of your banking, child, pet, plants... They dont have to always be with you, to be connected to you and your travels. What is important in my opinion for a relationship is that you live and let live, rather than be interested in the same things and do the the same things.
I just wanted to see if there were people out there who do deal with it and succeed.
Here is my boyfriend on one of the occasional trips he takes with me, taking a healthy interest in the travel bible. 😉 This photo was taken in Delhi, India, a few years ago. There are a few more examples of us in exotic places together in my blogs, for anyone who is curious. 😊
