A girl who travels

Written by a lovely lady named Adi:

She’s the one with the messy unkempt hair colored by the sun. Her skin is far from fair like it once was. Not even sun kissed. It’s beautifully aged with lines, scars and sometimes bites here and there. But for every flaw on her skin, she has an interesting story to tell.

Don’t date a girl who travels. She is hard to please. The usual dinner-movie date isn’t really her thing. Her soul craves new experiences and adventures. She will be unimpressed with your new car and your expensive watch. She would rather climb a rock or jump out of an airplane.

Chances are, she hasn’t held a steady job. Or she’s probably daydreaming about quitting, unless she works for herself. 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 date a girl who travels for she has chosen a life of uncertainty. She goes with the flow and follows her heart. She dances to the beat of her own drum. She doesn’t wear a watch, nor does she check her phone incessantly while you’re together. Her days are ruled by the sun and the moon. When the waves are calling, life stops and she will be oblivious to everything else for a moment. But she has learned the importance of those moments when you answer those calls.

Don’t date a girl who travels as she tends to speak her mind. She will never try to impress your parents or friends. She knows respect, but isn’t afraid to hold a debate about issues in which she believes.

She will never need you. She knows how to pitch a tent and make a fire without your help. She cooks well and doesn’t need you to pay for her meals. She is independent and won’t mind 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.

So don’t 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.
