Dating Rant: Child-Free Travel Bugs

But when they passed around the plate at the end of it all,
I didn’t have a penny to pay,
so I got me a pen and a paper and
I made up my own little sign

I’ve read a lot of rants on the web about online dating, now it is time for me to roll one of my own.

“Rant”, as a word is too strong. “Meh”, is a bit too weak. On the spectrum, my feelings are past the halfway point headed towards “Meh”.

Lets call this an “observation”.

I like to date women in their thirties to mid forties, who don’t have children and who plan to stay that way.

I’ve noticed two patterns that frequently (not always) occur.

1. Such women are married to their careers, do not have time to or are not willing to make time to date.

2. Such women have an enthusiasm for traveling. A lot.

I’m not talking a few long weekends here and there, as well as a nice vacation. I’m talking about being a globe trotting travel bug.

I can’t tell you how many conversations I’ve had with members of the aforementioned demographic that started and ended with the question

“What trips have you taken recently?”

I’ve just got other things going on in my life right now that prevent from wandering the globe. What can I say?

I’m a good looking guy. Intelligent. Funny. Easy to be with. Monogamous. Mostly honest. Decent living. I like to talk and communicate. I like to take care of myself physically and mentally.

These things, my past relationships, my income and my penis size ( I don’t drive a Hummer, just a Civic…. no need to “compensate”. AHEM! ) all seem to come in second.

On the upside, this question is getting asked sooner and sooner, so there is little of my time wasted.

Nothing wrong with knowing what you want.


End of observation.

  1. I’ve heard the “advice” on some dating sites for women that they should ask men if they have a passport/have travelled as some sort of litmus test to find “cultured”/”educated” men. Which seems kinda silly to me… not everyone has the luxury of being able to travel a shizload.

  2. I never heard of that.

    Like advising women to get short haircuts past a certain age, I think that is defective advice.

    I think of all the superficial people I’ve met who have traveled.

    I think an equally as good litmus test would be to ask for a man’s library card and reading list.
