We work with so many single professional clients who travel a lot for their career or pleasure.
They all typically remark about how often they meet interesting singles while traveling either at the airport, hotel bars or on holiday. They always seem perplexed as to why this happens. “How come it’s easier for me to meet someone when I’m traveling than in my own backyard?” they ask. Simple. You’re not “you”. Let me clarify; you’re a different you. A lighter, less stressed, more engaging and connected you. A better version of you. A “you” that is interested and interesting.
If you could date like you travel, you would not only have more fun but you would attract more people to you. Being fun and having fun makes you more attractive. Being more attractive makes you a magnet. Being a magnet means you’re killing it with the opposite sex. Which means you have a lot of choices.
Apply these four “date like you travel” principles on your next date and you will feel a remarkable difference in your experience:
1. When you first arrive in a new place, you automatically feel more enchanted, open and aware of your surroundings. Your curiosity grows and shows. Your “green light” is beaming. These are all qualities that make you extremely attractive in the dating world.
2. It’s natural to have a strong desire to engage when you travel to a new place. You want to learn about the country’s people, their culture, history, etc.. A deep need to connect is an essential ingredient in dating.
3. You reserve judgment. Hopefully when you travel, you don’t expect the same experience that you’re used to in your own country. The joy of traveling is experiencing a new perspective that you embrace wholeheartedly. Same with dating. Each potential date is like new terrain to discover with an open mind. Be willing to really see who the person is and don’t expect perfection.
4. You are not attached to the outcome. When you travel for pleasure, you have no expectations. You’re not doing it for any reason other than exploring something different, expanding your horizons, getting out of your comfort zone and experiencing new pleasures. You have no agenda other than to enjoy your precious time moment to moment. That is the only way you should be approaching your dating experience. Like a meaningful adventure, not a means to an end.
