One of the things I considered about becoming a digital nomad was would I be single for the rest of my life? Yes, it’s easy to have flings while you’re abroad but what are the chances of a meaningful relationship blossoming? I often worried that I would miss out on finding a significant other because I hadn’t settled into one place.
The Risk and the Reward
When I set out on my journey, it didn’t take long for me to connect with a guy. We fell in love, moved to Europe and had an adventurous life thereafter. Okay, it’s not always that easy. Many of the trails and tribulations of traveling are prevalent in our relationship. You know, language and cultural differences that make it more difficult to understand one another. There are a great many benefits though, I wrote a lifehack article about it sometime ago that got a few thousand clicks, making me think that there are many who find love abroad.
Here’s My Story
I think the more you travel the world, the more likely you’ll find the absolute right person for you. It’s more a question of whether you’re willing to take the risk of seeing where it goes. I was pretty lucky because I randomly met up with my digital nomad relationship many times in Asia. Once we started seeing each other, we had three months traveling in Asia together to get a grasp on the fundamentals of being together. Many of my close friends who have become expats have all found love.
Where Can People Met Up?
In Chiangmai, Northern Thailand, there are hubs where digital nomads go to get their work done. They’re pretty popular because so many people are working from home now. Sometimes, you have to change your geography to get the work juices going. There are also tons of meet up groups so you’re bound to meet like-minded people. Is it really any easier to find love in the city center of Vancouver, Toronto or small town anywhere?
In conclusion, I think if you want a relationship, it doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re doing. It ha a lot to do with how open you are and if you’re willing to take a little bit of risk. In my experience, people are more open when they’re traveling around and you can start a romance amongst all things new. It’s an adventure and a dream to explore new places together and in a way, I think it propels love in some way.
