i think meeting new people is no problem. Meeting nice and interesting and good-looking people is.

I met this Australian guy who has this theory:

He says, starting with the most beautiful girl in the room, talk to EVERYONE. Eventually, odds are, you'll pull. He was serious too, bless him!

from an aussie chicks point of view..there are lots of idiot men out there and lots of idiot girls
im 28 and im single, ive had a couple of long term relationships but all have been disasters.
the thing that gets me into trouble is that i am really independant. i like to do my own thing and will say if saything is bothering me and wont not say anything if something is bothering me.
most guys and girls find this intimidating.
sucks i guess but that is me and im not going to pretend im someone im not i supose. unfortuanltely it does come with at teh consequences of being elimiated and lonely at times.
so i can understand how you feel

Yeah, the best thing to do is just be yourself, wouldnt you prefer to be with someone who likes you for you rather than trying too impress someone all the time! just be yourself and you'll find the right person (also what people do say is when your looking for someone you wont find them, but as soon as you stop looking you'll find the right person)

I must admit that I laugh when I hear people saying things like "that's just the way I am, and I don't change for anybody".

Is getting up everyday and going to work to please your boss to earn some money the real "you"?

What this site really needs is a dating room for travellers, think about it, you can make a post..single, attractive bloke, big time traveller but has not found the right mate yet, loves carlsberg export, reading a good book with a nice hot cup of tea, running of to south america for a year maybe two or looking to meet up with a girl like myself who also loves the life as a traveller...

I think it could work. I mean, how hard is it to find people like us, well i guess not that hard if you are already on the trail, but most of them just turn into one nighters cause your going to england the next day and she is going to france the next....but if given a chance to meet before and work out a travel plan together...who knows..could have TP wedding bells ringing.

Hey where is a moderator when you need one, i think i may be on to something.....

What an amazing idea!
I seriously think this should be done, I am so lonely since I have been home from travelling and this site has actually helped a lot, just reading it, but if there was a kind of dating thing where I could meet likeminded people, then I'd be the first to sign up!!!

I think travellers are a race apart. I love travelling because I love to meet new people and see countries which will open my mind even wider. When I come home, I normally enter into depression, if it wasnt for the organization of my next trip. I really dont feel connected to most of the people around me. They born, live and die in the same place. I guess it´s why I havent meet anyone because when the big adventure is to go to the local. I admit that I switch off.
