Date a guy who travels responsibly

He doesn’t treat you like a princess or a doll. To him, you are a real woman, full of life – the kind of on-par treatment that you’ve always craved for!


And for all practical purposes, ‘responsibility’ here includes one’s responsibility to mother earth, the future generations & above all to his own conscience!

Responsible travellers leave behind their foot prints, nothing else. They do have an impact on the society, spreading out their aura of values & an eco-friendly culture .They love  people, love nature in its virgin form. Any extravaganza is out of their leagues- they travel for the spirit of travelling and not just to mark permanently their trails with plastics and chemicals. It is this character that distinguishes the real men from the boys out there.

Footprints

Of course, there are umpteen reasons, but here’s my picks on why you gotta date a guy that travels responsibly:

  • He travels, not to booze nor to show off like those numerous self-professed ‘travel freaks’ who’ve probably had their inspirations from the ‘Date the guys who travels’  blogs on the internet. Happiness according  to him is something that most other people can never relate to.
  • He would never ever force you to go on treks or trips just to check your compatibility, as is suggested in some of those blogs.
  • You don’t need to  keep liking every single photo and check-in on his Facebook timeline. He seldom expects that, nor does he have time to update things on Facebook. That’s one big item out of your daily checklist!
  • He doesn’t end up becoming a soda smitten, CO2 filled, bloated balloon after each & every trip. Nor does he return home with a couple of half emptied disposable bottles tucked into each side of his backpack. This may appear nerdy at times, but your kids in the future would be proud of you for this!
  • There’s hardly anything on earth  that can piss him off. From dark, beedi smelling public restrooms to overtly patronizing uncles on public transport – he has seen the best and worst of  them all. He is that Mr. Cool whom you’ve always dreamt of. Experiences shape up one’s response to a situation and there is no match to this guy when it comes to worldly experience.
  • You hardly need to gift him anything- a ‘straight from the heart’ smiley would do the magic.
  • He doesn’t treat you like a princess or a doll. To him, you are a real woman, full of life – the kind of on-par treatment that you’ve always craved for! When with him, you don’t need to worry about behaving like that perfect Barbie doll. Be yourself and that’s what he loves.
  • He seldom insists on pizzas, cafés or burgers. With him, you’ll experience the best of what any place has got to offer. He probably knows everything – from that unexplored virgin off road trail right behind your villa to that small grandma’s snack shop at some remote dingy corner of the town. And if you are that out-doorsy kind of girl, he knows where your heaven is.
  • He is not just that macho kind of guy who treks and scales up peaks. He is also someone who can genuinely relate to the inner most of your feelings. He cares for every single dog on the street, leave alone your pet.
  • Above all, he’s someone who worries that his plastic tea cup may end up harming a new born Olive Ridley turtle on some remote corner of the globe that probably cannot even think of harming any human soul.

And lastly, date a guy who travels responsibly because unlike what most blogs will tell you, he’s not so desperate after all.
