Dating for romance internationally
I’m Megan from Australia, and over the last 5 years I’ve spent an accumulation of 6 months out of every year abroad.So it’s not surprising that I met the love of my life while traveling. I still love the reactions we get when people ask “so you’re from Australia, he’s from America – where did you both meet? After having both finished the Mt Kilimanjaro climb, we met through mutual travelers at the hotel at the bottom of the mountain.Regardless of how many weeks, months, years you might’ve spent with that person, the memories you created and shared with them will last forever.Abroad relationships will show you how to appreciate things for what they were and not how they may have ended.Although my abroad romance didn’t last much longer than my abroad experience did, I can say it taught me more than any of the classes I took along the way.
Nothing quite compares to exploring a new place with someone you have feelings for. With regular relationships, you’ll spend a lot of energy just to ensure you and your significant other don’t have many dull moments.
A lot of the same things you wouldn’t notice about another person until, say, months into knowing this person -- you can learn within days of travelling with him or her.
You won’t understand the true nature of companionship until you’re in a foreign place alongside someone who’s equally as foreign to it as you are.
If it lasted three years -- only to blow up in their face -- they’ll call it a waste.
Well, regardless of how long you might’ve lasted with the person who you had your abroad romance with, after your time abroad, it’s impossible to define these types of relationships by any amount of time.
