One of my most popular posts is called “Accidental Boyfriend” about finding love abroad and it is something on many people’s minds when they travel. While people are traveling to try the food and new experiences, they might also wonder if they’ll meet someone. You very well might, but the app is there to help you.
The Dating App Perfect for Journeyers
It’s not always so lucky that you will cross paths with your soul mate, for example, what are the chances that I an American and Ben a Brit were in Goa, India at the same time to meet? Not very good! This app kind of helps you along to meet someone you might be in the same town as abroad, and would otherwise not know it.
So, first let me tell you what the app is before we go into how travelers can use it, as the traveler feature is just a new addition.
This app is a “selective” dating platform that “connects ambitious like-minded poeple” meaning that when you sign up, you are first vetted before your account is approved. You have to link up to your LinkedIn or Facebook to sign up. The idea of their app is that quality matters, not quantity (which is my go to slogan when shopping for clothes lol).
They hold exclusive events around the world on a monthly basis which brings us to why this is good for travelers. I’m going to share a few details in the app that are great for travelers looking to date abroad.
Imagine an English girl is finding herself in Singapore for two days for a work meeting but then has nothing to do and no one to meet. There’s a guy there from Sweden doing the same thing. Using trips they can put under “Singapore” that they are there for X amount of days for work. They can see who else is there and the two of them can choose to meet each other. If it weren’t for the app, chances are they wouldn’t have met EVER in life. But, maybe it’s the date that would change everything for their lives and they’ll get married. Worth a shot!
While meeting up with guys over a bucket of beers in Ko Phangan might have been great, there comes a point when you’re looking for more than that. You aren’t going to find it on Khaosan road either. Unfortunately, many people on RTW are just looking for a good time. Because this app is selective, you’re going to be meeting people who are a bit more grown up – they are on a dating app, so of course, they are looking for more than just a fling.
Under each city header in trips, there is a “spots” section. Here you’ll see their selective list of the best places to go, so if you do end up with a date you have a nice list of cool restaurants and bars. I searched out a few cities I’m familiar with and they hit it on the mark.
As I mentioned above, they do monthly events in different cool locations around the world. It’s a great way for travelers to meet other travelers passing through as well as meet local expats.
Okay, now go date and I’ll live vicariously through you since I’m all boyfriended-up! You can download the dating app perfect for travelers for free on and .
