WanderLUST: A strong desire or urge to talk to ALL THE BOYS while traveling and exploring the world.
We’re all guilty of the wanderlust spirit. It’s definitely not a bad thing to have. BUT, have you heard of wanderLUST? Being single that is something that definitely happens to me when I travel and I know I’m not the only one ladies, so fess up! I mean how could you not have it? You’re in an exotic location, all the boys are different, you’re your most relaxed self so most likely more open to meeting new people. And is there anything wrong with it? No. You just need to make sure that if you do come upon a wanderLUST situation that you’re getting what you want out of it and not the other way around. Remember you’re also the exotic beauty in the situation, so hold your power ladies.
Here’s how to spot a typical wanderLUST situation.
Are they from the country you’re visiting or traveling as well?
If they’re traveling too most likely they’re just looking to have a good time (all situations are different though) and nothing is wrong with that, you’re on vacation. But set your standards and keep them, you never want to compromise who you are as a person just because you’re on vacation.
Quick Tip: Pick the locals to chat with, oftentimes you come away with friends that you’ll be able to keep in touch with for years and then next time you visit you’ll have a friend!
Was there alot of alcohol involved?
We all know those stories that start with “We had one shot of tequila and next thing you know….” Well those stories happen on vacation too, and even though they’re foreign and exotic, boys are still the same at the core no matter where you live. Sorry ladies!
But like I said, all situations are different. Speaking from personal experience, I had a relationship with someone I met while traveling who was from the U.S. too and it was amazing because he "got me". Because as we know not everyone will understood your wanderlust spirit.
Whatever your decide to do in your wanderLUST situation it so important that you remember to do the below…
Feel Out the Situation - We have an intuition for a reason ladies!
Be Smart - Self Explanatory. You’re in a foreign country so just be smart make sure you’re always aware of your surroundings.
Set Your Standards Ahead of Time - So you don’t get into tricky situations, and those will be different for everyone, no judgement here.
Hopefully all of these tips, will help you make the best use of your wanderLUST time while you’re wanderlusting.
Do you have stories to share good or bad that may be able to help other ladies or so we can share in the fun times?
