Always Date a Girl who Travels

A short rebuttal to the article, Don’t Date a Girl Who Travels (link is at the bottom of the page). While I thought it was a great read with 85% accuracy, I believe it should have been written in a more positive light. A girl who travels is one of a kind, who wouldn’t want to date a rare gem like that? Every yin needs its yang. For all you single ladies with a gypsy soul, here’s to you & your future better half.

Always date a girl who travels, it may be short lived but you won’t regret it. She’s a little out there and a lot different from what you are use to but her life strikes a chord in you that normal doesn’t. She’s free, unleashed, soaring with wings spread wide but she holds a sense of love and passion for the world that can make you want to pack your bags.

Always date a girl who travels. Normal will catch her attention. Grounded, stable and mature will polarize her to you like a magnet but it won’t keep her there for long. Always date a girl who travels because finding a way to stay in her life will ignite your soul and turn your world upside down. She will prove that everyone, even you, has a sense of freedom and wanderlust and if you are brave enough, she will show you the door that will uncage it all.

Always date a girl who travels. She lives out of a suitcase and sleeps on the floor. She’s independent and strong. She wants to do it on her own, it’s the only way she knows how. Your money might impress her at first. Your job with a steady income might make her consider slowing down. Your place to call home with a bed thats not made of air may entice her and your close community of friends may make her jealous. Always date a girl who travels because after all is pondered on, she will still choose to go her own way. She will still choose her love of life over yours. Always date a girl who travels because putting her dreams first will inspire you to do the same, even if just for a moment.

Always date a girl that travels, she will continue to show you that being here on Earth is a spontaneous blessing with jaw dropping views around every corner. She will prove that life is hard no matter what you do. That jet-setting the world comes with extreme highs and lows. That even inside of her amazing cool and wild ways, Mondays still feel the same and Friday nights still call your name. She will be blunt and honest and surprisingly insecure. She will question her path less chosen and wonder if she will ever feel like she could belong again. Always date a girl who travels because she needs your voice of reason and confidence. She needs to hear that she hasn’t fucked up and that taking a different route is messy but admirable. Always date a girl who travels because she will absorb your words like a sponge, she will be an amazing listener and life long friend. Always date a girl who travels because she will inspire others to be brave, free and to pursue their dreams and you will inspire her to keep going.

Always date a girl who travels because at the end of the day no one wants to feel alone. Strong willed, free as a bird, Ms. Independent wants to feel wanted too. Always date a girl who travels, she will keep going on adventures and seeking out new gems in this world, with or without you. She will continue to find great friends from all walks of life, talk to everyone, make memories and experience culture. She will soar her entire life and never slow down. She will continue to pursue her dreams until she succeeds, she will never give up on anything she wants. She will make you want to live your life on the edge. If your lucky enough to date a girl who always travels then you might be lucky enough to be her camera guy on the next trip. (Who do you think snaps all those fantastic pictures?) Always date a girl who travels because you can almost guarantee that her biggest risk and adventure in life would be you.

Don't Date A Girl Who Travels

She’s the one with the messy unkempt hair colored by the sun. Her skin is now far from fair like it once was. Not even sun kissed. It’s burnt with multiple tan lines, wounds and bites here and there. But for every flaw on her skin, she has an interesting story to tell.

Don’t date a girl who travels. She is hard to please. The usual dinner-movie date at the mall will suck the life out of her. Her soul craves for new experiences and adventures. She will be unimpressed with your new car and your expensive watch. She would rather climb a rock or jump out of an airplane than hear you brag about it.

Don’t date a girl who travels because she will bug you to book a flight every time there’s an airline seat sale. She wont party at Republiq. And she will never pay over $100 for Avicii because she knows that one weekend of clubbing is equivalent to one week somewhere far more exciting.

Chances are, she can’t hold a steady job. Or she’s probably daydreaming about quitting. She doesn’t want to keep working her ass off for someone else’s dream. She has her own and is working towards it. She is a freelancer. She makes money from designing, writing, photography or something that requires creativity and imagination. Don’t waste her time complaining about your boring job.

Don’t date a girl who travels. She might have wasted her college degree and switched careers entirely. She is now a dive instructor or a yoga teacher. She’s not sure when the next paycheck is coming. But she doesn’t work like a robot all day, she goes out and takes what life has to offer and challenges you to do the same.

Don’t date a girl who travels for she has chosen a life of uncertainty. She doesn’t have a plan or a permanent address. She goes with the flow and follows her heart. She dances to the beat of her own drum. She doesn’t wear a watch. Her days are ruled by the sun and the moon. When the waves are calling, life stops and she will be oblivious to everything else for a moment. But she has learned that the most important thing in life isn’t surfing.

Don’t date a girl who travels as she tends to speak her mind. She will never try to impress your parents or friends. She knows respect, but isn’t afraid to hold a debate about global issues or social responsibility.

She will never need you. She knows how to pitch a tent and screw her own fins without your help. She cooks well and doesn’t need you to pay for her meals. She is too independent and wont care whether you travel with her or not. She will forget to check in with you when she arrives at her destination. She’s busy living in the present. She talks to strangers. She will meet many interesting, like-minded people from around the world who share her passion and dreams. She will be bored with you.

So never date a girl who travels unless you can keep up with her. And if you unintentionally fall in love with one, don’t you dare keep her. Let her go.
