Last night I was on the Delta flight from Atlanta to Toronto at 9:49, and there was a group of models coming back from a photo shoot in Mexico. 3 women (SMOKING HOT), 2 guys and a photographer.

I was praying as we got on the plane, "please, please, please God, let them sit next to me." Maybe, I was thinking, this would be my chance to meet the "one," and she would be a supermodel too boot!

No such luck. Some dude in a suit sits down beside me and says, "you aren't the girl in the pink shirt."

"Neither are you," I replied.

Damn my luck. At least I got to look at them in the waiting lounge.

Hey shells, you will most probably be meeting some surfer dude in Australia. Apparently, it's the easiest thing to do! My friend's been to Aus twice and she's had luck both times and with surfers so be on the lookout! They will definitely find you and you will definitely find them! Now, next step is for me to book my ticket to Aus!

I met a girl 15 years ago on my travels.

We shared some very special times together over a short period.

I'm happily married, but I still think of her at times.

She probably wouldn't remember me now.....

It's possible anywhere in the world eh but the thought of semi clad males surfing beats being chatted up in a bar full of pissed up twats
I can't wait to check out the talent on my travels

Just love these stories.

I'm generally very cynical about holiday/travel romance type things. Although I've heard one or two success stories myself.

I came out of a long, serious relationship earlier this year so having been single with not a sniff of a man in ages I'm looking forward to my travels! Bring it on! ;)

A well-travelled friend gave me the advice: "don't whatever you do fall in love while you're travelling"

What does anyone else think? Too much potential for hurt? How would it ever last when you get back home?

I (Canadian) met my boyfriend (Irish) a year ago in Paris (of all places...). He just arrived last week for a year-long internship here, and is now just a few hours from me. We've been back and forth this last year, lots of phoning and e-mailing and letters, and things just seem to be working themselves out.

It hasn't been easy, or simple, but certainly worth every bit. I guess the rule varies from person to person and situation to situation, but I haven't a single regret. I guess the best rule is: just follow your instincts!

Many a year ago I met a french guy, had a bit of a whilrwind, went through torturous long-distance relationship for nearly two years which ended in many many tears, BUT I'll say one thing for sure, don't regret a second of it! I was happy then and I'm happy now! Travelling is such an amazing way to meet people, but I really can add a lot of weight to the theory that you only meet someone when you aren't worried about not having someone.
It's only when you're totally happy by yourself that you can really meet someone and be yourself with them! Otherwise you try too hard......well I do anyway.
I have met 'the one', albeit in an office, but I wasn't looking for someone at the time!
