Never date a girl who travels ...

She’s the one with the messy, unkempt hair colored by the sun. Her skin is now far from fair like it once was. Not even sun kissed. It’s burnt with multiple tan lines, wounds and bites here and there. But for every flaw on her skin, she has an interesting story to tell.
Never go out with a girl who travels. She is hard to seduce. The usual appointment cine-restaurant goes the blazer to the point of killing slowly. What she wants most in the world are new adventures and new experiences. Your new car and your big watch, she does not care ... that's not what impresses her. She prefers by far climbing a cliff or jumping from an airplane, than listening to you packing for material things.
Never go out with a girl who travels because she's going to annoy you to book a plane ticket every time she comes across a crazy deal. She will not go to New City Gas to party, let alone pay 100 $ to see Avicii. She knows very well that a bawdy weekend to party is the equivalent of a week in a place so much more exciting.
Chances are, she can’t hold a steady job. Or she’s probably daydreaming about quitting. She doesn’t want to keep working her ass off for someone else’s dream. She has her own and is working towards it. She is a freelancer. She makes money from designing, writing, photography or something that requires creativity and imagination. Don’t waste her time complaining about your boring job.
Never go out with a girl who travels. She probably wasted her baccalaureate and changed career altogether. She now teaches scuba diving or has become a yoga teacher. She is not sure when she will receive her next pay check. Except that she does not want to work like a robot every day. She takes what life has to offer and challenges you to do the same.
Never go out with a girl who travelsbecause she chose a way of life based on uncertainty. Forget about projects or having a permanent address. She goes with the "flow" and follows her heart. She dances at her own pace. She does not wear a watch. The cycle of his days is established by the sun and the moon. When the call of the waves is heard, the life around her stops and she becomes carefree about everything around her. On the other hand, she learned that the most important thing in the world is not just surfing ...
Never go out with a girl who travels because she tends to let people know how she thinks. She will never try to impress your parents or friends. She understands the notion of respect, but will not hesitate to give her opinion on topics of global news or social responsibility.
She will never need you. She knows how to pitch a tent and screw her own fins without your help. She cooks well and doesn’t need you to pay for her meals. She is too independent and wont care whether you travel with her or not. She will forget to check in with you when she arrives at her destination. She’s busy living in the present. She talks to strangers. She will meet many interesting, like-minded people from around the world who share her passion and dreams. She will be bored with you.
So never date a girl who travels unless you can keep up with her. And if you unintentionally fall in love with one, don’t you dare keep her. Let her go.
