DATING LEISURE

Add a little adventure to your MOJO

If your love life isn’t what you thought or hoped it would be at this time in your life, then a trip abroad could be just the thing you need to reclaim your biggest source of happiness – YOU! In much the same way you enjoy spending quality time with your family, friends and loved ones, it is also just as important to spend some quality time with yourself, and beyond the borders of your shower or car. Besides, professional singles who love to travel are a hot commodity on the dating market these days, especially for those using dating services like It’s Just Lunch.

There is definitely a certain allure that comes from being a well-traveled professional single. In fact, a recent survey conducted by an Aussie dating website revealed that singles who mentioned traveling on their profile were rated as more attractive than those who didn’t. It’s a notion that makes a lot of sense considering most people who do a bit of traveling tend to have an adventurous side that others find most attractive, especially for those who find the routine monotony of their lives less than adventuresome.

There are, of course, other benefits to traveling besides being found much more desirable to the opposite sex. Traveling is a great way for professional singles to disconnect from their regular life and relax. Some of the greatest epiphanies about your life or career can happen when you’re disconnected from it all and seeing things from an alternate perspective. In fact, another benefit of traveling is that every new experience increases your resourcefulness. Your experiences with traveling can help you become more resilient and make it easier for you to overcome adversity.

Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of traveling, however, is personal development. Being able to travel the world and learn about other cultures helps singles grow in more ways than one. It can improve their personal lives through the forging of new lifelong friendships. It can improve their professional lives by improving their communication and language development skills. It can sometimes even improve their love lives through a chance meeting with another wondering soul. And a little adventure is a great thing for enhancing that certain worldliness we might call…MOJO!
