From the article:
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.
Basically, the sum of the article is that you will bore the heck out of a girl who travels (and even though it isn’t said explicitly, the article is drowning in “she’ll think she’s better than you”).
I’m not surprised some people believe this. I ran into an ex a few years after a break up and we started having that awkward “how are you doing” conversation. He asked me if I was still traveling, and then kinda smiled and said, “At a certain point after our break up, I realized it wouldn’t have worked out in a perfect world either because you are a traveler, and well, you don’t stay in one place.”
But to be honest, when I’m traveling extensively I miss things like grocery shopping. And I tend to embrace the mundane sometimes while traveling. On a particularly long clip of traveling from place to place, after having lots of great experiences in new cities, I spent my night in San Francisco watching a marathon of the Star Trek movies.
And my husband wooed me with pizza and a showing of North by Northwest.
So personally, I would only be bored at the movie theater if the movie isn’t particularly good.
What are your thoughts on this article and how it depicts women travelers?
My opinion is somewhat clear in this blog post, but I reacted strongly to some points that I’ll hold back on for now.
