Year-ago-me would have expected to be getting married by 29, and having a baby by 30, because that's what seemed to be expected by family and society.
And by society, I mean "Facebook." Year-ago-me was also in a relationship with someone who wanted all of those things, but wasn't fond of the three week trip around the world that year-and-a-half-ago-me had planned before we got together.
It Made Guys Appreciate the Wrong Things The few guys I did meet... I somehow got lucky, and met a very sweet 28 year old pediatric surgeon resident who didn't mind how much I traveled, because he was typically working anyway...
it was like the perfect marriage I thought I always wanted, except we had nothing in common besides our undergrad Biology degrees and uncommon work schedules.
It was in the foreign language dictionaries that lined my bookshelves, the photos of Prague, the Himalayas and the Caribbean that lined my staircase and in the way that I occasionally caught myself thinking in German or dreaming in Spanish. My entire outlook had been shaped by years of experiences to which my homebody boyfriend couldn’t even begin to relate. This isn’t going to work out, I’d thought, only this time I wasn’t joking. When you live in a country where only 30 percent of its citizens own passports, sometimes it seems like this “Must Love Travel” requirement I’ve placed on the dating profile of my life has condemned me to an eternity of spending nights watching Anthony Bordain: No Reservations alone.
Singles Travel International: Creating life-changing singles travel experiences and unique opportunities to meet the world…together!!! The day I saw there was a cruise without a single supplement was when I signed up. STI was fantastic from the office staff to our cruise hostesses June and Georgia.
For starters, I learned that there is this massive thing called a planet that is filled with millions of people, and many of them aren't assholes!
In fact, I'm pretty sure I thought I was in love twice while abroad, which made me realize that you never know where in the world your actual soulmate is.
I look forward to traveling with STI again in the future!
Up until about a year ago, I would have expected myself to be in a serious relationship right now, and getting engaged in five months, since that's when I'll be turning 28.
