Regardless of what type of relationship one might be searching for, it’s a sifting and sorting game. For those seeking  the “romantic” longterm kind there will be many candidates passing through who won’t fit the criteria . Among these I’d put newly singles. In my opinion if you’re coming out of a long relationship and …

A salut to singles choosing the online dating experience (you deserve credit)!

4 months ago I decided to set off on a 6 month journey across the online dating terrain. I’m no stranger to online meeting platforms. While traveling I’ve discovered it’s the simplest way to get in touch with locals. What’s distinctly different this time around is the intention behind circling around the dating pool. I’m …

Happy birthday to me (traveling solo and breaking old patterns)

The perks of travelling blended with trifles like culture clashes, language barriers and constantly getting astray, has …
