Between work and travel, it may be becoming increasingly hard to find time to socialize and take some time for yourself. Those among you who are looking for relationships might be unsure as to where you can get to know someone when you’re on the road. No fear, because we’ve thought about it and we’ve got some ideas on how and where you can get the ball rolling!
Calling all singles! Yes, you’re available, but always on the go. No fear, because there are quite a few ways you can meet new people and form new friendships in this day and age. And as hard as it is to believe, not all of them are digital!
You may not realize it but your travel may come in handy when looking for a mate. Opportunities for making pleasurable connections are everywhere: on planes, trains, and even automobiles! There is no harm in striking a casual conversation with your fellow traveller, and who knows, you may find something in common!
This is an app that allows you to connect with your fellow passengers, set to revolutionize air travel. It uses your social media profiles to come up with compatible travellers you can chit-chat with.
Airports and train stations are also great places to meet someone; grab a drink at the bar or a café and take it old school by asking a local about their city – it’s an easy icebreaker, and everyone wants to brag about their hometowns!
Mingling in the evening is also very popular; make sure to swing by some bars in town, and keep an eye out for social events such as Singles’ nights and Speed Dating – some people swear by it.
If all that fails, then you can explore the myriad of options available to you in this digital age: dating websites and apps are available by the hundreds. All you need to do is create an online profile, and a carefully coded computer algorithm will do the rest.
Meetup.com and Tripr
These platforms aim to bring together people in the same vicinity. The website finds and creates a literal ‘meet up’ for people signed on to its service, and is a great way to meet fellow travellers and well as locals near you. Tripr, on the other hand, just leads you to other members without setting up a get-together. Fingers crossed an online match leads to an offline association!
We realize it is not always easy to befriend someone when you’re on a trip, but we hope we’ve made it a bit easier! Just remember, even if it doesn’t seem like a potential match, you will still have made a new friend.
